Shop Backcountry for Father’s Day, because the last thing your dad wants this year is a tie. It’s not a sale, but some items are marked down up to 25%.
Gifting for dad doesn’t need to be difficult. In fact, you can get in on the fun if you play your cards right.
From June 10 through Father’s Day (that’s June 20, FYI), Backcountry has curated gift ideas to help get you in that frame of mind. Below you’ll find just some of the gear and goods that dad can use on his own or bigger gifts that the whole family can enjoy.
And since Father’s Day is also the start of summer this year, we’re leaning into cookouts, camping, and other outdoor activities.
Backcountry Father’s Day Gear
YETI Rambler Colster: $25
The latest colors come to the Rambler Colsters, the YETI take on koozies. These use double-wall insulation to keep drinks cold made from dishwasher-safe stainless steel and have a twist-off gasket to adjust it to hold bottles or 12-ounce cans.
The more time spent getting after it, the more it pays off to seek comfort in a chair when you’re done. The Sunset Camp Chair has a high back to let dad lean back and even rest his head on the stuff sack, which straps on to use as a pillow. Nylon fabric and DAC aluminum poles will hold him steady and withstand some rigorous use as well.
Columbia Vitesse Mid Outdry Hiking Shoe — Men’s: $89 (25% Off)
A waterproof hybrid hiker designed to offer protection in most hiking conditions while keeping the weight down. Columbia built the shoes to have sneaker-like cushioning and energy return. And the brand added an Omni-Grip rubber sole to help add traction on wet surfaces.
High Camp Flasks Firelight Flask: $85-125
For dads who want to enjoy drinks by the campfire, this sturdy flask will hold several servings and tumblers for two. The double-wall insulation will help hold temperatures for up to 24 hours, and the plug cap has a leak-free silicone seal.
Plus, the flask’s tumblers magnetically attach at either end when not in use.
Backcountry Empire Bike Short: $80 (20% Off)
The Empire shorts are a Backcountry exclusive, made for technical mountain biking. Four-way stretch construction targets increased mobility, zippered pockets provide extra security, and the materials and treatment work to resist abrasions and shed mud. Bike-friendly touches include laser-cut ventilation holes and a silicone gripper waistband.
Ross Evolution LTX Fly Reel: $385-395
The latest generation of the Ross Evolution LTX Reel purports to be a stronger, enhanced version of the brand’s LT and Evolution R reels. The aluminum reel’s disc drag is four times stronger than previous versions and has a bell-shaped arbor that self-levels the line.
Under Armour Sportstyle Left Chest Short-Sleeve Shirt: $19 (Up to 25% Off)
This all-around short-sleeve T-shirt is made from cotton and polyester (60%/40%) for a mix of comfort against the skin, stretch, and wicking properties. It has a fuller cut to be roomy during workouts, hikes, and everyday activities.
Hold court outdoors around this adjustable table with three self-stabilizing chairs to sit steadily on uneven ground. The Lounge Table is made of bamboo and folds down to carry in an included stuff sack, as do the chairs.
Haul drinks and keep them cold on your summer adventures with this zip-top backpack cooler. It holds 20 cans and ice inside, as well as daisy chains for carrying extras and quick-grab handles. Of course, the leakproof design can carry wet clothes or gear, and then be rinsed or wiped out after.
Traeger Scout Grill: $300
To be clear, this grill is a 45-pound wood pellet stove with a digital controller and meat probe. In other words, you’ll just as likely use it for backyard cookouts and tailgating as car camping.
You can slow cook up to 4 pounds of meat for hours on the 184-inch cooking surface. (That’s 10 hot dogs, 6 burgers, or a tenderloin). The grill is also porcelain-coated to prevent food residues from sticking.
Backcountry x Simms Flyweight Technical Shell Jacket: $240 (Up to 20% Off)
Backcountry collaborated with Simms to co-design this waterproof breathable shell using GORE-TEX Paclite Plus fabric. From rainy treks to all-day fishing trips, this shell has a chest pocket for securing tippets or a line cutter, and a carabiner loop for securing other gear. When it’s dry, the shell packs away into its own hand pocket.
This one looks like fun for the whole family. The Takibi Fire & Grill will live in your backyard when it’s not car camping. Despite its size, it can be packed up and moved, thanks to its collapsible design and stainless steel parts. As far as cooking goes, the grate can be adjusted among three positions from the open flame below.
