Camping Gear Awards 2022 introduction

As part of our annual Editor’s Choice Awards, every year the Camping magazine team spends hours testing trailer-loads of camping accessories and gear. And it’s all to help you, the camper.

Our awards are about helping you decide how to spend your hard-earned money and this year we are celebrating the tenth anniversary of the UK's most prestigious family camping awards.

Which gear qualifies?

Unlike some awards, manufacturers don't pay to have their products included, we consider them purely on their merit.

Normally we only consider brand-new products for the awards, but global supply chain issues this year meant some items that should have been available for the whole of last year were delayed until late in the season or didn’t make it into the shops at all.

As a result, this year we have decided to open up the awards to every product that’s on the market in 2022.

How do we decide the winners?

The whole point of all the testing and reviewing we carry out is to allow us to tell you the pros and cons of all the camping equipment out there. When money is as tight as it is now, you need to know that the gear you’re spending your money on is worth the outlay.

In our annual gear awards, we recognise the new accessories that have made the biggest impression on us over the last 12 months and the products we think will make a big improvement to your camping life this year.

Trying to pick the winners in our annual accessory awards is a genuinely hard task. But some products do stand out from the rest. From classic camping cookers to cots for camping canines, this is the 2022 gear that has impressed us most.
