While some of us would rather stay cozy indoors, others love to be fully immersed in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest (rain or shine). For that person on your list who is always looking for a wave to conquer, a mountain to summit or a hidden-gem campsite, here are our top picks.

6 Holiday Gifts for People Who Love the Outdoors

An Armoured Cooler

Keeping drinks chilled may not be the top priority on an excursion (you know, safety first), but it’s pretty high up there. The Roadie cooler (from $600) from Yeti is tall enough for bottles of wine, can keep ice for days and is armoured through and through to keep your most precious amenities in one piece.

A Jacket That Goes from Slope to Après

It’s a rare feat when technical gear is paired with street style—and Helly Hansen’s Avanti jacket ($700) is that unicorn. With four-way stretch fabric and articulated arms, it’s made for shredding double-blacks, but its slim silhouette and lightweight PrimaLoft eco insulation makes it perfect for looking great on snowy patios, too.
