Over the years, I’ve gotten a chance to try a lot of gear. Since REI has such a great return policy, I never feel shy about buying new gear to test outdoors.
I had fun putting this list together, especially since I use most of these already and am constantly telling my friends to try them too (BUT there are a couple on my wishlist too). Here’s a gift guide for that kickass woman in your life!

This versatile jacket can be worn three ways. You can put everything on to stay warm and waterproof, just use the waterproof layer alone, or just use the down layer alone. We both got them when we lived in NYC and absolutely love them.
If you’re trying to buy a gift for a climber, see what their favorite pair of shoes are (or one they’ve wanted to try) and get them a new pair. I absolutely love my Scarpas and have multiple pairs. I would gladly take another to add to the collection.
Since we have no carpet, a yoga mat has been perfect for stretching and exercises. We got a Cloud Cushion Yoga Mat from PopFlex and it’s soooo comfortable. You can even get a set that comes with yoga blocks. Here’s a photo of Jacob stealing mine.
Which of these would you want most? What are you buying your outdoorsy friends this year?
