Bring me my shotgun. Today we focus on gifts for the outdoor enthusiast. Whether he’s a crack shot or couldn’t hit the side of a barn, an expert angler or full of fish stories, or a guy that just likes the outdoor look, we’ve got what you need to make his Christmas list look very Cub Scout. Here we go:
From top left:
1. Filson Vintage Flannel Work Shirt: Filson has come out swinging over the past year…adding a bunch of new stuff, as well as new fits. Their work shirts have a trimmer fit that remains bulletproof, but with better wearability, rather than only being weekend-friendly.
2. Glock 19 Gen 4 Pistol: All the rage this season; the perfect compliment to that new black alligator belt. Carry permit sold separately.
3. Randolph X Ball and Buck Hunter’s Sunglasses: There’s something about the tan-lens look. Yes, it kills all the glare, but it also pays homage to another acid-induced Hunter.
4. Sid Mashburn Fox Club Tie: The perfect gift for the hunter that likes to bring his work to the office. Pair this with a navy blazer or with a medium grey suit and they’ll know you mean business.
5. Pesca Muerta Hat: Absolutely incredible. If I have to give you any sort of reason to buy this hat, then we need to speak offline.
6. Orvis Mirage Fly Reel: Quit staring at #7 and get some heavy duty hardware to go catch one. Get the gold, baby.
7. Smathers & Branson Bonefish Belt: A waist-high reminder of what you are working for. That fly fishing trip just needs to be scheduled…go get some ghosts.
8. ‘How To Stay Alive in the Woods’: The perfect book to forget when you decide to go camping. Pre-read before the trip.
9. Beretta Wind Barrier Short Zip Sweater: The adult version of your Patagonia Snap-T.
10. JR Shirt from Criquet: Throw some Texas-sized badass-ery into the mix. Criquet killed it with their JR shirt, a cross between a shirt-jacket and a heavy flannel. Great for the field…if you can get it back from your wife.
11. Ball and Buck Wingone Thrower: Sure, you can shoot. But can you throw? Practice makes perfect…just avoid tennis elbow.
12. Orvis Trout Series Wooden Net: He won’t forget this one on his way to the river.
13. Edgevale Cast Iron Pants: They take a licking and keep on ticking. They have a much better fit that those other heavy canvas pants that tend to wear like a grill cover.
14. Ledbury Moleskin 5-pocket Pants: A dressed up version of work pants. The moleskin will keep you warm, just tuck your pants in to your boots…they take a while to dry out.
15. Beretta 486 Shotgun: For when you need to change out the mantle-piece.
16. LL Bean Maine Guide Four Piece Waxed Canvas Rod Case: Good luggage isn’t only for you. Your rod and reels need a ride. Give them a good one.
17. Hand Warmers: Yes, I’m sure the fish will bite in 39 degree weather. It’ll help to know you can feel your hands. Or your feet.
18. Orvis Sandanona Boots: Kicks that fit in just about any sort of outdoor, hunting, orange-wearing situation. Wear them in the field, on the range, or at a Tennessee game (they all come straight from the deer stand anyway).
19. Peach State Pride Topo Trucker Hat: It’s like wearing the mug shot of who you are hunting. Very ‘Island of Dr. Moreau’.
20. Indera Union Suit from Tractor Supply: In a world of technical long underwear, stand out. The only thing that’s missing are footies…but then who would take you seriously?
