Here's a gift guide for outdoorsy people. I've picked up each of these items over the past year and they all have been a great addition to my outdoor lifestyle. Some of the items are practical for every day use. Others add ease or comfort. Still others are just plain fun. After over a year of testing and use, I feel comfortable recommending each of these products based on my personal experience.
Sawyer Picaridin Insect Repellent about $9 If you spend time outdoors and want to keep the creepy crawlies away, you might consider using this picaridin insect repellent instead of your typicall deet product. This lotion is applied similar to other lotion insect repellent and is effective. The main difference is that this insect repellent is less toxic and will not deteriorate plastic, nylon or other materials like deet has the tendency to do. So keep the bugs away, but keep yourself and your gear in good shape.
Olight i5R EOS EDC Flashlight about $36 This flashlight is well built, rechargeable, powerful and just the right size to carry in your hand or slip into a pocket. The clip allows the user to clip it to a pocket or to a baseball cap for use as a headlamp. Everyone needs a quality flashlight that they can rely on.
