2016 Holiday Gift Guide
Deal season is here
Whether you love the deals or hate the thought of such savage consumerism, today’s the day a bunch of cool shit goes on sale. So, to aid in your search for more stuff, we combed through the best of what our pals at Huckberry have to offer, and below are a dozen standout deals.
Huckberry National Parks Pin Set, $30
This year the National Parks Service turned 100 years old. To celebrate Huckberry designed a set of seven die cast enamel pins. The set is made in the USA and includes all the best spots: Yellowstone, Acadia, Great Smokey Mountains, Grand Canyon, Zion, Yosemite, and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Stanley 8 oz Flask, $28
Whether on the mountain, at the beach, or in the backwoods, a flask is almost guaranteed to make things more interesting. This classic Stanley flask is slim enough to fit in a back pocket and made of odorless and tasteless stainless steel. Just remember, a little liquid courage can go a long way, so keep it mellow, you guys.
Rumpl Yosemite Valley Puffy Blanket, $114
Also celebrating the centennial of the National Parks, go-anywhere blanket maker Rumpl decided to pay homage to their favorite park, Yosemite, with a bird’s eye topographic blanket. The limited edition throw—available exclusively through Huckberry—is made in a recognizable forest green colorway with lime green piping.
Askov Finlayson North Hat, $29
We’re big fans of what this Minneapolis-based boutique is up to these days—they just have good taste, plain and simple. In addition to just being a handsome hat, the North beanie is part of Askov FInlayson’s Keep The North Cold campaign, where for every North hat sold, a donation is made to initiatives fighting climate change.
Finisterre Rucksack, $182
Based in the UK, Finisterre is the cold water surfing outfitter. It’s in the brands DNA. So you can guarantee this 20L dry bag is fully waterproof when they say it is. Additional features of the made in Germany backpack include high frequency welded seams, a roll top closure, multiple inner compartments and waste and chest straps for more aggressive missions.
Columbiaknit Watch Cap, $17
Since 1921 Columbiaknit has been making gear in Portland, Oregon. This chunky knit cap us made on the same '20s era machinery as always, and hits just like your grandmother made it.
Glerups Slip On, $80
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—Glerups’ Danish-made wool slippers are the best damn house shoes around. Plus they’re naturally moisture wicking and antimicrobial.
Faherty Brand Birdseye Crew, $168
No, there’s nothing technical about this piece, it’s just a damn nice crewneck sweater, that’s all. But you know what? Not every day calls for fully taped seams or hyper lightweight fabrics engineered for Everest. I fact, most don’t. So snag yourself an extremely comfy, cozy crewneck like this indigo-dyed option from Faherty and thank us later.
United By Blue Lhotse Wool Plaid Shirt, $128
Philadelphia-based United by Blue is driven by genuine environmental action—with every product sold UBB pledges to remove one pound of trash from the world’s oceans and waterways (yes, they actually deliver on that promise). So that’s great. And so the Lhotse shirt, which is made of 80% recycled polyester derived from recycled plastic water bottles, and 20% wool. Leather sueded elbow patches are a nice touch too.
Flint and Tinder Marled LS Henley, $62
The henley is a classic—just there right weight for fall and perfect as a base layer when the temps drop. Flint and Tinder’s version is made in Los Angeles of a mid-weight jersey fabric that’s extremely soft and durable.
Finistrerre Solus Parka, $214
The ideal jacket for dawn patrol sessions, whether hitting an outdoor crag or checking the IRL surf report. The Solus Parka is made of a partially recycled nylon outer fabric with PrimaLoft Silver Eco insulation fill, and is rated to 10k with fully sealed seams and a nice long fishtail cut.
Iron and Resin Rogue Vest, $78
Vests are really great. Yeah, sure, duh, right? Want tech, go Patagonia. Want something with a bit more attitude, or style, try the Rogue Vest from California’s Iron and Resin, a brand informed by surf and motorcycle culture. No it’s not waterproof, but it’s warm and lightweight. Two outa three ain’t bad.
