Maybe it’s just us, but we get quite attached to certain bits of camping kit. After they’ve accompanied us on multiple adventures, or after we’ve carried them hundreds of miles on backpacking trips, they start to feel like trusted companions. And yeah, ok, it’s just a camping mug – but it’s our camping mug. The one we had when we saw that epic cloud inversion over morning coffee, or even the one that came winter camping when we invented the ‘hot choc-um’ (that’s hot chocolate laced with spiced rum, in case you were wondering). The GSI Outdoors Bugaboo Cup is just the sort of mug that’ll become a trusty backpacking buddy. Tough, lightweight and packable – this one is even designed to slot neatly onto the base of a standard 1-litre water bottle, or alternatively, to hold a 110 g gas canister

The best outdoor gear is stuff that solves a problem – like how to cook on the trail, in all weather. And if a piece of kit solves a particular problem in a unique and effective way, then all the better. GSI Outdoors is a US brand that understands this intimately. It embodies their entire approach to manufacturing outdoor gear. In fact, the clue is even in the name: those three initials, GSI, stand for Gear Solutions and Innovations.
Established back in 1985 and now based in Spokane, Washington, in the heart of the rugged Pacific Northwest, the company is still family-owned. But its passion for great food in the great outdoors is unwavering, even after three decades. The result is a superb range of lightweight cooking equipment designed for backpackers and wild campers. Because nothing sustains your adventures like a hot meal. Besides, as we all know, food always tastes better when cooked and eaten outside.
