A Valentine's Day Gift Guide For Guys With Outdoorsy Girlfriends

Okay guys: It's time to stop procrastinating, and start shopping. Stuck on what to get the outdoorsy lady in your life? Here's what we recommend:

Supernova 

Kelty Supernova 30 Three-In-One Sleeping Bag: Zipping in together makes camping more fun. The Supenova 30° is made for spring and summer outtings. The deep hood keeps warmth in; pillow pockets and external storage pockets keep all the comforts of home at hand. And, when you're not enjoying together time, the top and bottom zip into a sleeping bag and a blanket. $300, kelty.com


Icebreaker


Icebreaker Siren Cami and Bikini: Lacy underwear has its moments, but sexy wool is wearable in the frontcountry or backcountry all year long. Icebreaker's Siren cami and bikini are breathable, wispy merino that add warmth in winter, but won't overheat her the rest of the year. Thanks to a touch of lycra, it's sexy and functional, and it's not itchy.  $50/$28, us.icebreaker.com

Hazel



Keen Hazel Wrist Wallet: Cellphone, lip balm, keys, credit card. These are the things girls like to have on hand. With Keen's Hazel Wrist Wallet, she'll have them on hand and keep them on hand. The wrist strap keeps everything close. If your Valentine tends to lose her wallet, this gift will save the day. $35,keenfootwear.com.

Soloist


Horny Toad Soloist Shawl: Buttery soft, in winter the Soloist makes a great scarf. But it's not so wooly that it works only in winter. She'll wear this wide-cut, organic cotton-angora-nylon wrap anytime there's even a slight chill. $52, hornytoad.com


Hincapie
Hincapie Paris Wool Hoodie: A fitted hoodie with a front cowl neck and a glam oversized two tone hood, Hincapie's Paris Hoodie isn't a sweatshirt, but she'll wear it like one. It's warm (made from New Zealand merino) and comfortable, and the long cut will show off her shapely figure. $170, hincapie.com.

Good karma
Vermont Peanut Butter Good Karma: Skip the Godiva and get her Vermont Peanut Butter's Good Karma dark chocolate peanut butter blend instead. It's protein and anti-oxidant rich, low sugar, and a great snack for any outdoor activity. If she prefers almonds, order Champlain Cherry, which has dark chocolate and dried cherries in a rich almond butter. $8, vtpeanutbutter.com
