We spoke with Cabela’s hunting, footwear, and camping experts to find out what products they’ll be giving this season. These are 10 of the brand’s favorite holiday gift ideas.
Gerber EVO Serrated Folding Knife
“This is a great, lightweight, everyday-carry knife”, said Kelly Knobbe, E-commerce Operations Manager working in camping, cutlery, and gifts. It has a pocket clip for easy access, and a flip or thumb-stud for quick opening. The blade has both a plain edge and serrations to cover just about any daily task. “It’s a great gift for anyone looking for a quality everyday-carry knife!”
Cabela’s Five-Piece Starter Set
“This set comes with everything you need to start cast-iron cooking,” Knobbe told us. The pieces come pre-seasoned and ready to use. The deep skillet with lid is great for use in the kitchen, and the lid doubles as an additional skillet. This kit will enable you to prepare a wide range of dishes, at home and in the field.
Cabela’s Men’s Medium-Weight Wool Boot Socks
Cabela’s hunting expert (and avid hunter) Jeff Fiscus said these are high-performance socks at a bargain price. “I typically wear a lightweight liner sock beneath these to help wick away perspiration. I recommend these socks to any hunter,” he said.
Cabela’s MT050 Extreme II Handwarmer Muff with Thinsulate
“I prefer a handwarmer muff over gloves,” Ficus said. “I feel it is easier to remove my hands from the muff versus gloves before the shot. The 600-gram Thinsulate insulation is very nice, but add GRABBER handwarmer packs and your hands are warm the entire day.” This muff also has a pocket for small items.
Fleece Beanie and Neck Gaiter
This is Ficus’ favorite cold-weather hunting headwear. When coupled with the neck gaiter, it keeps hunters on the stand for hours. They both feature Cabela’s exclusive Wooltimate fleece as shell fabric, 100-gram Thinsulate insulation, and a Polartec Power Dry grid fleece lining.
SOG Competition Throwing Kit
This exclusive kit from SOG is a perfect way to pass some time at the campsite, said Knobbe. You get five of each of the colored, paracord-wrapped knives so that you know whose knife is closest to the bullseye. Five targets are included in the kit for an afternoon of fun.
Streamlight Stylus Pro LED Penlight
This compact light is great for almost any task. It puts out 90 lumens and can run for more than six hours on only two AAA batteries. Not to mention that it is IPX4 rated for water resistance! Great to keep in your purse or vehicle, this light is a great gift for just about anyone.
Cabela’s Polar Cap Equalizer Coolers
Ice retention, durability, and a lifetime guarantee: You cannot go wrong with this cooler. Ficus said it’s “perfect for use when camping to keep food and drinks cold, and the built-in bottle openers never leave you searching for one.” It also performs exceptionally when transporting your catch from your favorite fishing hole, stream, or your harvest from the field.
Cabela’s Outfitter XL Cot with Pivot Arm
A built-in pivot arm delivers the leverage needed to make setup a breeze. Reinforced legs combine with tough 600-denier nylon fabric for season after season of lasting performance.
Cabela’s Rubber Boots
Ficus uses the Cabela’s Instinct Men’s Reliant Whitetail for comfort in cold climates. “It has great arch support, doesn’t slip on my heels, and is very warm,” he said. The 1,200-gram PrimaLoft insulation delivers warmth without the bulk.
