With summer underway (mostly), we're pining to get out of the office and into the woods.

Trekking outdoors today is a decidedly more high-tech experience than your grandparents remember. That's because our gear is lighter and stronger, crammed with a multitude of functions and capable of doing more than ever. For example, the hottest camp stove on the market has a USB port built right in. Water bottles now come with UV technology to kill microbes before they kill you. And sophisticated watches can tell you much more than the time.

We'll take a look at seven camping gadgets in the slideshow below that'll help make roughing it a little less rough.
