If you’re headed out into the great out­doors any­time soon — whether it’s for camp­ing or just to hang out with fam­ily and friends — you’ll want to check out th­ese items.

SOLO Steel (Quik Shade)

Th­ese six por­ta­ble, in­stant shade canopies are light­weight, easy to carry, can be set up (and put away) by one per­son, are pinch free, and al­low you to ad­just their height as the sun moves or if the ground is un­even. They also have 99 per­cent UV sun pro­tec­tion wo­ven in to pro­tect you and yours from the sun’s harm­ful rays. Th­ese canopies are built to last, with Rip-Stop polyester camp­ing tent fab­ric that has water-re­sis­tant coat­ing and fea­tures the Alu­minex back lin­ing to keep you and your stuff dry. Choose from five colors and a va­ri­ety of sizes, rang­ing from 50 to 170 square feet of shade. $119.99 to $249.99.

GoGo Lantern

You can so­lar charge this very cool lantern in about eight hours or via USB in about three and you won’t have to worry about bat­ter­ies or propane. The GoGo is wa­ter­proof — not merely water re­sis­tant — mean­ing you can ac­tu­ally sub­merge it and it’ll still work. Its light weight makes it quite por­ta­ble, it folds up/col­lapses eas­ily when you’re not us­ing or charg­ing it, and it’s mag­ne­tized, which is pretty darn handy. It’s also one of the bright­est camp­ing lights we’ve ever seen. Right now, they’re crowd­fund­ing, so you can get yours for $39 and up at
