Stuck on what to get for that fearless, tireless, exploring-the-road-less-traveled friend for the holidays?
We found a handful of things that they might not have in their “ultimate adventurer” arsenal.
If they only have one book in their adventure library… …it should probably be this one. Available in hardcover and for digital devices, Bradford Angier’s How to Eat in the Woods: A Complete Guide to Foraging, Trapping, Fishing, and Finding Sustenance in the Wild will help your ultimate adventurer stay fed should a worst-case scenario ever play out. (Or if they run out of protein bars on their next wild adventure.) Get the book here
From mosquito to NOsquito Wandering through the wilderness comes with a long list of things to worry about. But thanks to this repeller from Thermacell, mosquitos no longer need to be one of them. This EPA reviewed, 4-oz. device is powered by a canister of camping fuel and creates a 15-foot zone of protection from those bitey little buggers, giving you the bite-free good night’s sleep you deserve.

A new emergency blanket Emergency blankets should be an essential piece of any adventurer’s kit. And while we’re all familiar with the classic silver blankets that look like aluminum foil, there are a number of emergency blankets out there that go beyond helping you avoid hypothermia. Check out this roundup Rolling Stone did and shop accordingly! Read the roundup
This thing! Depending on how much of a purist your ultimate adventurer is, this item might fall into more of a “glamping” category. We, however, are pretty impressed with it. VSSL’s Compact Adventure Kit consolidates more than 70 pieces of essential adventure gear into an indestructible 9” x 2” military-grade aluminum tube…that is also a light AND a compass. Get one for yourself, too
