Late-season gear & apparel. 

The days are only getting shorter, and the snow's gotta come soon, so get out there while the gettin's good – and be sure you have the right gear to enjoy yourself in the process. Here are a few items to enhance the remainder of the season.

Arcade Adventure Belt
Belts have been around for eons—ever since Adam needed something to hold up his fig leaf in front of Eve. The function of a belt has been the same all along, but the applications have definitely changed. Adventure Belts from Arcade are the next step in this evolution. Built for the outdoors, they're made with comfortable stretch materials and a simple, low-profile buckle that moves with you as you hike, bike, scramble, and ski your way through the woods. I’ve worn mine hunting, fishing, and hiking, and so far it has delivered on the promise to stretch with movement and not slip. Plus it's available in a multitude of colors and designs that will look great on any outing. $26; arcadebelts.com. —Chris McCarthy

Rumpl Jer Collins Blanket

Heavy fleece blankets and the backcountry don't necessarily go hand-in-hand, but not every item you purchase needs to be of the rugged variety. Sometimes, comfort is king, and if you're car camping, hanging at a country cabin, or just cozying up by the fire, get a Super Fleece blanket from Rumpl. I have the Jer Collins special edition and it's kept me toasty from the campsite to the living room. It comes in three sizes (king, queen, twin), so you can use it at home, but the thing is so warm I end up shedding it half-way through my slumber. It's ideal for fireside reading, layering on a fall overnight, or keeping in the car for impromtu picnics. $150; gorumpl.com. —David Tucker

Pocket Shot & Arrow Kit
A slingshot's a slingshot, right? Wrong—in an innovative departure from the status quo, Pocket Shot has redesigned the classic bean-shooter into a truly modern variant. Simply drop in a steel ball, pinch it in the elastic pouch, point the open-ring grip toward your target, and let 'er rip. With a little practice you'll be hammering pop cans in no time. But it doesn't stop there—the Pocket Shot has an arrow kit, so you can screw on a whisker-biscuit aiming device, insert an arrow instead of slingshot ammo, and launch a fletched shaft at a surprisingly high velocity. Round or linear projectile, pick your pleaseure; but either way, this ain't your grandpa's slingshot. $25 + $65 for the arrow kit; thepocketshot.com. —Mike England

Night falls fast this time of year, and the roads can be slick, so make your cycling self even more visible with these cool turn signals. Just pop the caps off the ends of your handlebars, insert the WingLights, and with the touch of a button, you've got a bright orange signal indicating your intentions to all surrounding motorists. To prevent theft, or for a handy personal night light, remove the WingLights from your bike, stick them together with the attached magnets, and put 'em on your keychain. $50; cycl.bike. —Mike England

Help those cuts and scrapes heal with this CBD-infused cream, produced by a local Bozeman woman who has harnessed the power of cannabinoids for several theraputic products. Daisies not included. $12; lostremedy.com. —Mike England
