Camping Grill – Propane, Portable, Small, Bbq – Best Camping Grill Reviews


Camping is about roughing it. Living off the land. Testing yourself against the elements. Reconnecting with nature. That’s all well and good, but it is also about cooking up a bunch of meat and putting your feet up on a cooler overflowing with stouts, lagers, and ales. While we’ll leave the choice of summer beer up to you, we are going to make a few suggestions when it comes to choosing a way to grill up your meat. A slotted slab of metal over an open flame is fine, but for a great camping grill, more is required.

These grills offer a wide variety of options from gas to charcoal with many great features. If you are in the market for a grill you can pack away until you need it, these are the units you should be looking at.

When traveling by foot to your camping site, you’ll be more concerned about the weight of the grill.

No one wants to carry more stuff! The best camping grills makes outdoor cooking easier, so you can enjoy nature.

Luckily, these camping grills (listed below) are compact and made of lightweight materials (we also list a few of the best camping grill stove combos).


Best for Specific Applications

The Cuisinart Petit Gourmet is super light and extremely easy to transport and does a great job of grilling a smaller amount of food. It got to go on extra adventures because its ultralight and non-bulky design makes it extremely portable. When folded up, it doesn’t have any pointy legs that stick out, and it gets kudos for having such an easily stowable design.

We recommend the Editors’ Choice award winning Coleman RoadTrip LXX for tailgating or for using on a small apartment patio. It is very reliable, grills evenly and has a high BTU output.

The Smoke Hollow Vector Series Smoking Tabletop 3-Burner is the model to go for if you want to smoke your food. However, it doesn’t have any carrying handles and is challenging to transport.

The STOK Gridiron 1-Burner is for the culinary expert who wants to cook everything from burgers to pizza on their grill. There is a section of the cooking grate that can come out and be swapped with interchangeable inserts such as a griddle, wok, pizza stone, chicken roaster and more. The inserts are available for purchase separately from the STOK website.


We think the best portable grill for the ultralight adventures is the Cuisinart Petit Gourmet, the most portable grill in this review. It’s easy to carry, transport and clean. The Coleman RoadTrip LXX is perfect for tailgating, while the Weber Q 1200 is great for car-side camping or picnicking as it is sturdy, stable and grills very evenly.

Each individual review will provide a more in-depth analysis of that model’s performance in all the metrics tested, any pros or cons that we discovered, and what you can expect while using each product.

Choosing the Best Backpacking Tent – Ultralight, Lightweight – Reviews


An ideal backpacking tent is lightweight, packs down small, and is tough enough to handle inclement weather. The good news is that tent technology has come a long way even over the past few years, and weights are dropping as thinner yet strong fabrics and lighter poles are employed. Below are our picks for the best backpacking tents of 2017—all are 2-person, double-wall designs with tent poles, which means that we have not included ultralight shelters or tarps. Also, note that many of the tents that made our list are offered in 1, 3, and 4-person versions.


Critical Tent Considerations


You shouldn’t have to spend a fortune to get a great backpacking tent. That’s why this list contains an array solid options in a variety of price ranges. If you backpack a lot, it probably makes sense to spend more for a quality product that will get many years of use. If you’re on a limited budget or unsure how much you’ll enjoy backpacking, you may want to check out my budget backpacking tent recommendations.



A few ounces here and there might not seem like a big deal, but keeping pack weight down is critical for enjoying backpacking trips. Lightweight tents make hiking more fun, and that’s what it’s all about. Your tent will be one of the four heaviest items you carry (shelter, backpack, sleeping bag, and sleeping pad), so it’s a great place to keep weight to a minimum. The tents I recommend on this list represent the best blend between weight, comfort, and convenience, but if you’re willing to make sacrifices to go even lighter, check out my favorite ultralight tarps and tents.



A backpacking tent that doesn’t protect against the elements is worse than worthless, it’s dangerous. So be careful about extreme budget tents you’ll find elsewhere. Every tent on this list will provide excellent storm protection to keep you safe, dry, and warm.


Interior Space

Backpacking tents keep weight to a minimum by limiting interior space (and thus, use less material). Most two-person tents have room for two sleepers and a few stuff sacks, with backpacks and extra gear stored in the vestibules. If you want more interior space for camping comfort, you may want to bump up one size in tents (for example, buy a 3-person tent to fit 2 hikers). Just remember, interior tent space is a tradeoff between comfort and weight. If you prefer hiking light and crushing miles, stick with a 2-person model for two hikers. If you’re willing to carry more weight for camping comfort, you may want to bump up one tent size.



