Grovemade Walnut Pocket Knife
Grovemade’s Walnut pocket knife, designed and built in Portland, Oregon, is as durable as it is elegant, with a stainless blade and polished handle.
Fox River New American Rag Crew Socks
Fox River’s New American Rag crew socks have a blend of nylon and spandex for extra stretch but won’t slouch during long days on your feet.
Grace USA Wood Handled Micro Screwdriver Set
Be it flathead or Phillips, the six-piece Grace USA Wood Handled Micro screwdriver set keeps things tight and looks good doing it.
Duke Cannon Big Ass Brick of Soap
Though it’s sourced from a former military manufacturer, Duke Cannon’s Big Ass Brick of Soap doesn’t assault the nostrils. The Smells Like Accomplishment bar is equal parts citrusy and peppery.
Nomad Leather Wallet
The Nomad Leather wallet is flashy on the inside. It comes with a lithium-ion battery and a USB cord to charge your phone in two hours.
Commit 30 Adventure Journal
In an era of social-media brevity, a traveler’s notebook feels more important than ever. The Commit 30 Adventure journal has a world map and inspirational quotes for when your enthusiasm flags.
Smith Marvine Sunglasses
Smith makes plenty of functional, performance-oriented shades, but its Marvine sunglasses are pure style. Modeled after one of the company’s original lines from 1965, these are great casual beach, brunch, and driving eyewear.
Yeti Hopper Flip Cooler
Smaller than the original soft-bodied Hopper but lighter than other coolers of the same size, the Yeti Hopper Flip has room to store your essentials (up to 12 beers with enough room for ice) for a daylong escape.
Redington Rise Reel
Redington’s lightweight Rise reel has a carbon-fiber drag system that stops fish faster. It keeps the line in a sweet spot—taut so your catch can’t escape, but loose enough so your tippet doesn’t snap.
Keen Slater Waterproof Boots
The leather upper on Keen’s Slater Waterproof boots looks better with wear and keeps moisture out. The pull-on style and grippy soles are functional perks, while the fleece lining locks in heat.
Marmot Minimalist Jacket
Marmot’s Minimalist jacket is the pared-down rain shield that hides away in your bag until you need it, and it works brilliantly over a technical layer or office-ready dress shirt.
Gear Aid Arc Charger
Gear Aid’s smartly designed Arc can juice your phone five times. Or deploy the kickstand and use the array of 60 LEDs to light your campsite or teardrop trailer.
Cordoba Mini O Guitar
It’s only about half the size of a standard strummer, but the Cordoba Mini O guitar has a big tone, thanks to nylon strings and a hardy, rich-sounding ovangkol-wood body. We’ve packed it miles into the backcountry for campfire jam sessions.
Rails Hunter Shirt
If we had to choose a favorite button-down, it would be Rails’ Hunter shirt. The ultrasoft cotton is tailored for a goes-with-anything fit.
