Here’s a list of rock-solid gear any outdoorsy man will love.

BioLite Wood-Burning Camp Stove

 Cooking food is one of the biggest hassles to plan for while camping or backpacking. Most small camp stoves require propane or butane, which mean lugging another canister with you.

The Hugger 20L from Db

Get Him Equipped

The gear you lug with you can either make your adventure a breeze, or detract from your time to unplug and explore.

If the adventure man in your life only has bulky water bottles, start with one of Camelbak’s lightweight, time-tested hydration packs or reservoirs to be sure he has enough water on his trek. I recommend the M.U.L.E.® 12 Hydration Pack or the Fusion™ 3L Reservoir.

Then, consider smaller items like a compact first-aid kit, a hybrid facial moisturizer and sunscreen, and an insulated stainless steel mug.

Help him get out there and tackle the big, wide, wonderful world.
