Used and Abused: Camping Out

Compact gear for moto camping

When out in the wild moto camping, we need to have items that both aid in the adventure but don’t load our bikes or us down too much. A well-thought-out and minimal design that packs in the features is also a must. And the family-owned company of GSI Outdoors delivers all the aforementioned criteria in spades.

Take for instance the GSI Bugaboo Camper kit ($129.99), featured above, which possesses an amazingly compact design that houses a 3-liter pot, a 2-liter pot, two strainer lids, a 9-inch frying pan, four 14-ounce insulated mugs, four 14-ounce bowls, four 7.5-inch plates, a folding pot gripper, and a welded sink bag. With its 9.10 x 9.10 x 5.80 size and just over 3-pound weight, this mix of non-stick coated aluminum, polypropylene, nylon, and silicone can feed up to four people.

Another great camping kit from GSI is the Destination Kitchen Set 24 ($49.99) featured below. It’s a 24-ounce all-in-one kitchen set that has four full sets of cutlery, a mini cheese grater, a collapsible whisk, a pivoting spoon and spatula, a utility knife, a spicer, two condiment containers, a cutting board, a scrubber pad, and a camp towel all housed in a 1.70 x 7.70 x 3.50-inch Ballistic Nylon case.

Whether you are camping out on a fully loaded bagger or a sleek and slim chopper, both of these offerings from GSI should suit you equally well.
