Yellowstone National Park - a land of fire and brimstone, gushing geysers, and roaming bison. It's a place that ignites the spirit of adventure, beckoning you to explore its rugged beauty and watch its epic sunsets to close out the day. But before you pack up and head to the park you need to make sure you pack the right gear, this will make or break your visit to the park.

Yellowstone's weather is a fickle beast. Sunshine can morph into snow flurries faster than you can say "Old Faithful." Don't worry, though, we've got you covered. This listicle is your guide to packing for Yellowstone during the Summer and Fall.

The Must Haves:

Ultralight Shirts:

The key is to pack versatile pieces that you can mix and match to adapt to the ever-changing climate. Enter VOORMI's ultralight long sleeves. These babies are light as a feather, comfortable as a second skin, protect you against the sun, wick away sweat like a champ, and dry in record time. Perfect for those early morning hikes when you're building up a sweat, or as a base layer when the wind picks up.

High-E Hoodie:

Now, let's talk about the pièce de résistance: the VOORMI High-e Hoodie. This midlayer is your best friend on the trail when the weather starts cooling off. This versatile piece transitions from a breathable midlayer to a weather-protective outer layer, making it a true all-condition companion. Built with innovative SURFACE HARDENED™ Thermal Wool, it keeps you comfortable and dry, while the relaxed fit allows for easy layering. Throw on the High-e Hoodie when the temperature dips, or wear it unzipped for extra ventilation.

What You Need for Your Visit:

  1. VOORMI Ultralight Long Sleeves: These feather-light wonders wick away sweat and dry in a flash – ideal for those early morning hikes or layering when the wind picks up. Protect your ‘hide’ from being fried!
  2. VOORMI High-e Hoodie: This midlayer is your BFF on the trail. It's crazy warm without the weight, and wind-resistant to boot. Perfect for chilly mornings or extra ventilation unzipped. It also the best piece for any camping you are doing in the park.
  3. Sturdy Backpack: For your water, snacks, camera, and that obligatory park map (trust us, you'll need it).
  4. All-Weather Gear: Pack a rain jacket, because sometimes Mother Nature throws a tantrum.
  5. Sun Protection: Sunglasses, hat, and high-SPF sunscreen – don't be a sunburn statistic!
  6. Water Bottle: Stay hydrated, especially during hikes. Yellowstone may be beautiful, but it's not an oasis. Bring more water than you think, especially when it is hot!
  7. Bear Spray: Safety first! Carry bear spray and know how to use it properly. Park rangers are cool, but grizzly bears are not.
  8. Follow Yellowstone NPS on Instagram: Trust us, it is worth it! @yellowstonenps.
  9. Leave the wildlife alone. This should be obvious, but sometimes people lose their minds in National Parks.
  10. Dogs: While animals are welcomed in the park, they must be leashed and can’t be on some trails. Also, something you might not think about it, be careful walking your furry friends on the asphalt. Scorching temps can burn your dog’s feet, stick to grass and gravel to help them out.
