As of today, we are officially two weeks from Christmas, which means if you haven’t started shopping yet you may be starting to run out of time. Thankfully, Backpacker magazine is here to help, offering 40 great gifts for the outdoor adventurer on your list this holiday season.

The list offers suggestions for just about any budget, starting with Kate’s Real Food energy bars and continuing with a host of other products that hikers, backpackers, and outdoor lovers are sure to appreciate. You’ll find everything from water bottles and t-shirts to camping and fitness gear. There are products on the list from the likes of Five Ten, Kelty, Outdoor Research, and numerous others, with options for pretty much every season and activity.

There are so many products to sift through on Backpacker‘s list that it is difficult to find a few favorites to single out. This also makes it easy to not spoil too much of the content along the way as well. Some of my favorite items include Altra Lone Peak 4.0 running shoes, a Klymit Double V sleeping pad, and a solar-powered USB battery pack from Tough Tested. You’ll also find a great soft-sided cooler from Hyrdo Flask, a heated jacket from 8K Flexwarm, and much, much more.

If you’re still looking for that perfect gift for your outdoorsy friend or family member, perhaps this list can help. Check it out here.
