Receiving a Red Dot award is one of the highest honors a product can receive for its design. Products in a wide variety of categories — bicycles, musical instruments, even kitchenware — made by companies from all over the world are considered by a panel of experts. Only the best-designed products earn a Red Dot, and even fewer earn the honor of being named Best of the Best; out of 5,200 entries, 1,300 receive an award and 79 are labeled Best of the Best. These are our favorite Red Dot winners from the Outdoors, Trekking and Camping category.
