Hydro Flask 32-Ounce Growler ($45)
Specially designed to hold your favorite beer, this growler has double-wall vacuum insulation and insulated cap keep beer at a perfect tap temperature for 24 hours. The plastic cap seals tight to hold carbonation and a unique one-handed design ensures a perfect pour.
Petzl GriGri+ Belay Device ($150)
Handy for beginners, Petzl’s latest belay piece has an anti-panic function that automatically brakes if the belayer yanks too hard on the release, stopping the climber’s descent.
Therm-a-Rest NeoAir All Season SV Pad ($180)
This pad heavy ditches insulation for reflective layers that trap heat without adding extra weight. The Speed Valve opening allows for inflation up to three times faster than with traditional nozzles.
Jetboil Flash Stove ($100)
Faster than ever, the updated Flash can boil half a liter of water in 100 seconds flat. For maximum happiness, order the coffee-press attachment ($10) and enjoy a quickly brewed cup of joe in the morning.
MSR Hubba Hubba NX Tent ($400)
We featured the Hubba Hubba NX in our 2014 Summer Buyer’s Guide, dubbing it the perfect backpacking tent. At just 3.4 pounds, this two person tent has plenty of space to space to spread out and two vestibules for storing gear. It comes with a special compression sack that separates the tent body from the poles and stakes so you can easily split the weight between two people.
Osprey Transporter 40 Duffel ($110)
The U-shaped zipper on this bag splays the body wide open, providing easy access to nearly everything inside. The Transporter has padding on the handles, which helps it sit comfortably on your shoulders when carried as a backpack. The spacious front-zip pocket, plus three more on the outside, keep everything from toiletries to dirty laundry tidy.
Kammok Roo Hammock ($100)
The Roo is a great all-around hammock with some awesome upgrade options. You can buy the Dragonfly mosquito net, which encompasses the entire hammock while still affording plenty of room to sit up. Then there’s the weather shield, featuring Kammok’s own sun-, snow-, and rain-proof fabric.
Edelrid Ohm Assisted Braking Device ($130)
Ever take a whipper and yank your belayer four feet off the ground? The Ohm solves that problem. It replaces the first quickdraw and cams down on the rope should you fall, distributing the weight for your partner below.
Helle Eggen Knife ($120)
Yes, it’s gorgeous, but this versatile hunting knife features a drop point triple-laminated stainless steel blade that’s ideal for cutting out a fresh tenderloin to throw on the grill back at camp. The gorgeous curly birch handle offers an ergonomic grip and is carved for a finger guard. It comes with a leather sheath.
Ruffwear Swamp Cooler Dig Vest ($60)
Soak the Swamp Cooler in cold water, wring it out, then clip it over your dog’s back and chest. The three-layer coat has a wicking outer layer to facilitate evaporation, an absorbent middle layer, and soft, cooling fabric inside. As water evaporates from the coat’s middle layer, it draws the heat from your dog’s fur, cooling her through evaporation. Plus, the light-colored vest deflects the sun’s rays.
Petzl Cordex Lightweight Belay Gloves ($40)
The beige color may say “construction site,” but these gloves were made for sunny summer cragging. Durable leather palms afford ample grip when belaying and rappelling—while staving off dreaded rope burn—and the articulated fit minimizes fumbling when feeding out or taking in slack. My favorite parts, though, are the stretchy nylon backs. They act like screen doors for your hands, venting and keeping them from getting uncomfortably sweaty, while also preventing sunburn. Carabiner holes on the cuffs are icing on the cake.
Exped MegaMat Sleeping Pad ($199)
For car camping, you won’t get a better nights sleep than when using the incredibly comfortable Exped Megamat. The three-foot wide pad is constructed with a rugged nylon fabric and has an adjustable firmness that permits a fine-tuned fit with its self-inflating foam and additional hand pump.
Hydro Flask 22-Ounce Tumbler ($30)
Perfect for coffee—hot or iced—this tumbler is sure to make your office mates jealous. The narrow bottom fits in most cup holders.
Topo Designs Klettersack ($170)
Leather lash tabs and a boxy design give this bag an old-school look, but it also comes with modern amenities like a laptop sleeve, making it great for commuting. Stitched from 1000-denier Cordura fabric, Topo offers 15 different color choices.
