Even city slickers will go wild for this outdoor gear

Escaping city life for the great outdoors is easier than ever, thanks to innovative outdoor gear that can make a walk on the wild side an exciting experience even for die-hard urbanites. Nothing ruins a jaunt into the country like being uncomfortable and unprepared for the rigors of a hike, bike ride, or camping trip—so being properly equipped with appropriate outdoor gear can be the difference between an inspiring, invigorating reprieve, and a tiresome, frustrating one.

The innovative tools and equipment we’ve selected here are examples of how a few smartly chosen outdoor products are well worth investing in, even if they’re only going to be used a few times a year. Whether planning on a single summer camping trip or regular weekend escapes, the key to gearing up for an adventure, is, well, the right gear.

Moving our bodies, breathing fresh air, and slowing down to take in the wonders of the natural world are, we know, enormously beneficial to both body and mind. Thankfully, embarking on a new outdoor regimen doesn’t have to be a massive (or expensive) undertaking. By taking advantage of new and innovative tools and products, specifically designed to make outdoor adventuring more accessible, leaving the city for greener terrain may very well have the power to entirely change the landscape of a life.
