20 Best Father’s Day Gifts Every Dad Will Love

Father’s Day is an interesting time of year for many men and women alike. Some of our fathers passed away or we may have never known them. Meanwhile, there are others that were cruel and terrible at the job. However, for those dads that were amazing and the ones that still are, it is always great to honor them with Father’s Day gifts.

Your biological father does not always have to be the one that you can consider a dad. There are step-fathers that are amazing out there, as well as uncles and grandfathers. Perhaps, there is a friend of the family that is like a dad to you or maybe even a teacher and a coach.

Whomever you consider a father or like one to you, it is great to do all you can to honor them as well. While just calling to tell them how you feel about them is nice and even seeing them, it’s nice to buy a little something too.

You’re no longer a boy so buying him a tie or socks isn’t enough. However, we are not asking you to break the bank with your purchase either. Men’s Gear thought long and hard about what we’d like to buy our fathers and came up with this list.

While some of the products may come off as weird, others are absolutely awesome! We found perfect gifts from the outdoor, tech, entertainment, and style worlds that every dad will love!

That said, check these out and let us know which of these Father’s Day gifts you’ll want to buy!

The Osprey brand has provided some absolutely amazing products over the years. However, they are most known to the outdoor world as one of the best backpack companies out there.

One of the most common things we at Men’s Gear hear about the brand is that they can do no wrong with their bags. Yet the best thing they offer is a low price and/or reasonable price for everything they add to make them.

At the top of this list is their hydration backpacks. What are they? These bags are specifically made for things like climbing and hiking. They have a water sleeve inside the backpack that you can fill with water or whatever else you might want.

Special tubing is added within the bag and through the shoulder straps, with an endpoint being a straw that you can drink water from. The sleeves are usually capable of holding at least half a gallon of water.

Osprey usually has 2.5L or more in their specialized Osprey Hydraulics® reservoir sleeve. This is more than enough to use for a nice hike, and it won’t be too difficult to carry.

The sleeve fits inside the backpack quite well too, with its own dedicated hook to keep the water safe from other things you might be carrying.

Most of these backpacks from Osprey are under $120 too! Best of all, Osprey’s warranty policy is one of the best in the business. All in all, this is one of the best Father’s Day gifts you could buy for your dad.

  • checkEvery Osprey Hydration Bag Is $130 And Under

Gerber is one of the absolute best outdoor brands in the world. If we even thought for a second that we could ignore them on a list of Father’s Day gifts, we wouldn’t be a real men’s website. Gerber has a ton of great products.

However, if you’re looking for Father’s Day gifts that will fit most any man, you cannot go wrong with their Off-Road Survival Kit. This kit is literally designed for those certain moments when everything goes to hell and dad needs to stay alive.

The reason it is called an off-road survival kit is two-fold. Clearly, you are not going to be driving when you need something like this. On top of that, if you run out of gas or have a bad accident and your car cannot run, you still have to survive.

What happens when the phone is broken, you’re on a dark and unpopulated road, and you’re injured? Gerber wanted to prepare you with a kit for this situation. Everything in the kit is perfect for emergency situations, such as the example we gave above.

It comes with an MP 600 Multi-Tool, Back Paxe Axe, Maglite Pro+ Flashlight, Exchange-A-Blade Handsaw, Concertina Wire Cutter, E-Tool, and a small/basic First Aid Kit.

This fits inside anything dad might drive from a Truck or SUV to a Porsche. It’s compact at just 12″ x 11″ x 3″ in the complete dimensions,

The best thing is that all of this when bought separately from Gerber will cost you quite a lot of money. A few items in this kit can easily be near $100 or beyond it. Yet this survival kit comes in just under $500.

As far as Father’s Day gifts go, it is one of the best you’ll find for what it offers.

Wilson’s Leather may very well be the absolute best leather jacket company that we have ever seen. They have multiple jackets with terrific styles across all fields a leather jacket could be used.

Some men and women may not care for leather itself, so Wilson’s offers other options for those people. They have several jackets from their faux-leather line that are terrific for those looking to feel less guilty.

However, men are usually not going to care about this sort of thing. That is why we direct your attention to one of the company’s best leather jackets. They call it the Wilson’s Classic Leather Jacket.

It comes in brown, which is said to be “Cognac” apparently. As you can see, this jacket is absolutely terrific. Brown tends to match with a lot, but for men, it seems that anything leather can work with their outfit in the casual or business casual department.

Every man has a nice leather jacket in their closet to work for several different functions they might attend.