1-Person tents are great for dedicated solo adventurers looking to hike fast and light. 2-Person tents tend to be the most popular, because they strike a good balance between weight and interior space, just don’t expect the interior to be palatial. 3 & 4-Person tents tend to get crowded and impractical, though they can be a good fit for 2 or 3 hikers wanting more interior space for gear storage and extended hangouts.


Season Rating

3-season shelters are the most popular backpacking tents and the style I’ll focus on for this guide. They’re built for spring, summer, and fall trips where you’ll need to keep bad weather out while promoting air circulation. 3-Season tents can usually handle a little snow, but they’re not made for heavy snow and winter conditions.



A single design flaw can easily ruin an otherwise solid backpacking tent. Great tents keep design elements simple and include multiple doors, adequate vestibule space, lots of headroom, air vents to reduce condensation, and interior pockets for gear storage.



Freestanding tents are generally prefered because they’re easier to use and quicker to pitch. They come with a fixed pole system that can be set up almost anywhere, even on solid rock. Non-freestanding tents use stakes, guylines, and trekking poles for pitching. They save weight by cutting out tent poles, but require more time and space to pitch, and will take more practice to master.



The world is your oyster when shopping for a new backpacking tent. If you plan to travel long distances with your tent on your back, the weight and packed size metric will become the most important one to you. We like the Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL 2 and the Tarptent Double Rainbow, which are the best in the weight category. If you’re most concerned about durability and weather resistance, consider the Hilleberg Anjan GT. If you want a luxurious, comfortable model for your family and all of your stuff, the REI Half Dome 2 Plus absolutely tops our list. There is a tent out there for all of you, and you can find it in one of the models we’ve tested.

Cabin Camping Tents – Best Cabin Tents, Family, Style Tents


Cabin tents have long been the preferred tent style for those looking for a long relaxing holiday on Fraser Island or in the bush. The cabin tent is large, spacious and offers plenty of head height. They make for a perfect home, away from home.

Cabin tents use a very old established design. They remain popular today due to the advantages that they offer – mainly their durability and spaciousness.  If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!

Cabin tents offer a level of space and comfort that is hard to beat with other tent designs.  The walls are very near vertical, which makes the tents very spacious.

The near vertical walls allows you to really utilise every piece of available floor space in your tent.  Allowing you to layout your rooms similar to how you might at home. With storage against the walls, leaving room in the middle to setup your camp.

Cabin tents are typically made from canvas, usually rip-stop canvas but they can sometimes be made from polyester too.  Typically, they will have a heavy duty PVC floor in it but depending on the manufacturer they may have a PE Floor.


Enjoy a Comfortable and Worry-Free Camping Holiday

Camping tent designs have undergone radical improvements in the past decade, driven in part by demand from an ever increasing adventure-hungry population. Gone are the days of musty-smelling cotton canvas tents which are bulky and not resistant to mould and damp. Modern tents are light, bright, and pop-up and down in a few minutes. Significant improvements have been made to the waterproofing, too. And perhaps the biggest improvement to camping tents is the integrated ground sheet. No more rising damp and ground water inflows!

Not all tent brands are of good quality!

Once you have found a tent that suits your needs, do some further investigation. Quality varies widely from one manufacturer to another, and even from one model to another. As when making any major purchase, do your research before making your choice. Read tent reviews. Hearing about real people’s experiences with a product is invaluable.

Choosing a tent from a reputable, high end manufacturer usually – but not always – guarantees that you’ll get good quality. Some dependable tent manufacturers include

  • Browning
  • MEC
  • MSR
  • North Face
  • REI
  • Sierra Designs

You’ll still need to do your research, though. Here are some things to think about:

  • What kind of poles does the tent have? Are they strong enough, or are there reports of poles breaking?
  • How does the tent perform in heavy winds?
  • Are there issues with condensation?



Choosing the perfect cabin tent requires a lot of consideration, especially because you want to get the best of what you pay for. Cabin tents are large types of tents; ideal for families or groups of at least four. They’re not perfect for backpacking. They are ideal, however, for car camping where carrying and transporting isn’t so necessary.

When choosing a cabin tent, remember to look for durability and strength in the poles. You should also choose a fabric material that suits your camping needs, preferably suitable for the weather you’re camping.

Instant Tent – Cabin Tent, Pop up, Canopy – Finding the Best


Comfortable and practical, Instant Up Tents are great for touring, a weekend away camping or an even longer stay. Suitable from four people to family size.

When demonstrating this tent at camping shows, we have seen a customer manage to assemble the inner in 5 seconds in a speedy trial. Of course to do this a few corners were cut, and the tent was treated rougher than you should treat your tent normally.  Then after the inner has been pitched, you must still peg the tent down, and throw over the fly.  So the total time is much higher, but by comparison to a typical dome or cabin tent you’re way ahead!

