Cooler Light

by Coghlan's

Coolers and small refrigerators do not come with lights and in a dark campground, it can be difficult to find what you are looking for.

This little light is a single LED with an acrylic lens that can be attached to the underside of the cooler lid with adhesive. It automatically turns on when the lid is raised and shuts off when the lid is closed.Even if the lid is not shut securely, the light will shut itself off after 20 seconds.

Now you can find the right beverage or snack even in the dark.

The light measures 1 inch by 1 inch and is 1 inch tall and weighs 5 ounces.

Solar Powered Hat

with mini cooling fan

It's great to have a visor cap on in the sun, but this one not only has a personal fan that blows air on your face, but it is solar powered. No batteries are required. Now you don't have to hold a personal fan or sit beside one. You can take it with you.

The hat weighs 1 pound and is adjustable. It comes in several colors besides the yellow shown here. Now you can keep cool and be green all at the same time.This hat is perfect for golfing, hiking, fishing or any outdoor activity when you are in the sun.


Shower Organizer

There is seldom room to move around in a camping shower and certainly few places to put your shower items. This mesh shower organizer has three large and three small pockets to hold what you need without filling with water. It also features a hook or either side for hang-able items such as scrub brushes or loofahs.You can leave the shampoo bottles in the organizer stored upside down. You needn't remove to use.
Keep your shower items handy and out of the way. A great addition to any bathroom, whether camping or not. This organizer weights 1 pound.

I'm thinking of sticking one of those cooler lights in my fridge. Not that there's much that I can't see in there.

These are great ideas for lighting - and not just for campers. My kids loved to wear those head lamps too.

Thank you. I love the headlamps too. I have one hanging by the door.

These are a great idea for campers. Many of my friends are campers and love all the fun gizmos and gadgets available. I had no idea. I love the head lamps, my kids would have playing with those at home running around in the back yard catching fire flies and on and on the fun would go. Great product research thanks :)K

I used to dog sled up north and it we would always be doing something in the dark. Had to have one. I love 'em.

I'm a long time veteran of the Glastonbury Festival, which can be tough camping conditions! I've got one of those LED head-lamps and I can certainly recommend it. When space is at a premium, and there are no shelves, then having your hands free with light is exactly what you need.
