Since we are just about to hit the road for our “On the Road with Baby Gizmo” travel video series and Father’s Day is right around the corner, we thought it would be a perfect time to highlight some great gift ideas for the outdoorsman!
We are loading up our family of 5 in a travel trailer camper and traveling the country for 2 months this summer, so Dad Gizmo will be outside A LOT! Yep, he is usually what I’d call an outdoorsman, but this summer he’ll take it to a whole new level.
We’ll be camping, hiking, biking, beaching (is that a word?!?), mountain climbing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, and more this summer and Dad Gizmo has been preparing for this trip for quite a while. We have picked out a bunch of really cool gift ideas that we know that the outdoorsman dad would love!
So, that’s how this GIFT GUIDE started out – a guide for the “outdoorsman.” Yet, Dad Gizmo couldn’t stop picking out great gifts that he thought you need to consider for Father’s Day so we turned it into the “Father’s Day Gift Guide for All Types of Dads.”
Mountainsmith Cooloir 36 Soft Cooler has many cool features that were unexpected. The first thing we really liked about the cooler was the light weight when it is empty, but the ability to hold 36 cans of your favorite beverage. The second thing I liked was that the cooler didn’t slide around in the back of our truck or car. Plastic coolers always slide around a lot — especially if you add the weight of ice/beverages.
Watch Dad Gizmo’s video review below:
How awesome would it be for dad to take Man’s Best Friend on your bike outings? The Burley Tail Wagon dog bike trailer is the perfect way to include furry family members in your outdoor adventures. The trailer features a flip-down tailgate for quick loading and a suspended, removable floor for easy cleaning. Optional stroller kits are also available for go-anywhere convenience.
This is no ordinary duffle bag. This is one for the outdoorsman, the manly man, the man who likes to bring all the things.
The Mountainsmith Dump Trunk Hauler combines your favorite features from a standard duffel, travel bag, and storage cube. Its molded, water resistant bottom panel has a clamshell opening to keep your muddy, snowy ski boots or waders separate from the rest of your gear. Its die-cut ventilation holes make for more breathable and cleaner boot storage. The wide mouth main pocket swallows gear for skiing, fishing, climbing, surfing, and more. Once packed, grab the padded shoulder strap or deploy the backpack strap system for easy carry from the garage to the car to your next adventure.
