Arguably the most important piece of gear for winter camping. Luckily, there are some great bags out there. In the down category, you can’t go wrong with the 900-fill Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer (from $570). If you prefer synthetic, The North Face Aleutian with Heatseeker Eco ($259) insulation offers one of the best warmth-to-weight ratios, trapping body heat and keeping you toasty all night.
Keep your tent dry and mud-free with a hanging shoe rack. It’s a lightweight storage option that goes a long way toward keeping your space clean in the winter. We like iKamper’s eight-pocket version ($59).
Don’t camp without the Kammok Firebelly Trail Quilt ($279). This down blanket can go over your sleeping bag, or be used on its own. And at only 24 ounces, it’s a win-win.

Need more light at night? Try the Luminoodle Light Rope (From $20). It’s lightweight, completely flexible, and can be strung all around your tent. It plugs into any USB power source and has a lantern mode, so it’s great for use on the go.
If you’re looking to save space, check out the Coleman Fold-N-Go foldable stove ($125). It lets you cook two meals at once in large pots, with a uniform heat flow. This foldable burner gives you some of the same benefits of a standard stove, but in a handy, compact design.
