It’s hard to believe it’s time again to shop for the perfect holiday gifts. There's always one person in the family who loves finding the perfect gift for each family member and watching with anticipation as gifts are opened throughout the season. But finding a useful gift for someone who enjoys spending a lot of time in nature can take time and effort. And how can you be sure it’s a great quality item that will serve them well for years to come?
Our guides–Dave and Serra–dish on their favorite hiking, trail running, and outdoor gear to help get you started.
Guineafowl turned to Deuter when we wanted comfortable day packs for our guided hikes, and you can too. On top of being comfortable to wear and having pockets in all the right places for easy access, this pack is PFC-free, making it environmentally friendly.
The High Coast Hydratic Jacket is truly wind and rain-proof for those less-than-ideal trail adventures. Plus, it’s packable into its own pocket to maximize space in your pack. We love that this jacket is made from recycled materials, too.
Smartwool baselayers combine the moisture-managing properties of merino wool with the durability of nylon. Merino wool helps keep bodies cool in summer and warm in winter by wicking sweat and moisture away from the skin and drying quickly. The flatlock seams and their raglan-style sleeves prevent chafing under backpacks.
You can fully represent the Guineafowl brand, message, and love for trailblazing with others. Our merchandise has been crafted with you in mind while connecting to others who have joined the confusion!
Created to be your favorite all-around trekking trousers from spring to autumn, Keb Trousers combine low weight and high movability in a hard-to-resist format. Made from a durable, double-woven stretch fabric that dries quickly and protects legs from rough terrain.
Breathable hiking pants that are stylish, too. We’re in. Both styles are comfortable enough to hike in all day and use quality material, so your boss won’t know you’re wearing hiking pants to work. If you’re looking for do-it-all, affordable pants, this is it.
Salomon is a good choice if heavy, clunky hiking boots aren’t your thing. Lightweight and nimble, like their running shoes, Salomon hiking boots feature Contragrip technology for good footing and a lightweight feel so you can go all day. We recommend getting fitted for shoes at your local outdoor retailer before purchasing.
