Camping in the great outdoors is one of the best and the easiest escapes into nature, away from the chores of daily life.
Away from the city, cold air, dark nights, warm fire, bright stars, fresh air - it doesn't get any better than this.
Before you leave
Choose a suitable tent size (i.e. 2/4/6/8 men) according to your needs. Choosing a waterproof tent with a full fly cover sheet would be best in case of rainy weather.
Pick an appropriate sleeping bag; you will be sleeping in the tent for the night so therefore you might want to choose something according to the season that you will be camping in. There are various types of sleeping bags to choose from in Winning and you can ask some advice from our friendly sales person over at the store.
Pack light; bring the bare necessities that you will need for the camping trip to prevent you from lugging a heavy weight everywhere you go.
Drinking water; make sure that you bring clean drinking water in case there is no access to drinking water nearby.
Dress for the occasion; Dress yourself in comfortable loose clothing, in the warmer season. In the winter season don’t forget your thermal wear, caps, gloves, scarves and jacket. Hiking shoes are also important as they keep your feet comfortable and prevent blisters when hiking. Also bring a waterproof poncho in case it starts to rain halfway. You wouldn’t want to drenched and cold while out in the open.
Bring along a survival kit; consisting of knife, first aid, flashlight, etc.
Bring along a mosquito repellent.
