Navigating in the mountains can be challenging when there is no cell phone reception. So for seasoned mountaineers, a GPS system such as this one by Garmin is a must.

Being in the mountains doesn’t come without risks. So if you are looking for gifts for mountain lovers you care about, you may want to give something to keep them safe. And this survival flask is the perfect gift for that.

Alright, I’ll admit a flask for their favorite spirit is not something that will keep them safe. But it will keep them warm and it will keep their spirits up, which is also worth something.

But what’s actually cool about this flask is that it includes some useful tools for people who love the outdoors, such as a compass, a flashlight, and LED lights with SOS mode.

Oh, and of course a bottle opener and 2 shot glasses, which are useful, but not essential for survival I guess.
