Although Labor Day generally marks the last camping weekend of the summer, there’s still plenty of time to sleep outdoors. The nights are getting a little chillier, though, and the high country is starting to see a few dustings of snow. If you do pack up the car and head to the mountains to camp, you’ll need a bag that’s warm and can withstand the elements. The Marmot Never Summer MemBrain is a zero-degree bag that works well for chilly fall nights, and will keep you warm winter camping too. With 600+ fill down, this waterproof, breathable bag features a draft-preventing collar and a pocket at your feet to stash heat packs, should you need them. It also comes in regular and long lengths— perfect for tall people, like me. $329, Marmot.com.
