5 Amazing Products You NEED for Fall

Yes, we carry tents, hiking boots, outerwear, kayaks and a lot of camouflage. Been there, shopped that, right?

But if you dive into our site a little further, you'll be amazed by the array of utter gems we've got in stock. (Like a floating, inflatable cooler, for example.)

Impressive, aye? And if you thought those items were neat, wait until you see what else we've found for you... just in time to add to your fall shopping list!

1. For the home: Scented soy-blend candle

Nothing says "oh, hey, fall's here" like filling your home with the warm, welcoming scents of the season. Caramel pecan, cinnamon rolls, apple cinnamon... just fire up this candle (literally) and let its smell-good magic go to work. The scent game is strong with this one.

2. For the garage: Ceiling storage hoist

Things to do BEFORE the first snow storm hits and your garage is too full of stuff to actually park your car inside: Get said stuff out of the way.

We are BIG fans of this already-top-rated storage hoist, which uses an easy, auto-locking (read: it's not going to come crashing down on you out of nowhere) pulley system to store your bikes, boards and other bulky items up to 50 lb. off the ground and out of the way. (Oh, and it's only $14.95!)

It's also really cool to just pull a cord and watch your bike go floating up into the air. Even more magical is being able to pull your car into the garage and not have to worry about dinging your car door right into your handlebars... again.

3. For fall foliage hikes with Fido: Water/food bottle with dish

Collapsible food/water bowls are fun and all, but this option is so much more convenient. Before you leave the house to ooh and ahh over the changing leaves along the trail, load up this stainless steel bottle with food or water. Then pour your contents of choice into the handy lid-turned-dish at your first pit stop on the trail. Bonus: The carabiner on top makes it super easy to clip to your belt or pack straps.

4. For celebrating grilled-cheese-and-tomato-soup weather: Soup mug

IT'S COMFORT FOOD SEASON! Ahem. (Also: Yay!) Whether you're a "soup and sandwich" or "soup and crackers" kind of person, this mug has your best interests at heart... including fewer dishes to wash, which is true love any way you look at it. Your carb of choice can tuck right in to the attached "cup" on the side, eliminating the need to use a plate. The uses for this mug are endless, really, once you get going. Chips and salsa, veggies and dip...

5. For warming up the coolest kid you know: Wearable sleeping bag

Superhero costumes are cool. But a superhero sleeping bag with arms, legs and insulation? That's the coolest. This bag o' awesome ups the warmth factor in temps above 45 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes it perfect for a Halloween costume if you're already planning that far ahead. (As kids who grew up having to trick or treat in coats that covered our costumes, we know the struggle is real.)  And, because this bag is fairly lightweight, it makes for extra-epic lounge wear around the house.

Not to leave out the adults, there's also a version for the kid at heart... but it's going fast, so get it while it's here.
