Interviews with some of our friends about their holiday plans.
  • Jason McCarthy

    GORUCK | Founder & CEO

    What Uncharted product are you gifting this year? 

    Triage Kit. There's really no good reason not to have one with you everywhere. Especially when you have crazy kids AND a Monster of a dog.

    What are you hoping Santa brings you this year?

    Concert tickets - surprise me.

    What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?

    My kids – thanks, Emily. Other than them, my dogs Java and Monster (also, thanks Emily!)

    Favorite holiday tradition? 

    Midnight Mass, watching It's a Wonderful Life, and never going to the mall.

  • Christina Pascucci

    FOX Anchor + Reporter, Licensed Pilot

    What Uncharted product are you gifting this year?

    The Seventy2 is my favorite product hands down. Anyone I want to survive a zombie apocalypse with gets one if they’ve been reallyyyyy nice cause it is a big gift to give.

    What are you hoping Santa brings you this year?

    A ticket to space.

    What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?

    A trip I gifted myself to adventure around the world for 2 months.

    Favorite holiday tradition?

    Have you ever played find the pickle? This sounds horribly suggestive and I wish there were a better name but whoever finds the Christmas pickle that’s hidden in the tree gets money and it’s very competitive and fun :)

  • Jimmy Sansone

    The Normal Brand | Founder

    What Uncharted product are you gifting this year? 

    The Athena Portable Jump Starter and Power Bank x2. My wife and I have each had a few dead batteries this year, and this would save a lot of time.

     What are you hoping Santa brings you this year?

    We just moved into a new office and the walls need some love. I’d love a drawing of each of our newest stores in Kansas City, St. Louis, and Denver. 

    What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?

    My dad’s watch. I’ll keep it until my son’s ready to wear it. 

    Favorite holiday tradition?  

    Our grandfather started the tradition of sending traditional Italian Christmas baskets to clients, colleagues, friends, and family. We are proud to carry that on in our business.

    Poor guy works so hard im going to give him the year off.

    Although I’ve definitely received some nice gifts over the years, my favorite gifts are the memories and adventures that I share with my family and close friends.

    Being with my family on Christmas morning and staying in my Jammie’s all day long.

  • Jason Matzinger

    Hunting film director & producer

    What Uncharted product are you gifting this year?

    I think it would be sweet to give a few of my closest hunting partners the Triage Kit.  It’s so small but really has most anything you might need in an emergency.

    What are you hoping Santa brings you this year?

    If I could ask Santa to bring me one thing it would be a sweet custom base for the pedestal mount I’m doing of my 2022 Montana bull elk.  I’m pretty excited about that one…

    What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?

    I think one of my favorite gifts I ever received was a Stihl chainsaw from my two boys for Father’s Day. That one really stuck with me for some reason.

    Favorite holiday tradition?

    I think one of my favorite holiday traditions is on Thanksgiving Day. We hunt in the morning, then come home to an amazing Turkey feast, sit by the fire and watch football all day. Doesn’t get much better.

  • Chad Kagy

    Pro BMX rider

    What Uncharted product are you gifting this year?

    I’m giving the First Aid Pro for Christmas. My friends follow the “safety third” advice and sometimes they need a tube up after safety showed up late.

    What are you hoping Santa brings you this year?

    I hope Santa brings me a compound bow so I can go shooting and hunting with Christian.

    What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?

    The best Christmas gift I received was a BMX bike. Seems to have made a big difference in my life. 

    Favorite holiday tradition?

    I love getting my BRCC coffee brewed, A Christmas Story quietly playing in the background, and then letting the kids come down the stairs to see their gifts.

    Rooftop tent. Need to get my kiddos out in the wild (and tow a boat at same time :) 

    What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?

    My brother once made a hand made longbow that’s actually suitable for hunting. Can’t fathom how much work went into it.

    Now it’s reading night before Christmas to my own kids!!
