GTFO Adventurer's Gift Guide
Whether you have someone who loves adventuring around the world or around the neighborhood, here are some fantastic gifts to keep them going.
Adventures around town:
Adventures around town always seem to be done by bicycle. Whether it's a leisurely ride around town, a morning jaunt to brunch and coffee, or an afternoon outing to a wine bar or brewery, these gifts will help make the most of any outing.
Road Trip Time:
With so many amazing destinations a short ride away in the southwest, road trips are an indispensable tool in the adventurer's belt. While the journey is all about the destination, it's important to make sure you arrive with everything you need and have room to bring home a few goodies.
Car Camping Kit:
Car camping combines all the fun of the great outdoors with the ability to bring along an embarrassingly large number of creature comforts.
Adventures with dogs:
When four-legged friends are tagging along there are a few more considerations to bring along everything they need, and bring home (or to the trashcan) everything they leave behind.

If you're a proportional six-footer, congrats: you can use literally every piece of gear on the market. If you're a big guy, however, you know it's a frustrating marketplace. I'm here to help. For reference, here are my basic dimensions: 6'5", 235 pounds, dress shirt is 17"x37". I wear XL-tall shirts and 38x34 pants—as long as they’re not straight legged, boot cut, or whatever else skinny hipsters have pushed the market toward. I'm built with more of a weak-man's barrel chest than a fat-man's beer belly. I have what Lululemon calls "hockey butt." If you're tall and not broad, or broad and not tall, these reviews should still help you find usable gear. Each year I return to the Blue Ridge Mountain area of Virginia to hunt white-tailed deer. Each year I am c
The 7E Chronicles, sponsored by Gaia GPS (sign up here with a discount). Some camo gear provided by Under Armour Ridge Reaper ( shop here on Amazon ). $249.99 on Amazon This weekend I finally had the opportunity to get back up to the Kachina Peaks Wilderness sub-unit of 7E after months of closure due to drought and fire risk. It was great to get back up in the woods, even greater because I was wearing my new Under Armour Ridge Reaper Infil Ops boots . This review is based mostly on just one day in the field, so there's more to experience; but based on how well they worked without being broken in they're going to be great.
Backpack in action, camo so good you can hardly see the pack against everything else A couple years ago I picked up the Ridge Reaper 1800 Backpack to use on my whitetail hunts. I needed something with decent capacity that wasn't split between multiple pockets to carry my insulated and outer layers on the walk to my deer stand, and being 6'5" that takes a decent sized backpack. Unfortunately, Under Armour doesn't appear to make this pack anymore...so why am I talking about it? Because it's a great pack that you should pick up if you find one used--and because recent marketing material has shown this pack--or one similar--in the Ridge Reaper Forest pattern, which didn't exist on the market, at least, when UA stopped making this pack which makes me believe that it could make a reappearance on store shelves. If you want to see this backpack come back as badly as I do, consider contacting Under Armour--they're @underarmour and @UAhunt on Twitter and
