Unique Gift Ideas (Part 2)

Finding appropriate gifts for your loved ones can be difficult. That’s why we created this list of unique gift ideas! Helinox: Helinox implements DAC technology in outdoor equipment designs. Company leaders met with the most experienced outdoors people in the world and asked them what they want from their gear. Engineers used the answers to create products like Helinox backpacking chairs and tables, which are lightweight, strong, compact, and easy to use. Appalachian Outfitters carries the chairs (available in multiple colors) and the table.

Kletterwerks: This Montana-based company began long before Kletterwerks Rock Pack opened in the 1970s. After many years of ups and downs, the company succeeded. Kletterwerk’s handmade bags are respected around the world, even becoming choice gear for Navy SEALS and Special Operations Teams. Stop by Appalachian Outfitters for the Flip Day Pack, the Weston Day pack, the Market Day Pack, and the Rock Daypack.

Weston ExOfficio: Appalachian Outfitters carries the complete line of ExOfficio underwear for men and women. These items are odor resistant, durable, lightweight, moisture wicking, fast drying, and comfortable. Since 1987, ExOfficio has designed travel apparel that performs with the efficiency and intelligence of technical athletic gear, enhancing your comfort without costing you style.

Hydro Flask: After an epiphany in 2008, the founder of Oregon-based Hydro Flask released a BPA-free, lightweight, odor and bacteria resistant, double-wall vacuum insulated, stainless steel, and attractively colored drinking bottles. The bottles keep liquids hot for 12 hours or cold for 24 hours, regardless of environmental temperatures. Plus Hydro Flask has a 5% Back policy: 5% of the company’s net profit will go to your choice of charity. Appalachian Outfitters carries the 64oz beer Growler for your holiday shopping list.

WeWOOD: Two eco-friendly entrepreneurs and an Italian watch lover collaborated to create WeWOOD watches. The company uses Miyota parts and 6 different types of scrap-wood for an attractive hybrid of modernity and nature. Plus, for every WeWOOD watch that is purchased, the company plants a tree. All of the watches are lightweight, biodegradable, 100% natural wood, and chemical-free. See the styles for men and women at Appalachian Outfitters.
