Do you have someone on your holiday list who does enough moving around that it makes you feel tired? The one whose life revolves around exercising, biking, golfing, hiking and more? Hey, maybe you’re even that guy. Either way, these gifts are sure to please any active man you’re buying for this holiday season.
Osprey Raptor 14 ($140): Taking a sip from this pack while you rip down some single track is easy because it’s designed for mountain biking. Store your helmet in the lid-lock attachment and tune up your bike in a cinch with the removable tool pouch. Add in the insulated delivery system and you’ve got a more versatile raptor that can be used for skiing and riding.
Oru Collapsible Kayak Beach ($1,175): This is all that a kayak should be in about half the storage space. Thanks to origami, the Oru kayak collapses into a carry-able bag in minutes and then simply unfolds and pops back to its lightweight, sturdy shape.
Rumpl Super Fleece Blanket ($149): Even an active man needs to rest at some point, and Rumpl has created the perfect blanket to do just that. Designed for the outdoors with durable technical materials, this blanket repels water, stains and odor, and can pretty much go anywhere.
Igloo Cooler Trailmate ($299): This is a cooler on steroids. It has more storage than you can possibly imagine, two bottle openers, attachments to hold a beach umbrella or fishing pole, a slide, a lock and more. Add in those oversized wheels and the Trailmate assures that you can party anywhere imaginable.
GoPure ($30 and up): Keep your active man hydrated with filtered water even when he’s on the go. This portable water filtration system saves you and the environment from plastic water bottles and turns tap water into a much healthier hydration solution that tastes better, too.
SOG Ultra C-TI ($134): A foldable knife that doubles as a money clip is a must-have for any active outdoorsman. It’s so thin and lightweight that you almost forget it’s there—that is, until you clip a wad of 20s in it and go to slice something with the insanely sharp steel blade.
Bradley Allan Merino 1/4-Zip Sweater ($109): Whether you are a golf nut playing late into the season or just someone with an early tee time, you are going to have to layer up. The new 1/4-zip sweater looks and feels great thanks to the slim fit and super soft merino wool that naturally regulates body temperature.
Slackline Industries Beginner Slackline ($80): Walking the tight rope is now possible right in your own backyard. Whether you are shopping for a thrill seeker looking to do tricks or an average guy just trying to improve his balance and core strength, this beginner slackline will have him trying out for the Flying Wallendas in no time.
Topo Designs Mini Tenkara Rod Kit ($298): This is the perfect fly-fishing kit for beginners. It includes everything you need and is easily transportable thanks to a rod that collapses down to a mere 9.5 inches. With a kit that compact, you can totally throw it in your backpack and bike or walk to the local fishing hole.
NOBULL Lumberjack Trainers ($159): This training shoe outperforms its simple look. Its lightweight, flexible materials make it comfortable and functional. Transition from exercises in a breeze or climb ropes without worries thanks to the abrasion-proof upper.
Neo Ion Golf Watch ($150): This watch’s design is so streamlined you barely notice it. That is until you need a distance to the nearest hazard or pin. Then the Neo Golf Watch, fully loaded with 35,000 courses worldwide, will have you hitting nothing but fairways and greens. Theoretically.
IFrogz Wireless Earbuds ($34): The beauty of the IFrogz wireless earbuds lies in their simplicity. Control the Bluetooth earbuds with the wireless hub that magnetically clips to your shirt collar. This eliminates the annoying wire hanging from your side while you work out, much to the delight of your ears and arms.
Vuarnet 03 The Dude ($215): Originally modeled after the style of U.S. Air Force pilots, the 03 Skylinx is the perfect pair of sunglasses for skiing on a spring day, or for après ski out on the deck. They also happen to be the style that The Dude wore in The Big Lebowski, giving them automatic street cred.
Ryu Everywhere Jogger ($125): Sweatpants that can double as dress sweats? Well maybe not, but the thick, stretchy material is conducive to working out hard and also looks sharp. Combine that with the tailored fit and you’ve got yourself a pair of sweats that can be worn (almost) anywhere.
Fishpond Thunderhead Submersible Duffel ($400): An active man needs a bag that will stand up to his rigorous activities. This duffel is just that. It’s big enough to hold all your gear and the backpack straps make carrying it that much easier. Plus it’s constructed from bombproof materials and is 100 percent waterproof, guaranteeing your gear is safe even in the worst-case scenario.
