Matador Pocket Blanket 2.0

You won’t believe you ever lived without this lightweight and durable blanket. When packed, the blanket is small enough to fit in your pocket (hence the name), yet unfolds to a generous 63” x 144” blanket capable of seating two adults. Newly added sand pockets and corner weights in the 2.0 version ensure the blanket stays put, even in high winds. And, the fact that it’s water repellant means you can use it as an impromptu rain poncho when unexpected showers break out.

Intervine's LED Rechargeable Headlamp

Who says you have to break the bank in order to give a gift your favorite outdoor aficionado will love? Case in point—Intervine's Led Rechargeable Headlamp is currently $18.95! It makes a great addition to pack contents. Having a directional lightsource and the ability to use both hands is invaluable when you’re working outdoors in the dark, whether you’re setting up camp, preparing meals, or chopping wood. The adjustable headband ensures you’ll get a tailored fit and four lighting options mean you’ll have all the light you need. A word of warning—these won’t last long at this price, so grab one while they’re still available.

Kammok Roo Ultralight Camping Hammock

Weighing in at just 5.6 ounces, this hammock may just change the minds of hard-core hikers who hesitate to use valuable pack weight to haul a hammock around. The rip-stop nylon holds up to repeated use, and the toggle and loop system used to attach the hammock to straps is just as good as any carabiner. And, let’s be honest—weather permitting, I’d rather sleep in a hammock over the ground any day of the week.

INTERNOVA 1500 MONSTER LED CAMPING LANTERN

When out in the wilderness, you sometimes need a really good—and, I mean really good—lantern, whether you’re heading out into the dark to investigate nature’s calls or excusing yourself for...well, nature’s call. This ridiculously luminous lantern puts out enough light to illuminate your entire campsite, but offers the option of low, medium or bright output. Internova’s rugged construction and grippy rubber base ensure the lantern stays put on the slipperiest of surfaces.

Black Beard Fire Starter

This unassuming little stick will fast become the tool your friends and family can’t live without. No matter the weather, the Black Beard Fire Starter ensures you’ll have a hot flame in no time. The stick itself weighs next to nothing (65 grams). When you need a little help getting your fire going, simply cut off an inch or two of fiber, rub it briskly in your hands and— voila!—instant tinder that will light even if it’s been submerged in water. The $9 price tag will get you a single stick, but, I’m not kidding when I say you may want to buy a three pack so you can keep one for yourself (heck, keep two—your friend will never know).
