Gifts for the Adventurous

Adventure Gear of the Year 2011

For those that are into the camping adventure side of travel, National Geographic Adventure (RIP paper magazine version, NG Traveler is just not the same) has just released their 2011 Gear of the Year list.

Some of my favorites from the list:

Nikon COOLPIX P300 12.2 CMOS Digital Camera with 4.2x f/1.8 NIKKOR Wide-Angle Optical Zoom Lens and Full HD 1080p Video (Black)

The Nikon Coolpix P300 point and shoot looks like a good option, although its not water and dust proof as is the Fujifilm FinePix XP10 12 MP, which, for an adventure traveler, is a must.

Fujifilm FinePix XP10 12 MP Waterproof Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom and 2.7-Inch LCD (Green)

Casio Edifice Black Label Chrono - Racing Machine Motif Dial - Black Resin Strap

I am a fan of the Casio Edifice Black Label Collection. The line is better looking than the most of the timex expedition line and there are a range of prices.

Klean Kanteen 27 Oz Reflect Bottle

I also like the Klean Kanteen Reflect.  It reminds me of the vintage style Stanley Thermoses.  Made of all stainless steel, it will keep your water clean and looks good too.

Pendleton Glacier National Park Full Blanket

I especially like the Pendleton Glacier National Park Blanket.  Not sure I want to spend almost $200 on a blanket though.  

Pendleton Crater Lake National Park Queen Blanket 

They also have an even better looking one
