Spare materials and useful equipment for (comfortable) camping

Camping takes its toll - if only on the tent! The old tent material tears, pegs get lost or poles break - with repair kits, an extra set of poles or other useful accessories, you can keep the situation under control.
If you want to make yourself really cosy, we have the right comfort equipment for you.

Useful tent accessories - spare parts & equipment you need for everyday camping

Which tent accessories are useful naturally depends on the type of camping holiday you want to go on.
As a trekker, you will definitely need guy ropes for your tarp; as an occasional camper, pegs, poles and a groundsheet will suffice if these are not included with the tent.
If you are planning a long stay, you should not only take a look at this section, but also at the comfort section.

Anchor your tent securely: pegs, hammer & rubber loops

Almost vital and definitely useful: your tent should be firmly anchored to the ground even in strong gusts of wind. This is where the right pegs come into play.
Yes, pegs are generally included - but usually only those that are suitable for normal ground. However, if you have to contend with particularly dry, stony or sandy ground, standard pegs quickly reach their limits.
This is when the advantage of special pegs made for the respective ground becomes apparent. If you want to be on the safe side and avoid constantly stubbing your toe on the peg, you should also opt for bright colours that are clearly visible.
Although a hammer is not absolutely necessary, it can make a big difference, especially on hard ground. You can also be sure that the pegs are firmly anchored in the ground.
As a trekker, you should also pay attention to how heavy your pegs are.
Depending on the type of tent you have, your equipment should also include rubber loops.

Tent poles - and your tent stands

Let's put it this way: without tent poles, you're screwed. After all, the poles keep your tent upright. With additional poles, you are not only equipped for emergencies - the poles break due to weather conditions, material fatigue, etc. - but you can also use them with tarpaulins. You can also use it with tarpaulins for an additional roof, awning or similar.

Protected from moisture and cold with tent groundsheets

A groundsheet not only prevents you from lying in the water during heavy downpours. It also helps to protect the tent floor and prolong its life.
The tent floor is particularly at risk if the ground is stony or grainy.
If it is particularly frosty, the groundsheet also insulates from below.
Tip: It is better to check three times when pitching the tent that there is no moisture between the tent floor and the groundsheet. Otherwise the moisture could transfer to the tent floor.

Guy ropes for structure & stability

The trekker knows: no tarp without guy ropes. But even "normal" tents increase their stability when they are guyed.
Increase not only the longevity of your rope, but also your own safety with robust and colourful - more visible - ropes.

Increased stability with tent weights

With tent weights, you don't have to worry about your tent flying away, even in stormy weather conditions. You are ideally equipped with sandbags or stand weights for the pavilion.

Tent pump

If you are the proud owner of an air tent, a tent pump is indispensable. Attach the pump, operate it automatically or manually and the tent will be up in no time at all.

Camping lamp for light during dinner

Yes, a torch is also sufficient for walking around the campsite at night. But if you want to be able to see your dinner or enjoy extended game nights, it's worth investing in a camping lamp. Preferably one that can be hung up.
There are also foldable lamps - particularly practical if you are travelling with small luggage.

Accessories for the necessary comfort

Camping is no longer synonymous with uncomfortable holidays that only particularly jaded individuals appreciate. With the right equipment, you can even make yourself so comfortable that it borders on glamping.

The following equipment will sweeten your camping holiday:

More space with a tent extension

More space=more comfort
With extensions, you can create space in no time at all for:

  • socialising,
  • Children,
  • Luggage,
  • Bikes,
  • Shade,
  • Rain canopy,
  • or a separate cooking station.

The occupants are spread out and there is no feeling of squatting on top of each other.

Inside cabins for separate (sleeping) areas

With inner cabins, you can "de-stress" your holiday with families and friends (large groups) even more. Divide the family or group tent into separate areas with cabins.
This means you can always find a quiet spot, the lounge can be separated from the sleeping area and early risers and late risers don't get in each other's way.

Tent carpets for warm feet & cosiness

You wake up in the morning and want to jump out of your sleeping bag to grab a cup of coffee - but then your feet hit the cold, uncomfortable plastic floor of the tent.
Horrible. With a tent rug, the floor of your tent is not only insulated, but also padded.
Your feet stay warm and clean - the whole tent interior becomes cosier and warmer.
Use a permeable floor if the ground is prone to dirt. If the ground is stony or sandy, carpets should have a denser structure so that they don't tear at the slightest touch.

Headliner: protection against condensation

Condensation occurs when indoor and outdoor temperatures differ greatly.
You can significantly improve the indoor climate in your tent by using an inner liner.
How? The inner liner reduces condensation and absorbs moisture that could drip down. And you and your clothes, sleeping bag, etc. stay dry.

Shower to-go

Depending on the campsite, there are clear differences in the quality of the sanitary facilities. But even if you are camping in the wild, a shower to go is a comfort booster. Whether as an actual shower or just to cool off - you can attach the shower with a suction cup or hook.

Utensils for tent maintenance and repair

The tent will inevitably suffer, especially if you camp often or change locations frequently. In addition, the longer the tent has been in use, the more susceptible it is to damage.
It is then a good idea to have a repair kit or similar with you.
If there are tears or leaks, you can easily repair them yourself.

Seam sealant to reinforce vulnerable or broken seams

You've just arrived at the campsite and set up the tent when you realise that a seam is pretty much at the end.
You can use seam sealer to reinforce and seal leaking tent seams. Simply wipe the surface with a little alcohol and then apply the seam sealer.
Zack - the tent is dry and ready for use again.

Waterproofing agent for waterproof tents

Is your tent already waterproofed? Depending on how old your tent is, it may be worth renewing the waterproofing to ensure that you don't suddenly find yourself sleeping in puddles.
However, a heavily textured surface or frequent contact points can also damage the waterproofing.
But you don't need to worry about the waterproofing agent in your luggage.

Saviour for your tent holiday: repair kits

Your tent is torn and rain is dripping inside. Unpleasant - but no reason to cancel your holiday. With your repair kit, you are equipped for all eventualities.
You can mend the material of your tent at any time and repair any leaks. The mattress can also be repaired with such a kit.

For time-critical & simple repairs: adhesive and repair tape

There is not always time or the best opportunity to carefully mend your tent or other equipment. That's when you need tear-resistant adhesive or repair tape.
You can temporarily repair tears or holes in just a few minutes.
