In part one of this story, we hipped you to some pretty cool micro-size camping gear to make your stay under the stars a rather comfortable one. Well, right now we are back to show you even more outdoor gear that is both compact as well as affordable.

Stansport

Emergency Poncho

This light and effective poncho is a one-size-fits-all affair and is so small it can be kept in the back pocket of even the skinniest of hipster jeans to keep you dry on that rainy ride home from the campsite.

Coleman

5-in-1 Survival Whistle

Being a guy who slipped and fell down a 20-foot embankment while taking a pee out in the pitch-black wilderness, this cheap day-glow plastic piece of insurance now seems a little less stupid to have around my neck.

Coghlan’s

Flint Striker Fire Starter

Say you have been sparking up the good stuff all night, and your trusty BIC lighter is down for the count. Having a flint striker to start that bonfire is a darn handy thing to have in your quiver of camping gear.

Coleman

Can/Bottle Openers

These nickel-plated compact wonders can open your last can of tuna or your last non-twist import of microbrew beer. If that isn’t a lifesaving device, I don’t know what is.

Chums

Vortex Utility Wrench

This little bit of aluminum is a multi-wrench that covers a slew of both SAE and metric sizes and does so in an über-compact way. It also works with wing nuts, square nuts, and wire nuts. Ain’t that nuts?

Coleman

Waterproof Camping Matches

I don’t care if you split on your bike for a half-day or for half a year, having a grip of waterproof matches with you at any given time is a real good thing. Fire means heat, and heat is good anytime the sun goes down and it gets cold.
