Tactical boots vs. hiking boots: What’s the difference?
Plus, the best options for both

Every man needs a great pair of boots when he takes on the world outside his door. The question is less about whether you will face adversity in the world but more about what boots you will be wearing when you do. There are two types of boots that are the most common when exploring the outdoors or facing all the world has to throw at you: tactical boots and hiking boots.

While they may seem like they are interchangeable from each other, the two kinds of boots are very different in their construction, with design intents for very different scenarios. Tactical boots typically reach higher on the ankles than hiking boots and could be used for virtually anything you would want to use boots for, from working in a shop to an afternoon trek in the woods. Hiking boots, however, are lighter and shouldn't be used for more than long walks ranging from leisurely strolls to intense hikes.

Cold-weather camping tips: How to stay warm in your tent through fall and winter
Get geared up and ready for fall and winter camping

The serious outdoorsman knows that camping doesn't have to stop just because the nights are getting colder. A little frost on the ground or clear fall nights — where temperatures dip to 32 degrees Fahrenheit or lower — aren't going to be enough to stop you. And they don't have to be. Cold-weather camping can take some getting used to, but camping in what most people consider the "off-season" gives you access to nature at a time when most people are curled up on their sofa instead.

Camping in the cold requires planning — there's no escaping that. Your summer camping gear might not quite cut it during fall and winter, but there are often ways that you can prolong the seasonal span of your gear and not have to shell out for another expensive setup. Then there are those nights where the cold weather catches you out — the first frost of the season, that clear fall night you weren't anticipating. On those nights, when you're suddenly thrown in at the deep end of unseasonal camping, these tips can help you to stay warm in your tent.
