Have Yourself A Merry Adventurous Christmas

Disclosure: I received the items below in exchange for being part of this post. All opinions are my own.

 Second to getting to see new places and encountering unique experiences, one of the best parts of going on outdoor adventures is getting to use all of the gear! Over the past year I've gotten to try out some the best in outdoor and active gear. December is the best time to start that bucket list of all the adventures you want to take in the upcoming new year. And Christmas is the best time to give those outdoor lovers everything they need to take on all their upcoming, exciting adventures. I've got just the list to make shopping for your thrill seeker to easiest it's ever been!

Green Guru Gear

An outdoor Round-Up just wouldn't be right if I didn't start off with a company that has made all the crazy trips that I've talked myself, and my friends, into taking possible. I get to review quite a lot of products over the years. I'll forever be singing the praises of Green Guru Gear. Everything I have used has been top notch quality and I have no doubt that all of my Green Guru products will last for years to come. If you find gifts under your tree on Christmas morning with the Green Guru Gear logo on it, just know you've hit the jackpot!

There's nothing I love more than bare feet! But since society generally frowns upon going everywhere sans socks and shoes, I fear flip flops just about everywhere. Sometimes though, terrain like wet rocks and rocky mountain trails make flip flops a generally silly and sometimes dangerous idea. Lucky for me and my tootsies, I found FlipRocks!


FlipRocks flip flops have been created with a unique patented gripping system to traverse a number of different applications. Each GripToeNite gripping unit can be attached to the FlipRocks flip flop creating different extreme traction applications. 

With the purchase of your FlipRocks flip flops, you can collect all three GripToeNite grips specifically designed for fishing, hiking and kayaking. Coupled with a molded toe guard and our unique four wheel drive strap system you’re ready to hit the trails or the water with confidence. GripToeNite Gripping System: specially formulated Injection-molded removable grips that are designed specifically for each respective application to maximize traction, stability and comfort.


The base of this extreme grip is specially formulated rubber composites to maximize traction in aquatic environments. As if that weren’t enough to get you down to the river we’ve added spikes to make sure that your footing is firmly planted even when your traversing slime-covered rocks in a raging river in pursuit of steelhead, trout, salmon or whatever your angling passion.


FlipRocks Marine Sportsman Griptoenite gripping pads are the perfect match for the extreme angler, kayaker or beach comber. Not as aggressive as the Water Trekker spiked Griptoenite gripping pads. These pads feature a felt sole for keeping your balance and stability when crossing algae covered rocks on the river or a rugged coastline. Take them boating for a non-marring sure grip on the top-deck.


The Timberline Griptoenite gripping pads are for the adventurer that wants to move on or off the trail in search of the next awesome trek. Give your footing the grip and reliability of a hiking boot with the freedom and breathability of a flipflop. All while your tootsies are protected with the FlipRocks patented flipflop toe guard and your feet are securely snug using the super comfortable Extreme Drive off-road  elastic band. Extreme flipflops for awesome people doing extreme activities.

On my bike, Topeak has become a lifesaver!  This past Fall some friends and I set off on a Fall bike ride and needless to say, our Aero Lights came in quite handy. Long story story, we started out trip much later than we intended (thanks to some car trouble and bike trouble) and ended up biking for a good while in the pitch black till we found a place to camp. I was amazed at how much light our Aero's gave off and having the rear lights helped us all stay together. Even if I'm not planning an evening ride, I'll always have these with me, you never know when you might need them!

I've not been able to try out too many of Elite's products, but what I have tried, I continue to use!

Infinity Seat

There's no pain like the pain of a biker who's been riding for more than 25 miles, especially when that biker hasn't been on their ride in quite some time. If there is one thing that will stop you from making it to the end of a biking adventure, no doubt about it, it will be butt pain! It's also a pain that can keep on giving days after you've finished the ride and could keep you from sticking with it. After my first ride I searched the internet high and low till I came across Infinity Seat. I think you'll see why gifting one of these seats will make your favorite rider thanking you for years to come!


The revolutionary Infinity Seat not only protects your sensitive perineum/pubic-bone area, but completely relieves sit-bone pressure as well. Rather than smashing those areas like a conventional bike seat does, the Infinity Seat moves the anatomical contact outward—to areas that are less sensitive to compression, and more capable of “providing their own padding”. The result is a much more comfortable ride with far less chance of developing saddle sores, genital numbness, impotence or even sterility. Here’s how it works: The revolutionary Infinity Seat design relieves 100% of the pressure on your sit bones and pubic bone, making this a saddle like no other. All points of contact are with areas of your anatomy that “provide their own padding”.

L1X Series Seat

  • The L1X-Series weighs 265 grams, and has a “hammock” feel with the ability to sit in the pocket.
  • It allows the rider to feel the fluidity of their body, and the road with every pedal stroke.
  • The cyclists weight is distributed over the entire seat when either in an upright position or if they have limited Spinal Pelvic Range of Motion.
  • An ideal choice for the Road Cyclists, MTBer, Weekend Warrior and Beach Cruisers.
  • It features our signature full-cutout design covered with a neoprene closed cell foam.
  • Each seat is individually, customized and hand-wrapped in genuine Italian leather.

  L2 Series Seat

  • The L-Pro Series weighs 215 grams and covers a wide range of cyclists from the Cat 4 to Cat 1.
  • The L-Pro has the added comfort of the L2, while allowing the responsiveness of the N-series.
  • An ideal choice for Triathletes, Road, Tandem and Ultra Cyclists.
  • It provides relief for any type of pelvic inflammation – male or female.
  • It features our signature full-cutout design and is hand-stitched by our leather artisan.
