The outdoor equipment used in camping varies with each particular type of camping. For instance, in survival camping, the equipment consists of small items that have the purpose of helping out the camper in providing food, heat, and safety. The equipment used in this type of camping must be lightweight and it is restricted at only the mandatory items. Other types of camping such as winter camping, involve specially designed equipment in terms of tents or clothing which is strong enough to protect the camper’s body from the wind and cold.
