10 Gifts For Hikers

Hiking is a simple hobby, so it follows that shopping for hikers is a simple task. Choosing gifts for hikers is simple if you know what you need to go for a hike. If you’ve never hiked a day in your life, however, shopping for hikers can feel like a shot in the dark. Here are some specific gift ideas for you to kick around when shopping for a hiker.

Merino wool socks from Point6

Treat your feet with a nice pair of merino wool socks. Socks always make great gifts for hikers, but Point6 socks are some of our favorite. Their quality is second to none and they make their socks in the United States.

100-ounce water reservoir from CamelBak

You’ve got to stay hydrated out there. Never run out of water on the trail with a 100-ounce water reservoir from CamelBak.

The Hustle pack from Piltdown Outdoor Co.

The Hustle isn’t the most technical day pack out there, but it’s more than suitable for a day hike, or even an overnight trip. And what it lacks in technical features it makes up for in style and class. Oh, and Piltdown is based here in Northwest Arkansas, and all of their packs are made in the USA!

Marmot PreCip rain jacket

You’ve got to have a shell out on the trail. We’ve carried the PreCip from Marmot in our store for years, and it’s one of our best selling jackets. It’s a durable and reliable windproof/waterproof jacket with a lifetime warranty, under $100. It’s hard to beat that combination.

Cathode Hooded Jacket from Outdoor Research

While this jacket is technically geared towards rock climbers, the Cathode from OR is a great layering piece that provides warmth, weather resistance, and breathability. If you’re looking for a solid insulating mid layer, the Cathode is a great choice for hikers.

Jetboil Flash cooking system

Even a day hiker should get a hot lunch out on the trail. The Flash stove from Jetboil makes that hot lunch possible. Not many stoves boast as fast a boil time as the Flash, and there’s no better backpacking stove for solo or two-person trips.

Salomon Speedcross 4

The perfect balance of lightweight speed and durable stability. The Speedcross 4 from Salomon is one of our favorite trail running shoes, and makes a perfect gift for any hiker looking to travel fast.

Hats from nativ and Fayettechill

Hats are a necessity for many hikers. A hat keeps the sun out of your eyes, the rain out of your face, and it hides a bad hair day. Local brands nativ and Fayettechill make some great hats that will get the job done on all fronts!

Ferrosi Pants from Outdoor Research

Looking for a good technical pair of hiking pants? Look no further than the Ferrosi from OR. Lightweight and breathable, the Ferrosi provides great from wind and water, and their durability makes them an ideal pair of trail pants.

Polarmax base layers

Comfort on the trail starts with a good base layer. Polarmax base layers are made right here in the United States. They make base layers for a wide range of temperatures and activities for men and for women.
