1.A Fanny Pack
A Nike hip pack is a useful and easy-to-access option for storing essentials — like a phone, keys, sunscreen or wet wipes — so campers don’t have to dig through their camping back while on the go. Nike offers fanny packs in multiple sizes, including a large 10-liter pack with two zippered pockets and an adjustable strap so it can be worn over the shoulder or around the waist.
2.A Fuel Jug or Water Bottle
Staying hydrated while camping is key, so consider gifting a Nike water bottle or fuel jug that your camper can bring along for a hike or overnight camping trip. Nike makes stainless steel and BPA-free plastic water bottles in multiple sizes up to 64 ounces. Some options come with a built-in straw, too. As an added bonus, include a water filter or water purification tablets with your gift.
3.A Hat or Beanie
Hats can provide much-needed coverage from the elements while camping. Depending on the weather, go for a Nike baseball cap to shield from the sun or a Nike beanie to protect the ears and head from the cold. Look for Nike Dri-FIT styles for sweat-wicking benefits and breathability.
A pair of cushioned socks help keep feet dry and protected, and campers are likely to want multiple pairs with them on a trip. For camping in cooler weather, opt for a pair of Nike ACG crew socks. Designed to be warm and breathable, they’re made with wool and feature underfoot cushioning and a dynamic arch band for extra support in the midfoot.
5.A Nike Dri-FIT Tee
It’s important for campers to pack strategically, which means bringing lightweight clothes that are easy to pack and quick to dry. A Nike Dri-FIT T-shirt or tank top is a versatile option because the innovative microfiber fabric is designed to wick away sweat, dispersing it across the surface of the shirt for speedy evaporation.
6.Slippers or Slides
Give your camper something comfortable to slip on their feet when they’re done camping for the day or when they step out of the tent first thing in the morning to watch the sunrise. A pair of Nike Benassi slides is a classic and lightweight choice that’s easy to pack away.

A backpack is a must-have item for a camping trip. Not only does it need to efficiently store all the essentials for a successful journey, but it also needs to feel comfortable for carrying over long distances. Check out Nike backpacks in a range of sizes, with up to 32 liters of storage.
2.A Nike ACG Hoodie
A plush Nike ACG hoodie or pullover makes for a great camping gift, especially for campers who like to show off their style on the trail. Hoodies made with Nike Therma-FIT help manage the body’s natural heat to help keep warm in cold-weather conditions. Or, for a lighter and more breathable base layer, go for a Nike Dri-FIT style.
3.Nike ACG Joggers or Sweats
Nike ACG joggers or pants are a versatile and cozy camping essential that can be worn on the trail or in the tent. They come in a variety of cuts and colors, with some designs inspired by natural landscapes to blend with your camper’s outdoor aesthetic.
4.Nike Therma-FIT Leggings
Best Camping Gifts Under $200
From stylish aviators to sportier options with aerodynamic anti-fog features, Nike has a range of sunglass styles that can protect campers’ eyes from the sun. Consider a pair with polarized lenses, which help reduce reflective glare from snow and water.
2.A Hydration Vest
For car campers, a large water bottle might suffice, but for backpackers who hike to their destination, a hydration vest is a practical choice that hold several liters of water to sip on the go. Nike’s hydration vests are made with form-fitting, lightweight fabrics that are ultra-breathable and won't slow hikers down on the trail.
3.A Jacket or Fleece
A wind- and water-resistant jacket will help keep campers warm and dry even when the weather gets testy. Nike ACG jackets come with a variety of features, including lightweight and wind-repellant styles made for unexpected weather on warm-temperature days, so they can easily be packed away when not in use.
Trail running shoes or hiking boots can change the game for campers, offering more traction and stability than a typical sneaker does. Nike’s trail running shoes are durable, breathable and designed to keep feet comfortable for miles. Look for GORE-TEX styles for extra protection against wet weather.
