You might be campsite ready, but are you campsite cool? In other words, are you equipped with gear that’s as distinctive as it is functional? The kind of gear that will make all the other campers stop in their tracks to ask you where you got it? When they do, you can tell them you went to Huckberry, which specialises in unique and optimal outdoor gear, apparel and accessories. And be sure to mention it was us who sent you there. Here are this month’s Huckberry Finds – Campsite Cool.
Nothing says “campsite cool” quite like DemerBox, an indestructible wireless boombox. Not only does the steadfast speaker come housed in tough and waterproof Pelican casing, but it can deliver up to 50+ hours of music on a single battery charge, and a wireless range of 100 feet. Throw in premium sound quality and your campground party is all but guaranteed to rock. And don’t just take our word for it. Three-time Grammy Award winner Zac Brown was so impressed with the product that he bought out the entire company.
As stylish as it is functional, the RAINS Jacket is pretty much everything you can ask for in waterproof wear. Coming to us from Denmark–where it rains almost half the year–the jacket employs custom-developed water-resistant fabric with ultrasonic welds and a matte finish. Also featured are adjustable cuffs, an adjustable hood, and ventilation at the rear. That’s joined by snap closure down the front and at the top of each pocket. Made in an ethical and environmentally-friendly factory, this unisex rain jacket is accordingly ready for any wet environment.
ManCan 180oz Picnic Keg
No camping trip is complete without a steady supply of delicious beer, and the ManCan Picnic Keg keeps that supply steady, indeed. This cool campsite essential can hold 180oz (i.e. 8 pints) of the good stuff within its leakproof belly of prime stainless steel. Sealing the deal is an airtight cap, which guarantees that your beer will stay fresh and carbonated right up to the very moment you’re ready to take a sip. Call it a growler on steroids if you will–just don’t leave home without it.
Hohner Marine Band 1896 – Bob Dylan’s Harmonica
Gather ’round the campfire like a true folk legend by whipping out Bob Dylan’s Harmonica from Hohner. As anyone alive and breathing should know, Dylan’s earliest work was frequently bolstered by his masterful use of this instrument. It also makes for the ideal campground accessory, thanks in no small part to its compact and portable design. Meanwhile, Hohner has been in the harmonica game for over 150 years, making them a brand you can trust. Accordingly, this harmonica was made using traditional materials. As a result, it delivers a vintage aesthetic and downright classic sound.
Danner Explorer 650

Savvy, sturdy and stylish, this boot provides the utmost traction in any terrain.
Full Windsor The Muncher Multi-Tool
As Shakespeare himself once said, “economy is the soul of camping”. Okay, so maybe those aren’t his words exactly, but if he were big on camping, he surely would have said something of the like. In that regard, he would have loved The Muncher, a corrosion-resistant multi-tool made of sturdy, lightweight titanium and equipped with a hypalon pouch. Not only does this handy tool include everything from a spork to a box cutter to a screwdriver (and much more), but it can even be used to start fires. This is one serious space-saver to say the least.

My Medic The Solo – First Aid Essentials
Yes, even first aid can be campsite cool. Okay, maybe the First Aid Essentials kit from My Medic isn’t exactly “cool” per se, but it will keep you alive so it does have that going for it. Inside the compact waterproof and crushproof case you’ll find a full spectrum of supplies, including bandages, creams, pills and antibiotics. It’s no wonder that My Medic is used by members of the FBI, Forest Service, Air Force, and other first responder groups. This is some seriously crucial EDC.
