Next time you tell that outdoorsy friend or family member to take a hike, make sure they head into the great outside equipped enough to enjoy it. In this guide, we have more than two dozen gift recommendations ranging from a titanium French press to a wool hat woven in Kathmandu. Our Gear team has tested everything on this list in the past few years.