This specific jacket is quilted to perfection with everything you need to have both a comfortable AND stylish fit. It looks great both open and closed and even has zippered pockets for perfect insulation and an assist to the style.

Although this jacket normally sells for $600, they cut this down by nearly 50% to get right at the $330 price tag. It appears they also brought down the price again for a special sale, meaning this item could be yours for a steal currently!

This falls under Father’s Day gifts that fit nearly any budget.

4Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

Editors Rating

  • star

Considered by many to be one of the greatest self-help books for men ever written, Meditations is completely brilliant. It was written by former Roman Emperor himself, Marcus Aurelius.

Yes, THAT Marcus Aurelius.

While the movie Gladiator completely disregards mostly all Roman history when using Marcus, they were not wrong about a few things. Marcus was a tremendous General and brilliant tactician. His ideology was considered to be so impressive that no one questioned his moves.

The biggest issue that Rome dealt with at the time was that Roman Emperors rarely used their children as rulers after they served. They’d name someone to the position and then take them on as a son of sorts. Marcus had this honor yet fought in wars anyway.

The reason Marcus was so well-liked was due to the army believing in him. He never could have ruled without this. Respect from the Roman Army was worth gold to an incoming Emperor. If they questioned you, it could result in a bad situation.

This was something Marcus did not consider in his later life, resulting in his son being killed when he took the throne.

Yet this was the only true mistake Marcus made. The Meditations book was officially formed after his death yet uses all of Aurelius’ stories and thoughts. He was considered to be an impressive Stoic Philosopher due to his writings. Yet his wise nature impressed everyone around him, especially the jackals of the Senate.

However, he never wrote his thoughts down with the intention to publish them. People simply read what he wrote and thought it was just too impressive for the world to never see it. In his writings, he describes the numerous things he dealt with during his time. He does this by making his work into philosophical material.

Marcus’ philosophical writing was written mostly for himself. This is why it feels like he is writing as if he did this for others to enjoy. Yet that simply wasn’t his intention. If anything, Marcus would simply say to people what he thought rather than have them read it.

Due to his impressive writings being read by Generals, Kings, Queens, and your average Joe…the book has remained popular for hundreds of years. Officially, it did not become a major published book until the late 1700s yet the writing itself is nearly 2,000 years old.

When you’re considering Father’s Day gifts for the dad that reads, Meditations is absolutely perfect.

Pros

MVMT is one of the best watch brands in the world, yet they are also among the newest of the major brands. Like others, they sell more than just watches at MVMT, yet that is what made them famous.

Officially, most of their watches are used for fashion purposes and not really proper for use outside in the elements. Yet they have several watch lines and every version of them are made for specific purposes. Some of which are made so that you can use them for more than just fashion.

It is impossible for a man to not find a watch here that he’ll love. Seriously, take any man and put them in front of all of their watches and we’ll bet you all the money in our piggy bank that he’ll love something.

This is due to what MVMT brings to the table. They have a ton of different minimalist options, which works for the older and younger father alike. However, they also have watch types that certain fathers may love more such as their Voyager, Odyssey, and Revolver options.

These options are also made to use outdoors and are often water resistant. Their Modern Sport line is the most durable, however. These will be the type you’d want to use on a hike or when you’re going camping.

However, their Classic series is truly what made them famous originally. This mixes in a great look that is both old and new. It’s a hybrid of both styles and looks absolutely terrific. You often have a minimalist appearance with the band and outer-watch contents.

Then they go new school with the watch look underneath the cap. The model in our image above shows you this the best, however.

Father’s Day gifts like this are perfect for the dad that likes to be fashionable. The best part is that MVMT watches work for fathers in any age-group.

Pros

Yamaha has been a huge name in the world of music for years, however, they are most prominent for their drums. A lot of fathers out there may be huge fans of music and they may even want to share that love with others.

Yamaha gives them that option with their Electric Acoustic Drums. This is a hybrid of the Electric Drums and your regular Acoustic Drum set that has been around for decades.

They simply take your acoustic drums and have you put the product on them. This allows your acoustic drums to become electric as well!

This is something you’ll see in a music studio today, as it gives the band the sound they need while not compromising with the sound quality. The ability to switch up sound like electric drums is efficient yet classic drummers will love the appeal of the normal design and set up.

You can easily record your play too. All you need to do is download their application, plug in your phone to the system when you’re ready to record, and you’re all set. It is literally that simple.

This app even allows you to record yourself playing live, and not just record the sound. Of course, that only gives you the ability to see yourself play and notice any mistakes you might make. Thus, this is also a good drum set to learn on.

