Have someone adventurous on your Secret Santa list this year? We’ve got you covered with a bunch of adventure-ready gifts that any of us would be psyched to find in our stocking.
Petzl Tikkina Headlamp ($20)
The Tikkina’s 150 lumens can’t compete with some of the super-bright headlamps out there, but it’s plenty bright for your standard backpacking/car camping situation. It’s also waterproof and has a single button that makes switching from high to low a snap.
Klean Kanteen Straw Set ($10)
Plastic straws are public enemy number one. Make the switch to these stainless-steel options that are capped with food-grade silicone tips. There’s even a brush included for cleaning them. Save the world, one beverage at a time.
Hang anything, anywhere: That’s the beauty of the HeroClip. Dangle your pack from a tree, a lantern from a tent, a radio from your hammock—the possibilities are endless with this carabiner/clip combo that holds up to 50 pounds.
Topeak Mini 9 Multitool ($17)
You can fix almost anything that goes wrong with your bike using this tiny tool that includes seven different Allen wrenches, a Torx bit for disc brakes, and a Phillips screwdriver.
Nite Ize HandleBand ($18)
Whatever kind of smartphone you have, you can strap it to your handlebars with this easy-to-use rubber strap. Follow a map, talk to Siri, take a conference call, all while riding your bike. There’s even a built-in bottle opener.
GSI Outdoors Boulder Flask ($15)
The Boulder flask is handy for a few reasons. Yes, it holds your booze. But it’s also made of shatter-resistant plastic with silicone grips, so it can withstand a beating. The see-through body shows you exactly how much booze you have left at all times. It holds ten ounces and weighs just 4.3 ounces on its own.
Buff Original ($20)
It’s hard to think of a single layer more versatile than the Buff. It works as a sweat guard or an impromptu beanie. It covers your face from the sun (UPF 50 protection) or the wind. It’s a handkerchief, tourniquet, or scarf and weighs just a few ounces.
Chums Surfshorts Wallet ($10)
You don’t have to be a surfer to appreciate the design of this sleek wallet. It’s made from ripstop nylon and has two zipper pockets for cards and cash, an exterior ID window, and a disappearing key ring that can hold your car keys, a small knife, or bottle opener.
Arcade YOSAR Adventure Belt ($26)
We’ve been wearing an Arcade Adventure Belt for more than a year now, and we’re still completely smitten with the stretchy elastic belt and simple polymer buckle. This particular belt was built to honor the men and women of the Yosemite Search and Rescue team who save an average of 236 lives every year in the park. Ten percent of the proceeds help fund rescue efforts in Yosemite.
Peanut Lighter ($13)
Give the gift of fire with this tiny keychain lighter designed for everyday carry. The case is made from lightweight and durable titanium, and the brass lighter is easy to remove for refilling. It’s waterproof and can double as a pill vial when necessary.
