Presents for Hikers, Walkers and Peak Baggers

If you have a Peak Bagger in your life they will appreciate presents across a range of gear and goodies associated with their climbing, hiking and walking adventures. Here are some top presents produced in the UK. 

Apres Hiking – You may like to visit The Adventurers Drinks Company who offer a range of drinks including Peak Baggers Gin and Peak Baggers Pale Ale (Release date April 2024) inspired by Claire Hughes  helping the hikers and walkers out there celebrate at the end of their journey.

Guidebooks: Guidebooks of popular hiking areas can help your Peak Bagger plan their adventures and discover new trails. There are literately mountains of book out there and you can’t go wrong with something like Wainwrights Walking Guide but for something new have a look at Athena Mellor who is on her Ramble Guidebook journey with two books in the bag, one on the Peak District and the other on the Lake District, and a third in work in progress, covering the Cairngorms.

Backpack: A comfortable and durable backpack is essential for carrying gear on long hikes. Look for one with enough capacity for all their essentials and features like adjustable straps and ventilation. Hidden away on a farm just outside of Keswick you will find Atom Packs busily making lightweight custom backpacks for your next adventure.

Outdoor Clothing: High-quality outdoor clothing, including moisture-wicking shirts, insulating layers, and waterproof jackets, can keep your peak bagger comfortable in a variety of conditions. There are a number of trekking and mountaineering jackets made in the UK including those by Buffalo Systems based in Sheffield, Hilltrek in Royal Deeside and PHD in Harrogate.

Hiking Boots: A good pair of hiking boots is essential for any Peak Bagger. Look for ones that are durable, waterproof, provide excellent traction and are comfortable. There are many on the market but for that special present you may like boots designed and manufactured in the UK. If so, why not try Atlberg based in Richmond, Yorkshire.

Trekking Poles: Trekking poles can help reduce strain on the knees and provide stability on challenging terrain. For UK manufactured poles try Mountain King based in Newcastle.

GPS Watch or Navigation Device: A GPS watch or navigation device can help your peak bagger stay on track and navigate safely, especially in remote or unfamiliar areas. There are so many to choose from over a wide price range. You may like to ask your Peak Bagger their preference before buying. 

Headlamp: A reliable headlamp is essential for early morning starts or hiking after dark. British brand Alpkit is a good call making 30 percent of their products in the UK.

Water Filtration System: Keeping hydrated is crucial on long hikes, so a portable water filtration system allows your Peak Bagger to safely refill their water bottles from streams and lakes along the way. Pure Clear is a UK business that has developed a range filter water bottles tested to NSF and ANSI standards.

First Aid Kit: A compact first aid kit tailored for hiking and outdoor activities can be a lifesaver in case of minor injuries or emergencies. One developer of first aid kits for the outdoors is Life Systems who developed the UK’s first travel specific first aid kit in 1989.

Always remember to consider the specific needs and preferences of your Peak Bagger when selecting a gift, and they'll appreciate your thoughtful gesture.
