The HEST mission is simple – to revolutionize the way you sleep outdoors. Our team members are all too familiar with waking up tired and groggy on camping trips. We want everyone to be able to enjoy the outdoors, and not be intimidated by the expected lack of sleep on a camping trip. Call us luxurious, but we actually enjoy our sleep. We believe camping does not have to be a pain in the neck (literally). Here are our top 5 ways to go from camping to glamping:


Spacious sleeping quarters 

Make sure where you sleep is spacious, dry and comfortable. It sounds simple, but it really is a make or break in your weekend camping trip. Having enough space to relax, spend time with friends, all while staying dry and warm is ideal. We recommend the Rightline Gear SUV Tent from REI. Easy access to the tailgate for extra storage space is a glamping must. 


Camping mattress

Glamping is all about bringing the comfort of the indoors to the outdoors. At HEST, that is what we strive for. Sleeping on a HEST Sleep System is an absolute glamping must. Our flagship mattress is where a high-quality temperature resilient memory foam meets a supportive, durable outdoor-ready drop-stitch base. Waking up bent and cranky will be a distant memory.


Glamping pillow

Pillows are a glamping essential. Having proper neck and back alignment is the difference between a crappy night's sleep and a great night's sleep. The HEST Standard Pillow is the best travel and camping pillow smartly designed with home-pillow comfort with memory foam in a compact, portable adventure-ready package that packs into itself to protect the sleeping surface during travel.



We all know lighting sets the mood. Adding string lights to your glamping set up for a fun cozy decoration and to help you find your way at night is a must. We recommend these Warm White LED lights from Outdoor Solar Store! 


Camping rug

A rug can really add to a space and make it feel like home. Why not elevate your tent or campground with a stylish rug? Adding a rug will make your glamping ground more homey and comfortable for everyone to enjoy. We recommend this beautiful Turkish Rug from Nomadica Outdoors.