Best of all, unlike normal electric drums, you do not need anything to be “turned on” for these drums to work. The drums are still acoustic, as you’re either buying a normal set to play on from Yamaha or you have your own that you’re adding the product to.

They can be unhooked from any electric properties and still operate like normal acoustic drums.

This is a huge asset that makes them well worth getting for ALL drummers. Of course, the electric part only works when they are plugged in, naturally. Plus, you’ll get a better quality overall sound with them being plugged in too.

When one considers Father’s Day gifts, this may be out of the budget. Yet it’s really awesome, so maybe you can have fun with this along with Dad.

  • checkCan Record Using Various Sounds
  • checkCapable Of Use Without Being Plugged In

7Icemule Boss

The Icemule Boss™ backpack is quite unique and well worth your investment. What is it?

While it acts as a regular backpack, 30L of space we might add, it is sooo much more. The Icemule brand makes coolers, which are world renowned for their ability to handle the heat.

Unlike some coolers that end up getting hot and melt the ice inside of them, Icemule holds up well enough to last numerous hours within it. In most cases, the Icemule Boss™ is the best among them and can last days keeping things cold.

Seriously, put ice in this thing and leave it outside a day or two. You’ll be shocked to see that nothing has truly melted in that time.

Of course, this depends on the temperature outside. Yet regardless of 100-degree temps, it can still manage at least a day before it starts to have trouble.

The way Icemule manages to do this is through their own genius designs. They use their PolarLayer XT™ Insulation foam and IM AirValve™ to keep things cool.

Essentially, the insulation helps to prevent anything from getting out. Meanwhile, the air valve keeps everything from getting in, including warm air. They manage to triple their protection of the inside contents with their Tri-Fold DriTop™ too.

This opens up to allow the user to put ice and contents inside. You merely fold it and put it into the bag. This foldable top ensures even less warmth gets in. With all of this in play, it is not shocking to see it hold up so well.

This is not where things end with this cooler either.

Due to being a backpack as well, it is truly meant for portability. You can carry cold stuff as well as other things you might need to take along with you. It even uses PakShield™ zippers to keep things together.

It is capable of easily handling 60lbs too. On top of all of this is Icemule’s specialized MuleSkin™ fabric. This fabric allows the bag/cooler to be 100% waterproof. That means you can take this into rainstorms and you’re ensured a dry inside when you arrive at your destination.

This is something that can work for both a young and older father, in our opinion. It is perfect for camping or outdoor get-togethers. Father’s Day gifts like this are special and well worth the investment you make. It is something your dad can use over and over for numerous things.

Columbia is considered by many to be one of the best outdoor clothing brands in the world today. It is not hard to see why, as they have managed to do quite well with men and even women with their clothing.

They sell better than most brands, which has ultimately allowed them to specialize their clothing items. This is where their Performance Fishing Gear comes into play. There is a ton of gear in this line to be excited about if you’re a fisherman.

Although it depends on your interests and needs, they seem to have a perfect line that can work for every man. Here are some of the things you can buy:

  • Terminal Deflector Zero™ Hoodie
  • Super Terminal Tackle™ Long Sleeve Shirt
  • Force XII Zero™ Long Sleeve Hybrid Shirt
  • Slack Tide™ Camp Shirt
  • Bahama™ II Short Sleeve Shirt

  • Brewha II™ Short
  • Harborside™ Chino Pant
  • Blood and Guts™ III Convertible Pant

They also have specially designed shoes that will be perfect for fishing nearly anywhere. Since most can handle water pretty well, you won’t have to worry about the issues normal sneakers might provide. Here are a few of the shoes you can get from Columbia:

  • Force 12™ II PFG Shoe
  • Bahama™ Vent PFG Shoe
  • Dorado™ CVO PFG Shoe
  • Bahama™ Vent Relaxed PFG Shoe
  • Bahama™ Vent Loco Relaxed II PFG Shoe
  • Delray™ CVO PFG Shoe

  • Bahama™ Vent PFG Shoe – Wide
  • Delray™ PFG Shoe

This is only a small portion of the gear line too. They have plenty of hats, gloves, and much more clothing on top of that. We recommend you check them out whenever possible.

If the selection depth wasn’t enough for you, the price sure could be. Most of the items listed above are $75 and under. The shirts average $25 to $50 alone! That means you could easily buy dad an entire outfit of sorts with these prices for $100 or less!

When we think about Father’s Day gifts that dad will love, our first thought is how universal the choices will be. It is clear that most men will love gear like this either to fish in or to use outdoors.

