October is almost over. And that means, with any luck, we’re on the fringes of seeing our first snowfall. That means, at least for us, that it’s time to start bundling up a bit more. After all, it’s not like we’re going to stop heading out into the great outdoors just because it’s getting a bit chilly.
Lucky for us, Amazon, the online retail giant, has no shortage of rock-solid offerings to help up trek our way through the upcoming colder part of the year. We’ve dug deep into their catalog to find this loadout of fall-appropriate, camping-ready outdoor gear that looks just as good as it performs. From bladed tools to cozy technical apparel and everything in-between, this is some of the best gear you can get on Amazon.
Red Wing Heritage Leather Gloves
Made from chrome-tanned buckskin leather, these gloves are as beautiful as they are durable and capable. Whether working on the ranch or just trying to keep your hands cold during a winter chill, these reinforced digit-protectors are guaranteed to serve you well.
Stanley Master Series Hip Flask
Spirit aficionados can tell you that a swig of something strong can make even the coldest nights more bearable. And what better to manage that than with one of legendary outfitter Stanley’s Master Series Hip Flasks? This dishwasher-safe, rustproof 8oz vessel is perfect for hauling a dram or two of your favorite campground whiskey.
Filson Wool Watch Cap
Since most of your body’s warmth is lost through the top of your head, it’s important to keep your cranium wrapped-up. And that’s exactly why Filson built their Wool Watch Cap. It’s made from comfortable natural materials — not scratchy polyester — and it definitely helps that it’s a handsome beanie if there ever was one.
Mr. Lentz Leather Biker Wallet
It’s always important to keep an ID and some form of money on you. However, if you lose your wallet in the woods, you might not ever see it again. Mitigate that risk by hauling your precious cargo in the Mr. Lentz Leather Biker Wallet. It’s handsome, capacious, and comes with a chain to ensure you don’t leave it behind.
Buck Knives 120 General Fixed Blade Knife
Buck Knives has been building superb cutting tools for more than a century, and this bowie knife you see before you is one of their best fixed blades. It features a sturdy and beefy 420HC clip-point blade mated to a brass and Cocobolo wood handle — making it both reliably tough and incredibly handsome. Best of all, it’s made in the USA and comes with a lifetime warranty.
Nordic Pocket Saw Premium
Cold weather calls for shelter and campfire. And both of those are hard to come by in the wilderness without a wood saw. Of course, saws can also be cumbersome — which is why the Scandinavians had the good sense to create the Nordic Pocket Saw. This pocketable toothed cutter is powerful enough to eat through a tree trunk, but travels easily. And this special edition comes with beautiful, sturdy leather handles.
Helinox One Camping Chair
Sitting around a campfire really only requires two things: a fire and a place to put your rear end. And the latter can be taken care of with Helinox’s superb Chair One. This one boasts Real Tree camo, it can collapse down to an easily-stored format, and it can still hold up to 320 pounds.
Vivobarefoot Tracker Hiking Sneakerboots
Vivobarefoot is probably best known for their minimalist running shoes. But they’ve also built an excellent pair of ultralight hiking sneakerboots in their Trackers you see here. They have a 100% leather upper, a grippy rubber outsole, and they’re designed to be a lot more ergonomic than the competition.
Hamilton Khaki King Field Watch
An absolute stunner of a field watch, the Hamilton Khaki King is just as reliable as it is handsome. That’s because it boasts an accurate automatic movement, a sturdy stainless steel case, and — in this case — a beautiful and comfortable leather strap. When it comes to field watches, this one is a winner.
Arc’teryx Therme Parka
Hailing from the Great White North that is Canada, Arc’teryx knows a thing or two about cold weather. As such, you know you can trust in their minimalist-style Therme Parka to keep you warm and dry. It boasts clean lines, compact-yet-warm down insulation, a GORE-TEX membrane, and so much more.
