June is National Camping Month, and that means it’s time to head to great outdoors and experience all the nature has to offer. Jeep® brand vehicles have a long and storied history of helping campers seek out remote destinations and take journeys to the most beautiful reaches of the globe.
With an eye toward camping, the Trail Rated® Command-Trac® 4×4 system on the 2016 Jeep Wrangler will take you to nearly any destination with Best-in-Class off-road performance.* For all your camping gear, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Trailer Sway Control (TSC)† helps keep you (and whatever you’re towing) safely and securely on course and under control.
Getting there, of course, is only part of the fun. Setting up camp and breathing the fresh air is what it’s all about. The Jeep brand has you covered for the journey as well as the campsite, for everything from pitching a tent, to daylong hikes and romantic picnics.
Here are a few essentials to make your camping trip a success.
Sure camping is about disconnecting and experiencing nature. But keeping your devices charged allows you to record your experiences with photos and videos, take advantage of online maps and outdoor smartphone apps, and stay connected socially so you can share your #JeepWeekend adventures. The Jeep 75th Anniversary portable PowerKit is designed to recharge practically any device: smartphones, tablets, and other cell and mobile devices. The kit includes a 2200 mAh power bank, car charger, multi-device connector cord, and a wall charger with USB output. Disconnect for peace of mind, and stay connected for safety and convenience.
Just because you’re camping doesn’t mean you have to rough it. Find your favorite spot in the woods, pack a gourmet meal and enjoy the ambiance of the best dining room available — nature. This American-style vintage picnic basket for two features swivel wood handles and faux leather straps and closure, and is fully lined and hand-woven with traditional wood-slat material. The basket comes with coordinating melamine plates and cotton napkins, glass wine glasses, stainless-steel flatware and a wood-handle corkscrew — everything you need for a lakeside dinner.
Whether you need to keep your beverages cool on the trip to the campsite, or whether you’re planning to catch your own meal and put it on ice, this collapsible cooler is a convenient solution for getting the job done. The interior collapses to 4 inches high and it toggles closed for easy storage. An adjustable shoulder strap makes transportation a breeze, and cup holders and a bottle opener ensure you’ll be prepared, no matter where you set up camp.
For comfortable camping, you need a little shade and protection from unexpected weather or bright sunshine. This high-quality Coleman instant shelter is just the thing you need, with a large 10′ x 10′ footprint that provides 64 sq. ft. of shade with an 8′ x 8′ canopy. It’s fast and easy to set up, comes with a wheeled carry bag, and offers a 50+ UVGuard protection factor.
Speaking of comfort, once you have your shelter set up, you’ll deserve to kick back and relax at your campsite. The Jeep reclining camp chair features a folding steel frame, padded seat and backrest, adjustable armrests, insulated drink holder and large zippered pocket on the back.
This flashlight can clip to almost anything, making it perfect for wherever you need a little light on your camping adventure. Constructed of ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) plastic, the Jeep Pivot Clip Flashlight features a small rotating head with work light and easy on/off push-button. Batteries are included.
A good pocketknife is among the most essential camping tools — versatile enough for whatever challenges and adventures nature has in store. With a wood handle and stainless steel black blade, this Jeep pocketknife looks outdoorsy and acts the part, featuring a pocket clip and laser-engraved Jeep logo.
If your idea of camping is less about relaxing and more about adventure, the Jeep Terrain Daypack will hold the essentials for your trek through the wilderness. The daypack is made with durable 420d ripstop construction and a water-resistant coating. Features include a lockable cinch top, webbing to hang additional gear, padded back, top handle and rubberized mesh adjustable shoulder straps.
For your daytrip adventure, remember to stay hydrated. This convenient water bottle is made with patented single-wall Eastman Tritan copolyester construction, and is equipped with an AUTOSPOUT threaded lid, silicone spout, spout shield and one-touch push-button lid.
Does the thought of leaving civilization without your favorite tunes sound a little too … uncivilized? We have you covered with this 3-watt Bluetooth® speaker. It’s water-resistant so you don’t have to worry about the elements, easy to connect, and with a range of up to 33 feet and up to four and half hours of playing time, you won’t miss a single beat. Includes a removable suction cup, clamp, split cable (USB/AUX) for recharging, 3.5-mm audio cable, carabiner, lanyard and user’s manual.
