Love camping and hiking, and want to upgrade your gear? Here are a few of my favorite camping gear ideas for women!
Ladies! If you’ve spent much time looking for hiking and camping gear, you’ve probably noticed something.
A lot of the standard camping gear out there is not made with women in mind.
Some of the standard gear is too large for those of us who are a little vertically challenged.
Other gear (like hiking boots) most definitely exists, but for some reason the women’s sizes aren’t stocked as well as the men’s sizes in a lot of outdoor gear stores.
And that, my friends, means we have to shop online.
Here’s a list of my top camping gear recommendations for women. Everything’s available online, so you don’t have to hunt it down in person.

Camping Gear for Women: My Favorite Camping Clothing
The following are the clothes that I grab when we head out for a camping or backpacking trip.
These clothes make my hiking trips more enjoyable and comfortable, and I highly recommend them!
I own everything listed except one item (the wool leggings), and I included the leggings because I wish I'd bought a pair before heading out on a cold-weather backpacking trip last fall. I plan to buy them before our next trip!
The Best Women's Camping Shoes + Boots
These are the shoes I bring along on each camping trip!
I love the jellies as shower shoes or a cute ballet flat when we go into town (in summer), the hiking sandals make a perfect campground shoe, and the hiking boots are my current favorites.
More Camping Gear for Women
Here are a few more things that I always throw in the car before heading out on a camping trip.
The day pack is one I've been eyeing on Amazon (but haven't purchased yet!), and the backpacking pack is my go-to bag that has traveled with me across the country.
