Products

Tundra 45 Cooler by YETI

A YETI cooler is highly coveted, and the Tundra 45 is the classic. With heavy T-Rex Lid Latches, DoubleHaul Handles, and a hinge system that simply refuses to break, this cooler can take a serious beating. It’ll hold 28 cans of beer plus ice, or anything else you can fit in 45 liters. It’s bear-proof, too — and it does its actual job (keeping things cold) exceptionally well.


msr windburner stove combo camp and hike holiday giveaway

WindBurner Stove System Combo by MSR

The WindBurner Stove System Combo is a unique, versatile stove set from Mountain Safety Research. The company has a gnarly reputation for reliable stoves, and this WindBurner stove takes “heat no matter what” to a new level. It’s a remote canister stove that uses a radiant burner to essentially negate the impact of wind on the flame, and has a pressure regulator for increased performance in cold. The Combo system comes with a 2.5L sauce pot and 8″ skillet, each with built-in ring for maximum fuel usage. The pot comes with a strainer lid, and everything nests. For cooking in the backcountry, or even at a casual campsite, this thing is hard to beat.


Print Option Waimea Canyon-kauai lo res

Kauai or Luffenholtz Beach Photo Print (24 x 36) by Adam Mowery

Adam Mowery is a professional adventure photographer that has been featured in the Boy Scouts of America, Backpacker Magazine, and the National Parks Conservation Association, among others. He is offering the choice of one of two prints — the stunning Kauai landscape pictured here, or Luffenholtz Beach. The print will be printed on Kodak ENDURA Metallic paper that provides exceptional visual interest and depth to the image.


marmot precip

PreCip Jacket by Marmot

The Marmot PreCip may be the most famous rain jacket in the world. It has been a staple 2.5-layer shell for a decade, and continues to fend off water with aplomb. With an adjustable hood, zippered pockets, hook-and-loop hand cuffs, and a wide range of sizes and colors, you will dig this jacket. The Marmot PreCip won our Budget Pick Award.


LifeSaver Liberty Bottle

Liberty Bottle by LifeSaver

LifeSaver’s Liberty bottle is a portable water purifier, a water bottle, and an in-line pump all in one convenient package. It exceeds standard purification standards like NSF/ANSI P231 and WHO2011, and removes bacteria, cysts, and most importantly viruses (which water “filters” do not). It has a 400 ml capacity in the bottle itself, or you can use the five foot pump hose to filter directly into another bottle, like a Nalgene or Hydro Flask.


Nikwax_6-pack_assortment

Gear Care Six Pack by NikWax

NikWax is the leader in outdoor cleaning products, and they’ve included their Gear Care Six Pack in this giveaway. That includes the following products: Tech Wash, TX.Direct, Down Wash Direct, Basewash, Footwear Cleaning Gel, and Waterproofing Wax for Leather. This assures you’ll be able to increase the longevity of your gear, and keep it performing as it should.


granite gear Go N Stove Travel Pack

The Go N Stow from Granite Gear is a handy ultralight day pack. Weighing just half a pound, this 18L pack zips down into a fanny-pack that can be worn around the waist, slung over the shoulder, or shoved in a pack.

granite gear hikester

Hikester by Granite Gear

Another backpack from Granite Gear, the Hikester is tooled for urban life, specifically the college-bound.

The back panel is made of molded foam and great for every day carry.


broosk running dash half zip

Dash Half Zip by Brooks Running

The sleeves hand thumb looks for and the zipper allows you to vent a lot, or zip the full collar all the way up.


cascade mountain tech 3 K Carbon Fiber Trekking Poles

3K Carbon Fiber Trekking Poles by Cascade Mountain Tech

The 3K Carbon Fiber Trekking Poles from Cascade Mountain Tech have a host of excellent features and materials to keep you supported on the trail. Each pole weighs 8 ounces, which is quite light, and they have a Quick Lock mechanism to easily adjust the height from 26-54″. The grips are made of cork, and the shaft is made of 3K Carbon Fiber, which uses a 2×2 weave for increased durability and flex. They come with tons of attachments and a carrying case, too.