That said, you cannot go wrong with picking something from the Columbia Performance Fishing Gear line.

Filson has been one of the best work jacket brands in the world the last number of years. However, they really took a shot at other companies when they introduced an affordable line of utility and work jackets.

The reason companies took it as a shot at them was due to Filson making these jackets and the entire line of gear insanely affordable. The biggest example of this in their entire line is the C.C.F. Utility Jacket.

You can purchase this impressive jacket for just $150. You may assume that this is a bit pricey, but it’s actually not. In fact, an average jacket just like this will cost you $300 to $400 elsewhere.

Carhartt among other brands sell the same type of jacket for that price, so Filson knew they could beat that with an affordable price on their items. While most of their clothing items are fairly priced, something bigger comes out of this.

Filson makes everything in North America, with most items being made in the United States of America. Their C.C.F. Utility Jacket happens to be made in Canada.

This jacket is made using cotton duck canvas, and it is filled with lightweight polyester insulation. The hood on the jacket is also insulated and even adjustable. The jacket also has two chest pockets, interior security pocket, and handwarmer pockets.

These pockets are also made larger to accommodate when you’re wearing gloves.

They are made for work, being out in the field, and even everyday use. It’s truly a universal jacket that is affordable for nearly anyone. This jacket is great for Father’s Day in our book. Father’s Day gifts like this may not be used right now, but it’ll certainly be used down the line.

If you’re looking for something that’ll be perfect for any father at any stage of their life, it’s gotta be Jack.

Trust us, every dad needs a drink every once in a while. You were quite a handful and likely still are for them. Due to this, they always needed something strong to drink to help them deal with it all.

Heck, they may still have your mother to deal with on a regular basis. We all know that she makes him deal with a lot more than he’s capable of at times.

That said, Jack Daniel’s Whiskey is a perfect gift for him.

While in America one must be 21 years of age or older, you can always find a bottle that you think he’ll like and give him the money to buy it for himself. If you’re of age, go ahead and buy it for the guy. If not, try that option and either way, he’ll be good with the decision.

What can you choose for him?

Jack is known as one of the best Rye Whiskey companies in the world and especially the United States. That said, their Tennessee Rye may be the best option if you know your father likes this type.

Maybe you’re not sure what dad likes.

That means you may need to guess the best possible option, but you won’t need to search too hard on this. There are a few you cannot go wrong with. That’s the Gentleman Jack & Old No. 7.

These are some of the top whiskeys in the country, period. They also can be used in various food dishes. Old No. 7 alone has a mellow taste that isn’t really very strong. The alcohol isn’t too overbearing, so it tastes good and still gives you the buzz a normal whiskey offers.

This is also the type of Jack Daniels whiskey most people use for the infamous “Jack & Coke” option.

Meanwhile, the Gentleman Jack is both mellow and smooth. This smoothness is a big deal for men who do not drink very much. A lot of men prefer to have something that goes down easy even if they do have a drink on the regular.

This is why the Gentleman Jack is so useful. It is a universal whiskey that isn’t too much for any man to deal with. Plus, it tastes very good. It has an oaky taste due to the barrel it was in and they add vanilla & caramel to the drink mix to give it a small sweet taste too. It’s a terrific combo.

Most Jack bottles are going to be 750ML or 1.75L in size. That means you can get a good bit out of one bottle that dad can return to a lot when needed. The prices are pretty easy to handle for all the versions we mentioned too.

You’ll spend anywhere between $25 and $50, depending on the size you get and where you buy it from. Father’s Day gifts like this are cheaper and in every budget. Plus, we all know Dad needs a drink almost every day.

11KEEN Dover Utility Boots

KEEN is a brand that Men’s Gear absolutely loves. We have written on their products many times and have added them to our best brand lists when it comes to work & outdoor boots.

They are a friend to the site, so we could not avoid adding them to the list. We truly believe in their boots and shoes and we feel the Dover boots are some of the best KEEN has to offer.

They are among the newest in their line of utility boots.

The best thing about KEEN is that they make utility boots look like something you’d wear to work our out in public. At the same time, you’re getting an amazing pair of boots that keep your feet safe and help you from having any major issues.

The Men’s Dover boots have a carbon fiber toe, which allows for the boots to be more mobile while also protecting you from most falling objects. That could be something as simple as a wrench falling or even something more serious, like a knife.

This won’t protect like a steel toe boot, keep in mind. Yet for your basic needs, your toes are safe from major issues.

