If you have an overlanding or off-roading enthusiast on your holiday shopping list, we’ve got some excellent ideas for you.
This 2021 holiday gift guide is chock-full of awesome ideas, each of which will set you back $250 or less.
From tactical flashlights to knives, multi-tools to lights for their vehicle, the selection outlined below is as varied as it is long.
Let’s get to it!
SureFire Fury Intellibeam Tactical Flashlight
Having a good flashlight is a must for overlanding and off-roading adventures, which is why the SureFire Fury Intellibeam Tactical Flashlight is first on our 2021 holiday gift guide.
With up to 1,500 lumens, this flashlight puts out an incredible amount of light. But the cool thing is that it has a sensor that can detect the size of the space you’re in – if it’s a small space, the flashlight will lower its light output as all that additional light isn’t needed. This helps save battery power and gives you longer-lasting performance.
Speaking of power and performance, this flashlight is operable with either two 123A lithium batteries or just one 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable battery. All told, you can run the light for up to 40 hours.
With a high-strength aluminum body and tailcap, this flashlight is ultra-durable, too. It’s perfect for overlanding or off-roading!
2021 Holiday Gift Guide: Leatherman Skeletool CX Multi-Tool
This made-in-the-USA tool is the ideal gift for loved ones that spend time outdoors and on remote trails.
It has needlenose and regular pliers, wire cutters, a knife, a bottle opener, and a bit driver. Better still, any of these tools can be opened one-handed!
True to form, this Leatherman is compact, lightweight, and can be easily carried in a pocket. It comes with a 25-year limited warranty, too, so it’s a gift that you can have confidence in for literally decades to come.
Plus, at about $80, it’s well below the $250 threshold!
We’ve all been there…
You’re off-grid, overlanding, and nature calls. The problem is that you can’t wait to get to camp or civilization to answer the call. So, what do you do?
Easy…you bring a portable toilet along with you!
InstaPrivy is quite simply the most portable restroom you’ll find. At just seven pounds, this all-in-one toilet kit is the ideal holiday gift for someone that spends a lot of time outdoors.
Setup is simple, too.
Just unfold the toilet chair, lift the lid, and place the waste bag over the chair. Then close the lid, deploy the privacy tent, and you’re good to go!
Truly, in a matter of seconds this thing gives you all the privacy you need to do what needs to be done.
The kit includes the toilet chair, waste bags, and privacy tent I mentioned a moment ago, along with a shovel, toilet paper, seat covers, and hand sanitizer. All of these goodies come in a convenient backpack for ease of carrying.
It can be difficult to find the perfect gift for someone. Sometimes you misfire. Sometimes the gift you give never gets used. But with InstaPrivy, you can give a useful gift that people will appreciate over and over again!
KC HiLites 6″ Daylighter Halogen Pair Pack System
When you think of overlanding and off-roading gear, one of the first things your mind conjures up is probably KC HiLites.
These lights are the industry standard for a reason, so they make the perfect addition to our 2021 holiday gift guide – and to your loved one’s stocking!
These particular lights include 100-watt halogen bulbs that come with a spot or a spread beam pattern. You get 2,452 lumens and a beam distance of 1,058 meters when using the spot pattern and 885 meters when using the spread beam pattern.
As is typical for KC HiLites, these lights are well-made, highly durable, and easy to install, too!
2021 Holiday Gift Guide: Wouxun KG-905G GMRS Two Way Radio
If you want to give a gift that gives you a lot of bang for your buck, this Wouxun KG-905G GMRS Two Way Radio is it…
This radio transmits on 15 high-powered GMFS simplex channels as well as eight low-powered simplex channels and all eight GMRS repeater channels. There is no need to program the radio – it is ready to go out of the box – and it offers up to five watts of power for staying in contact with others on the trail.
Your loved one can customize up to 256 channels in 16 custom channel groups. Additionally, there are 157 CTCSS tones and DCS codes that eliminate interference. There’s split tones, tone scan, a timeout timer, VOX, and plenty of other features as well!
TETON Sports Fahrenheit Mammoth Queen-Size Double Sleeping Bag
I actually have a different TETON Sports sleeping bag, but I like it so much that I wanted to recommend this larger bag as a 2021 holiday gift guide idea for someone that wants a bigger bag or doesn’t mind sharing it with a significant other.
This queen-sized bag is 94×62 inches, so there’s plenty of room to double up or to accommodate one of your kids that wants to hunker down with you for the night.
It has a soft cotton flannel lining that keeps you warm, and with zips on each side and the bottom of the bag, it’s a breeze to get in and out of.
These bags are simply well-made, warm, soft, and easy to store in their compression sacks. Sounds to me like a perfect gift idea for the overlander or off-roader on your list!
2021 Holiday Gift Guide: Overland Gear Guy GPC Tool Bag
Having plenty of tools is a requirement of overlanding and off-roading, and so too is keeping your tools organized. This tool bag allows you to bring all the tools you need while keeping them neat and tidy.
The bag has a reinforced bottom for carrying heavy items and heavy-duty zippers to ensure those items stay inside the bag.
The tool bag has dual end slip pockets, a large zippered top slip pocket, and four customizable pouches, too. At 15 x 12 x 8″, this tool bag and its four pouches are perfectly sized to fit in an overlanding or off-roading rig without getting in the way.
The North Face Base Camp Medium Duffel
This nylon duffel bag is a great addition to someone’s overlanding or off-roading kit because it gives you the ability to carry a ton of gear quickly and conveniently.Use the end cap compartment for dirty clothes or shoes, the mesh sleeve pocket for small items like car keys, and trust that all the gear inside will be dry thanks to the water-resistant exterior.
Carry the bag in comfort with padded side handles or use the incorporated backpack shoulder straps, and use the four compression straps to keep the gear inside safe and secure. Everyone needs a good bag – and this one certainly fits the bill!
2021 Holiday Gift Guide: Southwest Disk 24″ Moab Rim
When your loved one is overlanding or off-roading, they’ve got to eat…
And one of the best ways to cook up some great food is in a discada like the 24″ Moab Rim from Southwest Disk.
This disk gives you all the space that’s needed to cook up a great meal, and with the 1″ formed rim around it, the food will stay where it needs to be – on the disk!
These disks are ready to use out of the box because they are fully prepped and cleaned prior to shipment. The disk also has its first firing before it is shipped.
The disk has a smooth, rounded bottom, a concave grilling surface, and handcrafted handles that make it easy to maneuver as well.
If the person you’re shopping for loves to cook, this is a great gift idea!
Tops Knives Silent Hero
Tops Knives makes really good knives, so the Silent Hero is a great option for a discerning family member or friend.
This knife is beautifully designed, impeccably built, and hugely versatile. Add durable to the list as well!
It weighs just 12 ounces, so it’s easy to carry and to use. And with a lanyard hole in the handle and another in the finger guard, there are multiple options for carrying the knife.
The blade itself is large enough to chop, but also small enough for daily tasks on the trail. The black leather sheath that comes with it is a nice feature, too.
Maxsa Innovations Escaper Buddy Traction Mats
Overlanding and off-roading aren’t about whether you’ll get stuck, but when. And when that happens, you want your loved one to have good traction mats to help them get out.
These mats from Maxsa Innovations are heavy-duty, 48″ long, 14.5″ wide tracks that help prevent tire spin in mud, sand, snow, and ice.
The durable construction means overlanders and off-roaders will get years of service, too.
They’re lightweight, easy to store, and could mean the difference between getting unstuck or remaining stuck!
