When it comes to backpacking and camping gear, two basic categories exist: the essentials, such as pack, tent, sleeping bag, stove, etc.; and the comfort & convenience items like pillow, headlamp, water purifier. Seasoned wilderness campers know that all too often the line begins to blur, and before you know it, many of those comfort items have migrated across into the essentials pile. Your pack gets bigger every trip.

My latest option-turned-necessity is the Crazy Creek Therma-Lounger. An air mattress and camp chair in one, the ThermaLounger is durable, lightweight, and rolls up tight for packing. I took it on a week-long trip into the Crazies. After a long day's hike, it was great for sitting around the fire, providing ample padding for my sore and tired butt. Then, at bedtime, all I had to do was release the buckles, unfold it, and let the self-inflating mattress do the rest. Very comfortable, very convenient.

Crazy Creek has two more products to put on the list, both new for 2001. The ThermaBand is a self-contained, packable hand warmer. Using replaceable heaters encased in a soft fleece wrist wrap, ThermaBands keep the blood flowing to your fingers for up to 12 hours. The Crazy Crib is an unconventional, yet very functional, personal sleeping system. It's sort of a plush hammock, except it's strong and sturdy, so you won't flip over and land flat on your face in the middle of the night. Add the Crazy Tarp and you're covered against wind and snow. For those who like to travel light, the Crazy Crib is a great way to go.
