It’s official now first weekend of summer, so it’s time to get out of the house. Whether your destination is a campsite, a beach or just the lawn behind your house, the weather has become too beautiful for you to see it from the other side of the window. This weekend, we found a few great outdoor deals to get you out there.

Never run out of cold drinks and beach snacks again, even if you’ve brought the whole family and a few friends. Ninety quarts equates to about 85 liters, which means this fridge has the capacity of a large suitcase — the kind you need to check at the airport. The wheels and handles make pulling it across the parking lot painless, though you may need a friend to help once you reach the sand.
I’ve tested a lot of camping chairs and beach chairs, and this is one of the most — maybe even the the most — comfortable feeling when I sit. The texture feels sturdy, the wooden armrests are a welcome touch when you’re lounging around for long periods of time, and the entire chair can hold up to 250 pounds.
If you’re like me, the first minutes you reach the beach give you the same uncomfortable feeling as a freshly baked ham. Save your skin with this overhead sunshade built to attach to the deep beach sand. The Grande model is large enough to fit seven people underneath, and the aluminum hardware makes it light at only about 6 pounds.
These are really the original hit sunglasses. Ray-Ban Aviators mean metal frames and quality coatings won’t easily wear down the surface of the lenses, which is a problem with many cheap sunglasses. The polarized version also on sale for $170 if you tend to use them around water and want to reduce glare reflected from ocean waves.
We are huge fans of the Solo range of kitchens at WIRED. Associate review editor Parker Hall says the larger Yukon model (7/10, WIRED Recommend) features a near-indestructible build quality and an efficient, and easy-to-glow burn design. Bonfire is one size smaller, more suitable for those with limited space, though all sizes of Solo Stove lửa fire pits on sale right now. (That includes Solo Stove’s new pizza oven).
WIRED Senior Writer Scott Gilbertson gave this grill a high score for the possibility of using both charcoal and gas. Yes, I know. Madness. But that’s great, because you can now satisfy your charcoal grills or switch to clean burning with propane gas if you’re cooking for a large group and don’t want to mess with so many pellets. It also has an extra burner for reheating side dishes, which is a nice touch.
Not everyone has two perfectly spaced trees in their backyard for a hammock. That’s where this stand comes in. Position your hammock anywhere you like with this stand, which can hold up to 300 pounds. Hammock Not included, but it fits any hammock made by Kammock such as Roo Single Recycled (sold for $56) and Roo Double Recycled (sold for $64).
Camping and hiking deals
These are my favorite shoes for day walking, hiking, and accessing outdoor climbing routes. I’ve booked hundreds of miles on my pair over the past year, including several weeks-long trips where I sometimes hike up to 15 to 17 miles a day. From desert sands to tropical mud, they’re incredibly comforting and comforting. They don’t have a Gore-Tex waterproof lining, but I see that as a positive. They breathe easier, and when wet, they dry much faster. The women’s size are being sold for the same price.
Hydro Flask produces some favorite reusable water bottle, thanks to its leak-proof cap and nail-hard coating. While a vacuum insulated bottle is a luxury on any hiking trip longer than a day, it’s more than worth it when camping in the car at a set height so you can have cold water the whole time. weekend.
The Camp 4 base is large enough for four people, and the two doors and vestibule reduce the number of friends in the tent climbing over each other. With a maximum interior height of 60 inches, not everyone can stand up, but enough room to dress and undress. The pole poles and sleeves are also color coded to make setup easier.
Forget playing with flashlights or trying to locate a lantern only right while you’re pitching your tent, cooking a late dinner, or packing before sunrise for that amazing hike. Attach the light to your noggin and go hands-free. The Spot 400 is one of those reliable hiking gear. A lot of people use them because of their reliability, water resistance, and red light settings that are easy to see at night. It runs on three AAA batteries, so you don’t have to worry about recharging it at home.
