If you love the outdoorsmen in your life, you might be hoping to upgrade their gear collection before they head out on their next adventure. Whether you’re treating yourself or trying to find the best gifts for your dad, brother, husband, loved one, or even yourself, these are the top outdoorsy gifts that will make you their favorite.


Use goTenna to keep in touch with the rest of your group when you’re in a rural area with no service. It creates its own off-grid network with other goTenna users in the area. You simply use your iOS or Android phone to send texts & share GPS locations when there’s no cell coverage or wifi available.


These double-wall insulated tumblers have an an 18/8 stainless steel body, and a cult following. A YETI keeps your drink at the right temperature no matter how much you test its durability. Ramblers are BPA-free, dishwasher safe, and have a “No Sweat Design” so your hands don’t get wet from condensation.

Choose one in their favorite color for extra points.


An air mattress is the single best decision you’ll make when planning to sleep outdoors. Don’t let anyone tell you differently, it’s a really good investment. Unless you’re fully committing to “roughing it,” and will already be carrying tons of weight up treacherous paths, it’s completely worth the buy, and over 14,000 reviews on Amazon will tell you this is the one you want.


This is really everything you’re going to want when you buy a portable hammock. It has a sturdy and breathable surface made of nylon and holds up to 660lb, easily accommodating 2 adults.


Keep your precious backpack space free by wearing a Paracord Bracelet on your wrist. It features a fire starter, reliable compass, loud emergency whistle, emergency knife and 12 feet of military-grade paracord. Unlike other options, this particular the Cobra bracelet is adjustable to fit small and big wrists.


I know, I realize the whole point of hitting the great outdoors is to unplug and getaway from your electronic devices for a minute. But in the event of an emergency, you don’t want to be without one. The solar charger keeps you ready in the event that you need to use your electronic device to call for help, find your way back to camp, or even to google whether that’s what poison ivy actually looks like.


This tool is an all in eone Heavy Duty Shovel, Sharp Axe Blade, Serrated Saw Edge, Hammer, and Paracord. You’re probably thinking, “This, this is why I don’t go camping.” You wouldn’t be wrong to let the thought of digging a hole to do your business in keep you from spending time in the great outdoors. But one thing is for sure, better to have it and not need it, than to need it and have to dig a hole with your hands. Just, take our word for it.

If the outdoorsmen in your life already has all of the essential gear, maybe they just need a little something extra for the fun of it. Not to mention, getting your caffeine fix is pretty important when your trusty keurig or starbucks stop isn’t at the ready.


When you’re camping, often times you’re traveling light, and a pillow just won’t fit in your bag. This inflatable pillow is a great solution, and the next time your friend goes camping, they’ll have you to think for their cozy night’s sleep.


Imagine you’ve soaked up enough nature, and boredom starts to take hold while you’re on your family’s camping trip. Having a set of outdoor games handy is a must for getting through those moments where you feel like there is nothing to do. Spikeball has a huge fan base on Amazon, and it’s likely the best game your family isn’t playing right now.


When you elect to travel in the great outdoors, you have to get creative when it comes to staying clean and hygenic. Your clothes can get covered in alot of dirt and grime when you’re outside “roughin’ it,” and when you’re trying to keep your luggage light, you want to be able to wash your clothes rather than pack extra outfits. This little device hacks that problem by giving you a wash bag so you can do your laundry easily and thoroughly. Just hang them on the line to dry and you’re set for more adventures.


This particular spray is the holy grail as far as protecting clothing, gear, and tents. Put this spray on your tent, your sleeping bag, your jackets, your backpack, all your gear! There are so many more bugs than just mosquitoes…..and so much more to protect against than just an itchy bite.


It may seem obvious, but staples are that for a reason. Essential, necessary, and unavoidable products like a First Aid Kit are crucial when traveling outdoors.
