I’m making a list, and checking it twice….

Most of us have an Adventurer or two in our lives. In my case, that tends to be myself and Chris. So whether you are looking for a holiday gift for yourself (or in my case making a Pinterest board to send Chris ;)) or a loved one, here are some of my favorite products to keep living your adventure in this little thing called life.

1. Samsung WB35F Digital Camera - Capture your adventures and relive them for a lifetime! Don’t forget your Osprey Digi Stow Pocket to ensure your camera stays safe!

2. Patagonia Nano Puff – Whether jacket or vest for men or women, Patagonia’s Nano Puff technology takes top prize in adventuring warmth, comfort and durability. This little (vest) is currently residing on my Pinterest board!

3. Osprey Pack – From Hydration to Day – Multi to Travel; Osprey is your one-stop shop for high performance gear designed specifically with your adventurer in mind. I’m dying to get my hands on this Aura AG 65!

4. Maps – From the White Mountains to the Catskills, the Adirondacks to State Parks; New England is full of magical adventures! No adventure is without pitfalls though, and having a proper map will ensure you stay on the trail leading to your next adventure.

5. Eastern Mountain Sports Sleeping Bag – Down or Synthetic, warm weather to cold, EMS has you covered! Their amazing price points won’t break the bank so you can ensure your adventurer is ready for every season!

6. GSI Pinnacle Backpacker Cook Set – The all-purpose cook set! Whether car camping or backpacking this cook set will take care of your cooking needs, while also allowing you to get a little fancy J Pizza bread anyone??

7. Big Agnes Tent – When it comes to durability, weight and size; Big Agnes has you covered! Utilizing a nylon polyester mesh fabric, Big Agnes ensures you don’t sacrifice size for weight allowing your adventurer the luxury of a UL3 for a pound more than a UL2 and 11 more square feet of space.

8. Petzl Headlamp – Always nice to be able to see at night when camping!

9. Helinox Camp Chair - Bring the comfort of home to the outdoors!

10. Swiss Army Huntsman Knife With Pouch - Simple, Durable and Reliable. Never be unprepared for whatever the outdoors throws your way.

11. Stanley Classic Flask - Makes for the perfect little celebratory summit sip or a campfire indulgence.

12. Base Layer Clothing - Essential! Move freely while managing sweat, the durability of these tight fitting and highly breathable clothes make them the ideal first layer for any avid outdoors person.
