Last weekend camping in the wet cold in east Texas was a good reminder of the gear that I had and the gear that I wish I had.
First off having my Mr. Heater was a game changer. I wouldn't have been able to sit in my camp chair and enjoy being outside without this. Also it didn't rip through my propane as I feared it would. Amazon.com: Mr. Heater, MH30T Double Tank Top Outdoor Propane Heater (Propane Cylinder not Included): Home & Kitchen.

Next the camping Chair. This is a new addition to me but I ended up loving is as it is as comfy as it is durable. Perfect for sitting around the campfire into the wee hours of the morning. https://amzn.to/37S2jzV

For cooking I was glad that I had my trusty camp chef dual burner with a flat top. With one burner flat top and the other for a pot or pan there isn't anything that you can't cook well and easily. https://amzn.to/2HOsZGV https://amzn.to/2JlQKH3

Then my pop up tent that became my makeshift kitchen when it started raining. Wouldn't have been able to cook without this. https://amzn.to/3e8SmPu

With it getting into the low 30's I was glad to have my north face mummy sleeping bag that kept me toasty on its own. By far the best bag that I have used. https://amzn.to/2JeNAVf

Of course I had my OZ tent with me which couldn't have done a better job of keeping me warm and dry. Especially nice to have since it was windy and I didn't have to worry about it since it has such a substantial frame. https://amzn.to/3e7RKJR

I slept on my Coleman cot which I have had forever and the thing doesn't wear out. Guarantees one of the best camping sleeps you can have. https://amzn.to/3kRDKq8

I got a couple little LED lanterns that were a new addition to my arsenal and made the campsite plenty bright in the pitch black. Also a key feature is that they are weather proof. https://amzn.to/2HMp7Ww

These are the things that I don't leave without. What are some items that you have found irreplaceable while out.

I've got about 30% of the gear on your list lol. I'd say my Jackerey 500 (and other similar battery packs/generators) I've had have always been something I don't leave home without.

My Dometic fridge, another game changing item.

Another item that I was surprised I need was my step ladder. I have a lifted truck and used it to grab stuff off my roof rack. Sure I could step on my tire as a step, but not very safe with my back problems.

Gazelle Tent, another game changing item. Up in seconds and down in a few minutes include packing it in the bag.

I haven't made the plunge and gotten into a generator yet. I have been trying to avoid it but Im just about tired of hauling my food in coolers and being limited.
For us, we also use it for road trip not just for camping. I think we've used it more for that than anything else so it's paid off as far as convenience (more room for food without having to fill half a chest with ice).
