Matador Freerain24 Backpack
Before it morphs into a backpack, Matador’s FreeRain24 is no bigger than a coffee cup. Unfurl the tiny bundle from its attached stuff sack, and you have a waterproof, lightweight and puncture resistant backpack that’s perfect for day trips. Tell your dad pack it his luggage or stash it in his car, and sooner or later, he’ll wonder how he ever lived without it. Sorry, discounts don’t apply for this item.
Luno Flip Tabletop Vinyl Record Display
Nothing makes a vinyl junkie prouder than showing off his collection. Luno’s Flip Tabletop record holder is handcrafted in LA and makes it easy for dad to display his current rotation. It’s also available in two finishes of solid American Walnut with solid brass details or solid Oak with chrome.
Twelve South Fermata Headphone Charging Stand
Wireless headphones are becoming the new norm, which is great for convenience — until their built-in batteries die. Twelve South’s Fermata headphone stand is an elegant way to display and charge the latest generation of wireless headphones. It also includes a handy USB port in its base to charge a phone or other device.
Inventery Mechanical Pen
This is no ordinary pen. That’s because it’s precision machined from a single brass rod to achieve a unibody construction and features a silent click, thanks to a brass click mechanism by Schmidt, not a standard plastic part. Thanks to individual serial numbers, each one is also unique, just like your pops.
The PK Grill & Smoker
This grill looks old school because it is old school. For over 60 years, PK’s USA-made aluminum charcoal grills have earned a reputation as some of the best-ever, and we all know pops could use some help in that area.
Type Hike Yellowstone Print
Help him pull his office decor out of the late ’80s with a National Park print from Type Hike. One hundred percent of the profits from sales are donated directly to the National Park’s Centennial Campaign; what kind of dad doesn’t think about legacy?

This Is Ground Tech Dopp Kit 2
You’ve learned you tend to lose things when they aren’t always in the same place. Unfortunately, you inherited this trait from your dad. The Tech Dopp Kit 2 from This Is Ground comes in three different sizes to hold and organize every kind of gadget a modern man could own, either at home or while out on the road. Its rich premium leather is also available in a variety of finishes to suit every taste.
Bellroy Passport Wallet
If the freedom of retirement has your old man gallivanting around the globe, Bellroy’s Passport Wallet is a must. It’s easily the best solution for organizing essential travel documents and even boasts an integrated pen for dealing with customs forms.
Horse Brand Camping Knife With Leather Sheath
It’s not selfish to gift someone something you hope to inherit someday. We swear. This spectacular Brooklyn made seven-inch camp knife features a sharp high-carbon steel blade and a handle made using reclaimed wood from the Coney Island Boardwalk.
Gear Patrol Magazine: Issue Four
Four issues and twenty distinct locations later, Gear Patrol Magazine is about to enter its next season. Inside this issue, you’ll find three robust chapters on destinations to keep at the top of your domestic adventure list, including Colorado’s Western Slope, the Texas Hill Country and Oahu. Per usual, there’s plenty of original reporting — and, yes, tons of gear. Annual subscribers also receive additional benefits including discounts on collaborations, a 15% discount code for use in the store and other exclusive benefits. Shipping is free on all subscriptions
Kammock Roo Adventure Hammock
Nothing says “I won life” like lounging in a hammock. Kammok designed the incredibly popular Roo adventure hammock to hang pretty much everywhere while comfortably fitting two people. It also packs down intro a small 24-ounce stuff sack.
Stahl Camper Firepit
He claims he loves making fires the old-fashioned way, and then never does it. Stahl’s Camper firepit eliminates the need to dig a pit and clear brush. It’s also designed to break down easily and be taken on the road — maybe even to your backyard. Really want to wow him? Consider getting the companion Firepit Sling.
The Grail Pick
If Money Were No Object
The Gear Patrol Special Edition FJ40
There’s a special place reserved in the pantheon of epic offspring for the kid who buys their dad this customized 1980 FJ40 Land Cruiser. We worked with some of the best restorers in the business — FJ Company — to tweak this beast in too many ways to fit here, so hit up the store link to find out more. (Sorry guys, discounts don’t apply here.)