Instant Up 4 – The Instant Up 4 tent sleeps up to 4 people, but is best suited to a couple.  Due to the great frame design, you’re able to stand up in this tent.  This is sometimes not the case in normal 4 person tents.

Instant Up 4 – Gold Series – The Gold Series Coleman tents come with a heavier duty fly, and have an additional side awning.  This tent is a great choice if you’re looking for a more rugged, longer lasting tent.

Instant Up 6 – This tent is suitable for up to 6 people, or is well suited to 2 adults and 2 younger children.  Alternatively, if you’re wanting to sleep on stretchers or raised beds the extra space in the Instant Up 6 can be appreciated.

Instant Up 6 – Gold Series – This tent offers the same space as the regular Instant Up 6 but has a more durable fly and additional side awning.

Instant Up 8 – This tent is suitable for up to 8 people, but is best suited to a family of 2 children and 2 adults.  This tent will allow the parents and children to sleep on stretchers or other raised beds in addition to some room for bags.

Instant Up 10 Gold – This tent suits up to 10 people, but is best suited to 2-4 children who need more privacy and 2 adults.  This tent has a build in divider in the middle and is quite large.  It also offers a large awning out the front which can really help with providing cool ventilation during the day, making this tent great for naps.

Instant Up 10 Northstar – Is suitable for 2-4 children and 2 adults. The Northstar Instant Up 10 has a different floor layout, giving it a larger wider front awning and three smaller rooms rather than two larger ones found in the Gold Instant Up 10.


What to consider when buying an instant tent for camping


Knowing your purpose for buying an instant tent can make the process much easier. Since there are so many instant tents in the market, you can narrow down your choices using your purpose as your guide. Do you want an instant tent for camping, the beach, a festival, backpacking, etc.? Instant tents in the market also vary a lot, so when you identify what you’ll use it for, you can find one to suit it.

Knowing what you’ll use the tent for is important because it affects a lot of your other decisions. For instance, if you’re using it for backpacking and camping, you’ll probably want a tent that’s lightweight.


Size/Sleeping Capacity

The size of the tent is another important consideration to take. How many people will sleep in the tent? Do you have things you will place inside as well? Size matters a lot because it affects portability and comfort.



Carrying a tent in your car is no problem. However, if you’re backpacking and carrying it on your back, then you’ll want to reconsider the size and weight of your tent.



When considering the durability of your tent, you’re really looking at the pole material and also the fabric. Poles are usually made of aluminum, fiberglass, or carbon fiber. For fair weather camping, fiberglass poles will do fine. They are affordable, but a lot heavier and less durable than aluminum and carbon fiber.

Aluminum poles are light and strong. They are also the most durable among the three. Also, it’s easy to find a replacement should they break or get lost. However, for a lighter and stronger option, you can opt for carbon fiber.



Tents are usually good for three seasons or all four. Three season tents can withstand strong winds, but not snow. The walls usually have mesh material, which provides good ventilation and enough protection. Four season tents can withstand tougher conditions, including snow. They’re usually low and boulder-like in shape to help with strong winds and shed snow.

Instant Family Tents FAQ

Here are some of the most common questions we get about instant tents that should help you in the purchasing process.

  1. What is the biggest difference between instant tents and traditional tents?

The biggest difference between instant tents and traditional tents is how they are setup. Instant tents will normally have everything already in place and attached to the tent. For example, your tent poles will come pre-attached and basically everything just needs to be snapped into place and the corners need to be staked down. Traditional tents require almost everything to be put together, which makes the setup process much longer.


  1. What is setup like with an instant tent?

Each tent is a little different in how it is setup, but they are all simple. You basically take it out of the bag, hold on to the center pole area, and unroll the tent. After unrolling the tent, you snap or lock into place all of the pre-attached poles. Most of the poles will expand to the appropriate size, and the corners need to be staked down. Rain flys can take a little additional time to setup. Due to the size of these tents, it is easiest if two people help setup, but it is possible with one person. At the bottom of this article we will link a YouTube video showing just how easy the process it!


  1. What are the biggest drawbacks to instant tents?

There are two major drawbacks to instant tents. One is cost. Generally speaking they can cost $100 or more than traditional tents that are similar in size. You are paying for that ease of setup. The other drawback is durability. With everything being pre-attached, it is not uncommon for a pole to snap or for a piece to break off. You need to be gentler with instant tents during setup and take down than you need to be with a traditional tent. In addition to this, getting a replacement tent pole is much easier for a conventional tent since it is in no way stitched in with the fabric or design itself.


