Finding the perfect gift for your old man can be a challenge – what do you buy a man who has spent a lifetime accumulating the things that he wants? If you’ve got a dad who is into the outdoors, then we’ve got you covered. Here’s our top 6 gifts for the rad dad who loves to spend time outside.
Merino is a natural, performance fibre. It’s lightweight, super comfortable, warm when it’s cold, and extra breathable when it’s hot. Merino also has natural anti-odour properties, so dad won’t have to put his tee through the wash after every wear.
A lightweight down jacket is a man’s best friend. Whether it’s a warm layer on cold mornings, or a campsite staple for evenings around the fire, dads love a puffer. The Uber Light Down Jacket is designed to offer a great warmth to weight ratio, and compresses down into a convenient stuff sack making it an easy addition to any dad’s day pack.
As dad’s hair line starts to retreat towards the back of his wise old scone, he’s going to need a stylish hat to keep the sun at bay. Consider the Macpac Vintage Cap, complete with the classic Macpac logo to remind him of the good old days!
All the wondrous benefits of merino, in sock form! The crew sock is a dad classic. Perfect under a pair of business strides, or better yet, as a warm layer beneath a snazzy pair of sandals! Dad will love the warmth, comfort, and lack of stink provided by a new pair of merino socks.
Whether it’s for keeping a brew warm for early starts in the backcountry, or for carrying dad’s ‘special drink’ on a family holiday, a stainless steel flask is a must have for the outdoors dad.
The Boulder 28 is a great companion for commuting to work, or heading off for day walk. Dad’s prized possessions will be safe and sound whatever the weather, thanks to the Boulder’s tough as nails 420D Nylon fabric outer. There’s even an internal sleeve for a hydration bladder, so dad will never get thirsty on the go!
