Gifts for the Intrepid Outdoorswoman

Take a look as we count 10 wild presents for the adventurous women in your life.

1. Osprey Ariel 65 AG Rucksack

 

An excellent pack, made for multi-day use, trekking through the wilderness. The Osprey Ariel provides uncompromising comfort, ventilation and stability. Organisation and accessibility are key during long adventures. These packs stand out with multiple access points including the J-Zip front panel access into the body of the pack, as well as sleeping bag compartment with wide zip entry and an internal divider.

2. A set of Icebreaker Merino Baselayers

 

It's getting chilly. There is no finer insulating base layer than merino wool, it regulates temperature, doesn't itch, breathes wonderfully and thanks to the anti-microbial properties of wool, doesn't absorb odour, remaining fresh for days of use on the trail. Take a top with a half zip so they can vent more efficiently during heavy aerobic activity like snow shoeing.

 

3. A Helle Gaupe Knife

Yes! A knife! For the discerning whittler, bushcrafter or survivalist, Helle Knives are a wonderful option. The Gaupe (Norwegian for Lynx) features a triple laminated stainless steel blade that offers extraordinary sharpness. The substantial curly birch handle is designed to sit comfortable in the hand and shaped to form a finger guard. The supplied sheath is a traditional Scandinavian design with the Lynx footprint as decoration.

4. A Rab Microlight Alpine Jacket

 

 

One of our most popular jackets and for good reason, the microlight alpine is the perfect piece of down insulation when integrated with a layering system or as an outer shell on dryer days, due to it's windproof outer fabric. It is very popular with climbers and alpinists with its helmet accomodating hood. This high quality down filled jacket is not only technically adept, it also looks great and is worn by many as an incredibly cosy everyday jacket.

5. A pair of Scarpa Vapour V Climbing Shoes

For the climber, this offering from the Italian, outdoor footwear masters, Scarpa are a great option for the climber looking to push their grade. A great all-rounder, this shoe is built around the women’s specific low volume FRW last, with a slightly asymmetrical, slightly down turned shape and a medium to low angled toe box to strike a balance between confident smearing and refined toe power.

10. A Pair of Alt-Berg Boots

With correct care, there is no reason why these boots shouldnt last you for many years.
