This is the GPS tracker and satellite text messenger we took on the JMT and is one of our day hiking essentials. It allows us to track and share our location, send text messages to any phone number or email address via satellite, and offers the security of an SOS emergency beacon to alert search and rescue if anything were to go wrong. We take it with us on every trip we take into the backcountry!

25% Off All Smartwool Clothing & Accessories

One of the best ways to take the edge off of winter is to get yourself set up with a good pair of thermally insulating base layers. We both own a variety of different Smartwool products and plan on picking up some more this winter! 

Smartwool quarter zip product image

Merino 250 Base Layer Quarter-Zip

We love these quarter zip tops for all types of cool weather activities. Basically, it can go from being as open as a polo shirt to as snug as a turtle neck just by adjusting the zipper.  Perfect for staying active this winter.

Merino 250 Base Layer Bottoms

Just like the Smartwool top, these base layer bottoms are super comfy while providing a thin layer of warmth close to your legs. 

25% off REI Co-op Wallace Lake Tops & Flannel Shirts for Women & Men

Capturing the cozier side of winter, the REI Wallace Lake collection offers a range of casual styles to keep you feeling warm and snug this season!

$200 Off All Garmin Fenix 6 GPS Watches

Garmin Fenix 6 GPS Watch product image

I’ve been using a Garmin Fenix GPS watch for the past few months and love it. They are admittedly pricey, but right now you can pick up any model at $200 off, so if you’ve had your eye on one, now is the time to get a great deal. 

I personally have a Pro version, which comes preloaded with topo maps that can be used to aid in on-trail navigation. It also pairs with the inReach, so if needed (like you get separated from your pack) you can trigger the SOS function right from your wrist.

25% Off Sahara Lined Pants

Fleece-lined hiking pants?! YES, please! These pants are super warm and so comfy. I recently bought a pair of these and I’m actually excited for the temperature on the trails to drop so I can wear these on more hikes. If you’re the type that doesn’t like to wear base layer leggings under your pants, then these pants might be the solution for you!

30% Off All REI Co-op Insulated Jackets & Vests

Staying warm this winter doesn’t have to cost a fortune. REI’s in-house line of insulated jackets and vests offer top-of-the-line performance and at an incredible price. 

REI 650 Down Jacket 2.0 product image

650 Down Jacket 2.0

Good, responsibly sourced down insulated jackets can be very pricey, but we think that REI’s 650 Down Jacket is the best bang for your buck (even when it’s not on sale!). It’s lightweight enough to be carried on backpacking trips, and we love that the shell fabric is made from recycled materials. I personally owned the earlier model of this jacket and it held up to many years of outdoor adventures. 

REI Powderbound Jacket 21 product image

Powderbound Insulated Jacket

Waterproof, windproof, and insulated, the REI Powderbound is a full-featured winter jacket that’s designed for the slopes. A comparable winter ski jacket can easily cost twice as much, so this is an incredible value. 

20% Off All Kahtoola Traction & Gaiters

With proper traction, you can keep hiking all winter long! Our relationship with winter has drastically improved after picking up a pair of microspikes.

Kahtoola MICROspikes Traction System

These easy-on, easy-off microspikes slip on right over your hiking boots and give you complete traction when traversing over snow and ice. Microspikes were a game-changer for us, allowing us to continue hiking throughout the winter.

Whether you’re getting geared up for next season or planning some fun winter hikes this season, a good pair of trekking poles can be invaluable out on the trail. I tried looking for hiking poles this summer and many brands were out of stock. Picking up a pair during the “off” season might be a better bet! 

25% Off Sahara Thermal Shirts

25% off Carve Designs Sweaters

While these fun, color-blocked sweaters aren’t “technical outerwear,” they would be a cute addition to your Camp Cozy wardrobe. I can see throwing this on over my hiking top before heading out for a post-hike drink, or wearing it while hanging out around a firepit in a friend’s backyard.

40% Off REI Co-op Magma 850 Hoodie 2.0
(Members Only!)

REI Magma 850 2.0 product image

40% Off All REI Co-op Kingdom Tents, Footprints & Mudrooms

REI Kingdom 4 Tent product image

Featuring near-vertical walls and an over 6-foot tall peak high, REI’s Kingdom tents have tons of space. It’s basically like setting up a mini-cabin. Not only does this “bigger is better” design makes it easier to get up, move around, and change clothing, but if poor weather happens to roll in, it can be really nice to have an enclosed space to hang out in. The Kingdom also has a bunch of fly configurations and add-ons like a mudroom to increase livability in all kinds of conditions.
