GIFTS FOR THE PRACTICAL PERSON IN YOUR LIFE
Young or old, you really can’t go wrong with a Right Pack backpack as a practical yet stylish gift. A classic for good reason, with its signature suede bottom, this is a style that’s been going strong for years, now upgraded with a side water bottle pocket and padded laptop sleeve. Everything you need for easy, effortless packing, it comes served in an array of colors and prints, so there’s a style to suit all.
GIFTS FOR THE OUTDOORS TYPES
Got any friends or family members who love the great outdoors? Then this is the gift for them. Ideal for both long or short hikes, the Field Pack has it all. Featuring two fully enclosed water bottle pockets, plus rain flap protection, and an organizer compartment to keep things easily within reach, this pack is so versatile, it’s great for everyday use too.
Hiking, rock climbing, skiing, oh my! If it’s a gift for your cousin or bestie who is constantly on a trail or hitting the slopes, they’re going to need something to hold all that gear. That’s where the vibe-y Ski n’ Hike Surplus Backpack comes into play. Made from surplus material, it has sustainability sewn into every inch. Waste not, want not, right? With its large interior and haul handle, it’s just screaming to be taken into the great outdoors for that extra Ski-gear carry space.
GIFTS FOR THE MODERN ADVENTURER
For anyone who loves to be out and about more than they’re at home, the Hatchet Backpack is a best-selling carry-all they’ll love. It combines outdoorsy features—including dual water bottle capacity, with a versatile sleeve that's designed to fit your 15-inch laptop, plus organizer panel, and compression straps for all-out comfort. And it comes in fun colors too.
GIFTS FOR THE ECO-CONSCIOUS
A perfect gift for any eco-conscious loved ones, the Restore Pack is made from RENU® recycled waste fabric, 100% surplus webbing and cording, and 100% recycled polyester labels. Allowing for minimal waste and more adventure, this pack is a keep-forever, durable bag with space for a water bottle, it has an interior padded laptop sleeve, spacious main compartment, and front pocket— it’s basically everything you need for any activity.
GIFTS FOR THE ALWAYS-ACTIVE
If you know someone who is always on the go, consider the Pakalong as the perfect gift. It’s stylish, functional, and can stash all of your essentials without looking bulky. This small pack features an easy access SaniStash hand sanitizer pocket, adjustable waist belt, stash gusseted pockets, and a mask/key hook. And, you can style it so many different ways—around the waist, cross-body, or over one shoulder. What’s not to love?
Not everyone craves the thrill of the trail, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need a helping hand—or bag—when venturing out and about. Maybe it’s grandma who could benefit from the Waisted Fanny Pack for her grocery trips. Help her handle less on the daily with the easy-to-use main compartment and front zipper for wallet storage and an adjustable waist belt so it’s never sitting too snug. Plus, the leather trim will keep her looking stylish in the store.
GIFTS FOR TRAVELING LIGHT
Forget bulky, heavy packs and take things a little lighter and freer with a Half Pint Mini Backpack. Still surprisingly spacious and easy to carry, these mini packs are the perfect alternative to a purse, and is the ultimate throw-on-and-go pack. It comes in so many cute colorways, one is never enough.
GIFTS FOR EVERYONE
If you’re looking for a more universal gift that everyone will find practical, you can’t go wrong with the Essential Carryall. Designed to keep all of your essentials in one place but not too far away, it features back stash pockets and a Velcro flap opening, perfect for your PPE, keys, cards, and cash.
Keep the sun off their face and their phone and keys within reach with this cute-as-heck World Traveler Bucket Hat complete with matching Waistpack for the family member that prides function and accessorization. Both are made from surplus fabric (and love!) and for those who live a little more on the wildside, the Waistpack has a detachable beverage holder for hands-on or hands-free fun. We love dual-function!
