Tops and bottoms for adults. Books and lights for kids. Plus a different style of knife for harvesting game, a unique fire starter and a creative medical kit for patching up your pet during an emergency in the field. There’s a little bit of everything for everyone in this year’s gear roundup. Dig around in this grab bag of garb.

Outdoor Research Helium Rain Jacket


You’ll like this jacket for all the things it doesn’t have. No hip zips for rain to drip through on your walk, no ties flipping in your face on a run. It’s waterproof, windproof and breathable.

Fjällräven Vidda Pro Ventilated Trousers


These pants are wearable renewables. They’re made of recycled materials including bottle fibers and fabric scraps. Plenty of pockets. Hip-to-knee ventilation zips plus reinforced knees and backside.

Earth Almanac by Ken Keffer with illustrations by Jeremy Collins


This illustrated book is also a calendar. Read one entry daily starting with winter solstice. Learn about natural history, astronomy, geology and wildlife biology with more than 90 stories per season. 

UCO Sprout Mini Lantern


This lantern is light, packable and dangles. A magnetic lanyard helps it hang inside the top of a tent. Dimmer switch and blue moonlight mode too. Needs three AAA batteries to glow.

Gerber Downwind ULU


Hunters, here’s your new buddy. Harvest elk in the field with this angled blade. It’s designed with a curve to ease fatigue. It also provides deep, sweeping cuts with a large blade that’s sheathed in a waxed canvas pouch until you notch your tag. 

SOL Fuel Free Lighter


Think mini-taser as a fire starter with this gadget. Pop the lid for small dual arc ignition. The other end is an LED light with strobe settings. The lanyard is an emergency tinder. 

Adventure Trail Dog Medical Kit


This is a basic first aid in a box for your dog. It comes with instructions so you’ll know how to help your pet in the moment of panic. This is for camp-hike scenarios. If you hunt with your dog, you’ll want to add this.
