"The easiest way to light up an outdoor lover’s face is to invite them on a trip, or get them a sweet piece of gear. We’re hoping you have the trip planned, but with the holidays around the corner a gift is probably a good idea, too. We know there’s essentially too much gear to choose from, so we created a guide with some of our favorite backpacking products in the outdoor world.

We’ve split the products into Budget Gifts, Mid-Range Gifts, High-End Gifts, and Big Ticket Gifts, because we know you have a budget in mind for that lucky backpacker."

MEDIA MENTIONS

Gear is a necessity for a thru-hike (historically, my ancestors traveled the trails with less, but nowadays equipment is vital).
