The Tungsten made our pick for the best family backpacking tent this year because, with 53-square-feet of volume, it has enough real estate to keep the siblings from feuding after the bonding stops.

Arc’teryx Women's Atom SL Hoody ($160; 30 percent off)


This hoody is great for climbing, hiking, and chilly runs and bike rides throughout the summer.  Credit its extreme versatility to the nearly transparent Coreloft synthetic insulation swaddled in a windproof shell which makes the top both breathable and plenty warm for cool mornings in the high alpine.

Our Gear of the Year winning pack this year, we particularly loved the Aether AG's trampoline-like back panel. The suspended mesh dispersed weight over every lumbar contour and made a 40-pound load feel like helium. That panel pushes weight a smidge away from the center of gravity, but not enough to tip us backward.

Our tester picked the Ultra Fastpack as a favorite for day hiking because they have “more cushion and traction than your tennis shoes, but save you a lot of weight over true leather boots.”
