What’s better than cheap ultralight camping gear? Hmm… nope, I got nothing! That’s why today we’re bringing you a roundup of 5 pieces of ultralight camping gear for less than $20, all from Ali Express. So, let’s dive in:

TiTo Titanium Spork

TiTo Outdoor Camping Spoon Fork

Ideally, everything in your ultralight armory should serve a few different functions. So if you’re looking to save weight on cooking and cutlery on your next ultralight adventure, a Spork is definitely a great way to go! This TiTo Titanium Spork costs only $3, is 16.5cm long, and weighs just 18 grams.

Naturehike Dry Bags

Dry bags are a great way of keeping your stuff both dry and organised, and should definitely be in every ultralight hiker’s gear cupboard! These ones from Naturehike start from just $8 and 78 grams for the 2 litre version, up to $12 and 190 grams for the 25 litre version. Pro tip: get a few different colours and use them to create a colour-coding system for your gear! 

Naturehike Packable Backpack

Naturehike Folding Packable Backpack

Packable backpacks are great for taking on longer trips as a day pack. This one from Naturehike packs down to just 7 x 5 x 12 cm, and weighs just 150 grams. It’s a very similar design to the Sea To Summit Ultra-Sil Backpack but, for the price, we think it’s an absolute steal!

Naturehike Microfibre Travel Towels

Naturehike Travel Towels Microfibre Anti-Bacterial Quick Drying

If you’re heading out on a longer trip, chances are you’re probably going to want a wash at some point! These Microfibre towels are available in Green, Blue or Rose. They spread out to 80 x 40 cm, have a pack weight of 63 grams, and start at only $7. 

Ultralight Folding Camping Mat

This camping mat is based on the well rated Thermarest Z-Lite. However, it’s a fraction of the cost! This mat weighs in at just 350 grams, which definitely keeps it in ultralight territory. You could even chop a few of the segments off, which is a hack that many ultralight campers have employed before when trying to save every gram.

Well, that’s it folks! Hope you enjoyed this roundup of cheap ultralight camping gear. Until next time, enjoy the trail 🙂
