Parks are emptying, trails are quiet.
Hike your way to the magic of fall backpacking.
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 mostly deserted making your favorite hard-to-get site ready to occupy. It’s a lot of backpackers’ favorite time in the backcountry. Overnight temps drop quickly and later sunrises make for chilly mornings. Make sure you're prepared for this season's elements with a warm lightweight bag, ultralight insulated pad, and a tent that can keep you dry and cozy in inclement weather (i.e. freak fall snowstorms). 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 cheap beer.
