Kermit Chair The one and only Kermit chair has been a favorite of moto-campers since 1984, and Kermit devotees will tell you there's no better camping chair. Each one is handcrafted in Tennessee from locally sourced white oak, durable 1000-denier nylon, aluminum and stainless steel, weighs 5.3 lbs. and holds up to 350 lbs., yet packs down to 6 inches by 22 inches. It's available in five colors, plus a wide width, and carries a 5-year warranty. Prices start at $159 and include a carry sack. kermitchair.com Ice Mule Cooler The beauty of the Ice Mule Cooler ($49.95) is that it's waterproof, so that it can be strapped to the outside of your luggage, even in inclement weather. It's also soft and collapsible, so on the way home or if you're not using it you can just fold it up and tuck it away wherever there's space. The Ice Mule claims to keep ice for 24 hours, and it worked fairly well on one recent trip with 100-plus- degree days. The downside is that it "sweats" condensation, so bear that in mind if you decide to put in inside another bag. icemulecoolers.com JetBoil Flash The quickest and easiest way to boil water at camp is a JetBoil Flash ($99.95). It'll boil 2 cups of water in a little more than 2 minutes, and with its push-button igniter it's foolproof. It even has a heat indicator on the built-in insulation layer that tells you how close you are to coffee, hot cocoa or dinner. The whole thing disassembles in seconds and nests for secure travel. If you need more temperature control (with the Flash, it's all or nothing), step up to the JetBoil MicroMo. jetboil.com TOURING TIPS Motorcycle Camping Gear Guide www.FavoriteRidesAndDestinations.com | ridermagazine.com PAGE 95 FALL 2017 ISSUE 02 / VOL. 02
