Clockwise from top left: If your friend doesn't have a Leatherman tool, get them one. The Leatherman Juice XE6 ($63) packs 18 different tools into 3 inches, and you can even engrave it with a special message! OK, so a headlamp might seem dorky to you, but for wilderness lovers it's a must have, and the PrincetonTec EOS ($40) is one of the best in its class. A good backpack is essential when you're hitting the trail; we love the JanSport Talus backpack ($110) because of its fun color schemes and durability. And since your gal can't go barefoot out there, get her a pair of top rated Keen Voyageur hiking shoes ($100). A good tent and sleeping bag can make you feel like you're in a four star hotel; the North Face Cat's Meow sleeping bag ($159) and Nemo Losi two person tent ($340) do just that.
If you have a camper, hiker, or climber in your life, we've got the perfect gift for you to give. Whether it's hitting the trail, sleeping under the stars, or being the MacGyver of the wilderness, any of these award-winning items are bound to brighten the day of your outdoorsy friend.
