Gifts for the Girly Trailblazer

Congratulations to commenter number 4, Mel, who is the winner of the $25 REI gift card!!  Thanks everyone for playing along. Happy Holidays!


There are few places I’d rather be than in the woods on a quiet, muddy trail. Whether I’m hiking or taking a run, it’s the one place where I can clear my mind while feeding my body and soul. So if you are like me (or you’ve got a girl like me in your life) this post is for you. I thought I’d share some of my favorite trail gear with all of you lovely readers.  With the holiday season upon us, maybe you’ll be inspired with some gift ideas for the outdoorsy girl in your life.


1. At the top we have the quick dry  Toaster Top and Liberty Pants from Stonewear Designs. Warning: these pieces of clothing are so awesome, functional and comfortable you will never want to take them off!  Stonewear Designs is a Colorado-based company comprised of a group of determined women who lead busy lives balancing time between family, friends, work, and play. They developed clothes that make women feel beautiful while performing under strenuous demands. They strive to fit and flatter every type of body with beautiful, durable clothing that will last for years. All Stonewear clothing is Made in the U.S.A.

2. Gypsum Mid Hiking Boots by KEEN.  The only brand of boots I wear on the trail! For years, KEEN has been keeping my feet happy and safe on the trail. ‘Nuff said.

3. SpeedCross 3 Trail Running shoes by Salomon.  I am in love with these awesome, lightweight but aggressive trail shoes that are perfect for muddy, mountainous terrain. I use these all the time and they are by far my faves!

4. I don’t own one of these battery-operated mobile power devices yet, but I really want to try one! They seem like a perfect gadget to have handy on a long hike or backpacking trip.  Especially if you are like me and snap photos on the trail with your iphone.

And since it’s the season to spread the love, I’m going to do another giveaway today. I’m going to give one lucky reader a $25 gift card to REI.  Oh yes I am!  All you have to do is…

1. Leave a comment telling me your favorite outdoor activity and whether or not you’d be happy to receive any of these gifts above.

2. For one extra entry, go like my facebook page.  Come back here and leave another comment telling me you did so (or tell me if you already are a fan.)

3. For one more entry, tweet about the giveaway, including a link to this post and make sure to mention me, @hikemama. Then come back here and leave a comment telling me you tweeted.

  1. Id love the SpeedCross 3 Trail Running shoes by Salomon, for all of those trail running days! I love trail running, and hiking in general. Totally already have the hiking boots, i agree wholeheartedly about the Keens! Love mine to death! thanks for the giveaway!

  2. My favorite outdoor activity is running, trail running when possible! I would gladly accept any of those gifts with a huge smile, but I adore the Toaster Top the most. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  3. Great giveaway!! You are too awesome! I am all about the Keen boots! Keen is the only outdoor footwear I use! With my current pair 5 years old it’s about time for an upgrade!! I am tweeting your sweet link right now! Glad to connect other awesome outdoor mamas!!
    Loves, Sarah @ibikeubike 🙂

  4. Went on awesome hike today in Catalina Mountains near Tucson, AZ, would love to run it next time in the trail running shoes from the gift guide.

  5. My fav outdoor activity is definitely hiking with my toddler! Showing her the beauty of mother nature! 🙂 I’m already a fan of your facebook page (that’s how I heard about this) and those pants are amazing! I also tweeted you!

  6. I would love any of the featured products but I’d especially love the Salomon trail shoes. I love to trail run as often as possible but I also enjoy hiking and geocaching with my family. The mobile power device would come in handy as well since I’m an avid instagramer 😉

  7. We love to camp and hike/explore. I’ve been walking the dogs every day too. I’d love to win any of the items above. Thank you for the review and the giveaway.

  8. New to world and community of hiking but love hiking in northern Michigan. Going on first hike with Indianapolis Hiking Meetup on Tuesday. 5-7 miles. Have no idea what to put on my feet or wear but I want to learn. Trying to get my groove back while grieving the loss of my dear Corgi, Cookie, two months ago. I need some adventure and time away from the office. Will like on FB and tweet.
