Matador Packable Gear
Matador makes some really cool gear that is extremely packable, yet very functional. We loved the FlatPaKToiletryy Bottle, FlatPak Soap Case and FlatPak Toiletry Case. Made of Cordura fabric for durability and waterproofness. The toiletry case lets items dry out while in the case. Same with the soap bar case. Mind blown! Check out there other amazing gear here – Matador.

Tape? Yes, this tape. Gear Aid Tenacious Tape is a crucial gear item. It can fix a ripped jacket or pants. Mend a tent. Patch a sleeping pad. It works so well that every first aid kit, bug out bag and kitchen needs a roll of this. Tenacious tape has saved more adventures than I can count. Get your loved ones some. Then get some more for yourself. Stash it everywhere! MSRP $5
If you care about the person you are getting gifts for, then at least get a good carabiner. Seriously. They come in handy for lots of things besides climbing. This is one of my favorites. Black Diamond Screwgate MSRP $11
Kershaw Scallion Knife
Gifting a knife is a really special experience. Almost a bond with the recipient. Knowing that the knife will be put to use to open something up. Whether it is just the mail, or something else, it is cool to think that they will remember you for the gift. I get a little worked up on gifting knives, I know :). This is currently my favorite one to give. Plus it is made in the USA. MSRP $40
What is a tactical pen? It is a legit pen that can be used to break glass, possibly a skull…. and they write surprisingly well! This one writes so well that I use it more than any other pen. If you really care about the person you could gift them the Kershaw knife from above and the pen. “The pen is mightier than the sword” But if you have both…. You are set. Personal favorite – Boker Plus Micarta MSRP $36
