100 Gifts for the Adventurer

From Backup Phone Accessories to Rechargable Knapsacks

— December 24, 2015 — Lifestyle
Whether or not you'll be seeing your nomadic friend or family member for Christmas this year, these gifts for the adventurer are sure to encourage them to continue to seek new experiences either close to home or around the globe.

While it's great to travel as light as possible, there's some great gear like watches, shoes and backpacks that are equipped with technology to make the journey more clear. This includes GPS technology, solar power, as well as gear that will be able to withstand a range of activities, no matter what kind of strain it's put through. One of the most standout products is the Talkase, a backup phone accessory that could be a lifesaver in times of emergency.
