Need a good baby carrier? Wondering what sleeping bag to get a seven-year-old? Curious what gear helps us get outdoors? This is the place for you.

The gear listed here is the stuff I love, the things that make the difference between a great adventure and a horrible cry fest. In most cases it’s gear I’ve purchased myself and used for many years.
Sometimes I’ve begged the companies below for gear to review. When they finally relent, I put their gear to the test  – camping, hiking, biking, skiing with three kids in tow. I’m not shy about sharing my honest opinions – you should know that only my absolute faves are listed here.

The links listed are affiliate links, meaning if you purchase something through these links I get a small commission. We’re talking a few dollars, maybe. When I couldn’t find the exact item we use (usually because ours is an older, discontinued model) I tried to match the brand and specs as closely as possible.

Getting out with kids is always a challenge. That’s why I’m here to help.
