Whether your loved ones enjoy strolling through urban parks or summiting epic mountains these gifts will help they stay safe and comfortable while adventuring.

10 great gifts for hikers

Deuter daypacks ($70+) – We recently upgraded to some larger daypacks for hiking and we are SO happy with them! We have the Deuter AC Lite 22SL and the Deuter Speed Lite 23SL. They’re both lightweight, and hold everything we need to be safe and comfortable on the trail. They’re also thoughtfully designed, with tons of spots to stash key gear items!

Hydrapak Force 2 L water bladder ($42) – These water bladders are durable and have a high flow rate, which is ideal for staying hydrated while on the trail. They’re also super lightweight!

Katadyn BeFree 1.0 L Water Filter Bottle ($50)  These BPA free water filters are incredibly quick and easy to use. Their flow rate is also excellent, they’re lightweight, and they also pack down super small.

10.2 oz. Counter Assault Bear Spray ($65)  This is the gold standard of bear spray, and it is an essential tool for staying safe on the trail! This one can spray 40 feet, and the holster makes it easy to store and access while hiking and backpacking. 

Ombraz Sun Glasses ($150) – These sunglasses don’t just look super cool— they’re also super comfortable! The armless design means they won’t give you a headache or fall off during a long hike. Use code ‘BGA20’ for $20 off your order!

Kuhl base layers ($70 – $99) – Good base layers help regulate your temperate and keep your skin safe from the sun. Kuhl’s Engineered Hoody ($70)Agility Pullover ($85), and Athena Pullover ($99) are our top picks for staying cozy, cute, and safely covered up on chilly hikes!

Rab Microlight Alpine Jacket ($280) – Cozy jackets are ESSENTIAL for tackling hikes in a wide variety of cold conditions. We love that these Rab jackets are water resistant and have structured hoods that help keep us warm even on the coldest mornings. Gwyn has the Rab Microlight Alpine Jacket in Meltwater, and Amiana has the same jacket in the color ‘Deep Ink.’ The men’s version can be found here.

Lowa Renegade GTX Mid Hiking Boots ($245) – With all the hiking we do good boots are essential! We love that these hiking boots are relatively lightweight, are waterproof, and that they have great support and traction. Gwyn has the color Espresso/berry, and Amiana has the color Reed/Honey

Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultra ($79) – Snowy and icy hikes require special gear to stay safe on the trail. The Trail Crampon Ultra are lightweight, versatile (they can be worn with trail running shoes, hiking shoes, and hiking boots) and durable. They’re also incredibly easy to put on and take off, and come with a nice puncture-proof storage bag.

Matador Camera Base Layer ($75) – We enjoy hiking even when conditions are tough. This waterproof, lightweight, and padded camera bag is our new go-to item for protecting our camera gear on wet, windy, and dusty hikes.
