Well, if you have a friend or family member who is an outdoor enthusiast, then we got you covered. We have created the best list of gifts that every outdoor enthusiast will love! We either have or have tried all of these products, so we are sure they won't disappoint!

This folding kayak is the perfect gift for that person in your life who loves being on the water. We love this kayak because it is foldable! The 10ft kayak can be easily folded and placed in the trunk of your car, in your RV, or in a small closet. It's made from a revolutionary polymer developed by the US Aerospace industry for its impact resistance, and unique ability to "bend & fold" over 1000's of cycles without failure.

It's made with 1/8 inch, thick HDPE that will not rip, tear, or puncture. There are also no open folds below the top level of the kayak, all of which make it unsinkable! It also exceeds US Coast Guard Manufacturing & Safety requirements.
