You know the gear we want. But one of our favorite parts of this time of year is asking you, our readers, what you want for the holidays. We polled our readers for their wish list items, and usual, you did not disappoint. It was nearly impossible to narrow this list down to ten picks, but here they are (and here’s to hoping you get what you asked for).
TOPS Mini Scandi Knife (Rockies Edition)
This razor sharp, Scandi ground neck knife from TOPS comes with a gorgeous tumble finish to its 3″ blade and an ambidextrous Kydex sheath (great if you’re a southpaw like me) making it the perfect companion in the shop or on the trail.

Fill it with deer meat on hunts.

Tesla Model 3 Down Payment
Need a new car. Also want it to be an environmentally friendly car

Mystery Ranch 3-Day Assault Pack
My old pack is wearing out and it would be nice to have a pack that can be used for EDC, Backcountry overnight, Travel, and whatever else life throws at me. Coupled with a military SOF pedigree and legendary build quality it’s a perfect do it all pack. Multicam might be a bit too “tacticool” but foliage seems just right.

Willett Family Estate Single Barrel Bourbon – Barrel #1404
Because this barrel selected by Sean Brock and Bill Murray is one of the best whiskeys I’ve ever tasted. It’s only available by the ounce at Husk restaurant…and most likely Bill Murray’s house if you happen to get an invite…
— Asa H.
Burton Mini Scraper Stomp Pad
Because falling down in front of the ski lodge is embarrassing.
— Andrew E.
ZIPP 303 Carbon Wheels
By far the best wheels I’ve ever ridden, but I’m not yet ready to sell my soul to the Devil for a pair.
— Nick F.
Want to start destroying books in 2018.
— Matt K.
La Sportiva TarantuLace Rock Climbing Shoes
So I can climb more after I wore out my old ones.
— Sinjin S.
ThermoWorks Thermapen Mk4
Because life is too short to eat over cooked steak.
