Camping Baselayers

Here is my go-to sleeping formula while camping! I sleep cold all year round, so this outfit keeps me nice and toasty for three-season camping!


The two baselayer pants that I wear to sleep in are the REI Co-op Midweight Base Layer Tights and the REI Co-op Teton Fleece Pants 2.0. The leggings are used for warmer nights and on any backpacking trip, whereas I use the fleece pants for colder nights and typically when I car camp. The REI Co-op Midweight Base Layer Tights are great for layering in the winter as well!

Warmer Nights:

Cost: $49.95

Chillier Nights:

Cost: $59.95


The two baselayer tops that I wear to sleep in are the REI Co-op Midweight Base Layer Crew Top - Women's and the Smartwool Merino 250 Base Layer Crew Top. I like both equally because they are stink proof, stylish, and keep me warm!


Cost: $49.95


Cost: $100

The two fleece jackets that I wear to sleep are the Women's Re-Tool Snap-T® Fleece Pullover and the Women’s TKA Glacier ¼ Zip (which is no longer sold). I love wearing my Patagonia Pullover if I don't have to worry about the weight that I am carrying, so like this for car camping. Another option is the REI Co-Op Trailsmith Fleece Jacket.

Affordable and Lightweight:

Cost: $89.95

Investment and Bulkier:

Cost: $129.00


I wear a few socks to sleep, but the only ones that always keep my feet warm enough are the Smartwool Classic Hike, which are no longer sold. I am not sure what it is about these socks, but they are perfect for keeping your toes warm! The style I have linked is very similar in thickness!

Tried and True:

Cost: $24.00


We always want to wear a hat if we are sleeping in a cold environment because heat escapes from our extremities, so a hat can be a must! I prefer to use a wool cap. I just got this one from Madewell and it works great!

Stylish and Practical:

That's a wrap for my trusty sleep outfit!!
