Holiday Gift Guide: Adventuring Archeologist

Alright, so maybe you aren’t actually an archaeologist but this week’s Holiday Gift Guide is tailor-made for you adventurers that suffer from incurable wanderlust. If you don’t get excited when the Indiana Jones theme song plays you may need to check your pulse. Read more for a wish list that is full of undiscovered treasures that you’re gonna want under your tree this season.

The Orvis Company was founded in 1856 in Manchester, Vermont. They’re America’s oldest mail-order outfitter and longest continually-operating fly-fishing business. They are the world leader in fly fishing and the purveyor of the distinctive country lifestyle. The Vintage Finish Leather Jacket feels like an old friend from its first wearing. It comes with an already-broken-in patina and features a cafe-racer motorcycle style with its banded collar.


I dig hat companies and Yellow 108 from Los Angeles specializes in sustainable hats made from salvaged and recycled materials. They represent authentic American heritage, quality and timeless aesthetic. Check out the Duke Fedora made of 100% salvaged wool and salvaged leather headband.



“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both.” The opening text from Robert Frost’s iconic poem “The Road Not Taken” is emblazoned on the inside cover of this Antiqued Brass Compass from the Wind And Weather Company. It is the perfect gift for the well-travelled voyager and comes with a sharp vintage inspired leather case.


Saddleback Leather Company makes insanely tough leather goods in Texas. Each one is backed by a 100-year warranty and a company motto of “They’ll fight over it when you’re dead” Shown here in medium size and dark coffee brown, the front pocket backpack is worthy of carrying Indy’s Aztec Idol or a Crystal Skull. It’d be good for your laptop and maps too.


We’re huge boot fans here at Urban Beardsman and nothing will complete your quest for rugged style quite like the Alden 405 Indy Boots made for J. Crew. Charles Alden started the company in Massachusetts in 1884. The Indy Boots are actually inspired by Indiana Jones and customized with a specially stained welt. Each has Horween Chromexcel Leather upper and lining.
