Valentine's day gift ideas can be unique and unconventional. Perhaps you're a lady trying to lock down the last minute gift for your man. Or, maybe you're a dude looking for a V-Day gift for yourself. No judgment here.
8 Awesome Valentine's Day Gift Ideas For Your Outdoor Man
Valentine's Day is literally right around the corner. Well, I can't sell you any guns, though I'd like to. I don't have my FFL, and don't see myself getting one anytime soon. But, what I can suggest are a host of other cool items that are designed to make the outdoor man's life even easier whenever he's actually enjoying himself in the wilderness. Check out these valentine's day gift ideas for your man's outdoor activities.
This handy little survival tool has a built-in flashlight, firestarter, compass and knife sharpener. It is perfect for anyone who may find themselves stranded in the middle of nowheresville, USA.
As a Marine, I've dug my fair share of fighting holes (as well as other holes designed to hold body waste) with one of these bad boys. I can honestly say that I don't miss that part a bit. But, I can't imagine ever having to dig a hole without one. It folds up nice and small so you can stick it in your pack, costs under $60 and can be used as a weapon if needed. Can't go wrong with this one.
Tactical Hydration Bundle
Plain and simple, your body needs certain things in order to function properly and stay alive. Water is one of those things. This next piece of info is a rough estimate because all bodies are different, but try to remember the “rule of 3s”: Your body will die in 3 weeks without food, 3 days without water, 3 hours in a harsh environment without shelter and 3 minutes without air. Now, I can't breathe for ya, but, you can carry water with you in this pack, and even filter up to 50 gallons of extra H2O with the in-line filter. HIGHLY recommended.
If you've ever had to chop a small tree down with a knife, you'd really appreciate having a hatchet with you the next time you're alone in the woods. Again, it's made by a trusted company and is under $60. Also, I've never met someone willing to get hit with a hatchet, either–so there's also a weapon component.
It's a Gerber Machete. Need I say more?
How would you like to wear a small mechanics tool kit on your wrist? Not something I'd wear on a regular basis, but I'm sure some guys would. Besides, you never know when you might need a screwdriver, Allen wrench or hex-head.
If you're serious about survival and don't have a high-quality knife, you're actually not that serious about survival. It doesn't get much better than Benchmade Knives.
When you're in the wilderness and have no way of getting your food warm, you could be up that proverbial paddle-less creek. It's amazing how something so small could mean the difference between life and death in a survival situation. Every backpack needs to have something like this in it.
