Outdoor Gear We Love – from Amazon

Hiking gear can be expensive – and also addicting!! We’ve acquired quite a collection over the years of outdoor gear from Amazon, and we’d love to share it with you! We suggest building slowly- but here’s some of our faves! Side Note – this post focuses mostly on Amazon, and is all affiliate links – of things we have actually used. If you buy something from one of our links, get get a little kickback – which will allow us to keep buying more gear – WIN- WIN!!

Bonus product –  we are huge HUGE fans of Cairn. We get a ton of our gear from our Get Cairn package  – and we highly recommend this is where you start!

We highly recommend this Pocket Blanket from OpenWorld Outfitters. We’ve used this thing more times than we can remember. Check out our review here – Pocket Blanket – and it’s a great price!
