Anyone who has ever been camping knows that real estate in a car, truck or SUV is limited when it comes to packing in all the camping goodies. We’ve all been on those camping trips where nothing is organized and you can’t find anything in the car. It seems that the more people and the less space you have, the easier it is to quickly become a sh*t show. Well, Kelty is here to help you Get Your Sh*t Together (G.Y.S.T.) with their simple but unique collapsible camping bin system. The bins come in four sizes: the big G, original G, little G, and wee G and range in price from $12-90.
Camping is supposed to be fun not stressful and frustrating. Nothing will ruin a camping trip quicker than a disorganized mess falling out of your car as you pull up to your campsite late at night and try to find your headlamp to set up your tent. Organization is paramount in this situation and for a long time, Rubbermaid bins or Action Packers were the first line of defense in the fight against this disorganized chaos. Kelty’s new line of “Get Your Sh*t Together” collapsible camping bins is changing all of this. What do you do with all of those plastic bins after you’ve unpacked everything at the campsite? There remains an unsightly pile of bins with no purpose until you return home. Kelty’s GYST bins collapse into a neat pile taking up little to no prime real estate at camp or in your car. The bins are made of sturdy steel wire frames to hold their shape, a durable polyester exterior and an easy-to-clean interior lining.
Why is all of this important?
The greatest lesson I’ve learned in having a smooth and easy camping trip is not in the camping or the traveling so much. It is in the transitions between home and the camp spot then again in the unpacking from the campsite to home. The transition of packing and unpacking can seem like a monumental task when you’re not organized. Kelty’s GYST bins are here to help you Get Your Sh*t Together. Besides the lofty price tag, the only potential drawback I see to these is their ability to stack if they’re not packed full, but this remains to be seen.