Cascade-Mountain-Tech-Low-Backpacking-Chair-Black_2048x

Ultralight Packable Camp Chair by Cascade Mountain Tech

Cascade Mountain Tech’s Ultralight Packable Camp Chair is pretty much what the name says — a lightweight, low-riding camp chair that collapses into a small package. At just under 2.5 pounds, this chair uses aluminum shock-cord poles and a 600D polyester seat with breathable mesh. Excellent for a small camp chair, or something you can take to festivals or days in the park.


SNAP Headlamp by Princeton Tec

princeton tec SnapPrinceton Tec is known for headlamps, and the SNAP is a new offering that impressed us at Outdoor Retailer. The SNAP is a 200 lumen headlamp that is all about versatility. It’s a typical headlamp that wraps around you head, but the light snaps out of the headlamp housing and can then be used on your bike, as a lantern, or as a hand-held flashlight. Princeton Tec includes different attachments to make this possible, and the convenience is impressive.


adventure frog Quadra-Four-Panel-Solar-Power-Bank-17_2048x

Quadpro Solar Power Bank by Adventure Frog

Portable solar charges are gaining in popularity every year, and the Quadpro Solar Power Bank by Adventure Frog is small, powerful, and surprisingly useful. There are four solar panels that you can drape over a backpack, your tent, or on the ground (or just about anywhere). When folded together the device fits in the palm of your hand, and closes with two snaps and a leather exterior. It has a 6500mAh battery, which is not huge, but more than enough for most outdoor excursions. It also has wireless charging for phones that are capable.


adventure frog hydration-Bladder1_2048x

Hydration Bladder by Adventure Frog

You can’t go wrong with hydration bladders, and the Hydration Bladder by Adventure Frog is solidly built for any hiking or backpacking you embark on. It’s a two liter bladder with a simple bite-to-suck mouth piece, and it fits Sawyer MINI water filters. Durable, simple, and built for easy hydration.


stasher multi pack

Stasher Multi-Pack by Stasher

Stasher is known for one incredible product: the Stasher bag. It’s a silicon-based bag that closes with a pinch lock design (like a Ziplock), keeping your food fresh and organized. It can go in the dishwasher, be boiled, frozen, and you can even cook in it. This pack includes a half gallon size, two sandwich bags, and a snack size.


heroclip medium

Heroclip Carabiner by Heroclip

Heroclp hyas made waves by putting a new spin on the classic carabiner. The extra hook along the top of the standard carabiner allows you to clip and hang, and the swivel makes it so you can hang with ease. The useful-ness is seemingly endless — our team has been using them constantly.


humangear flexibowl

FlexiBowl by humangear

humangear has included four items in this giveaway: the first being the Flexibowl. This is a silicon-based bowl that is plenty rigid for eating, yet folds easily to store in a mug or backpack. You can also fold down the top part of the bowl to create a smaller bowl, depending on meal size. The Flexibowl weighs just four ounces.


humangear gobites duo

GoBites Duo by humangear

The GoBites Duo by humangear is a simple, effective utensil. It works in the backcountry, the office, on the metro, and in any campsite. Instead of the classic spork, humangear decided to make a spoon and a fork that clip together. You can use them separately (like sharing with someone who forgot a utensil), clip them together for an extra-long spoon or fork, and they nest on top of each other for storage. The fork even has a hard angled edge that acts like a basic knife.


humangear gotube+

GoToob+ Medium by humangear

The GoToob+ is a simple and convenient way to store liquid. Perfect for travelers, this will allow you to take shampoo (or any liquid) in an easy to clean, easy to access, reusable bottle. It stands up on the lid, and the soft design allows you to squeeze it easily into your hand.


humangear capcap+

capCAP+ by humangear

The capCAP+ by humangear operates on the principle that your current cap, for whatever water bottle you have, is not quite cutting it. The capCAP+ is a replacement cap for nearly every wide mouth bottle out there, including Nalgene’s and Hydro Flask’s. The cap seals excellently, has a clip for uncapping, and a durable loop for attaching to your pack.
