A water filtration straw that’ll lighten their water load on remote trips without weighing down their pack. Plus, it’s more or less a magic trick.

person using the straw to drink directly from a stream


Amazon

Filters up to 1000 liters of contaminated water without iodine, chlorine, or other chemicals. Does not require batteries and has no moving parts. Removes minimum 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites, and filters to 0.2 microns; surpasses EPA filter standards.

Promising review: “I frequently hike and camp in the backcountry all over the United States. Carrying the amount of water that I need to survive during these trips is just not feasible due to the weight. I recently took a LifeStraw out for a test on a backcountry hike in the Rocky Mountains. Every stream, lake, or other water source that I came across, I stopped for a drink. I was drinking fresh snow melt and also from lakes that are home to beavers and other wildlife. There was no added taste to the water and I didn’t get sick during or after the trip. The one drawback to the LifeStraw is that it does take a bit of suction to start and keep the water flowing. When you’re at high altitudes in the mountains this leads to longer ‘drink breaks’ because you can get winded pretty easy while trying to suck up water through the LifeStraw. However, its size and weight advantages when hiking mountainous terrain vastly outweigh this minor drawback.” —Charlie

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. It arrived on Monday and on Tuesday morning I woke up with a bug bite on my arm. I used this little tool (3x per the instructions) and documented with photos. Immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite was gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!” —Rebecca

amazon.com, Amazon

Includes one double camping hammock 118”x78”, two ropes (each 137”), two tree-friendly straps (each 52”x1”), and two solid steel carabiners. Supports up to 500 lbs.

Promising review: “Very happy with this purchase! Not kidding or exaggerating, it took me 45 seconds to set up by myself. Very durable yet lightweight. Withstands a very rough 4-year-old monkey (my little sister). 100% sure I will be purchasing another one to camp in; instead of a tent. My little sister loved covering herself up and pretending she was cocooned. I bring that up because I saw some questions asking if you can close it up to avoid bugs and if in Florida, as I am, I wouldn’t suggest doing that. If the sun is out, it gets quite hot. Not necessarily because it’s a thick material, because it’s not, it’s mostly because there is no ventilation. My little sister didn’t seem to mind but the rest of us sure did. Also, the tree straps included are great! Really appreciate that they were included because some national parks only allow hammocks hung if you have tree straps. I hung it up between two Florida long leaf pines (the bark falls off these trees very easily), and they held up amazingly.” —Brenda Stewart

Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in eight colors).

FYI, this would be an ~amazing~ gift for someone who loves the outdoors but has limited mobility!

Promising review: “Such an adorable little bird feeder!! It only took the birds two to three days to find the new feeder and trust it. My cats LOVE it and sit and watch the birds for literally hours! They jump up right at the birds, attempt to pounce, and even tap the window with their paws and the birds legit don’t care anymore and continue right on eating. I also have a TON of chipmunks and squirrels in my backyard and none of them have even noticed, cared, or touched it because they can’t reach it. I would recommend this product 100% for anyone that loves nature/bird watching or has cats or kids for sure! Like I stated, fun for the whole family!” —Nikki
