Take a look at some of our top picks from Huckberry for those who love the great outdoors:

The Field Company Cast Iron Skillet – $100

Both oven and fire pit friendly, The Field Company’s cast iron skillet has been carefully designed to take recycled and new iron and cast them into lightweight, super smooth cookware that outperforms the others on the market. The outdoorsman will love this cracking cooking essential because it is light enough for everyday use and the uniquely smooth cooking surface can handle even the most delicate foods with ease including those fried eggs that are a go-to when out in the wilderness. ($100)

Finisterre Nubes Gilet – $89

Perfect for protecting from the elements when out in the wild, the Nubes Gilet uses new Finisterre Engineered Insulation CForm technology which combines the look of down with the performance of recycled polyester. This first class piece of outerwear from Finisterre is cut in a relaxed fit which means it can be worn with winter knits or to add warmth over thinner jackets. Crafted from 100% recycled polyester in both the shell and CForm fill, this cracking Nubes Gilet is finished off with a fluorocarbon-free water repellent finish for the ultimate in adventure apparel. ($89)

Barebones Pulaski Axe – $100

Boasting a 3lb, hand sharpened carbon steel head, this Pulaski Axe from Barebones is a larger tool than you might expect to see from the brand, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t receive the same attention to detail and first class craftsmanship as their smaller outdoor implements. A solid steel core connects the axe head to the pommel for an unparalleled level of strength and robustness, and the dual blades—both an axe blade and a horizontal blade—make it a versatile tool that any outdoorsman worth his salt will want to be using on a daily basis. ($100)
