Our Instagram audience responded, and here’s what they had to say.

Camping doesn’t need to be basic. We believe that a life outdoors is a life well lived—and a luxurious life outdoors is a life extra well lived. Last week we asked our Instagram audience what their most extra luxury adventure item was. And they responded with everything from super soft pillows to heavy Dutch ovens!

We’ve collected the most extra of them all. Now you have to decide: Comparatively, how extra are your items?
