From shovels to winter booties, this is the best camping gear you'll find to keep you warm for winter adventures.
Sea to Summit Comfort Plus Insulated Sleeping Pad$199 1 of 11
Even with a high-quality sleeping bag, you'll need a mat to get you off the ground and keep you warm at night. This sleeping pad from Sea to Summit offers thermolite insulation to prevent air circulation and heat loss, while the 596 Air Sprung Cells provide extra comfort and support. It's also extremely durable, and should one of the air pockets puncture, the rest of the mattress won't go flat.
Western Mountaineering Flash Down Booties$69 2 of 11
When it's time to kick off your boots, these booties will keep your toes from freezing and your feet warm and toasty while you sleep, thanks to goose down insulation. They're also extremely lightweight and compressible, which makes them easy to squeeze into your pack. A foam insole makes them comfortable to walk in, and the 70 denier coated nylon rand outsole ensures they'll last for plenty of expeditions.
Outdoor Research Stormtracker Sensor Gloves$75 3 of 11
Whether you're skiing, ice climbing or hiking your favorite trail, the Stormtracker glove offers excellent protection from cold weather while maintaining breathability and dexterity. The soft shell outer fabric helps to eliminate wind chill, while a tricot lining does a good job retaining heat. And thanks to the updated sensor fingertips, you can still operate all of your mobile devices.
Ortovox Shovel Beast$60 4 of 11
From digging an emergency shelter to escaping an avalanche, a snow shovel is a must for outdoor winter adventures. This one from Ortovox has a pack-friendly blade but is still able to move some serious snow. Versatile grips allow for multiple hand positions for right- and left-handers, and the oval-shaped shaft provides very good ergonomics.
Nemo Sonic$529 5 of 11
The premium 850-fill-power duck down offers warm protection in negative temperatures while maintaining a relatively low weight that packs down small. While this is mainly what bumps the price up, it's the design of the Thermo Gills that separates it from other cold weather sleeping bags in its class. When the side zipper "gills" are left open, the extra airflow to your core can be used to stay comfortable in rising morning temperatures up to 20 degrees.
Jetboil Sumo Cooking System$139 6 of 11
Thanks to Jetboil's proprietary regulator, bringing water to a boil is easy and fast--even in temperatures into the 20s. This Sumo version is large enough to cook for a group, and the reliable push-button igniter is easy to get started. It's also easy to control simmer temperatures and comes with a pour spout and strainer.
Under Armour Clackamas 200$130 7 of 11
Capable of tackling deep snow, the 10.5-inch Clackamas 200 from Under Armour are water-resistant and built for the most rugged treks you can think up. A memory foam footbed, Ortholite sockliner and PrimaLoft insulation will also keep your feet warm, toasty and plenty comfortable while you're out on the trail.
Osprey Variant 52$200 8 of 11
One of the most versatile backpacks on the market, the Variant 52 gets excellent marks for stability and comfort out on the trail. It also feels like it has more room than most other 52-liter packs, and the extra-wide 6-inch collar makes packing a simple task. When you want to save weight, a removable dual compartment is a feature you'll definitely appreciate.
Attmu 2-Liter Hot Water Bottle$10.99 9 of 11
If you can only bring one luxury item, a hot water bottle should be it. You can put it in your jacket, in the bottom of your sleeping bag or hold it in your hands to warm frozen fingers. We like this one from Attmu because it's durable and the wide mouth makes it easy to pour boiling water into.
Patagonia Hyper Puff Insulated Hoodie$299 10 of 11
The warmest jacket in Patagonia's lineup, this jacket will keep you warm in the harshest of alpine conditions thanks to its innovative synthetic 100-gram HyperDas insulation, which retains heat by creating dead air space. It's also extremely lightweight, waterproof, windproof and packs down small when you need to put it in your pack--what else could you possibly ask for?
