Camping Style 101

Rough it in style with this year's hottest camping accessories.

Best Backpack

The North Face Solaris 40 Pack is a great lightweight backpack that can hold your clothes and gear for a 2-4 day camping trip. It features multiple compartments, sits comfortably on your back while hiking or biking and is waterproof for rainy travel or setting on wet ground. It comes in several colors for coordinated, stylish camping!

Best Day Pack

The Osprey Stratos 24 Daypack is the latest in stylish, hi-tech, lightweight, multi-feature backpacking. Leave the campsite for the day with this light pack for easy-access pockets, a built-in removable rain shield, cushioned comfort and a ventilated back for sweat-proof hiking in any weather. The unconditional lifetime guarantee makes this an excellent investment for many years of comfortable hiking.

Best Sleeping Bag

The Sierra Designs Pyro Maniac 15/30 can go from hot to cold weather in the blink of the eye for year round camping comfort. The removable Dual Temp down torso panel allows for a quick change if the temp changes. Remove the torso panel in warm weather and use it as a pillow!

Best Hat

Our favorite hiking hat comes from Down Under in Australia. The BC Hats Cool as a Breeze Australian Leather hat is crushable, lightweight, made with water resistant leather and lined with a breathable mesh crown for hot days. It comes in easy-fit sizes for men and women, and has been seen on celebrities including The Duchess of Cambirdge, Princess Kate.

Best Way to Stay Hydrated

The Vapur® Element and integrated SuperCap™ is a flexible, lightweight, reusable, BPA-Free, environmentally friendly super bottle that folds flat when it's empty. Available in two high-capacity sizes, the Vapur Element keeps you hydrated wherever your travels take you. Add on the "Sweater" to insulate and cover your bottle for high-temperature hikes.

Best Hiking Shoes

Merrell always delivers on their promises for fit, comfort and features. Their mid-length lightweight hiking shoe comes in several colors as well as both men's and women's sizes, and provides cool comfort to keep you going on day or multi-day excursions. Be advised, though, that they are not waterproof or insulated, and are better for warm-weather hiking.

Best Hi-Tech Accessories

The coolest accessory award goes to the Gorillatorch LED Light by Joby. This flashlight has flexible, wrappable legs and magnetic feet to easily attach to tent poles (inside or out), or stand up tall on a camping table, even on uneven, slick or wet surfaces. It's water-resistant, adjustable up to 65 lumens, and can last from 20-80 hours on three AA batteries.

Best Tent

REI Kingdom 4 Tent features a zipper divider wall for extra privacy. Great when camping with parents, siblings or for personal space when changing or sleeping, there's a door on each side for easy private access. It comes in 4, 6, or 8 person sizes.

Your style is simply whatever you want to wear! Just wear whatever feels comfortable, or whatever you think looks good, and it is your style (: It doesn't matter if it's not entirely individual and unique, as long as it's what you feel happy wearing.

I love both my parents equally, but I prefer to spend time with my dad. My father works abroad so I see him a lot less than my mother, but it means that when I see him it feels more special :3

To be honest, this is probably just something you have to bear. I know that sometimes relatives can be irritating, but they only visit often because they care about you and want to see you (: Unless there is a real reason you don't want them to visit - for example, if they are unkind to you - then you should just endure it.  Or you could mention it to your parents and see if they can sort it out? This is something lots of kids have to deal with, me included, and it's just part of life! You are lucky to have grandparents who care about you so much c:
