Hiking in Finland

Climbing, bikepacking, skiing & packrafting in the north

Advent Calendar - Door 23



Dear Santa,

I think I'm almost set for this year's holiday gift-giving marathon. However, looking over my wishlist, I found that it was lacking in form of an aesthetic cup to drink from when outdoors (or re-enacting this outdoor drinking feeling when indoors at the office). Then my attention was brought to Kupilka who make the wonderful Kupilka 21 kuksa. Being part wood, part plastic they are easy to clean, light, and just what I was looking for design-wise in an aesthetic cup! If you still have place in that big sack of yours (I hope it has an extension collar!) then I would love to find one under tree this year.

Dear Santa,

with all the climbing gear I got from you, I have one final wish: A nice looking Tendon T-Shirt to go climbing and bouldering in. I do sweat a fair deal, and a dedicated climbing T-Shirt would make the laundry making a lot easier while also being easier to get ready when heading out to the climbing gym or rocks - all my other T-Shirts being black it will be easy to identify the climbing shirt =)

Best,

Dear Santa,

cuben is so 2011 among ultralight backpackers - XPac is the new craze. Damn it is pretty, let me tell you - you should see what LAUFBURSCHE makes out of it! The hipbelt pockets he makes are wonderful - available in one or two liter volume, with waterproof zippers, possible to attach either right or left on you backpack's hipbelt. Or you can wear it as a little bag around your shoulder, if you're so inclined. I'd love one of them to pimp my current backpack, and would carry my camera and some snacks in it. The white colour of it is also very wintery, and makes me think of future snow adventures!

Best,
