There’s a saying, “There’s only one best dog in the world, and everybody has it.”
The same could be said for dads. Most people believe they have the best dad in the world. So why not show the world that he deserves the best?
We’ve searched hundreds of items for the dad who loves to camp, and found three perfect gifts. Once he has them, he won’t know how he camped without them:
This tent is a Sportsman’s Guide best seller, and with good reason. It’s ridiculously easy to set up, with just one center pole (center height is 6’6”), and a system of threaded guy lines and stakes for stabilizing the teepee shape. Its 10′ x 10′ footprint creates room for six inside.
The seams are factory-sealed so that the tent is waterproof. It even has weatherproof windows, so you can have light inside and visibility to the outside, even when it’s raining. When the windows are zipped open, you’re protected from bugs by no-see-um mesh. The bathtub-style floor also offers protection against the elements.
Tall dads will really enjoy being able to stand up straight inside the tent. Despite its roominess, it packs down into a 30″ x 8″ x 8″ size, and weighs just 14 pounds, three ounces.
Every inch of this boot is loaded with features to please all hikers, whether they’re out for a short hike with the family or trekking long distance. Let’s start with the sole, designed to provide outstanding traction outside and inside, support in the form of an air cushion for stability and a compression-molded foot frame (boots are available in medium and wide widths) for cushioning.
The boots are waterproof thanks to an impermeable membrane specially designed to seal out water yet let moisture (sweat) escape. The toe bumper will protect toes from rocks and roots, and the bellows-style tongue keeps dirt and other debris from getting inside the boot.
Guide Gear Zero Gravity Folding Chair
This chair is loaded with features and travels easily (folds flat, weighs just 22 pounds). Probably the best feature is its comfort, with adjustable pillows built into it and a snap-on drink or snack table. The “chair” floats on a rugged steel frame. You can also get this chair in XL, which holds a person weighing up to 350 pounds. All models have locking levers, which prevent the chair from folding up accidentally.
