10 NON-ESSENTIAL Camping items that I ALWAYS pack

In this video I go over 10 NON-ESSENTIAL camping items that I ALWAYS include in my pack. Regardless if I am backcountry packing, canoeing, or simply car-camping, I tend to always bring these 10 items. I do not consider these essential as they are more luxuries than survival items, however, I cannot leave on a trip without them. Please let me know in the comments if you bring something unique camping that is non-essential but works for your style.
