Holiday Gear Guide 2012: $25 and Under

You may be a dirtbag, but your gifts don't have to show it

Gift-giving sure can be hard on the wallet, especially when it's already empty (dirtbag climbers and ski bums, we're looking at you) or taxed by the slow, steady build out of your "Garage Mahal" of gear. Fear not, though. We have a few ideas for you that won't break the bank. Ranging from DIYers like energy bars and a (FREE!) paracord survival bracelet to necessities like a funny t-shirt about doping and a backcountry wine pouch, our first installment has something for everyone on your list. And, what's better, you might even have enough cash left over to buy your pals a round of aprés-ski spiked nog. Cheers to that!
