The 5 pack includes 1 large, 2 medium, and 2 small wraps to cover everything from half an avocado to a loaf of bread to leftovers at the campsite, like our tester did.

Dubbed the best trail running shoes for rugged terrain in our 2022 Summer Gear Guide, the Dynafit Ultra 50 are springy yet soft enough to endure long distances on rugged trails. “I felt stable and secure on Boulder’s steep and rocky climbs,” said a tester. “I also felt confident on the descents.”

Enjoy a cool fall night under the stars in your backyard or at a campsite next to a crackling fire.

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.

And like other YETI products, it is super durable.

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.”
