My wife and I have been researching camping gear online lately, trying to get ready for our Fall camping excursions to come. She needs a new sleeping bag and pad for under the sleeping bag. There are so many different options out there!
While searching online I found some really nice sleeping bags and some other quality gear as well that I wanted to share with ya’ll. So I’ve written a review of camping gear for women. My hope is that maybe it will help point you in the right direction.
Here we go….
Sleeping Bags and Accessories
Sleep is important when camping. Especially if you’re going to be doing some hiking as well. It’s important to get a good night sleep and recharge the batteries for another day of adventure.
Kelty Tru Comfort 20
My wife decided to go with the Kelty Tru. Comfort 20 Sleeping Bag. This is a very comfortable sleeping bag. It has an inner blanket to keep you warm at night. But you can take it out and just use the blanket for sitting around the camp fire. And it includes a sleeping pad too!
The only negative thing I hear is how bulky it is. And at 5 lbs. 4 oz. it may be a little heavy for backpacking or hiking. But for camping, it’s excellent!
Kelty Tru Comfort Sleeping Bag – Kids
Much like the adult size version this sleeping bag is perfect for camping but probably would be a little bulky for hiking and backpacking.
Mountain Summit Gear Self-Inflating Camp Pillow
Much like the previous sleeping bag in this review, this pillow may be a little bulky for backpacking but works wonders for camping. It self-inflates into a comfortable pillow that really does offer a lot of support for you’re head.
Women’s Jackets and Pullovers
I came across several nice North Face jackets with different features for protection from cold and rainy conditions. The North Face makes some really nice outdoor wear in my opinion. You have to check out these jackets and pullovers!
The North Face Venture 2 Rain Jacket
It comes in five different colors: Medium Grey, Dark Grey, Deep Blue, Galaxy Purple, and Mint Blue. This jacket is windproof and waterproof with a breathable fabric. It’s perfect for year round use. It’s lightweight design makes it that much more comfortable and easy to pack down into a back pack. This jacket looks like a winner to me.
The North Face Tech Glacier Quarter-Zip Fleece Pullover
This fleece comes in five different colors: High Rise Grey, Black, Medium Grey, Tin Grey, and Dark Grey. First and foremost, this is more of a shirt than a pullover. It is slim fit so whatever size you wear, order the next size up and it will fit just fine. But other than that it is a real nice fleece pullover that zips at the neck for easy temperature regulation. And the fabric used is fast-drying.
Lots of people love 1/4 zip and how lightweight it is. I would recommend it for sure.
The North Face Resolve Plus Rain Jacket
This rain jacket comes in seven different colors: Fire Brick Red Dobby, High Rise Grey / Stinger Yellow, Mid Grey Dobby / Deep Blue, Rumba Red / Fig, Sodalite Blue, Asphalt Grey / Four Leaf Clover, and Tin Grey. This is a nice, lightweight jacket that is water and rain proof. And with all the different stylish colors to choose from, you could get more than one to match different outfits.
The only negative reviews I read was that the material was real hard and stiff which made the jacket uncomfortable. And another review said they had problems with the pockets filling up with water. Could have just been a defective one. I don’t know.
The North Face Nuptse 2 Down Vest
This vest comes in two colors: Cerise Pink and High Risk Red / Tnf Black. This is a nice, comfy vest with plenty of insulation for those cold days and nights. It can be worn over a sweatshirt and even under some rain gear in case the weather get’s nasty.
I didn’t see any negative reviews on this vest so I would definitely recommend it.
The North Face Fave Half Dome Pullover 2.0
This pullover comes in a bunch of different colors: Desert Flower Orange / Tnf White, Juicy Red Pullover with Urban Navy sleeves, Medium Grey / White, Tnf Black, Asphalt Grey, Wild Aster Purple Pullover with Violet Peony sleeves, Grey / Atomic Pink, and Dark Grey with Kokomo Green Tnf Logo.
Really cool pullover with thumb holes in the cuffs. It is designed really well with vibrant colors that compliment each other. And the materials they used are at least 50% recycled which is really cool! The fabric is smooth on the outside and soft and cozy on the inside. It got a lot of really nice reviews.
Well that concludes this review. You can find this gear and much more online at REI.com. If you have any comment or questions just leave them below and i’ll be happy to help.
See ya on the trail!
