Enjoy a cool fall night under the stars in your backyard or at a campsite next to a crackling fire. The Solo Stove Bonfire is easy to use and portable, and the best part: it is designed to eliminate smoke, so you no longer have to change positions around the fire every few minutes with tears in your eyes. It now comes with a removable ash tray, making cleanup a cinch. S'mores not included.

As Yoga Journal editor Tamara Jeffries wrote, "It's the details for me." We love this flowy take on a yoga pant, from the criss-cross waistband to the high leg slit. These can easily take you from the studio to the coffee shop with style.

This closet staple and long-time favorite fleece got an update in 2020, most notably to be fuzzy on both sides to increase heat retention while remaining breathable. One former gear tester wrote, "When the weekend mission calls for chilly weather, this will be the first layer I grab."

YETI products rarely go on sale, so snag this deal while you can. Dubbed "the only YETI product you'll ever need" by one tester, the Rambler 10oz Lowball mug is perfect for a hot cup of coffee on cool fall mornings thanks to the double walled insulation. And like other YETI products, it is super durable.

Named the best shoe for long road runs in our Best Running Shoes of 2021 gear guide, the HOKA Bondi 7 offers the most cushion of any of their road shoes. Even though these are super plush, the internal heel counters provide plenty of support over long distances. Available in men's and women's.

These gloves are a staple in columnist Jakob Schiller’s year-round gear rotation. “With a waxed and baked leather outer, waterproof-breathable membrane, and Thinsulate insulation, they’re great for frigid resort ski days while being breathable enough for long backcountry missions,” he writes. “Once summer rolls around, I use them to collect firewood or move burning logs in the campfire.”

One of our editors just bought on of these for use on family camping trips and swears by it. Why? No more hiding behind trees or being surprised by guests while going to the bathroom in busy areas. It has a steel hook for hanging a water bag and four drain holes so you can use it as a shower too. Plus, it’s a breeze to set up.

This version of the popular action cam was the one that finally converted one of our testers—a professional photographer—to add one to his kit. “It’s ideal for ultrarunners, mountain bikers, surfers, kayakers, scuba divers, dirt bikers, and climbers who want to dip their toes in pro-level photo and video editing, without dropping thousands to get their feet in the door.”

This trusty headlamp has gotten Outside editors through many adventures both close to home and far afield. It’s easy to use, compact, and runs on three AAA batteries (we like to use rechargeables). The red light mode is great for not blinding tent mates and the IPX8 waterproofing has proven itself time and again in downpours.
