Gear Picks

Gear Picks is a curated selection of products we’ve tested and heartily recommend. We stand by this gear—and the brands that sell it—and many of our editors and writers use this stuff weekly. Whenever possible, we provide a link to a past review so you can make sure it’s something that suits your lifestyle—ideally at a steeply discounted price. Happy shopping—and gear-picking.

When you buy something using the retail links in our stories, we may earn a small commission. Outside does not accept money for editorial gear reviews. Read more about our policy.

Camping

Kelty Low Loveseat

$110 from Backcountry

Just because you’re car camping doesn’t mean you can’t snuggle. Kelty’s popular love seat is like a camp couch, made from quilted 600-denier polyester and reclined for added comfort. The adjustable armrests have cupholders (a must, really). Be warned: the Discovery ain’t light at 15 pounds, but the added coziness is worth the weight.

Jaybird Vista Wireless Headphones

$180 $150 from Backcountry 16% off

Columnist Jakob Schiller loves the Vista for running: “They’re fully waterproof, so I don’t have to worry about ruining them with sweat or in the rain; and they never slip out of my ears or need adjustment as I bound along on trails or pavement,” he wrote.
