Stay warm and cozy (and safe) out in the backcountry this winter with this zero-degree, 550-fill down sleeping bag. The PFC-free DWR coating repels snowflakes and other moisture, and the draft collar and hood also keep the cold out. While it's not the lightest zero-degree bag out there at 4 pounds 9 ounces, it would be hard to come by one at such a steal.

Named one of the best pieces of winter running gear in this year's Gear Guide, these joggers are light enough to wear over tights on a particularly chilly day, but warm enough to wear on their own if the weather permits. The four-way stretch material allows for plenty of mobility while also wicking away moisture.

This team-favorite hydration vest offers all the storage you need and none of the weight that you don't. Weighing in at only 6.2 ounces, it was designed to fit snug and securely against your body.

This hoodie has been one of our favorite sun shirts for years now, thanks to the UPF 50+ rating and lightweight, breathable fabric. We love it for days in the desert, on the water, above tree line, or at a spring après.
