Holiday Gift Ideas-Climber Edition

Climber Gift Ideas

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you have a relaxing day filled with family, friends, food, and plenty of outdoor fun. Today’s ten gift ideas are for those climbers in your life, whether they be rock, ice, or alpine, dirtbags or not.

1. Gregory Alpinisto: An all-time classic, the Alpinisto was built for professional mountaineers and serious alpine athletes. This year Gregory updated the pack so you can haul a larger alpine load in comfort or strip it down to a 2 lbs. summit pack. MSRP $229

2. Salewa Pro Gaiter: These boots are a definite splurge item for the ice or mixed climber on your list. The Salewa Pro Gaiter feature the only flexible mountaineering sole for easy walking which can become 100% stiff when you need to climb, all at the flip of a switch. MSRP $599

3. Five Ten Canvas Guide Tennie: Updated with a durable, cotton canvas upper, there is no better approach shoe than the Five Ten Guide Tennie. High-friction Stealth C4 Dotty tread outsoles enable you to scramble over any rocky terrain with ease. MSRP $110

4. Black Diamond Magnetron Carabiners: Black Diamond uses the power of magnets to re-invent the locking biner in the Magnetron RockLock and GridLock carabiners. Two magnetic arms in the gate and a steel insert in the nose of the carabiner create a secure and simple closure. The gate can be opened using just one hand. MSRP $24.95

5. Icebreaker Windproof and Water Resistant Jackets: Dedicated rock climbers headed south in the winter to places like Red Rocks, Joshua Tree, or Indian Creek, will most definitely need a warm layer that is windproof. The new Icebreaker jackets gain bonus points for doubling as a suitable around town piece when you want to head in for a warm meal. MSRP $300-$400

6. Timberland Radler Trail Insulated Camp Booties: Cold weather and high-altitude climbers will appreciate the 400 grams of Primaloft insulation and GripStick Rubber outsoles for walking around camp. The boots zip together for ultimate packability. MSRP $80

7. Outdoor Research Lodestar Jacket: Purpose built for ice and alpine climbers, the Lodestar Jacket uses a combination of strategically placed, lightweight, durable, and highly water-resistant Polartec Powershield Pro, and extraordinarily breathable and insulating Powershield High Loft. This is the ideal hybrid softshell jacket for cold weather climbing. MSRP $450

8. Mammut Realization Shorts: For the climber who has everything, give them the Mammut Realization Shorts. These climbing shorts with built-in harness are sure to turn heads at the rock gym. MSRP $200

9. Garmin Fenix: The new Fenix GPS watch from Garmin provides the alpine climber with all the navigational, altitude, and weather tools they need, right at their fingertips. MSRP $400

10. Energy Bars: Fill your climber’s stocking full of energy bars to fuel them through the winter season, such as the seasonal flavors from Clif Bar or the variety of delicious flavors from Kate’s Real Food. MSRP $1.50-$2.79
