Welcome to the Second Annual Engearment Winter Gift guide. This year, we've expanded our guide to include a more gear, which means it's automatically better. We've had our hands on every single piece in the guide. Some made it in for being a ridiculous bargain. Others were the absolutely best pieces we've found all year. Some were just darn fun. But, you can rest assured that each of these items will serve you well on your adventures. Full disclosure - Many of the links to buy are affiliate links. Engearment may earn a commission on the sale. Read more about it here.

CAMP

Whether you're on an expedition or a weekend at a campground in Rocky Mountain National Park, proper gear makes camping comfortable, relaxing, and fun. We've selected a few pieces for you, each of which we've had our hands on to make sure they're worthy of your next trip into the woods.

BODY

You can't use your favorite gear if you don't have your health.  We tapped our resident personal trainer and asked him to select some fitness and nutritional gear that will help you make the most of every outdoor adventure.

SHRED and SPIN

A pair of wheels gets you deeper and further into the outdoors than any other human-powered transportation.  Whether you're on wide knobbies or skinny slicks, there is no bad season for biking.

SLOPE

Ah, schussing.  Is there any better feeling?  No, we didn't make up that word.  It's German or something.  Point is, this is the perfect time - gear-wise - to upgrade or fill out your quiver.  The latest skis and boards just dropped.  Binding tech is better than ever.  Even ski poles are in a renaissance.  If you haven't looked at new plank(s) in a while, now's the time!

RIVER

A day on the river is a day of peace.  Gear you don't have to think about is the peacekeeper.  Check out our selection of top fly gear for your favorite angler.

STRIDE

Whether on road or trail, the proper gear makes the difference between a sick run and a horrific, suffering chafe-fest.  Grab some of our favorite running gear to make the miles disappear under your feet.

JOURNEY

Catch the travel bug recently?  Plenty of gear companies make travel gear too!  The journey to a new place can be just as much, if not more, of an adventure as traversing the great outdoors.  Make sure you have the proper gear to make you trip all it can be.

GALS

It's a gals' gear renaissance.  Never have women had so many options in technical, stylish gear that actually functions as well as it looks.  We have suggestions covering everything from insulation to city boots and everything between.  Guys reading this - you're going to win the holidays.

GUYS

The freshest gear for guys - from head to feet, we have suggestions to cover everything.  Whether you need to keep warm, look good, or keep the stink away, you'll find the perfect gift here.  Women - these are the pieces your guys want.

KIDS

Kids need gear too.  Whether you're taking them along for your adventures or sending them off on their own, proper gear keeps them safe and warm while they have a blast in the outdoors.
