  1. Black Diamond Lighthouse Tent ($369;
    This tough tent comfortably sleeps two, yet weighs a mere three pounds 12 ounces. It does so by combining a single-wall design with feathery Epic fabric for excellent water-repellency and windproofing. Big mesh doors circulate plenty of air in good weather.
  2. Adventure Medical Ultralight .9 First-Aid Kit ($32;
    Face it, accidents happen. So be prepared with the Ultralight .9, packed with enough supplies for a group of four in a miniscule nine-ounce package—so light even the most weight-conscious packer won't hesitate to carry it.

  3. Garmin Foretrex 201 ($182;
    Give the gift of navigation with the Foretrex 201, a rechargeable personal GPS system that straps onto a wrist while offering a high-contrast screen, storage for 500 waypoints, and accuracy down to three meters.
  4. Olympus C-7000 Zoom Camera ($600;
    With its powerful 5x optical zoom and seven-megapixel resolution, the C-7000 packs a load of photo features into a tough aluminum body. It'll delight any outdoorsy digiphile on your gift list.

  5. Jetboil Stove ($80;
    The Jetboil integrates the stove with the cookpot for light weight and lightning-quick heating. It's the perfect trail companion for the solo hiker, and is so fuel-efficient they'll never hesitate to tarry awhile and brew up a second cuppa.
  6. Mountain Hardwear Tenacity Lite Jacket ($375;
    The Tenacity Lite is ideal for the all-mountain adventurer, with a waterproof-breathable Gore-Tex XCR shell and high-design details such as a rollup laminated hood, pit zips, and a cut that's meant to move.