KEEN puts ALL of their utility boots through extreme testing in not only their own testing center but also with safety companies. This allows them to make a pair of boots that meet all safety regulations,

The Dover meets the following safety ratings:

  • The ASTM F1677-96 MARK II Non-Slip Testing Standards
  • The ASTM F2412-17 and F2913-17 F I/75 C/75 EH Standards
  • And the ASTM F2913-17 SATRA Non-Slip Testing Standards

Some of you may not know what that stuff means. However, for the man who may work outside or in a factory…you’ll know all about these regulations.

The Dover also uses special KEEN technology. The Dover is capable of a lot, which is why so many seem to love it already. Here is what you can look for in the KEEN Dover boots:

  • KEEN.DRY WATERPROOF, BREATHABLE MEMBRANE
  • WATERPROOF LEATHER UPPER
  • KONNECTFIT HEEL-CAPTURE SYSTEM FOR A LOCKED-IN FIT
  • TPU SHANK FOR MIDFOOT SUPPORT
  • REMOVABLE METATOMICAL PU FOOTBED
  • 90° HEEL (5/8″ HEIGHT)
  • KEEN LUFTCELL DUAL-DENSITY PU MIDSOLE, INFUSED WITH AIR FOR WEIGHTLESS COMFORT
  • OIL- AND SLIP-RESISTANT NON-MARKING RUBBER OUTSOLE

Best of all, the Dover boots are made in the United States. You’ll be supporting working Americans by buying them, so why not?

The Dover boots are lightweight despite all the safety they have, and they’re insanely comfortable. Shoes made for people to work in must be comfortable, otherwise, it would be difficult to get a job done, right?

To get some discounts, all students can use their Student Program and get a little bit off of the cost. The same can be done for people who sign up for the KEEN Pro Program.

SOG is one of the best knife makers we’ve ever seen. The best part is that they offer all of their knives at affordable prices that anyone can afford. Although they do have specialty knives that can be a bit expensive, around 90% of them are less than $100.

This brings us to one of the best Father’s Day gifts one can buy, the SOG Flash II.

This knife is part of a line of knives from SOG under the Flash II banner. All of the knives are assisted open, however, they also differ mostly when it comes to the blade. We prefer a certain one in the line called the Flash II Black Tini.

It comes with a serrated blade that takes up half the overall blade. The remaining portion of it is a straight fixed blade type. This allows the overall blade to be capable of cutting nearly anything.

To top it off, it is a great knife to have for protection.

As mentioned, it’s assisted open. This is actually legal in all 50 states across America and even legal in The UK. Switchblades are often banned in several countries as well as many states in America.

Meanwhile, assisted open knives are not considered as dangerous. Yet they can still open fast enough to give you the proper speed when you need them most.

To further add to its usefulness, the knife also comes with a clip that allows men to attach it to a belt or on their person somewhere else.

If you feel another from the Flash II line is best, then, by all means, buy it. You cannot go wrong with any SOG knife, in our opinion.

SOG puts a lifetime guarantee on their knives, so they are well worth the buy. On top of this, every knife from the Flash II line is under $100. Currently, a sale is going on to get one for less than $60.

You may not know a lot about the Cloudstyle brand, but they are one of the most affordable suit companies we have seen. To top it off, they also bring quality to their work and therefore their clothing does not come off cheaply made.

Established in 2014, Cloudstyle became an international trade company. This means they are capable of getting a product to anyone nearly anywhere in the world. Currently, they export suits and other clothing to over 100 countries around the world.

Based in Canada but have clothing made all over the world, they set out on a mission to make quality suits affordable to the masses. So far, Cloudstyle has lived up to their concept. For Father’s Day, it makes total sense to buy one of their best suits.

For us, it’s their 2-piece Slim Fit Business Suit. This suit comes in 10 different colors, so you’re bound to find one you like. The current colors offered are green, black, maroon, pink, purple, blue, navy, khaki, and dark cyan.

One thing we like about Cloudstyle is that they are very open about their sizing and what is in their suits. For example, their Business Suit is made with 67.9% Polyester, 31.2% Viscose, and 0.9% of Spandex.

We recommend you check the sizing chart that they clearly put on the screen before you buy. Their sizing slightly differs from American sizing. This is very important.

Father’s Day gifts like this may be best for the younger father. Yet it could also make a slightly older man look damn good too. We’re sure he’ll love it.

One of the best Father’s Day gifts this year might very well be the Omen Mindframe Headset by HP. This headset is purposely made for gamers but it can be used for multiple purposes like podcasts, listening to music, and much more.

The coolest part about these headphones, literally, is the frost cap technology.