  1. Are family instant tents different from smaller models?

Yes and no. The truth is they are related but the larger ones are a more recent addition. Most early instant tents were hoop tents or set up for one or two people who wanted a way to set up quickly and get the campsite up for the night. The larger models here mean that these tend to be a bit more sturdy and well built than the smaller ones, but they are all based around the same concept.


  1. Aren’t there any really cheap big instant tents?

One of the most important things to understand about these is that you are getting really high quality design that saves you time, frustration, and effort. Since the poles can’t be easily changed in and out since they’re attached to the design for these family tents, it is important for the companies to make sure they are high quality and don’t break easily. This is why these tents are naturally going to cost more and to be frank: if you’re looking for a large family tent you shouldn’t be looking for the cheapest option available. That’s just asking for trouble.

Camping Cot – Queen Size, Double, Mattress, Best Camping Cot


Camping is always a good time, but a bit less so if you’re waking up with a stiff back or neck after having slept amongst tree roots and rocks. From extra large cots with side tables and stash pockets to smaller, space-saving options, you’re bound to find a cot that will help you get a better night’s sleep. Elevate your shut-eye experience in the wilderness by sleeping on a new camping cot.

Picking out a quality cot for camping is about finding one that is sturdy yet flexible enough to fold up, otherwise you might as well just tote your memory foam mattress around with you. Usually you want frames that are made of long-lasting materials, typically high-grade aluminum, steel, or titanium (if you don’t mind emptying out your savings). Get one with a durable cover that can be washed and will stand up to abuse and is long and wide enough for your body type.

Truth be told, you can’t go wrong with any of these choices but the key to buying the right cot is knowing how and why you will use it.

Think about it, you are out camping, so you are probably being very, very active.  Hiking, cooking, gathering firewood, etc.  All of this takes up a lot of energy and it is important for you to get a good night’s rest.  Wow, I am getting tired just thinking about it.  So when the end of a long day comes, do you want to sleep on a ground, or do you want a comfortable cot to rest your weary head?


Buying Guide

Whilst my preference is the Coleman Pack-Away Cot with Side Table, you should get the cot that is right for you. If you are buying a cot for your son or daughter, then the Coleman ComfortSmart Cot is the way to go.  If you need a cot that is a bit more durable, then you can’t go wrong with the Teton Sports Outfitter XXL Camp Cot or the Coleman Queen Airbed Cot with Side Tables and 4D Battery Pump.  All four cots are great choices, just remember to get the right one for you.

As you conduct your due diligence, make sure to check customer reviews on Amazon and other websites. All four of the cot are highly rated and have great reputations, but the key is to look for other customers who will use the cot the same way you will.

Remember to check out the terms. Is shipping included, what is the warranty and most importantly will your insurance cover the purchase.  Let’s face it, we live in the real world, so make you check the fine print first.

Lastly, is the cot you want in stock?  If not, are you willing to wait until it comes in? Making sure you know when your choice will ship and be delivered to you is important as who wants to keep sleeping on the ground?

Portable, Outdoor Camping Shower – Choosing the Best


Range of water heaters for camping and boating providing hot water showers at fantastic prices. Camping water heaters come with shower heads and tap fittings and are a fantastic portable source of hot water. They need a power source – usually a standard gas supply and 12v electrical hook up from your car and are easy to set up. No queueing at the site facilities for you!

If a once-over with a baby wipe and a spritz of deodorant isn’t going to do it for you on your next camping adventure, you might want to flick thorugh our range of Camping Showers & Portable Hot Water Systems.

From the high tech to the humble, you’ll be able to create a luxurious bathroom in the outdoors with sophisticated portable gas powered shower systems for the campsite and durable and instant hot water for your camper trailer or fourby. Or maybe a really simple model like the Spa tap which attach to a water filled bottle is more your thing. You’l also find budget-friendly shower buckets, solar and 12V showers and even pocket-sized lightweight models for hiking and trekking.

The whole point of a camp shower is to have a hot shower. And for that, your mileage may vary according to our tests, depending on outside conditions. All camp showers heat up the same way: you fill them with water and you lay them in the sun. So you need sun, and having a warm day helps. We found that nearly all the showers got up to around 100 to 105 degrees after about three hours in direct sunlight on an 80-degree afternoon. That’s warm, not hot, and a good bit less than the 112 degrees that experts say is ideal for cleaning and coziness.


Know your needs

Your choice on your camping shower is going to be dependent on some personal key factors, that only you know.

Like any camping gear purchase, you need to do some thinking about your own personal camping needs and style.

