2022 RUX Gift Guide

2022 RUX Gift Guide

Posted by Chris Fleugel on

Tis’ the season to think of friends and family in need of some rad new gear. Or yourself. Gotta treat yourself too. This is some of the gear that we grab on a regular basis for adventures anytime of the year, PLUS a heads up on any great Black Friday deals coming up!

RUX Essentials Set

Yeah, of course we’re going to say we love this. But for reals, the Essentials Set is a game changer. The 70L alone is rad, but adding the Pocket and Bag to the mix creates a gear management system that you won’t be able to live without. We swear by it (but of course we’d say that).



Rumpl Original Puffy Blanket

So adaptable. The Puffy fits perfectly in a 70L, and is critical for beach hangs, apres ski, and everything in between. We love the Ocean Fade style (every purchase gives back to the Save the Waves Coalition)


VSSL Java Coffee Grinder

VSSL says it best, this grinder is “engineered for folks who give a damn about their coffee”. We agree. Our favourite moments are those way out there on adventures. Why ruin those epic times with crappy instant brew?


Gerber Bushcraft Hatchet

This is a small but mighty hatchet. We’re inseparable from it on camping trips, and it lashes to the outside rails of the 70L perfectly, using a RUX Utility Strap.


Bivy Stick Satellite Messenger

When things go off the rails, or you just need to fire a quick “I’ll be late for dinner” text, the Bivy Stick is a key piece of gear for us. Small enough that it tucks away in the RUX Pocket, and is there when you need it.


Strait and Narrow Cocktails

The Strait and Narrow Pacific Coast Cocktail's line up of gin and vodka based beverages is deelish. We love ‘em for adventure après! Available across BC & Alberta in 8 delicious flavours (sorry, those in the US and Eastern Canada, you’ll have to come visit!)

Turtlebox Speakers

Turtlebox’s Gen 2 speaker POUNDS. Really adds to the après vibe (you’ll notice RUX loves après). Bomber construction and cool colours, this is our go-to outdoor party in a box.
