Keep your wet clothes organized and your camp tidy by bringing along a lightweight, minimalist clothesline.
A dry sleeping bag can truly make the difference between acceptable discomfort and misery. The Sea to Summit eVent compression dry sacks are the best way to ensure dry gear in the backcountry, and are durable enough to merit the price.
