Introduction to the Best Camping Innovation 2022 camping award

About our 2022 Camping Gear Awards

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.

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

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.

For most campers, keeping warm at night is top of the priority list, and the new Zempire Kozy Nightzzz heated sleep pad is designed to give you an added boost of warmth and comfort, whatever sleeping system you use.

This innovative piece of kit is basically the modern-day equivalent of an electric blanket crossed with a hot water bottle.

It operates using a 12V plug and the heat settings on the lightweight polyester pad are controlled by a simple push-button system.

Expect to pay:
About £180

Our verdict

In a bid to reduce its products’ CO2 emissions, Forclaz decided to remove 100% of the dye from the production process.

The result is the striking new Minimal Editions series, featuring a tent, sleeping bag and air mattress with all the colour removed.

Expect to pay:
Around £45 to £219.99
