Getting outdoors is terrific, not only for your mental health but also for staying healthy. Of course, not everyone is an outdoorsman, but those who are can be very serious about their fun. Unfortunately, quality gear is often expensive. What can you get for the outdoorsy people in your life this holiday season without breaking the bank? Here are ten great gifts for outdoorsmen for under fifty dollars.
10. Official EDC Survival Kit
EDC or Everyday Carry equipment can be worn all the time, but it's also great for heading outdoors. This kit has everything your outdoorsman needs to stay safe and have fun. With a firestarter, paracord bracelet that has a compass, a knife, whistle, and flashlight, to name just a few of the items, he'll love it. Not only is the Official EDC Survival Kit a practical gift, but it's a superb value. Best of all, your favorite outdoorsman can take a little adventure with him everywhere he goes, thanks to this well-thought-out, practical, and highly portable gift.
9. Earth Pak Waterproof Dry Bag
The only thing worse than getting damp on your outdoor adventure is carrying wet clothing with your food and equipment. Every outdoorsman needs a high-quality dry bag. Not only does this waterproof bag come with a phone case, but it's also available in eight colors. From kayaking to gaming, this is one piece of essential equipment no one should be without.
8. Julbo Sherpa Mountaineering Sunglasses with Polycarbonate Lenses
Wintertime outdoor adventures require unique equipment. It's easy to forget that walking around in the snow all day can cause damage to your eyes. According to Web MD, "Snow blindness, or photokeratitis, is temporary eye pain and discomfort after exposure to too much ultraviolet (UV) light. It's like a sunburn on your eyes. It's usually not serious and will heal on its own within a few days." Save your outdoorsman from the risk of snowblindness this winter with a pair of Julbo Sherpa Mountaineering Sunglasses. The sides have removable shields for comfort. Plus, the three hundred sixty-degree adjustable temples adapt for easy wear with hats.
7. Leatherman, Rev Pocket Size Multitool
Leatherman is a classic that every outdoorsy person needs. In fact, it's best to carry a pair of these in case you need to work with both hands. The nylon sheath makes these fantastic for wearing on your belt, and having fourteen tools within easy reach is always a good choice.
6. Lifewit 32-Can Lightweight Portable Cooler Tote
If you're going to head outside for your adventures, then you need a place for food and drinks. A full-size cooler is vital for extended excursions and big group events, but sometimes you only need a small, portable tote. Lifewit's portable cooler tote is ideal for keeping snacks and drinks cold, whether it's for a day of fishing or an overnight camping trip.
5. Acorn Men's Slouch Boot Slipper
Sometimes it's the little things that make a big difference. A simple gift like a comfortable pair of warm slouch boots for inside your tent can keep sand and dirt out and toes warm even if you pitch a tent on the beach. Acorn boots are 78% Acrylic, 20% Wool, and 2% Spandex for a great fit, plus they have a durable rubber sole in case you need to walk around outside.
4. Evershop Monocular Telescope with Low Night Vision
Hunters and bird watchers will love the Evershop Monocular Telescope with Low Night Vision. Evershops are durable and shockproof so that they can handle a few bumps. Not only can your outdoorsman easily carry this monocular in their hand, but it also comes with a tripod and a smartphone holder for stationary filming.
3. Kootek Camping Hammock
Staying off the hard ground is a more comfortable way to enjoy sleeping outside. Plus, there's nothing quite as calming as chilling out under the trees in a good hammock. With a light weight, compact Kootek Camping hammock, your outdoorsman can pack it up and head out to the woods or set up in the yard for a nap in the sun.
2. Surviveware Small First Aid Kit with Labelled Compartments
Comfort is excellent, but having the right gear is vital when there's an emergency. You can show your outdoorsman how much you care this holiday season by gifting them a Surviveware Small First Aid Kit. The labeled compartments make finding the right tool simple. Moreover, this waterproof portable kit is made from rip-resistant 600D polyester to go anywhere from the car to the top of a mountain.
1. Rite In The Rain Weatherproof Side Spiral Kit
If you are seeking the pinnacle of unusual, versatile, and valuable gifts for the outdoorsman in your life, look no further than the Rite In The Rain Weatherproof Side Spiral Kit. This waterproof notebook and pen will allow them to make notes or even draw maps regardless of the weather. More than just rain, this notebook shakes off grease, mud, and sweat as well, leaving your writing intact. You can use the included pen or a standard number two pencil. Best of all, it comes with a Cordura fabric cover to protect the book and up to four writing instruments.
Picking the perfect present can be tricky. Fortunately, if you have outdoorsy friends and family, you don't have to go broke finding them incredibly cool holiday gifts. No matter what they like to do outside, there's something on this list they can use. Better still, they probably don't already own this gear. Now you can make the outdoorsman in your life happy with something they can take on their next great adventure.
