Winter Camping Buyers Guide

Few things match the solidarity and camaraderie of a group of friends or family members circling a roaring campfire to stay warm on a frigid winter evening. But what happens if your outdoor adventure doesn’t include a fire? Now you're forced to deal with the brutal cold sans a source of heat. 

Don't fear! Triple Crown Products has the cold-weather gear for you. From thermal jackets to touchscreen-compatible gloves, we’ll help you prepare for the chilly version of the great outdoors – one layer at a time.

Base Layer

The base layer is the frontline of your defense. It covers your skin and should apply direct warmth. Look for clothing items made of wool and polyester. These fabrics provide heat, softness to avoid irritation, and technology to wick away sweat.

  • Try on The North Face’s Sweater Fleece Jacket. Three heathered tones and blended front pocket add style to this jacket made of 100% polyester. The windproof and water-resistant exterior blends seamlessly with the brushed interior for comfort.
  •  Columbia offers the Men's Hart Mountain Half-Zip Sweatshirt made of 60% cotton and 40% polyester. Sueded fleece, along with a ribbed waistband and cuffs, contributes to a body-contouring fit.
  •  Ladies will love Columbia’s Benton Springs Full Zip Fleece. Snuggle up in 100% polyester and manage your body temperature with elastic cuffs, two convenient hand warmer pockets, and an open bottom hem with a drawcord.

Middle Layer

The middle layer of clothing should add even more warmth. Call it “the insulation layer.” A thick, puffy jacket should do the trick!

  • Available for men and women, The North Face’s High Loft Fleece works just as well in mild conditions as it does as a middle layer in colder climates. It's heavier than the fleeces above. The thick collar will be a savior as you are hiking or sitting steady and taking in nature’s beauty.
  • The North Face’s ThermoBall Trekker Jacket also is designed for men and women. It’s lightweight and warm thanks to the company’s revolutionary insulation technology. Secure-zip pockets allow you to store extra hand warmers when they’re needed in your gloves. Plus, the 100% nylon fabric makes it water-repellent.
  • It's essential to keep your legs warm, too. Badger Sport offers BT5 Performance Fleece Open Bottom Sweatpants that are 100% polyester. The comfortable sweatpants are a worthy outer layer in moderate temperatures and ideal middle layer in frigid weather.

Outer Layer

The primary purpose of the outer layer is to protect you from snow, sleet, rain, wind, and whatever else Mother Nature throws at you in a given day. Look for clothing with waterproof and windproof qualities. Protecting yourself from getting wet is especially important in the cold because your body temperature will drop significantly if water seeps through your layering.

  • StormTech’s waterproof Solar 3-in-1 System Jacket comes with interior heat reflective mesh lining, an articulated adjustable hood, and brushed tricot neck warmer. Its shell consists of 95% polyester and 5% spandex bonded with microfleece, and the interior is 100% polyester.
  • Columbia's Grand Trek Hooded Down Jacket won't bog you down or affect your movement. Camp while sporting 100% polyester Omni-Heat™ thermal reflective lining with heat-seal construction. The jacket also comes with 650-fill-power down insulation. It’s waterproof and breathable.
  • The North Face’s Ladies Tech Stretch Soft Shell Jacket ensures a sleek fit and guarantees outstanding protection from wind and water with its elastane, double weave composition. You'll have the perfect cover while camping in the winter.


Gloves, beanies, and scarves are a must when facing extreme cold weather conditions, as frostbite affects the extremities before all other parts of the body. Be sure to bring them along for the trip.

  • StormTech’s Matrix Softshell Gloves are lightweight and multilayered with a suede gripper at the palm. You can wear these gloves while texting on your mobile devices.
  • StormTech boasts Wind Barrier Fleece Gloves as well. Stay warm with mid-weight gloves made of soft, 100% polyester fleece and 40 grams of Thinsulate.
  • Keep your head toasty with Columbia’s Fast Trek Fleece Hat. Double layer ear band seals secure your ears, and a sleek silhouette keeps you stylin’ all day and night. Take your pick of black, grey, or ocean blue.
  • The North Face’s Bones Beanie is slim-fitting, and StormTech’s Microfleece Skull Cap is lightweight with 92% polyester.
  • Keep your neck cozy and comfy with StormTech’s Helix Fleece Scarf constructed of soft anti-pill polyester bonded fleece and finished with a contrasting trim. Scarves can sometimes be an afterthought, but you'll be glad to have one around your neck when camping in the cold.
