ROVA Electric Cooler and Charging Station

Pop quiz, hotshot: there are twelve burgers and as many hot dogs steadily getting warmer in your styrofoam cooler. How long do you have until they both become inedible? 😓

Trick question; you planned ahead and snagged a ROVA cooler, keeping those meaty morsels cool for over a week. Crisis averted, Keanu.

Dirt Fish Rally School

Deep down, it's an irrefutable fact that everybody secretly wants to be a getaway driver. That's just hard science. 🔬

Treat your pal to the next best thing by signing them up for one of the world's best rally schools. They'll learn how to toss a car into a Scandinavian flick, execute a clutch-kick, and anything else it takes to outrun Boss Hogg and Roscoe. Them buds are at it again!

Buck 110 Hunter Knife

As classicly American as Babe Ruth eating a Baby Ruth, the Buck knife has been slicing up camping staples from jerky to sticks for over 60 years. Forged from rugged 420HC steel and wrapped in a wealth of brass and ebony, your bud will thank you for gifting them the only thing that could still be handsome after a three-day trip in the woods. 🏕

Dalbello Panterra 120 ID Ski Boots

Italian ski boot impresarios Dalbello are a bit rakish to be associated with 'the cowboys from hell, but damn if they don't make a boot worthy of a heavy metal moniker.

Stiffer than Arnold's bicep 💪 and snugger than a boot full of Nickelodeon slime, the Panterra 120 also features a switchable ski vs. walk mode, toeing the line between performance and comfort. Get to the powdah! 🎿

WhiSki Poles with Built in Flask

Look, we're not saying you should drink on the slopes. We definitely ARE saying your bud will love you for thinking ahead as you walk back to the lodge, ready to imbibe, come ski-bunny o' clock.

Keep these aircraft-grade aluminum powder-sticks brimming with your libation of choice for a swift post-ski reward. 🍸

GoTenna Mesh

How do you find your bud when you're deep in the Amazonian rainforest, separated by five klicks of untamed jungle and big cats?

Like a modern Walkie Talkie, the new GoTenna Mesh lets you stay connected in the wild and send texts and GPS coordinates up to 4 miles away without a cell network. Survive, together!

Mountain Backpacker Medical Kit

Avoid a Revenant-style death 🐻 and protect your bud from whatever challenges Mother Nature throws their way. Adventure Medical Kits are to first aid as Ossetra caviar are to fish eggs, and the Mountain Backpacker edition has everything you and a friend need to survive a four-day foray in the wilderness. Safety first!

The Best Custom Tandem Bike

Take the streets by storm in the Ferrari La Ferrari of tandem bikes 🚲🚲. Demonstrate the strength of your friendship on a cross country tandem ride that takes you from sea to shining sea. Adventure is calling, will you answer?

Husqvarna 13" Wooden Hatchet

It's no secret that we love Husqvarna at Best Buds, due to their high-quality Swedish steel and hickory handles. They're also handsome as hell. Next time you go camping, give your bud the gift of fresh chopped wood and a hatchet that'll last a lifetime. 🌲

Ural Tandem Motorcycle

Why can't we live in a reality where everyone saw The Last Crusade in the 80s and decided we should transition as a people over to sidecar-only transportation? Is there anything more rad than chopper goggles?

Be the change you want to see in the world. Pick up your buddy in the Ural, but don't be surprised if they start chiding you, Indiana. 🤠

Kelty Grand Mesa Tent

You're 4 hours into a placid hike with your bud when it hits you: neither of you wants to leave the majestic beauty of the great outdoors for another 24-hours. Fear of the office grips your heart, but you came prepared.

You whip out this rugged and compact tent from Kelty, assembling it in minutes. The only thing left to worry about is the 😴 layout: head-to-head or head-to-toe? 🤔