We suggest you think about the following when buying a shower:

  • Your budget – how much do you want to spend on a shower?
  • Style of camping you do – eg tents, caravans or backpacking?
  • Space requirements – how much room in your vehicle do you want to utilize for camping showers?
  • Will you be bringing extra water on the trip for the shower and if so, where will you store it?
  • Water availability – where you camp most often, will you have ready access to water
  • Heating sources – what extras are needed to heat the water if you have a shower that has a heating function
  • Weight – lightweight or heavy?
  • Frequency of needing a shower – are showers going to be a part of every camping trip, or just now and again?
  • Where you camp most often – bush camping or established campgrounds
  • Does the campground you camp in, allow bush showering?

You might want to think about the above just so you have a clearer idea on what you want and what you need; it may not always be the same thing.

Camping beds can made a tremendous difference in the quality of your sleep. To choose the camping bed that’s right for you, take the following factors into consideration:

Bed height: inflatable camping beds are available in standard and double-height styles. Higher beds are generally easier to get in and out of, but require more inflation time and are bulkier and heavier to transport when not in use.

Mattress size: like traditional mattresses, camping beds can be purchased in multiple sizes, including standard twin and queen sizes. Some camping beds are intended for use under sleeping bags and feature narrower measurements.

When you’re not at the campground, air mattresses are perfect for accommodating overnight guests.

Self-inflating mattresses are an excellent option for campers who frequently move from one campsite to the next and want to minimize the time spent setting up and taking down their beds. A self-inflating mattress features a specially-designed interior which draws air into the bed when a valve is opened, eliminating the need for an air pump or manual inflation. Self-inflating camping beds are generally thinner and narrower than other camping beds, making them easier to carry on extended backpacking trips.

Some camping beds feature built-in air pumps, while others require an external inflation source. Be sure that you understand what your bed includes, and bring along an air pump if necessary.

From extra-large cots with side tables and stash pockets to smaller, space-saving options, you’re bound to find a cot that will help you get a better night’s sleep. Elevate your shut-eye experience in the wilderness by sleeping on a new camping cot.

Large Groups Enjoy the Great Outdoors with 6-Person Tents


When you’ve got a group ready to camp, you need shelter that covers every member of your party. A spacious 6-person tent provides roomy comfort, whether you’re headed to a beach campsite or out into the wilderness. Choose from ample large size tent accommodations with enough room for 2 queen airbeds and easy set-up pre-assembled poles. With the ability to store gear in inside storage pockets, and options such as an electrical access port, group camping just got a whole lot easier.

All 6-person tents feature durable materials, easy-care polyester fabrics and ample floor space. Some models come with reflective guy lines for greater night visibility.

When is a 6-person tent smaller or larger?

When you expect to explore outdoors and sleep on the wild on a tent with the whole family, you may wonder if a 6-person tent is enough. A 4-person tent may be small while an 8-person tentis just wonderful space for extra movements and other activities, such as guitar jamming inside before you sleep, different capacity tents all differ in price.

If you are a budget conscious mom or a dad on stiff accounts, you may settle for the actual number of your family.

A 10-person capacity tent may still be feasible if you have really a large family member, say 8 to 10 members, including mom and dad or if some relatives or friends want to join the camp. A 6-member family without expecting some relatives or friends to join them on the vacation may settle for this capacity if you don’t want extra cost to purchase a tent.

Average families across North America have about 3 to 5 members, buying a tent with capacity above the actual intended use, or roughly 70-80 percent, is advised by experts to compensate for unforeseen events of additional companion and gears.

The experts are quite right; you don’t travel with just the exact amount for fares, so they say. What we are pointing out is that, you may opt for a bigger capacity than you actually need. The 6-person tent just fits the standard family size.


Comparing 6-person size tents to other sizes

The average floor area for a 6-person tent on our 5-product review is approximately 80-160 sq. ft. and varies in center height from 4 ft. to almost 7 ft. depending on brand and model. From these variations, you could select the best size that fits your needs. The price also varies as the floor area and its height varies.

In our product demo and reviews below for 6-person tents, where the construction type is mostly dome-shaped compared to larger capacities which are mostly vertically constructed. However, 6-person tents could easily be assembled or disassembled due to its simple construction.

They are also durable against high velocity wind because the contour deflects incoming air away from the tents’ interior. While the larger capacities are constructed with higher center height and vertical walls which are more vulnerable to high wind. The price is also much lower compared to larger capacities. The materials barely differ though. They have almost the same materials.

If you’re looking for a cheap alternative to a family holiday abroad, then investing in a tent for camping holidays provides a great opportunity to get away for less during the summer months.
