Expedition Perks Members: Save 20%
Protect your face from harsh sun rays with this reversible bucket hat. This recycled polyester hat crumples into its own pocket when you don’t need it and offers a UPF 50 level of protection, which we know is more than a mesh trucker hat can do.
At 77.6 inches tall and 52 inches wide, the Exped MegaMat Duo 10 Sleeping Pad is sized to sleep one with room to spare or for a couple to cuddle up. It has welded seams and laminated fabrics to reinforce it for repeated use and packing up.
Our gear testers praised how level this mat stayed once inflated. The Exped Mini-Pump is included to help you fill it up without losing your breath.
This mid-range sleeping bag with hydrophobic down is rated down to 15 degrees Fahrenheit for colder shoulder-season camping trips. It’s made with more room inside for side and tummy sleepers — or those of us who toss and turn.
NEMO uses its Thermo Gills on the top, which allows warm air to escape from the source while keeping your head and neck tucked in. Also, its waterproof footbox can ward off condensation from the tent wall.
Black Diamond Camalot C4: From $75
After more than a decade, Black Diamond updated its Camalot C4. The new version is 10% lighter yet keeps the same shape, camming angle, and placement ranges as the original. The larger cams now have stiffer stems while the smaller cams have more flexible stems, so now the group all has the same flex.
Jetboil Flash Stove: $115
The Jetboil is a self-contained cooking stove that can boil water for pouch food or coffee in less than 2 minutes. The design protects from the wind with a screen and has an easy-ignition switch to eliminate the use of matches or lighters.
The stove packs down into itself for transport. When apart, the lid works as a strainer and the bottom as a bowl or mug.
This is a pocket-size stove for backpacking trips that can boil 1 L of water in 3.5 minutes. It uses MSR IsoProp fuel canisters, which burn for up to 60 minutes. It includes a windshield and adjustable flame control as well as a hardshell carrying case to protect it in your pack.
Big Agnes makes the Copper Spur three-person tent for multiday backpacking trips. (GearJunkie just ranked the two-person version as the best overall backpacking tent.)
The Copper Spur 3 has two doors and awnings yet stays under 4 pounds. The steep wall design is intended to increase interior space when you’re sitting up inside. The mesh body adds breathability and lets you see through to the outside. The rainfly can be propped up with trekking poles on its own to act as a temporary shelter or sunshade.
It took a few years, but Salomon has redesigned its X Ultra line of hiking boots with a new chassis and a wider toebox. The previous iteration was our editors’ favorite overall hiking boot.
Salomon built the ADV-C chassis to fight supination and uses active support wings to hold feet in place. The X Ultra has an 11mm drop, uses EnergyCell foam for cushion, and the Contagrip MA sole is built to grip wet and dry trails.
The Blanket Shirt is a relaxed-fit flannel made from heavyweight cotton for a textured look and some warmth on breezy days. This is Outerknown’s bestselling flannel pegged for travel and comfort.
Sun’s out, guns out. The Cropped Pocket Crew sleeveless top lets in plenty of airflow and has a loose hem to stay comfy over high-waisted shorts or pants.
Kuat NV 2.0 & NV Base 2.0 Bike Hitch Racks: $749-849
Kuat tweaked its rack designs with an eye on making them more stable. The NV 2.0 racks can carry bikes of different sizes by using adjustable cradles, and there’s room for an add-on to expand that capacity to four bikes.
It includes a hitch lock and bike cable locks. The rack can be installed without tools, and it rotates on a pivot to make room for trunk access.
