Gear Up for Your Winter Camping Trips
The fall season has officially begun, ending summer as we move into the colder months. But just because summer is over doesn’t mean that your camping adventures have to be. Winter camping offers outdoor enthusiasts an opportunity to experience the beautiful mountains of Southern Appalachia without the constant annoyance of bugs like mosquitos and gnats that often plague campers during the spring and summer.
Our team at Captain Dann’s of Smoky Mountain Trader is fully stocked to provide our customers with the best winter camping gear. From cold weather sleeping bags to hiking boots and clothing designed to keep you warm, Captain Dann’s provides the highest-quality outdoor camping gear for all seasons, especially for fall and winter weather.
Winter Camping Offers Exciting Differences from Summer Camping
During the fall and winter seasons, pesky bugs start to die off, making camping a much more enjoyable experience. Imagine sitting outside your tent next to a beautiful, flowing river just teeming with trout; with fishing season opening up, it’s the perfect time to get out into the hills and roast your freshly caught fish over an open fire under the stars. Our specialized gear allows you to enjoy colder weather camping.
A few key things to remember during cooler weather camping include packing lightweight but warm and wearing durable clothing, such as the clothing options we offer. Kühl pants, such as the Kuhl 5016 Rydr Pant for Men or the Kuhl 6119 Kontra Pant for Women, are made specifically for the mountains. Kuhl clothing is lightweight, wind-resistant, and perfect for crisp camping conditions.
While Kuhl pants are great for your legs, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve got your chest and arms covered and cozy too. Minus33 offers a wide variety cold weather outdoor clothing, including Merino Lambswool socks and 100% wool tops that are perfect for wearing underneath a comfortable flannel shirt.
Find the Perfect Outdoor Gear w/ Captain Dann’s
While warm clothing is important for cold weather camping, you’ll also want to make sure you’re warm while sleeping so that you can get the best night’s rest possible. If you’re hammock camping, one of our sleeping mats or sacks are sure to keep your underside warm, while we’ve found that our Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter Pro Hammock with bug netting works to retain additional heat for an enjoyable evening.
