Luxury travel treats: glamping accessories special

Are you partial to camping in luxury? The term ‘glamping’ has been around for some time and refers to ‘glamorous camping’. In short, it’s like camping but with all the comforts of home – a proper bed, feather duvet, and often Wi-Fi and running water. And if you want to make the experience that little bit more comfortable still, here are some accessories that you’re sure to find super-useful for your next glamping adventure. Complete outdoor cooking system with 12″ Dutch oven (6pc) from CampMaid CampMaid makes some really neat Dutch oven accessories that allow you to transform a DO kit into a griddle, steamer, grill, pizza oven and smoker – with customizable options for overlanders, backpackers, campers, tailgaters, and more. Dutch oven cooking has been around for hundreds of years without being revolutionized – until now. CampMaid’s system is essentially the Swiss Army knife of Dutch oven technology, comprised of serving stands, lid lifters, grill grates, charcoal holders and other accessories. By combining these accessories and a traditional Dutch oven, you are able to have a full portable kitchen wherever you may go. Luxury vegan personal care products from The Solid Bar Company The Solid Bar Company makes organic, luxury solid, water-less shampoos and conditioners that are ‘salon approved’ with the gentlest cleaning agents and added pro Vitamin B5, protein, BTMS etc. which means they are high quality, concentrated and long lasting and what’s great is they don’t even need a bottle. The conditioner bar also doubles up as a shaving bar and they come in lightweight, rust-proof tins, which also means they can just go in your purse on a plane; why carry around heavy bottles 80%+ full of water when you don’t need to?

PackLite Hero 2-in-1 Supercharger lantern from LuminAID Here’s one must-have 9.5oz accessory to make any RV adventure bright: the PackLite Hero 2-in-1 Supercharger lantern from LuminAID is a portable solar lantern and phone charger that packs flat to 1″ thick, but expands to a full-sized camping lantern. It’s the single solution for portable power, no matter where your family explores. Use it to find your way around the campsite after dark, or charge your phone on the road. Easy to use and durable, the PackLite Hero 2-in-1 Supercharger recharges in the sun, or recharges via USB. It’s waterproof, dustproof, and even floats on water. It’s a must-have item for RVs and glampers. Plus, these lights were invented by LuminAID, a company that works in areas around the world to support safe light for families in need. Looprope It’s time to ditch the bungee cords and the cargo nets. Forget mastering rope tricks that only result in a knotted, jumbled mess. Instead, pick up a LoopRope – a product that’s been dubbed the “duct tape of bungee cords.” With a multitude of applications, the LoopRope is a tie-down system designed for outdoor living. Flexible and functional, the uses are endless, from lashing down camp gear to rigging a clothesline at the glamping site; from docking jet skis to securing rafts, kayaks, bikes or surfboards. The only limitation is your imagination! Lightweight scarf from Pang Wangle This soft, lightweight bug repellent scarf from Pang Wangle is a versatile, fashionable outdoor/travel accessory. It looks great in many different configurations and will keep mosquitos and ticks off your neck, shoulders, and head (no need for bug spray in your hair!). The Journey Scarf is eco-friendly, has a hidden zipper pocket and built-in, odorless Insect Shield® bug repellent. Bug repellent clothing is recommended by both the CDC and World Health Organization to prevent insect born illnesses, which are on the rise in the US and around the world. Insect Shield® is tested and proven safe and effective even for children and pets! The scarf is made from single-source recycled knit jersey fabric so the color of the scarf comes from the recycled item – no dyes are used! The recycled yarn is made in a solar powered facility in North Carolina, so no carbon emissions, either! They are unisex and come in six colors: Beer Bottle Brown, Water Bottle Blue, Food Tray Black, Soda Pop Green, ReThink Pink (made from recycled ketchup bottles + cotton), and Clear Bottle White. Made in the USA and perfect for glamping and the outdoors. If you have a product you’d like to see featured in the ‘Luxury travel treats’ series on A Luxury Travel Blog, please contact us.

  1. I love the look of that Dutch oven. It looks and sounds so versatile. It’s clever how the lid can be used as a frying pan and the lid holder doubles up as a serving stand.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Chris. And yes, a real quality product. Being cast iron, these things are pretty heavy duty and will withstand some pretty tough wear and tear!

  2. I have one of the LuminAID lights and am really impressed at how much light it gives off, and how lightweight it is. I left mine on overnight once and it still seemed just as bright in the morning. I don’t know how long it lasts off one full charge yet, but it’s certainly many hours at least!

    1. Yes, depending on the setting you choose, these lanterns will keep going for a while. According to their website, the battery life is as follows:

      Turbo (300 lumens) 3-5 hours
      High (150 lumens) 8-10 hours
      Medium (75 lumens) 14-16 hours
      Low (10 lumens) 72-100 hours
      SOS (15 lumens) 100+ hours (flashing on and off)

      You can also use it to charge other devices such as phones, tablets, cameras and headlamps. Pretty handy!

  3. Those water-less organic products from The Solid Bar Company look like a really clever idea for us to try – maybe along with the Packlite thingy when we next go camping – cheers!

    1. I don’t know why someone hasn’t thought of it before, especially now that it’s increasingly difficult to get liquids through security at airports.

  4. That bug repellent scarf is really interesting. I can think of another way to use this aside from camping. Having to live in a tropical place means dealing with bugs and insects all the time. This will save me from putting on sticky, greasy insect repellent ointments on a hot day.

  5. I haven’t been camping since the Brownies, in Dorset in the 1970s since you asked. And it rained. Continually.

    But hold the negativity! I’m beginning to like the sound of Glamping. The Dutch complete cooking system looks utterly awesome. My friends who go glamping tell me there’s something magical about food cooked in the Great Outdoors.

    And why can’t you be a fashionista in the wild? I could really rock that bug repellent scarf.

  6. The LoopRope seems to be a real game-changer. It looks to be an innovation that could make life beyond glamping a lot less stressful and much safer too. I’ve been in many a tricky situation, needing to lash things down, where I would have appreciated its reliability and versatility.

  7. I had a Friday afternoon off and as Storm Erik was stopping me getting out and about I thought I’d do an inventory on our camping equipment in the garage. To be absolutely honest some of it has seen better days. Then I remembered seeing this piece back last year.

    I’ve always believed that you should be as comfy as possible when camping so there are some great ideas to upgrade our kit to 21st Century standards.
