Gifts For Hikers

There's a LOT of kit involved with going hiking, especially in winter. It takes most of us a few years to fill in all the gaps in our gear, whether it's a really decent pair of waterproof trousers, that perfect Goldilocks-zone mid layer or just the basic equipment we need to stay safe on the hill when the days are so short. We've picked out some of our favourite gifts for hikers, just don't forget to catch the last Alpkitmas post!
