The ultimate Christmas wish list for the outdoorsy person

- December 06, 2022

It’s that time of year again… Whether you want to make sure that whoever is doing the gift shopping for you knows exactly what you want under the proverbial tree or, are due a nice year-end bonus and are looking at lining up a ‘to me from me (because I really deserve it)’ gift, here is a hit list to turn into an instant wish list: ​

Rack Mounted Bottle Opener​

A gadgety bottle opener is bound to put a smile on an outdoor person’s dial. Now, attach that bottle opener to a roof rack, and you have the coolest piece of black powder-coated stainless steel convenience. With Front Runner’s Rack Mounted Bottle Opener there is no need to ever have to remember a bottle opener again and, gone is the hassle of trying to pop-off bottle caps with your keys (or worse!).​

Drawer System​

While we’re talking about making life easier… When it comes to in-car storage, there simply is no better way of organizing gear while still having it easily accessible, than an internal drawer system. Whether in the back of an SUV or the load bay of a pick-up, a Front Runner Drawer System allows you to reach your kit when needed and have it securely locked away when not. Front Runner produces specially designed lockable drawers for a wide range of vehicles, all featuring high-strength bearing slides which allow each drawer to extend nearly 100% from the anchored base. To take your drawer organization system to the next level, add the optional steel Drawer Dividers.​

Dometic CFX3 55l IM (freezer plate)​

A powered cooler is high on every overlander’s list, whether they already own one or not… The revolutionary CFX3 series of powered coolers from Dometic was designed to run on both 12/24VDC and 240VAC and offers a range of fridge/freezer sizes to suit all types of adventure needs. The 55IM is ideal for long-weekend trips and has the unique distinction of being the first camping fridge in the world to offer an ice maker. The single-zone cooler has an independently refrigerated ice-making section (complete with ice trays) that can make ice while running the main compartment as a fridge. Its rugged construction was designed to perform in the harshest overland conditions, and it comes paired with an innovative mobile app for convenient remote control.​

BBQ/Fire Pit & Wolf Pack Pro Kit​

Barbecue any time and (just about) anywhere with the BBQ/Fire Pit. This solid, easy-to-use BBQ/Fire Pit is the answer when it’s not possible, safe, or legal to make fire on the ground. The neat unit sets up in less than 30 seconds and keeps the fire safely off the ground. It doubles as a grill on which to cook or a fire pit for ambiance (and warmth). Constructed from durable 3CR12 stainless steel, it is corrosion resistant, and, once done the grill folds down and fits perfectly within the Wolf Pack Pro for easy transportation.

Typhoon Bag​

This is the duffel bag reimagined… The Front Runner Typhoon Bag is a water- and dust resistant hold-all for everything from diving, cycling, fishing, and camping gear to clothes. This heavy-duty bag easily adapts its size and can accommodate the Front Runner Cub Pack or Flat Pack storage containers for added organization. As a bonus, it was made to be loaded on a roof rack. ​

Dometic PLB 40​

Off-grid power is always a hot topic when it comes to camping and overlanding. A great option for portability and ease of use is the Dometic PLB40 Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate battery. It delivers high levels of mobile power – up to 40 hours – on a single charge and was designed specifically for powering powered coolers and other 12V appliances. It is small and portable but can even be used at home should there be an outage. ​

40” Light Bar​

To keep the adventures going well after dark, a high-quality light bar – such as Front Runner’s 40” LED Light Bar – is a must. This light bar is a highly versatile tool for driving tricky off-road trails (check your local regulations) and for lighting up a campsite. It mounts easily to a Front Runner Roof Rack and features an integrated driver and thermal management system, which regulates the temperature of the 40 LEDs, eliminating the risk of overheating.​
