Christmas Gift Guide: 12 gadget gifts for campers, wanderers and explorers

Osprey Cyberport (£70)

Street brats can hear someone taking an iPad out of a bag at distances up to half a mile away. Less than a minute later: wallop! You is robbed, bruv. Dumbfound their dastardly ‘drums with this Osprey rucksack (there’s a courier bag, too) which has a see-through and touch-transferring iPad pocket.

Vivo Synth Hiker (£115)

The grandfathers of the barefoot craze for walkers and runners also do off-road shoes, because why shouldn’t forest-dwellers enjoy the natural splurge and flex of unencumbered feets? An aggressive sole pattern and puncture-resistant layer do nothing to dilute the feet-on-the-deck feeling of barefoot.

More after the break...

DaKine Trapper (£40)

Keepeth your head heat in check with this cranial-encapsulating trapper hat from surf-and-snow maestros DaKine. Has the added advantage of preventing people from grabbing at your flaxen locks, if that's ever an issue.

Columbia Bugaboot Original Omni-Heat (£120)

They say that if you have cold feet you should put a hat on. Well, the hell with that. We say if you have cold feet you should whack on some decent socks and these reassuringly expensive cold weather boots, complete with Columbia’s reflective thermal Omni-heat lining. Then we’ll talk hats, OK?
