Outdoor Retailer Summer Market (a.k.a “OR”) is the world’s largest outdoor sports industry gathering! This is THE place to find the hot products, the latest trends and see the “coming soon” goods from over 1000 outdoor lifestyle brands.

The trick for a Gift Guru is to find the fun, unique, helpful and ultimately “gift-able” products from the thousands on hand. Here’s one I love:

The Gift: Eton Road Torq (available now for around $50)

The Scoop: An ideal travel companion, the Road Torq is an extremely versatile self-powered handheld light. One minute of hand cranking on the Road Torq will supply fifteen minutes of flashlight run time. The Road Torq can be used as a traditional flashlight or the three reflective, retractable legs can be utilized to serve as a roadside flare and work light. With the reflective legs, the 90 lumen flashlight and the red LED beacon this emergency flashlight is good to go when things don’t go as planned.  As recent weather disasters have shown us.

A Great Gift For: Peace of mind for those on the road. A great gift for young drivers and car commuters to stuff in a glove box “just in case”.
