Trusty old swags purchased almost 40x years ago, have replaced the matresses a couple of times however the canvas is still good. These days we place them ontop good quality camp stretchers, gets us off the ground and makes getting up in the mornings easier.
Old Dual Fuel Coleman stove, works on unleaded just fine.
Waeco 50ltr mounted in the Jeep for the food and esky with ice for the beers.
About the most modern thing in our kit would be L.E.D. lighting, we've got a couple of work lights mounted on telescopic poles we knock into the ground, placed strategically around the camp site these are great for group lighting. Oh, and my camp oven's, never head out into the bush without at least 1x camp oven. I've got several, actually I've got about 15. But who's counting,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Coleman portable hot water shower unit, works like a charm setup with a popup double ensuite so you have somewhere dry to get changed. Such a nice thing to come back to after a day out fishing/4x4ing and have a hot shower just before bed, it also means you have less trouble getting the ladies to go camping.

3 piece fishing rod. Also the portable toilet has come in handy & opened up camping spots the wife and girls wouldn't normally consider

Definitely Oztent rv4, my Weber Go Anywhere Hibachi style grill with solid fuel (coals or firewood)l, Trangia spirit stove. Furno 360 degree pots. Kathmandu sleeping bags, Thunder Down Under can for the kids...The rest is optional.

I am wondering if anyone here has used the Helinox cots. If so, how do you find their comfort level? Do you need something on top of them other than the sleeping bag?
