Top Picks: Gifts For Your Favorite Adventurer
My belief is that a product should add value to your life, not take away from it. Does the initial purchase satisfaction last, even through new models being released? Is it durable and functional? The products I have purchased aid my love for the outdoors and have been well worth the ticket price. They bring me joy, help me stretch my boundaries and broaden my skillsets.
It is never easy figuring out presents for everyone during the holiday season, so we hope this guide helps you on your quest to find the ultimate gift for the adventurer in your life:
Outdoor Voices — OVFleece Half-Zip + Spring leggings
I am prepared to toss out my entire workout wardrobe and only have Outdoor Voices — they’re just that good. Not only for traditional exercise, but I have put them through the ringer during my hiking and climbing shenanigans and they have held up marvelously. Did I mention they look good? OV has a great lineup for both men and women — check them out now! (Psss…. the TechSweat Leggings are also sooo dreamy).
The Garmin Forerunner has been on many adventures with me. While I’m not sure how accurate it measures distance (hiking/running/cycling), it has been a great replacement to the FitBit, which would occasionally not store my steps. This watch will last a multi-day trek and sync with your phone where you can bluetooth or manually store all sorts of exercise information.
While the JetBoil takes up a little more space and weight when backpacking, it is so worth the speedy delivery. Boil water faster and better with a push button ignitor, wind-blocking shroud and simmer control. You can also get cool attachments like this coffee press or frying pan.
We definitely have a passion for wilderness camping, but I have to say… neither of us have slept better camping then with our Tepui Tent. We don’t mind sleeping on the ground, but it does get cold with little insulation between you and the earth. Being off the ground and on a foam mattress provided warmth and peace of mind. And we could cuddle :) They have several great add-ons for added insulation, storage and more.
We decided last year to start exchanging a book every Christmas. We have everything we need, but nothing beats a good book. There is something about reading that soothes the soul. These are a few of our recent favorite adventure books:
