5 Wilderness Camping Essentials from Stanley

Heading on a camping trip or wilderness excursion this summer? You’re not alone but you could be the best equipped for the adventure with some of the awesome gear from the guys at Stanley. Outerdoor accessories specialists, Stanley, boast a rich 100+ year history. The brand was born from inventor William Stanley Jr. who forever changed the way hot drinks were consumed, in 1913, when he fused vacuum insulation and the strength of steel in one portable bottle, inventing the all-steel vacuum bottle we know and love today. So, we’ve got a lot to thank them for if you love a hot coffee or cold beer in the great outdoors.

Check out our pick of 5 of their coolest wilderness camping essentials for your summer adventures below:


This no-nonsense, adventure ready little tank of a bottle is built to withstand pretty much anything you can throw at it. This means dings, dents and even drops all while preserving the thermal integrity of your favourite beverage. The Stanley Classic Legendary Bottle ($30) is slim so you can grip it one-handed, and the leakproof design boasts an innovative twist-and-pour stopper for better control when pouring. There’s even an insulated lid that doubles as a cup for drinking. ($30)


Keeping your beers and BBQ supplies cool is a must for any camping adventure which is why you’ll definitely need one of these Stanley Adventure Easy Carry Coolers ($80) in tow. Ruggedly lightweight, leakproof and with more than twice the foam insulation of a typical cooler, this Adventure Cooler from Stanley is ideally suited for everything from tailgates, fishing trips to all-day festival festivities and camping trips. It’s spacious enough to hold 21 cans of your favourite brew or soda and can keep ice frozen for over a day. There’s even an adjustable bungee system for securing your favourite Stanley bottle to the lid. ($80)


No camping trip would be complete without the perfect coffee making accessory and that role can be filled by this Stanley Classic Perfect-Brew Pour Over ($20) for your next trip into the wild. Perfectly suited for those who take their coffee seriously, The Perfect-Brew Pour Over is, well, for want of a better word, perfect. It boasts an easy-to-clean filter you can use, remove and reuse again – which great for camping because it means no disposable filters are required. Just spoon in your favourite medium-ground coffee, saturate with hot water, and let the pour over do the rest. Made to work with most Stanley mugs and bottles, so you can brew and be on your way. ($20)

With all the tools needed to prep, cook, serve and clean up, you may even keep this set in your kitchen for everyday use. ($80)


Whether it’s a job site, campsite or even on the soccer field, this mega-sized 2-gallon jug from Stanley ($50) is great for group gatherings and can be filled with whatever beverage. A robust handle and leak proof design ensures you can take it anywhere and the double-wall foam insulation will keep drinks cold for hours (iced for 2 days).