Do you know how after your use of them for a while, the headset can end up making your ears kinda hot? Gamers especially know this feeling. That is why the Omen added the frost cap, as it’s quite literally designed to keep you cool.

Inside the headphones, you’ll see a metal-looking cap. This is where the cooling comes in while you’re wearing them. If you feel like you’re getting too warm at any point, you can always just push them close to your ear to get cooler quicker.

This is not all the Omen offers.

The sound quality is extremely effective, capable of delivering full immersion in the game or the music. This allows them to be noise-canceling while also delivering quality sound at the same time.

The sound can be insanely loud or very little. It is fully adjustable on the headset. It also uses realistic positional audio. Meaning if you hear gunshots in a game from the right side, your right ear will hear it and not the other. If something is far away or close, you’ll hear it based on the volume it would realistically be heard.

In order to use the mic on the headset, you merely need to just pull the mic down. To turn it off, you just push it up in the original position it came in.

The fit is also perfect for most heads, even those with larger heads. You know who we’re talking about…Gerald.

They took the price down from its normal $200 to only $130. That means it’s the perfect time to buy!

The RUSH™ line by Under Armour is the newest line from the company. A lot of the time, new lines mean higher prices and thus less affordable options. However, that was never the idea for Under Armour.

They wanted to make a clothing line that could fit the average man’s needs while also making a profit that the company could benefit from. There are some products from Under Armour that might be higher in price than needed, but not the RUSH™ line.

One of the best products from it is their Compression Long-Sleeve Shirt.

This is perfect for the athletic father as well as the one who just likes to go to the gym. It’s also for the type of guy that wants to look a bit better. Since this is a compression shirt, it smushes the fat in. Therefore, it can be worn underneath normal clothing and make a man look slightly slimmer.

This shirt is ultralight according to UA. So much so, it’s called a “second skin” by those who have used it. The shirt also helps to improve endurance and strength. The way it does this is by using the clothing to absorb energy and reflect it back into the muscles and tissues.

All of the RUSH™ gear offers anti-odor technology to prevent the growth of odor-causing microbes. The compression shirt offers mesh panels, providing tremendous ventilation.

Powered by Celliant, the body of the product is made of 82% of Polyester as well as 18% Elastane. Meanwhile, the mesh panels are made up of 90% Polyester and 10% Elastane.

The UA RUSH™ line is athlete tested and athlete approved, so we’re pretty sure dad will love the gear. We feel even stronger about the compression shirt, as it is perfect for any man who chooses to buy one or take one on as a gift.

Father’s Day gifts like this can be used throughout the year, so it’ll more be worth the investment.

A multi-tool is really hard to find when you think about it. At least, a good one is hard to find. There are plenty out there with a few interesting things in them. However, they are usually cheaply made and from a random business in China or something.

We did not want to guide you to one of those, but we knew we wanted to mention multi-tools in this piece. Men love multi-tools, especially fathers. You know how much crap we have to put together, so having something that can work for any need is incredibly useful.

The best at making them, in our book, is Victorinox. The Swiss masters are obviously a top company for the infamous Swiss Army Knives. However, it does not take much for them to merely adjust things and make an amazing multi-tool.

They’re clearly Swiss enough to make this sort of thing work out well for themselves. That said, their clear best is the SwissTool Spirit XC, the Plus Racket version. What does it contain? An impressive 29 tools!!

Those tools are:

With so many tools and useful material in this multi-tool, it is something every man can benefit from having. It is quite clear that your father will obviously have a use for it, which means you won’t be wasting money on something you know he likely won’t use.

Fathers are nothing if not always in need of more tools, at least the ones that we’ve known.

That said, Father’s Day gifts like this are obviously going to be well worth it. On top of this, buying from Victorinox offers some big perks. Not only are you getting quality but also a company that stands by their products.

Their multi-tools have a lifetime guarantee. This means that you never have to worry about getting value out of your purchase. It’ll clearly be worth it or the company will fix the problems that prevent it from being just that.

The Kangee™ T-Hawk is one of the absolute best tactical tomahawks in the world today. If nothing else can be said about it, the Kangee™ has managed to stand out over other tomahawks due to how impressively it’s made.

It was originally designed for Columbia River Knife & Tool, CRKT, by Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical. He has made several different products involving blades over the years, but he’s one of the true best when it comes to tomahawk designs.

The Kangee™ T-Hawk is incredibly well-made and designed. It stands out due to its versatility and how durable it happens to be.

