Outdoors people do not have standard stocking fillers. Lives spent braving the elements pursuing the simple,visceral beauty of hard-earned sunrises and days won through embracing toil and craft tend to have different requirements than the usual box of chocolates or pair of novelty socks.
What we look for in our stockings are practical items that, although small, have a functional theme. They allow us to achieve our goals easier or enjoy the fruits of our labours more keenly.
Not everyone's requirements will be the same, but here are some good ideas to show someone in your life that you believe in their dreams:
Montane Nalgene 1L Bottle:
A reusable, lightweight and durable plastic bottle, designed using tough Tritan plastic and is BPA, BPS and phthalate free
Montane VIA Trail Ankle Gaiters:
A close fitting ankle gaiter for trail and mountain runners alike, designed to sit closely around an ankle and trail shoes to protect from trail scree and debris getting into your shoe.
Montane Iridium Beanie:
A versatile, warm, helmet compatible technical stretch fleece beanie with ceramic print to increase durability.
Montane VIA Trail Gloves:
Our VIA Trail Gloves are windproof, wicking and breathable. The outer hand fabric is also waterproof, creating a lightweight and versatile glove for the discerning trail runner.
Montane Women's Iridium Gloves:
A women's specific versatile, warm, technical glove with ceramic printed stretch-fleece and durable leather overlay on hard-wearing points.
