It is a time when people break away from their busy lives to spend some time out in nature either sleeping in a tent or in a motorhome/ caravan. Although camping is an inexpensive way of living, you do need to be prepared with the basics such as having food and water. Getting good camping gear is another must-have as these affect the way you experience your outdoor activity. Some items can be heavy and weigh you down, other items can be too expensive to use when out camping. We’ve compiled a list of the best funny camping t-shirts for you.


Why Do People Love Camping Shirts?

People like light cotton t-shirts as they are very loose fitting and do not stick to your body, tight t-shirts however will leave you feeling uncomfortable and hot and sweaty. 

The materials used in camping shirts have been developed to help retain the moisture that campers will experience by sweating. Microporous laminates, microporous coatings, and monolithic membranes have been developed to help allow water vapor to escape while preventing moisture from settling in the skin. The monolithic technology is best used as it absorbs water vapor into itself while using body heat to dissipate the vapor. This is a cooling system that is great for the outdoors.
