The holidays have a way of sneaking up on us every year, and for those of us who would rather be playing outside, there comes a time when we realize we should probably get some Christmas shopping done for the other outdoor enthusiast in our lives. Here are some last minute holiday gift ideas for the ones who love the outdoors as much as you do.

For the mountain biker in your life, the Osprey Raptor 10 is an excellent mountain biking pack. It stays nice and snug to your back while on technical terrain thanks to the BioStretch™ harness and hipbelt which provides an active and contouring fit as well as ventilation.

The Osprey Raptor retails at $130.00.

The JBL Clip 2 is completely waterproof, provides eight hours of playtime, and streams music wirelessly via Bluetooth. The speaker has a carabiner that you can clip to your clothes or your backpack to take on your adventures (please be mindful of others in the outdoors with how loud your music is), and the sound is definitely not shabby as it is quite crisp and clear.
