Here’s some gear for the cold weather outdoors

Often, when it’s cold out, we just want to stay in. But we’ve also been staying in for a year now, so you might want to get out there and get some fresh air. If it’s more than a walk around the block, you might want some gear to, say, go camping. Yes, a lot of your warm weather gear will still work, but there are three items we’ve got here you might want to add in.

Now Funding: Trekka Element Jacket

Whenever I’m considering what gear – and specifically, what clothing – to bring on a camping trip, one big consideration is “will this melt if it gets an ember on it?” That’s the issue with synthetic materials – while they can be breathable and waterproof, they’ll not stand up to heat. That is, until this Trekka Element Jacket hit Kickstarter.

The BioLite FirePit – now accesorized!

If you recall, over the summer, we went hands-on with the BioLite Camp Stove (seen here). I came away impressed with the little stove (and the gadgety goodness it brought to the mix). Well, if you’re thinking you want that tech, but supersized, they’ve got you covered.

Doing some backyard cooking with the BioLite CampStove 2

If you recall, back in April we told you about a new carbon-neutral BioLite CampStove 2 bundle (right here). As I mentioned in that article, we had a sample coming in for review. And while the lockdowns prevented us from going camping (so far), I did take this through some paces in our backyard, just to get an idea of how the BioLite CampStove 2 works.

For when it’s safe to head out, the Outdoor Vitals Satu Pants are ready

It was back at the end of 2018 when I went hands-on with the slimmest “puffy” jacket I had ever tried (which you can see here), which was my introduction to the great stuff Outdoor Vitals was producing. Just recently, they started up a campaign for a new garment perfect for when we can resume outdoor adventures – the Outdoor Vitals Satu Pants.

For Earth Day, a new Biolite bundle has landed

I don’t know about you, but Biolite is brand that’s been on my radar for some time. When it comes to camping, while I tend to just shut my phone off (because I’m nowhere near cell towers) it can helpful to check the weather and whatnot. And that means charging. Or for that matter, charging battery packs to top off a headlamp. That’s where something like this new Biolite CampStove 2 Bundle can come in handy.
