Our Gear Guy, Joe Jackson, reviewed this classic bottle in his test of the best growlers for the outdoors. “This fat growler was the least expensive and easiest to clean of the bunch, thanks to its bulbous design and large opening,” he wrote.

The Charge 4 was one of our favorite pieces of wearable tech in our 2020 Sumer Buyer’s Guide. “Fitbit’s first fitness tracker with GPS also ­records the time you spend in each heart-rate zone and alerts you when you need to ease back or push harder during a workout,” wrote tester Brent Rose. “Sleep monitoring with ­ma­chine learning helps you wake up at just the right moment.”

“The Trestles has been Marmot’s bestselling sleeping bag for years, because of its backpacking-worthy performance, comfort-boosting features, and great price,” wrote our testers in our 2019 Summer Buyer’s Guide review of the Trestles Elite Eco 30 Bag. The 15-degree version is a tad heavier at four pounds, but offers more warmth on chilly nights. If you plan on winter car camping, consider this bag.

Coleman 4-Person Carlsbad Dark Room Dome Tent ($185; 38 Percent Off)

(Coleman)

We featured the Carlsbad in a roundup of the best tents for family camping. “The Coleman Carlsbad offers a great price point with the bonus of being a dark-out tent—ideal for midday napping toddlers,” wrote our tester, Shanti Hodges. “Downside: It’s hot. The Carlsbad doesn’t breathe, even with the fly removed, so don’t plan on using this in hot seasons and regions. Also be aware that the cords inside the tent poles are somewhat weak and tend to snap easily.”

Marmot PreCip Rain Jacket (Men’s) ($54; 46 Percent Off)

(Courtesy Marmot)

The Precip’s simple, streamlined design works well for urban commutes, epic hikes, and high-speed singletrack descents. Plus, Marmot makes them in solid colors that look good on everybody. You won’t find a more reliable, comfortable shell at a better price.

Apple AirPods with Charging Case (Wired) ($119; 25 Percent Off) 

(Courtesy Apple)

Outside columnist Jakob Schiller reviewed the AirPods when they got an upgrade last year: “The AirPods offer everything from extended talk time to tap control to Siri, making them an even more coveted piece of everyday carry,” he wrote. “My favorite features are the longer battery life (thanks in part to the power efficiency of the new Apple H1 headphone chip) and ability to quick charge when needed. Apple says you’ll get up to an hour more of talk time, which is nice when you’re on your third conference call of the day and don’t have to worry about your AirPods crapping out midsentence.”

Traeger Grills Pro Series 575 Wood Pellet Grill and Smoker ($798; 99 Dollars Off)

Bonus points for the wireless connectivity that allows you to monitor internal temperatures from your smartphone.

We featured the DJI Mavic Mini in our 2020 Summer Buyer’s Guide. “About the size of a ­sandwich, and weighing just over half a pound, the Mavic Mini is ultraportable and perfect for adventurers headed for hard-to-reach spots,” wrote our tester. “Spec-wise, the Mini isn’t quite pro quality, but it shoots attractive 2.7K video that’s stabilized using a three-axis gimbal, and it’s good for a respectable 30 minutes of flight time. An improved app with a simple interface makes the Mini easy to fly for those without much drone experience.”

Fire pits are nothing new, but at eight pounds, Fireside Outdoor's version is one of the lightest we've tested. We loved how easy it was to set up (a little over a minute) on a variety of surfaces. We didn't have to worry about damaging the patio we tested it on, thanks to the heat shield underneath. It's compact, too, making it ideal for car camping.

You can store up to 500 songs (cool) and sync playlists from iHeartRadio and other streaming sites for offline playback (cooler). The 645 also has Garmin’s advanced running metrics, a built-in heart-rate monitor, and GPS,” wrote our tester, Brent Rose.

The Coleman Classic is one of our Gear Guy’s top choices for car camping. “The two 10,000-BTU burners take a little while to heat things up, but no one should be in a rush when out camping,” he wrote. “If anything ever breaks on a Classic—which rarely happens—replacement parts are easy to find, and the fixes are easy to make.”
