Holiday gear guide to the rescue: SMN serves up goods bets for the outdoors person on your shopping list

Written by 

out frFor outdoors enthusiasts, Christmas brings but fleeting respite from the cold, dark days of winter — with the promise of spring hikes still many months off.

If it’s impossible to bring them to their favorite trailhead or mountain top, the next best thing is to bring the gadgets of the great outdoors to them.

 

The Smoky Mountain News has partnered with four outdoor shops in the region — Mast General Store in Waynesville, Outdoor 76 in Franklin, Blackrock in Sylva and Nantahala Outdoor Center in Wesser — to compile our annual outdoor gear shopping list.

It was made with the true enthusiast in mind, but the gift ideas can prove highly effective in the present pile of any tree-loving or river-conscious relative.

Great gift ideas from:

Mast General Store, Waynesville

Outdoor 76, Franklin

Nantahala Outdoor Center, Wesser

Blackrock Outdoor Company, Sylva
