The GoPro Hero5 Session can record in 4K and might be a great gift if your husband is into action sports.
If your husband enjoys hiking in America then this book should be in his library. America’s best hiking trails has won several awards.
Rab has excellent down jackets. If your husband still needs a winter jacket then you should have a look at the Rab Position jacket which has been designed for mountain and expedition use up to 6000m. It weights around 700 grams and has a fill power of 800.
The MSR WindBurner is probably one of the best gas stove which can handle wind. We have received it from MSR as a test unit and it worked quite well e.g. in the Swedish Mountains.
A small gift but great gift is the Fjällräven Zip Card Holder. The fabric is made of G-1000 - the same matrial used by Swedish Fjällräven for their pants and jackets.
With the Petzl Nao Plus you are able to see 140 m into the distance. It’s features reactive lightning - meaning that it adjusts the light level automatically. The Petzl Nao Belt Kit, comes quite handy if your husband plans to use the headlamp in very cold conditions as it helps to prevents battery drain if worn nearby the body. It is water resistant (IP X4) and weights 187 grams.
The MSR Lightning Ascent snowshoes are very light snowshoes. We have received them from MSR for testing and didn’t have anything to complain about them. Also a pair of snowshoeing poles like the MSR Deploy T-3 might be a good addition to the snowshoes.
If your husband needs a warm sleeping pad then the The Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XTherm which we received from MSR as well for testing might be a good choice. It weights around 400 grams and is one of the warmest regular sleeping pads which we use throughout the year.
The Garmin InReach Explorer+ is probably one of the best gifts you can buy if your husband is hiking in remote areas where there is no phone signal. It also has a digital compass, route planning features, trip statistics, altimeter, track logging and weights 190 grams.
An excellent skiing glove is the Hestra Army Leather Heli 3-Finger Glove which comes with a removeable liner.
There is no need to carry big water bottles on a hiking trip if you have a Sawyer Water Filter in your backpack. It’s also much easier to get clean water from a river than using a water filter with a pump.
The Suunto Spartan Sport is the latest GPS watch from Suunto which comes with a color touch screen. It has a much longer battery life than the e.g. Apple Watch Series 2. The data can be synced and stored online with Movescount.
