'Tis the season for some holiday cheer, snowy adventures, and time with those we love most. It's a magical time of year, and the clock is ticking down until that non-denominational gift-giving figure comes down the proverbial chimney with a sack full of presents. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the team here at Outdoor Project typically opts for experiences over objects - but with that said, we all have a few items of gear that we've been eyeing as we start to jot down our holiday wish list.

Without further ado, here's what the OP team is asking for this holiday season.
