Picking out gifts can be a challenge. Most gift guides just show you the newest and trendiest gear. It’s often expensive and unnecessary since an avid backpacker probably already owns some version of it. Choosing gear can also be very personal; size, weight, and fit very significantly. For items that they will have to carry, wear, and live in for extended periods, they might prefer to pick them out themselves.
