The Ultimate Gift Guide for Every Outdoor Junkie in Your Life

11/8/17 by Matt Wastradowski

We feel your pain: Even as you’re making a list and checking it twice, it’s never easy to shop for outdoor enthusiasts. They always seem to know about the latest products and a handful of new outdoor gadgets will get funded on Kickstarter in the time it takes to read this article. It’s also becoming increasingly complicated to weed through all the product features and jargon to figure out which ones are actually worth it. This year, you’ll need to get creative.

But we’re saving you the headache this season by putting together this gift guide, featuring thoughtful ideas for every outdoor junkie in your life. Whether they’re new to the outdoors, a seasoned weekend warrior, or somewhere in between, you’re sure to find something they’ll love. Besides this list, check out our Holiday Gift Guide for everyone on your list from kids to winter adventurer’s to every in between on Marmot.com.

For the Weekend Warrior: Marmot Kompressor Backpack

We all have that friend. If they’re not Instagramming their latest backcountry adventure, they’re probably recovering from the last one or even planning their next trip.

A serious adventurer deserves a serious daypack. This holiday season, gift your on-the-go friend with the Marmot Kompressor Backpack. The pack works equally well for day hikes and overnight backpacking trips, thanks to an included trekking pole attachment, removable closed-cell foam back sheet, sternum strap, and a zippered lid pocket for easy access. Best of all? It weighs in at a mere 10 ounces.

For the All-Season Hiker: Marmot Featherless Hoody

We get that winter conditions aren’t always ideal—snow, fog, ice, wind, and rain can get in the way of winter adventuring—but no self-respecting outdoor enthusiast would let the coldest few months of the year slip by without at least some adventure.

Keep them warm this winter with the versatile Marmot Featherless Hoody (available for men and women). The revolutionary hoody uses loose-fill 3M™ Thinsulate™ Featherless synthetic insulation that matches the traditional 700-fill-power down jacket—but with a ton of extra features. The water-resistant hoody includes zippered hand pockets, elastic-bound cuffs, and more.

For the Cold-Weather Camper: Marmot Hammer 2P Tent

Epic winter camping trips demand an all-season tent that’s up for the job. This winter, give the cold-weather camper in your life a Marmot Hammer 2P tent—and prepare them for the year’s harshest conditions.

Marmot thought all of winter’s challenges while designing the Hammer 2P tent. The shelter features single wall construction with a waterproof, breathable fabric, a bathtub-style floor, internal organizers, and a removable vestibule with snow flaps.

For the Friend Who Always Gets Stuck in Bad Weather: Marmot PreCip Jacket

You know who we’re talking about - the friend who never seems to have enough layers. Or a rain jacket. Or they just have bad luck and the clouds seem to roll in as soon as they hit the trail. This friend (or family member) needs a PreCip jacket. With options for both men and women, this lightweight jacket weighs in at just 11 ounces and has all kinds of features to make it comfortable: an adjustable hood that rolls into the collar, PitZips for ventilation, Angel-Wing Movement™, and the whole thing stuffs into it’s own pocket for easy carrying.

For the Adventurer Who Has (Almost) Everything

That adventurer who thinks they have everything, but they’re still wearing that same torn up shirt from their very first 14er for “sentimental reasons”? Get them something else to stay warm around the fire, like the Anderson Flannel or Wiley Jacket. Maybe they’ll get the hint..


When it comes to gift giving, it doesn’t matter if you go big or small - it’s all about finding that perfect gift that the other person will love!
