2022 Outdoorsman Gift Guide
For the Trekker
With how popular hiking is as a pastime, it's shocking if you don't know at least one person who's particularly passionate about this activity. These guys generally don't want to lug around a bunch of gear, so give them the lightweight Hiker Medic. This hiking first aid kit includes the best hiking first aid gear and even an emergency whistle in case they get lost on the trail.
For the Fisherman
As fun as fishing can be, how many times does your friend complain about dropping things in the water and losing or water-logging them? If this is a genuine problem for them, get them the Boat Medic waterproof first aid kit this year. Not only is this kit waterproof, it's also crush-, dust-, and all-around life-proof! And to make this fantastic kit even better, it floats, so you don't have to worry about it joining Davy Jones' locker.
For the (Hopefully) Happy Camper
While camping isn't without its stresses, many people love the opportunity to spend multiple, uninterrupted days out in nature. The longer you're there, the more you can see, do, and experience. However, they shouldn't have to worry about first aid on top of squirrels eating through their sleeping bags (yes, this is an actual concern. Don't leave food anywhere near them). The Recon first aid kit not only contains all the supplies your friend may need, but it also has some extra space for them to slip any snacks or extra gear they need inside.
For the Injury-Prone Daredevil
Whether they're into a little bit of everything or are laser-focused on a singular, arguably sketchy activity, they always seem to turn up with a random injury or have a new crazy story about how someone they know got absolutely wrecked every time you see them. If you have a buddy whose life you may or may not fear for, you should definitely give them at least the Wound Closure suture kit this season. This kit includes four ways to address the cuts and lacerations your friend may accumulate on their less-than-safe adventures.
For the Runner
It doesn't matter if you're a supportive friend or secretly think morning runners are insane (you're not alone. Mornings are evil). The cardio lovers in your life are just as likely to get hurt while out and about, no matter how much they talk about the health benefits that come from running. So how do you preemptively cover any injuries they'll come across? Look no further than the Sidekick IFAK pouch! Including Superskin bandages and blister strips, hydration packets, and friction frosting, your cardio-crazy companion will be more than ready for the everyday running injuries they may get.
No matter how your friends choose to enjoy the outdoors, you can pick out the perfect gift for all of them following this gift guide and easily skyrocket from the worst to the best gift-giver around!
