Realised you can't find your camping chairs at the last minute? Or maybe you've lost a tent pole since your last trip? Whatever the situation, we've all been there. Having the wrong camping kit can ruin a weekend.
We've tested a wide range of outdoor equipment at Which?, to bring you the best recommendations for your next camping trip in the UK.
Find out five products we think are must-haves for your next excursion and what you need to know before you buy.
A pop-up tent is a great option if you're looking for a two-person or three-person and, at a push, a four-person tent.
Although they won't be as suitable for families of four, they're a nifty alternative for couples or a small group of friends.
Here are our top three tips for buying a tent:
While lugging around a camping chair might seem like more effort than it's worth, a comfortable seat is always better than the muddy ground.
Our camping chair testing showed us that, while comfort is paramount, portability is also an important factor and, unfortunately, there generally seems to be a trade-off between the two.
It's best to expect that heavily padded chairs with good support are going to be difficult to carry around.
However, it's recommended that perishables are removed and consumed once the temperature inside the cooler rises above 5°C.
To help separate food items and organise your cooler, it's also a good idea to pack food into Most, although not all, are leakproof, so they can even be filled with water and frozen to be used as homemade ice blocks.
The difference between a regular flask and a vacuum flask is vast.
The former will provide you with a few hours of hot tea or coffee at best, and the latter, as proved by our Best Buy, will provide at least 24 hours of your steaming hot drink of choice.
The key difference is in the vacuum flask's construction. Its double-walled insulation keeps heat from coming in and out of the main body. The space in between those walls creates a vacuum and this slows heat transfer.
Usually, the inner wall of the flask is also silvered to prevent heat transfer via radiation.
As well as testing the insulation, we also drop-tested vacuum flasks and rated them for build quality and ease of cleaning.
A camping stove is essential if you want to enjoy hot food and drink throughout your camping trip. Picking up a poorly designed one could mean you have to wait longer to enjoy a delicious fry-up in the morning.
Which? researchers spent a rainy week in a field cooking up eggs and sausages - assessing both the stoves' ease of use and portability.
