At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

The Campfire Defender is a fireproof blanket that covers your fire at night, keeping it both safely contained and slightly smoldering. The result: no more fire fears, and warm coals the next morning. 

Campfires are one of my favorite parts of camping. Perhaps the only downside to a campfire is the danger of starting a wildfire after turning in for the night. Many people throw water on the fire, throw sand on it, etc. But improperly done these can ruin fire pits and — in the worst case scenario — leave some coals hot enough to start a fire in the night.

The Campfire Defender is a new product to take away any concerns of a fire left at night. No more do you need to worry if you’ve done enough to put it out. Just cover your fire with the Campfire Defender, a fireproof blanket with a small vent, stake it down, and go to sleep.

Not only does it keep you campfire from spreading, it can also keep your coals smoldering just enough to ignite again in the morning. It’s the best of both worlds. Complete protection, and more fire in the morning.
