The holiday season is the best time to help your loved ones elevate their style with gifts they’ll utilize for their favorite outdoor activities. Fortunately, REI Co-op has the key brands and pieces that will inspire close friends and family to spend more time in nature — gifts that definitely keep on giving. With selections from brands like Patagonia, The North Face, Salomon and more, The REI Gift Center is sure to impress the Gorpcore, running and snowsport fans in your life.

Gorpcore has emerged as one of the biggest niche trends in streetwear with fans incorporating camping, hiking and even mountain climbing gear into their everyday wardrobe. Wearing head-to-toe Arc’teryx or Patagonia whether on the streets or the mountains is a prime example of this phenomenon. Additionally, runners are taking to the tracks, streets and trails with more technical clothing and performance-led sneakers. This is where the worlds of lifestyle and activewear collide, creating looks that are extremely versatile. Lastly, snowsports such as skiing and snowboarding will always have a growing fan base, and hobbyists young and old are looking to more functional products that boast exceptional style and provide optimum protection from the cold.

If there are Gorpcore, running and snowsport fans on your shopping list this season, head to REI’s Gift Center for choice options that’ll keep them looking and performing at their best in the outdoors.
