At 7.1 oz., the Stow is an incredibly lightweight cook system option for beginning backpackers and long-distance hikers alike.
Leatherman Signal – $119.95
Sometimes you don’t need a multi-tool with 1,000 different tools, knives, saws, picks, and everything else known to man. Sometimes, you just need a few different tools to get you out of a jam occasionally. The Leatherman Signal is a perfect blend of daily functionality, camping, hiking and biking tools, and other stuff you’d only need in an emergency. It even has a small hammer for pounding in tent stakes and a Ferro Rod for striking fires.
Sawyer Micro – $28.95
Sawyer Squeeze Water Filters have quickly become the industry standard for backcountry water filters, and the Sawyer Micro is the best of their whole line. The Micro is compact, high flowing and light, everything you could possibly want from a thread top water filter. Weighing in at 2 oz., the Sawyer Micro removes 99.99% of bacteria and protozoa and 100% of microplastics.

The Sea to Summit Cool Grip X-Tumbler is a collapsible, insulated 12 oz. backpacking cup that’s perfect for an adventure into the backcountry. Folds perfectly into a 15 mm thick disk for easy storage but can also be used as a measuring cup.
Osprey Atmos 65 AG – $270
If your family or loved ones are looking for a new backpack, but don’t know what to buy, getting them the Osprey Atmos 65 AG would be a great way to play Santa Claus this holiday season. Sporting Osprey’s patented AntiGravity suspension system, which seamlessly contours the pack around a hiker’s body, the Atmos 65 AG is an all-around excellent choice for backpackers of any skill level. Weighing in at about 4.5 lbs. the Atmos 65 AG isn’t the lightest backpack on the market, but what it lacks in lightness is made up for in comfort, space, organizational options, and large weight carrying capacity.
You don’t want to be out in the backcountry without some way of digging yourself a hole for when nature calls! Backcountry trowels sold by TheTentLab are the industry-leading lightweight option, especially when compared with other more traditional trowel choices. The Deuce #2 takes that to the next level, weighing in at just .60 oz. Grab one and hang it from a carabiner and we guarantee you’ll hardly notice it’s there until business time.
Earlier this year REI Co-op released their new line of Flash Products, including a new brand of lightweight hiking boots (the Flash Hiking Boots) and the REI Co-op Flash Insulated Jacket, an amazing new synthetic jacket made from 70% recycled materials. The REI Co-op Flash Insulated Jacket is comfortable, warm, and compresses down into its own pocket. According to REI, it’s been field-tested in 20–60-degree temperatures around the world.
Black Diamond Trail Trekking Poles – $109.95
We just ordered 8 pairs of these poles for our customers to use in the coming year and can personally attest to how great they are. Weighing in at 1 lb. 1 oz., these 7075 Aluminum trekking poles are stable, fully collapsible, and great for anything from a quick day hike or trail run, to a weeklong trip through the mountains.
NEMO Dragonfly 2 Tent – $359.95
Rated as the best backpacking tent of 2021 by Outdoor Gear Lab and countless other publications, the Dragonfly 2 Tent is a step above other competing lightweight tent manufacturers, boasting a balance of comfort, durability, low pack weight, and reasonable pricing. Weighing in at 2 lbs. 10 oz., this tent would look great under your Christmas Tree, in your backpack, or at a backcountry campsite.