This tomahawk uses the incredible SK5 Carbon Steel for the sharp side of the product. It then uses tremendous glass reinforced nylon handles, with an additional textured grip. It also comes in a Boltaron® Sheath, which includes a buckled strap.

This makes the sheath MOLLE compatible.

Due to the nylon handles and gripping, this tomahawk can be used in the rain and snow without the risk of it slipping from your hands. The coolest part is that you could drop this in a puddle of mud or a lake and then be capable of using it without an issue.

The actual blade is made with durable carbon steel, which makes it nearly impossible to destroy. The Kangee™ actually comes with a spike end, which allows you to use the T-Hawk for protection from animals as well as other humans, and even fishing.

If that wasn’t enough, it comes in at a price that is affordable and among the best in the industry for tomahawks of this value.

We love Father’s Day gifts like this because it can be used for so much. On top of this, you’re getting a product that’ll last for a very long time.

5.11 Tactical is clearly a company known for its tactical products. You don’t need us to tell you that, but they also have several impressive outdoor products overall. We could not recommend them enough for your needs in this area.

The company often makes products that can be considered universal or great for use every single day. This is especially true about their Apex Pants, which are some of the most comfortable and useful tactical pants on the market.

The biggest issue with pants and jeans is that you cannot move well in them. Men usually have to go to sweatpants to get that kind of freedom. Even shorts are better for this.

5.11 wanted to end that problem, which is why their pants overall are very impressive. You can move easily in them due to the material in them being capable of stretching. This allows you to move up, down, left, and right without an issue.

The Apex Pants are useful due to all they provide the wearer. Due to so much being involved in these pants, we felt we needed to just show you the list of special additions you’re going to be getting out of them. Check all of this out:

  • Internal cargo pouch magazine pockets
  • Twin back yoke magazine pockets
  • Flex cuff pocket inside waist
  • Two-way Flex-Tac® mechanical stretch
  • Handcuff key pocket inside rear waist
  • Teflon® treated to repel stains, soil, and moisture
  • Gusseted construction
  • Comfort waistband
  • Articulated knees
  • Deep cargo pockets with clean interior finish
  • Reinforced knife clip area
  • Seven reinforced belt loops
  • Bartacking at key stress locations
  • Genuine YKK® zipper hardware
  • Made with 67% Polyester/ 33% Cotton

It’s clear with all of this in the pants, they’re going to be quite helpful to any man who decides to wear them. This makes them perfect for Dad, who could truly get a lot of wear out of these pants for sure.

They even come in 10 different colors. Those are:

  • Ranger Green
  • Black
  • Khaki
  • Storm
  • Volcanic
  • Battle Brown
  • Burnt
  • TDU Green
  • Tundra
  • Dark Navy

They come in a ton of different sizes to meet most men’s needs. In fact, they offer waist sizes 28 to 44. Although they only have 4 length sizes, those are 30, 32, 34, and 36.

That could be problematic for taller men, but it likely covers the vast majority of them.

We love Father’s Day gifts like this, as it certainly makes sense for Dads. It fits what they’d want and need, so you’re getting a present that you can be sure they’ll get a lot of use out of. You may need to speak with your mom or him about sizing first, however.

19Justin Original Pulley Steel Toe Boots

While we always like KEEN due to their versatile line of shoes and boots that can be used for work or casual activity, it’s hard to hate a good pair of boots specifically made for work. Justin Original is a terrific brand that knows how to make a solid pair of work boots.

While they can make a casual pair too, they are known for their affordable work boots that are extremely well-made. One of the best pairs they have is their Pulley Steel Toe option that is exactly as it sounds, steel toe boots.

These are part of their 8-inch lace-up boot line, which is extremely popular with the brand.

You get a lot with these boots, so let’s go over what you’ll be getting for Dad here.

The boots are “distressed brown leather.” This gives it a slightly older yet vintage look. As with every pair of Justin Original boots, the patented J-Flex Flexible Comfort System® insole comes with this pair of boots too. This helps protect your feet with a comfortable inside.

While the comfort system will help you well throughout a given day, the Stampede™ Rubber and EVA Combination is insanely helpful to the boots overall. This makes them resistant to abrasions, chips, slipping, and marking.

This allows for the wearer to move about any surface without the risk of any major issues.

The inclusion of this also allows these boots to be worn in Electrical Hazards up to 18,000 volts. Meanwhile, the steel toe in the boots allows men to wear this pair in most factories across the United States.

On top of this, the impressive insole allows for men to wear them on a ranch without the risk of any discomfort throughout a given day.

While many products made by Justin Original are made in America, they do not tend to have a great warranty policy. They do have a good 60-day return policy in place but the 1-year warranty they offer is quite limited, unlike that of rival companies.

