Portable Power Outlet ($179.99)
I’m sitting in a deer blind at this very moment as I type this article. Just two paragraphs in, and the Low Battery signal pops up on my laptop. Normally that would present a problem, but not today. Today I simply plugged in to the MyCharge Portable Power Outlet unit that I’ve started carrying on extended hunts. It’s a beast of a power supply that will keep you and your gadgets powered up and connected on your hunt, or in camp. It’s pretty much a pocket-sized portable generator. It provides up to 10x extra battery life and features USB ports as well as a built-in AC Power Port.

Peet Boot Dryer ($49.99)
Of all the gifts I’ve received over the years, a boot dryer is certainly at the top of the list, especially when it comes to waking up to warm and dry boots or waders on those nastiest of days throughout the winter months. The Peet boot dryer has been around a long time. It’s safe, simple and still gets the nod when it comes to a great gift idea during the holiday season.

One of the hottest gifts this year will no doubt be the Yeti Rambler in the new vintage camo option. It’s just that cool.
