Whether you’re a camping connoisseur or doing your best to survive a weekend of roughing it, there’s one thing everyone can agree on; no camping trip can be a success without the right gear. Below we break down what to wear camping to best enjoy all that nature has to offer while staying comfortable in any weather.
Of course, what to wear camping will largely depend on the expected climate of your location. West Coast nights can be just as cold as East Coast ones. Sunny, 80 degree days can easily drop down to 40 degree nights. Pack smart with wind, water-resistant layers, the right footwear and proper headwear for all-around comfort and protection for your next camping trip.
If you’re looking for the most versatile layers to pack light while packing smart, look no further than Gobi Heat® camping gear.

Simply power up and start your day in the warm comfort of a Gobi Heat® wind and water-resistant Sahara heated jacket. Move freely in the lightweight Dune heated vest, then pack it away into your hiking pack when you need to lose some layers.

Footwear should be one of the first items on your “what to bring on a camping trip” list. Whether you’re hiking to your campsite or plan on exploring your temporary home, packing the right footwear will pay off in the long run. Find a boot that works well in variable conditions. If you know you’ll be trekking in snowy or icy conditions, consider ice grips that you can easily put on your boots.

Packing the proper gear will keep you comfortable and prepared for whatever the weather has in store.
