Field & Stream releases annual ‘Best of the Best’ gear list

If you hunt, fish or camp, there’s no such thing as too much gear.

What to buy, though, often is a challenge.

Along those lines, Field & Stream magazine this week released its annual “Best of the Best” roundup. It’s heavy on hunting gear, but the list also includes tents, ATVs and even pickup trucks.

The Meopix iScoping Adapter allows iPhone users to attach their iPhone cameras to binoculars or a spotting scope.

Especially cool, I thought, was the top tent, the Eddie Bauer Stargazer 2, which has a clear roof that allows campers to sleep under the stars yet stay dry on rainy nights. I don’t have an iPhone, but getting one is tempting after seeing the magazine’s tech winner, the Meopix iScoping Adapter, which lets users attach their iPhone camera to any binocular or spotting scope. And for a suggested retail price of $70, it won’t break the bank.
