Fall is a great time to get out and see the leaves changing colors and to find trails less crowded. But also fall starts to indicate for some of us the end of some trails as the snow starts to creep from the mountain tops towards the valley floors. The products we found in this guide will definitely help you get out and stay warm and safe for the trails ahead of you.
If some of you women were feeling left out after seeing our fall running gear guide full of gear mainly focused towards men, don't be because here is your own. We have found some great new products that should make your fall training runs more enjoyable. As the weather cools and the daylight dwindles having the right gear truly makes a difference.
Running in the fall can be a great experience as temperatures cools off. But as the days get shorter, running during low light conditions increase making visibility key for safety. To help with safety, we have found running gear that has reflective components and lights to be seen. You don't have to be suck indoors this fall if you have the right gear.
I don’t know about you but my wife and I are always looking for quick getaways that’s close to home. Being able to get out of the city and up in the mountains is always a plus for us. And most of the time to make this happen it means camping, which isn’t always a bad thing. But sometimes we are looking for more than camping but less than hotel room service. I found that the Antelope Yurt at the Blue Sky Ranch was a perfect option.
For me, having a reliable way to boil water while out in the backcountry is important. This usually means having something to boil the water in, like a pot, pan or mug and something to boil the water on, like a fire or stove. I prefer using a stove over fire when boiling water as it is quick and easy. There are many stoves on the market but few, if any, as small and light as the Olicamp ION Micro stove.
Some think that the outdoors and technology shouldn't mix. But I have always believed that technology can make your outdoor experience better.

I am sure you will find something that you want.
