Now that fall is in full swing, the days are getting short and the temperatures are dropping. But it isn’t time to pack your camping gear into the bins at the back of your closet just yet — the leaves aren’t gone, and shorter days mean earlier sunsets (and more time for campfires). Besides, with the appropriate cold-weather camping gear, you can extend your adventure season to 12 months a year. In fact, now is the perfect time to stock up on new camping gear for late fall, thanks to savings of up to 50 percent at REI.
Kelty Sine 20 Sleeping Bag
This 20-degree sleeping bag from Kelty is stuffed with water-resistant 800-fill down that provides warmth without the bulk. It also has a unique diagonal zipper closure that lets you open up the upper portion or foot box, separately, when it gets too toasty.
Klymit Top Down Pillow
It always seems like a good idea to use a crumpled-up sweatshirt as a pillow, but it never works. Bring a dedicated camp pillow that’s lightweight and packable, like Klymit’s Top Down, instead.
Nemo Equipment Vector Insulated Air Pad with Pump
Not only does the Vector have an extra layer of insulation that makes it comfortable down to lower temps, but it also includes a built-in foot pump that helps inflate it fast without getting light-headed.
Mountain Hardwear Ghost Sky 2 Tent
At roughly four pounds, Mountain Hardwear’s Ghost Sky 2 is lightweight and small enough to fit in a backpack. If you’re looking for something a little roomier, check out Therm-a-Rest’s Tranquility 4, which is also over $100 off.
The North Face Ventrix Insulated Jacket
Camping at this time of year calls for extra layers. Like your favorite puffy, the Ventrix Jacket is insulated, but it also breathes well enough so that you can wear it hiking without overheating.
Black Diamond Storm Headlamp
The Storm provides 350 lumens of light and multiple modes — including red, blue and green night vision — in a package that’s fully waterproof.
