Every year, outdoor outfitter Cabela's publishes their Holiday Gift Guide with a variety of goods carefully selected to help your outdoor experience. While they are more often recognized as a hunting outfitter, they usually get lost in the vast outdoor retail market. This year, I was sent the 2015 guide, and here are the items that I think are pretty solid, all gifts that are under $50!
Princeton Tec Headlamp.
Headlamps are a crucial part of your outdoor kit, and this one is a no-brainer for only $29.99. Runs on AAA batteries, pumping out 43 Lumens for 146 continuous hours.
Peet Powercell Portable Boot Dryer.
Designed for hunters, if you couldn't tell by the camo, these boot dryers are a welcome addition to any stocking at $29.99. Wet feet are not pleasant in any capacity, these portable dryers will remove moisture and odors to keep your boots and toes happy all winter. Just don't put them down in the woods...
Think of the Yeti Colster as a can koozie on steroids. Although this stainless steel koozie will set you back $29.99, it will last way longer and keep you cans way colder than the environmental nightmare foam ones it will replace. Keeping my drinks cold and helping the planet is a win in my book.
Men's and Women's Super Soft Flannel.
Although not a technical piece of gear, everyone needs a flannel or two in their closet for this time of year. Available in men's and women's cuts in a variety of color ways, this flannel will be the perfect pair with an evening campfire. Sure, it is not the hipster trendy brand, but fits my needs at $29.99.
Yeti Rambler Tumbler.
Rounding out the list of Outside Cincy approved items is the Yeti Rambler Tumbler. With 20oz. and 30oz. sizes available, this double walled stainless beverage companion will keep your coffee hot for quite some time. This is a must for the coffee drinker in your family! Works for cold brew coffee as well, keeping it chilled for hours as well. Prices range from $29.99-$39.99.
There you have it. Great gift ideas from Cabela's, all under $50. Even if hunting is not your thing, be sure to check our their new location at 7250 Cabela Drive in West Chester.
