Summer crowds and bugs are gone.
Go places where the sounds of elk bugling, geese migrating, and campfires crackling keep you company.
It’s a lot of backpackers’ favorite time in the backcountry.
The beauty of being outside in fall is not just in the glowing, vibrant leaves is it? It's how the air smells somehow just different, the sun sits lower and yet feels warmer, and of course, the trails are lined with gold, reds, and purple leaves that make every view spectacular. Overnight temps drop quickly and later sunrises make for chilly mornings. Make sure you're prepared for this season's elements with a warmer lightweight bag, insulated pad, and a tent that can keep you dry and cozy in inclement weather (i.e. freak fall snowstoms). Our Fall Backpacking Collection will help you sort through the best gear to keep you out there while a lot of other people have retreated indoors for football and mediocre nachos.
