Sneak preview: 5 of the best new outdoor products for 2020


Every summer, manufacturers from around the globe show off all the camping and outdoor kit they've got lined up for the following year.

As always, the Camping magazine team has had a first glimpse at the best of the new stuff for 2020, and on your behalf, we’ve already looked at loads of new products, from torches to tents and everything in between.

There’s still lots more to be seen, but here we’re bringing you an exclusive sneak peek at five of our favourites so far; exciting new gear that you will be able to buy for your 2020 camping adventures. 


Vango Radiate
Getting a good night's sleep is a key part of every succesful camping trip and keeping warm at night goes a long way towards that goal. Available from spring 2020, the innovative Radiate is the modern-day equivalent of the electric blanket for campers, using bang up-to-date technology to keep you warm when you're sleeping under the stars. The sleeping bag has a built-in graphene heating element, that will warm up the bag in advance so it's not chilly when you get in. The heating has  four settings, is powered by USB and is compatible with any power bank. As well as its unique heat source, this is a luxury three-season, sleeping bag with high-quality fabrics and fills and an integrated headrest.


Craghoppers Salado Hi
The Salado Hi will be the first outdoor boot on the market that features NosiLife anti-insect technology to keep bugs at bay when it goes on sale in the spring of 2020. Hidden in the tongue, is the innovative Crawlerguard insect cover, which pulls out to stretch over the top of the boot opening, stopping insects crawling in at night. The waterproof inner has been constructed using flame lamination rather than traditional glue methods, which is more eco-friendly and uses less glue, aiding breathability. The Vibram outsole and lightweight EVA midsole delivers traction with stability and support.


Camelbak Repurpose Pivot daypack
From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like 2020 is going to be a big year for more sustainable outdoor products, with many brands keen to promote their green credentials. Best-known for its hydration products, US-based CamelBak is launching its eco-friendly Repurpose label next year. The collection includes a stylish tote bag and a 20-litre backpack, that is made from 50% recycled materials, including 11 recycled plastic bottles. Lightweight and versatile, the Pivot roll-top pack is ideal for day-to-day use, but is technical enough to take out on the hills.


Primus Firestick
It’s neat, packs away like no other stove and fits in your hand like a packet of Polo mints. Yet for all its size and low weight the Firestick packs a punch. The pot supports are folded flush and pop out when in use. The stove also has precise flame adjustment for when a simmer mode is needed. The Firestick will be available in both stainless steel and titanium versions and comes complete with a custom-designed wool storage pouch and Piezo auto-ignition.


Helinox Personal Shade
More coverage than a hat, more ergonomic than an umbrella, the Helinox Personal Shade creates a dedicated shady spot for you to unwind. It attaches to most Helinox chairs, and creates an overhead canopy of SPF 50+ sun protection. Comes with two sets of adapters to fit the frame of most Helinox models and the sides adjust to move with the sun, ensuring the shade is always overhead.

And we’ve got lots more to tell you about! See more new gear features coming up on outandaboutlive.co.uk and look out for the Autumn 2019 issue of Camping magazine, which will be packed full of even more new kit for 2020.
