We’ve pooled a huge list together of everything from headlamps to hammocks, from the likes of HydroFlask, MSR Therm-a-Rest and many more. Here are our top five outdoor gifts for 2018…
A classic design with mod con upgrades, Therm-a-Rest’s Slacker Hammock is far from workshy. Sturdy, lightweight, fast-drying and comfy – it ticks all the boxes and then some. It’s easy to set up, packs a hefty load capacity, stuffs down to fit in its own attached pocket and comes with handy carabiners so you can hook it to your bag when you’re on the move. Relax in the knowledge that you’ve taken Christmas comfort to new levels.
What better gift for the on-the-go coffee lover than fresh espresso, anywhere, at any time? Lightweight and compact, the Minipresso from Wacaco produces the perfect shot of coffee in a matter of seconds, ideal for camping trips in the great outdoors and busy, on-the-go mornings alike.
When it’s chilly, lukewarm food simply doesn’t cut it. Thankfully, the clever clogs at Hyrdo Flask continue to build on their collection of containers that keep hot things hot and cold things cold. The Food Flask is the ideal way to keep hot food piping, vital when you need that extra warmth when you’re out in the cold over winter. It makes a great gift for everyone from ski tourers to early-morning commuters.
The perfect stocking filler for the outdoor lover, MSR’s renowned Pocket Rocket stove is an award winner and best-seller. This micro-sized camping stove may be compact, but it packs a serious punch when it comes to cooking – it’ll boil-up a litre of water in about three-and-a-half minutes.
Light up someone’s Christmas with Petzl Tikkina Headlamp. The no-frills headtorch has plentiful lumens to the count of 200, with a battery life to back it up. It’s lightweight, compact and easy to use – making it the ideal gift for the occasional adventurer.
HydraPak’s Propel Reservoir is built to last and designed to function. The pressure activated hand-pump delivers a steady stream of pressurised water power wherever you are in the outback. You can fill this up and freeze it or fill it with hot water for extra cleaning power. You could even fill it up with mulled wine for a classy Christmas-camp fireside drink dispenser. The Propel reservoir is compatible with HydraPak’s bladder accessories too.
Passenger’s classic enamel mug is a campsite essential. This classy cup ain’t just for containing coffee, it’ll take a tea, or even a Christmas brandy. Get a couple for the fireside, stow one in the campervan for your cup-emergencies, or take on the office and remember festive adventures past.
Revolwe are a brand built on a solid eco-friendly ethos. Their products are all built from sustainable and recyclable materials, which is a pretty good thing these days. This handy flask is constructed from stainless steel and silicone, with a sustainable bamboo cap, so you know it’s built to last. Do away with single-use plastics this Christmas.
