Are you partial to camping in luxury? The term ‘glamping’ has been around for some time and refers to ‘glamorous camping’. In short, it’s like camping but with all the comforts of home – a proper bed, feather duvet, and often Wi-Fi and running water. And if you want to make the experience that little bit more comfortable still, here are some accessories that you’re sure to find super-useful for your next glamping adventure.

It’s time to ditch the bungee cords and the cargo nets. Forget mastering rope tricks that only result in a knotted, jumbled mess. Instead, pick up a LoopRope – a product that’s been dubbed the “duct tape of bungee cords.” With a multitude of applications, the LoopRope is a tie-down system designed for outdoor living. Flexible and functional, the uses are endless, from lashing down camp gear to rigging a clothesline at the glamping site; from docking jet skis to securing rafts, kayaks, bikes or surfboards. The only limitation is your imagination!
