Keep the equipment in a cooler. Fill some plastic bottles(with good sealing caps) with hot water and place these in the bottom of the cooler. Put a towel over the top of them, then put your gear on top of that. Coolers are great insulators from both heat and cold. Keep you tapes in a zip lock bag to prevent condensation and contamination. It helps to keep the camera in it’s own camera bag- this will reduce spikes in temps and moisture.
