For the Adventurer

From the ultimate duffel to all-purpose travel pants, these gifts will please the outdoor adventurer and adrenaline junkie on your list.

  • Aether Apparel Jackets - Men's and Women's: "Sleek and stylish, the Nordic jacket is also supremely functional. I wore it hiking Kilimanjaro!" ~ Indagare Marketing Director Diana Li
  • Paskho Travel Pants
  • Rains duffel:"Waterproof and chic, this bag works well for an adventurous trip like a safari but also functions as an extra bag for destinations where you're going to shop a lot (like Marrakech and India)." ~ Indagare Customer Experience Manager Marley Blandori
