    This is the NOZIPP Sleeping Bag, a high-end (read: $420) sleeping bag that uses a strip of magnets for closure instead of a zipper. I hate zippers. My penis REALLY hates zippers and if I even mention them he tries to hide inside me for a week. I'm going to be honest, if the ... / Continue →

    The Great Horror Campout is a $231 camp that takes place here in Los Angeles, in which, from 8pm to 8am, participants are constantly harassed by fake monsters and killers that all "have the permission to touch/bag/kidnap/drag you." No word if you're allowed to fight back, but ... / Continue →

    This is the blood and guts camping tent designed by artist Andrea Hasler. It's made out of wax-covered fiberglass (try carrying that in your backpack!) and doesn't look that comfortable to sleep in. Of course, if it's cold and raining out anything is better than getting eaten... / Continue →

    This is the Camp Daybed from designer Stephanie Hornig. It's a daybed with an integrated sleeping bag. Sure you could just lay a sleeping bag out on your existing couch, but if you don't bungee-cord yourself to the frame you risk rolling off in your sleep (sleeping bags are s... / Continue →

    Smokey the Bear isn't laughing. This is a video from a Youtube user dalemclmm testing REI's Storm Proof Matches. Tests include: burial, stomping and water-dousing, then all three at once. I'm not really surprised the matches survive considering they're sulfur-coated (versus ... / Continue →
