It’s that time of year again, where we pay homage to the man with the plan: dear old dad. We’re pretty sure your pops could wrap his tie collection around the house twice, so why not get him something that he will love and use for Father’s Day this year? SunnySports is chock full of excellent gift items that dad may even be secretly pining for, so have a look through their massive selection of outdoor gear to find that perfect gift! Bonus points if he actually gets to use it on Father’s Day.
A good pack isn’t hard to find, but one that combines compact sizing, versatility, and weatherproofing is one that is worth searching for. Fortunately, we’ve done the searching for you and landed on this sweet urban backpack from SealLine. The name of the pack does indeed infer that it is good for urban use, but there’s no reason this pack can’t be used anywhere, anytime. This lightweight pack is made from durable, RF-welded polyester fabric coated in polyurethane for a finish that repels moisture, and the roll-top with QuickClip closure ensures that not a drop will make it inside, making this a great pack for carrying electronics, clothes, or anything else that needs to stay dry. It also has a waterproof zippered pocket on the outside, for easy access to smaller items. The back features a ventilated panel to keep the moisture off your back, and a stowable waist belt will keep the pack securely on your body no matter what activity you’re doing. And to top it all off, it just looks cool. Available in a variety of colors and sizes.
Give your dad the gift of power and sound out in the woods with this awesome solar panel and speaker combo kit from GoalZero. This kit includes 2 solar panels that charge a 12v battery, all housed in a sturdy folding nylon case. The battery has a USB port for charging cell phones, mp3 players, and other small electronics, including the portable wooden speaker that comes with the kit. The speaker can be fully charged by the Nomad 7 solar panels in 4 hours, while cell phones only take 1-2 hours, which is much faster than having to wait until you get back to the car or other power source. There’s a whole slew of accessories that can be powered by the solar panels, giving you plenty of options for future gifts. Your dad will love being able to harness the power of the sun on his outdoor adventures, and it’s truly a gift that keeps on giving.
All the charging power in the world won’t help much if the gadgets are exposed to rain, so make sure your dad’s phone or music is protected with the Flap Jacket from Granite Gear. Made specifically for iPhones and iPods, this heavy-duty nylon case features a pocket with a clear vinyl window that allows use of touch screens without taking it out, and the flap serves as a rain fly to block out weather while you use the device. A wide Velcro strap keeps the Flap Jacket securely closed, and it can easily fit in a pants pocket for quick access. That device may be the only thing connecting him to the rest of the world when he’s adventuring in the woods, so help him make sure it’s protected!
