COSMIC DOWN SLEEPING BAG: AWARD-WINNING SLEEP
Our Cosmic Sleeping Bag was already giving you a workhorse for the price of a pony. Now, thanks to a slew of upgrades, you can get your hands on a legit unicorn—with “pony pricing” still in play. Our most popular bag, the Cosmic is still a three-season sleeping bag with cozy, quick-drying 600 fill DriDown™. But thanks to refinements like our NEW soft-as-silk nylon taffeta fabric and a handy stash pocket for your headlamp/chapstick/actual stash, you’ll ACTUALLY be sleeping under the stars. Learn more.

BESTIE BLANKET: EXTRA WARMTH ON THE BEST(IE) ADVENTURES
We all have that one friend. Your forever wingman, who lives for last-minute road trips and day-of concert tickets (#tbt). Who always gets an extra order of nachos “for the table.” Who just plain gets YOU. Who makes every adventure better. Did we name a blanket after your Bestie? We promise it’s a compliment. Finished with super-soft fabrics on both sides, this Bestie is great over rough rocks or pokey grass, around the campfire or the park, as an extra layer over or under your sleeping bag…or a gift for your Bestie. Learn more.
LOW LOVESEAT: THE CAMPGROUND COUCH
Get low. This camping chair turned campground couch is the king (and queen) of comfort.

A relaxed, slightly reclined design means you’re about to get your fill of chill. Extra points for a durable steel frame, insulated bevvie holders and a roll-tote carry bag. Learn more.
BIG SHADY: THE MOTHER SHIP
Every group of friends has one person whose house is the place to be—it’s the center of it all, the home base away from home. Big Shady is the camping version of that. With a welcoming, door-like entryway and a large footprint that accommodates your entire squad underneath, it’s more than your basic pop-up shelter—it’s the heart of your campsite. Learn more.
