Camping for some people is a year round event. It’s something they enjoy and can’t get enough of, even when the leaves change color and temperatures drop. If you happen to be someone who loves camping in the fall and winter, you probably could teach new campers a thing or two. If you’ve never tried camping later in the year, you’re going to want to prepare yourself so that the experience is a pleasant one for you and your family.
Here is some gear that helps you camp in colder climate:
Hand Warmers and Sleeping Bag Warmers.
Delivering up to 12 hours of heat when activated, these handy items are a must-have for serious campers. You can keep your hands and feet toasty warm by packing a few of these with you. Best of all, they’re small, compact, and lightweight, making them easy to carry wherever you go.
Merino Wool Socks.
Make sure they fit your feet well. They’ll give you warmth in a way that cotton socks cannot. Keep a few extra pairs on hand in the event that the pair you’re wearing gets damp or wet.
An Insulated Sleeping Pad.
Choose one that is filled with synthetic insulation. This prevents you from losing heat when the ground becomes cold. It puts a layer between your sleeping bag and the bottom of your tent.
A Fleece Buff.
One of the most versatile items you can wear, a fleece Buff can be worn on the head or around the neck. It can be pulled over the ears, mouth, and nose in cold weather. It keeps the wind off your face and can prevent illness if used regularly.
You can camp whenever the desire arises. It can be any time of year. Prepare for colder weather by following the tips listed above and enjoy a comfortable campsite everywhere you go.
