We had a great year for outdoor activities. Aided — no surprise here — by the abundance of outdoor gear that we actually wanted to wear and use. From the wealth of hiking kicks that lived across our outdoors and city wardrobes to the GORE-TEX coats we spent our savings on, there was so much going on in the world of performance gear this year. But that wasn’t the whole story for us. Our expeditions were also facilitated by a bunch of more practical pieces of gear, too.

Whether we’re talking about Inspector-Gadget tents, cozy blankets, or weirdly comfortable pop-up chairs, the days and nights that we spent in the wild were easier and more enjoyable than ever thanks to a handful of gear that entered our lives.

With the help of HHV, we’re rounded up 9 of the best outdoor essentials for next year’s forays into nature. Shop the edit below.
