27 Gifts That Any Hiker And Outdoor Enthusiast Will Love

If you’re not an avid hiker yourself, it can be challenging to figure out what they actually want. Our gift guide has the best gift ideas for hikers. We’ve found some of the best and most innovative trekking gear for backpackers or adventurers in your life.

1. Portable Solar Panel

With four solar panels, it can be charged in sunlight, 4-5 times faster than the single-panel chargers. A great partner for your outside activities and day hikes. Detect automatically and intelligently the current of the dual output port to provide optimal charging output for you. Protects your device from overheating, over-current, overvoltage, short-circuiting, etc. The built-in reliable and bright LED light serves as a convenient solution if you need a light at night. That can charge their smartphone and other gadgets.

2. Nature Book

When writer and navigator Tristan Gooley journeys outside, he sees a natural world filled with clues. The roots of a tree indicate the sun’s direction; the Big Dipper tells the time; a passing butterfly hints at the weather; a sand dune reveals prevailing wind; the scent of cinnamon suggests altitude; a budding flower points south. To help you understand nature as he does, Gooley shares more than 850 tips for forecasting, tracking, and more gathered from decades spent walking the landscape around his home and the world. An excellent gift for a new hiker.

3. Life Straw

This is the ultimate water filter for those backcountry hikers. The hollow fiber membrane technology inside of the LifeStraw keeps you safe during outdoor adventures. All of our filters are rigorously tested. This little gadget will transform 4,000 Liters (1,000 Gallons) of contaminated water into clean and safe drinking water. That is more water than the average person drinks in a year! It’s ultra-lightweight, small, and easily packable. An excellent hiking gift!

My only complaint is that eventually, backflushing won’t be enough. These can clog up after some time and no amount of back flushing will fix its low flow. I went through 2 on the AT. However, it will attach to Smart Water Bottles and most bladders!

Built for backcountry reliability and portability, the Sawyer Squeeze filter is our pick for the best portable water purifier.

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).
