Gift Guide for the Adventurer
Go to Top

Finding the perfect gift for the adventurer on your list can be tricky. He needs goods that are going to go the distance, taking him from the city to the country to anywhere in between with ease. Given that he’s always on the go, he also needs things that are lightweight and easy to take along for the ride. Here, we share some of the items that will keep any outdoorsman safe, organized, and (most importantly) caffeinated.

OneLogFire Fire Log

Even an expert fire starter sometimes wants to avoid the planning, hassle, and mess that always go hand in hand with cooking hot dogs and roasting marshmallows over an open flame. The OneLogFire Fire Log offers a great alternative to traditional campfire building and makes for a unique gift for the outdoorsman on your list.

Composed of hardwood pine harvested from Minnesota forests, each OneLogFire is meticulously kiln dried to burn easily from the inside out. Unlike other portable quick-start fire logs, this product is composed of 100% natural wood that adds zero flavoring or contaminants to food or hot drinks. It employs a central-bored hole that promises up to 2 hours of uninterrupted burn time.

SOLKOA Survival Kit for Best Made

This is the perfect gift for the serious adventurer on your list. Virtually indestructible, the “SUMA” box is machined from a single block of aircraft grade 6061 aluminum. Inside you'll find 25 of the most highly considered and useful life saving tools you could ask for, including an emergency fishing kit, steel wire, water purification tablets, and an emergency signaling mirror.

The founder and staff of SOLKOA Survival Systems have a combined 100+ years of experience providing survival training and products to the most elite military and government forces of the United States, Canada and United Kingdom, so you could say they know what they're doing.


Designed for the Swedish Military and adopted by mountaineers and adventurers, Hudsalve is hearty, no-frills necessity that can be used for, well, almost anything. Not only can it be used on dry lips, hands, feet, and elbows, but it can also be used to condition leather boots, heal small cuts, soothe dog paws, ward off mosquitoes, and even grease weapons. Talk about multitasking.

BRNLY SlingPop

The BRNLY SlingPop is a sleek, modern take on the classic childhood item of our youth — the slingshot — packed with all of the practicality of a “bar key” bottle opener that you can take with you wherever you go. CNC-machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and available in orange, purple or red, this is truly the type of accessory that lets you have your cake (or booze) and eat it, too. Every purchase includes a BRNLY SlingPop with your chosen band, a spare band and 50 5mm ball bearings.

Bripe Coffee Brew Pipe

Bripe is a coffee brew pipe that was created by two friends with a sense of adventure. This innovative apparatus was designed as an extremely portable, lightweight way to brew coffee in the great outdoors. After a chance meeting of Bripe’s founders on a camping trip in the Canadian wilderness, the two men bonded over a need for an accessible coffee maker that could be carted along on any trek.

The Bripe Coffee Brew Pipe was the answer to that need, offering a solution that wasn’t too complex, nor too bulky or heavy that it couldn’t be packed away in a backpack or slung into a kayak. The Bripe is a small, lightweight, copper and silver pipe that brews up delicious coffee wherever you are. It produces the energy giving beverage without the use of electricity, a gas canister, kettle, or stove. Simply add ground coffee and water to the Bripe and then use its included portable butane-powered quad jet torch to warm your blend of choice.


The TripTarp is a great gift for the forgetful adventurer in your group. With a list of all the gear you need for a backpacking trip, as well as special zones for you to organize everything as you get it together, this simple but innovative product will streamline the entire packing experience.

Plus, 70D nylon material and a DWR coating make it durable and weatherproof, making it a great emergency rain shelter, sun shelter or even welcome mat in front of your tent.


Since its release in 2005 (when Time magazine named it "Best Invention of the Year"), LifeStraw has been used worldwide in harsh conditions to remove bacteria and protozoa and reduce organic chemical matter and chlorine, enabling you to immediately drink from any water source, at any time.

This version, with a durable stainless steel body, includes lanyard and caps for both the mouth and end pieces, is BPA and chemical free, and is easy to clean and maintain.

Ka-bar Stainless Steel Original Hobo All-Purpose Knife

Forget packing a whole slew of silverware when you head out into the wilderness — all you really need is this Ka-Bar Hobo Knife. A fork, knife, and spoon all fold seamlessly into a single stainless steel package, sliding apart whenever you're ready to chow down. When you're finished, pack up with a few quick gestures, throw the 3.75" gadget in your pocket or bag, and get on with your life. It even comes with a nylon carrying case to keep it safe when it's not in use.

DSPTCH Travel Pack

What does the ideal travel pack look like? The answer to this question may well look like the DSPTCH Travel Pack. With over 30L of storage space, this pack offers a separate padded laptop compartment and quick access pockets that make accessing gear nearly effortless. Also of note is the pack’s separate area for shoes or worn clothing, helping you plan a hike or regular trips to the gym.

DSPTCH also understands that travel packs ought to be built to last and capable of carrying the heavy load. The bag provides a hip belt for heavy loads that can also function as a compression strap. And weighing in at just over four pounds, it's easy to take with you wherever your next adventure takes you.
