Fitness Gear Ideas – Perfect Gifts for the Active Outdoor Person
For the loved one who trains, works out, and wants to get the most out of the activities, this holiday gift guide list is for them. Any of the below gear will help them with training and recovery.
Hoka One One Speedgoat 2 Running Shoe
Vibram sole for mega grip and a wide platform for challenging running conditions. Known for their extreme comfort and cushioning, these Speedgoat 2 shoes really shine on trails. The 4.5mm drop is good for a natural stride. We loved the fit and comfort of the Speedgoats. MSRP $139
2XU Elite MCS Compression Tight
Compression and support to help you train better. The Elite fit well, and seem to increase performance well. I used them during an IKFF kettlebell certification course. Felt like I recovered quickly and was not as sore the next day. MSRP $119
Hyperice Hypervolt – Get your Fitness Recovery Elevated
If you work hard, you need to take recovery seriously. I have been using and loving the Hyperice Hypervolt for pre-adventure prep and post workout out recovery. Three speeds to suit your recovery needs. Battery life is surprisingly good at ~3 hours. MSRP $349
Real food, real energy. Handmade in Colorado. More adventures are fueled by Fourpoints than any other bar we have tried. Pick them up at REI, Amazon or direct.
Theragun – Percussive Therapy
The main competition for the Hyperice above is the Theragun. Both offer very similar experiences but have their subtle differences. MSRP $599
Trigger Point, The Stick, Tiger Tail – Stick based recovery tools
We did a VERY detailed comparison of all three companies stick based recover tools. Personally, I felt the Tiger Tail was the best. There are several models to choose from. The Original Tiger Tail MSRP $29 is a good start. There is also the Massage Ball MSRP $25 is also a great tool.

Eagle Creek Cargo Hauler Duffel Bag
The Eagle Creek Cargo Hauler line of duffel bags are quite impressive. Made of a lightweight, yet water resistant and durable material called Bi-Tech Armor Lite. Not only is it water resistant (thanks to the environmentally friendly coating) it is significantly lighter than other bags in this category. The 60L version we tested here was only 2lbs. The other stand out features are the dual side pockets with smooth zippers and extra handles. Making it easy to carry as a backpack, duffle or any other way we could get out hands on it. There is even a bit of padding on the bottom of the bag. This is our new favorite duffle! MSRP $99 for 60L $109 for 90L $120 for 120L and $159 for 90L Rolling Version