Many of which offer a lifetime deal or fully cover shoes and/or boots for the 1 to 2 years they are under warranty for any reason.

Outside of this, there really isn’t a bad thing to say about the boots. Typically a warranty or return isn’t needed because the boots are so impressive. Most men get years out of their boots before any repairs or replacements need to be made when they buy Justin Original.

Father’s Day gifts like this are practical and well worth the investment.

With the success of the Bohemian Rhapsody film, the band known as Queen has become a big deal once again. They’re now even traveling, doing several big concerts with Adam Lambert stepping in for the brilliant Freddy Mercury.

While Queen is not making any new music truthfully, they are still known for their amazing work. It’s pretty obvious that your Dad will love a great Queen CD to listen to.

Luckily, Queen has a great way for you to listen to them. There is a “Best Of” CD right now that will cost you less than $30 to buy. It costs around $20, which makes it a cheaper option for your old man.

Father’s Day gifts don’t have to be expensive. While most of us may buy a CD via iTunes, it’s likely your Dad will want something to listen to the old fashioned way. To do this, he’ll need a CD, despite their uselessness in today’s medium for most of us.

That said, we’ve managed to find a “Best Of” CD for Queen that includes most of their biggest hits. It’s under what is known as the Queen Platinum Collection. That means you’ll see songs on here such as:

  • Another One Bites The Dust
  • Killer Queen
  • Crazy Little Thing Called Love
  • Somebody To Love
  • Don’t Stop Me Now
  • Fat Bottom Girls
  • We Will Rock You
  • We Are the Champions
  • Under Pressure
  • Bohemian Rhapsody
  • Play The Game
  • The Show Must Go On
  • These Are The Days Of Our Lives

These major songs and many more are in the collection, making it terrific for the biggest Queen fan. Father’s Day Gifts like this are cheaper, yet perfect for the Dad who loves music.

When you think of Father’s Day gifts, it’s hard to not consider a more expensive option for your Dad. However, it does not matter if he’s 30, 50, or 70. Every dude loves Queen!

An Ultra-Rare Yamaha OX99-11 Recently Went Up for Sale

In the late 1980s, Yamaha decided to enter into Formula One racing. The company wanted to be competitive and this meant building a supercar that could truly take on the other racing teams that’d been in F1 for years. That’s why the OX99-11 exists. The car was commissioned by the Yamaha Sports division and was based around the 3.5-liter naturally-aspirated V12 engine. 

That engine made 400 hp and could spin up to a shrieking 10,000 rpm. It was paired to a six-speed manual transmission, and all the power went to the rear wheels. Those power numbers might not sound amazing in light of today’s F1 cars, but you have to remember this car weighed only about 2,500 pounds and had a very short wheelbase. The 400 hp the engine produced was more than enough to make it a beast of an F1 car.

The impressive design and engineering feats didn’t end with the powertrain. The car featured a unique tandem (one behind the other) seating arrangement and an aerodynamic overall shape. This unique design gave the car a noticeable and unforgettable look for those who know it exists it. It was designed by an English company called IAD.

Eventually, Ypsilon Technology in Milton Keynes took the project over. Eventually, the cost of the project had climbed so much and perceived demand was so low that it was shut down. However, three of the cars exist today. According to Carscoops, one of them is now for sale for $1.3 million. 

2019 Yamaha YZ450FX Smart Dirt Bike

Go to any dirt bike event and you’ll see a heap of nice bikes blitzing across the track, but you never see an off-road motorcycle with a smartphone-based wireless engine tuner. Pretty niche reference there… you also never see aliens but in the case of the former, Yamaha are about to change that. Feast your eyes on Yamaha’s upcoming YZ450FX, a smart bike that has the ferocity of a monster.

If you are familiar with Yamaha’s YZ450F – their fastest and biggest bike yet – this 2019 release is a variation of that beast. When we say variation, we mean amplified. One of the biggest draw-ins is that certain features of the bike can be controlled via an app on your smartphone. Due to the bike’s connectivity with the rider’s phone, the rider can tune the bike to their preferences. The app can control things like ignition and fuel mapping changes, log functions which documents location, bike settings and condition, and even a function to serve as bike maintenance.

The machine has an increased gas tank and a 4-stroke 449cc engine, making it a cross-country bike rather than a traditional motorcross type. The frame of the bike has been made aerodynamic and its clutch and transmission have also been spiced up. There’s a lot of fun to be had here and we envy any guy who gets to ride one of these.
