Tis the time of year when thoughts turn to holiday lists. Buying presents can be a challenge for many people. If you love adventure travel as much as we do, then I can tell you that gear is always needed and appreciated. Whether you are looking to spend a lot or a little, RoarLoud has you covered. Here are some of our suggestions for what to get the adventure traveler in your life this holiday season.
Its All in the Bag
No matter what kind of traveler you are, there is always a need for luggage, bags, anything to make lugging your stuff around the globe a little easier. In the case of rugged duffel bags, you can’t lose with the Overboard Waterproof Duffel. It is huge, durable, and 100% waterproof (not resistant..waterproof). We used these for when climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro.
It is always nice to have piece of mind when traveling. Travelon has a whole line of anti-theft bags that are wonderful for keeping your stuff safe. Their bags are slash proof, having locking compartments, and RFID blocking. We got them for travel, but ended up using them every time we go on an adventure.
Bright Gift Idea
I always love have those items that are super useful and don’t fill up or weigh down my bags. MPOWERD inflatable solar lantern is just such a product. It weighs nothing, folds down flat, and is the multi-tool of lighting. It is great for backpacking or camping, but we have used it for emergency lighting during power outages, lighting attic or other dark areas, the list goes on. It is a good product made by a good company that gives back to the community.
Have some hikers on your holiday list– no problem we have you covered for them too!
Safe Water – Smart Gift
When you are traveling to foreign countries, you’ll always hear the advise “Don’t Drink the Water”. It isn’t always as easy as you think. There aren’t many places in 3rd world nations open 24 hrs. selling bottled water to tourists that didn’t plan ahead. Fortunately we found LifeStraw. I love, love, love my LifeStraw water bottle so much, that I should be their spokes person (hint, hint). Having clean water when ever you need it no matter what the source. Whether from a questionable hotel sink or a stagnate pond in the mountains, LifeStraw is an invaluable and practical gift.
LifeStraw even made the trip to Kilimanjaro with us!
Change Is Good
One of the things that I think people forget when they travel is that like the language being different, so may the voltage be different. There is nothing more frightening than to realize your phone, tablet, laptop, and other devices may be useless because you forgot to bring a power converter. Even if you don’t travel internationally, hotel rooms rarely have enough outlets for our techie needs. This is why we love the BESTEK converter with interchangeable worldwide plugs UK/US/AU/EU and 4 USB ports.
Buying gifts can sometimes be challenging for the hard to buy for loved one. If you have an adventure traveler on your holiday list, these are our top picks for gifts to buy. Feel free to share your gift ideas with RoarLoud. We have people on our list too and always love hearing about great stuff to get!
