Father's Day Gifts for the Active Dad

Father's Day Gifts for the Active Dad

Today's dad is constantly on the move. From the gym to kids' soccer practice to the office, there's not much time to think about what to wear. Ridge Merino has you covered with tons of clothing options for rad dads on the move.

In addition to being natural, renewable and biodegradable, Merino wool wicks moisture and is antimicrobial and odor-resistant. It breathes well so dads won't feel gross or clammy, and it regulates body temperature to provide year-round comfort, regardless of how hot or cold it is outside.

Here are some of our favorite Merino wool Father's Day gifts.

A Merino Wool Polo

Our go-to Father's Day gift is our Journey Polo, which is made with the same Merino wool fabric blend as our best-selling Journey Tee but in a sharp polo style. You can't go wrong with this odor-resistant, moisture-wicking, temperature-regulating polo.

A Merino Wool T-Shirt

If your dad's t-shirt drawer is overflowing with cotton tees, it's time for an upgrade to Merino. Our ultimate tee, the Journey, was named one of "The Top Sweat-Wicking, BO-Killing Merino Wool T-Shirts" by Men's Journal. It's the ultimate t-shirt for any type of activity and is available as a V-Neck or Crew Neck.

If your dad tends to overheat or needs a go-to shirt for hot, humid weather, he'll love our naturally-cooling Merino + Tencel Tee. If he loves to run, grab our new ultralight Pursuit Merino Tee for him. Not sure what he needs? Check out our t-shirt comparison guide.

A Dressy Merino Wool Button Down

Dressing up doesn't have to be uncomfortable. Our Merino wool button downs keep dads comfortable and odor-free no matter where the day takes them. Just released this year, our High Country Button Down (pictured) is incredibly lightweight, super packable and wrinkle-resistant, making it great to pack for summer travel.

If your dad needs a winter/cooler weather flannel, consider the Hammil Flannel. It's a heavier fabric that can be worn as a standalone shirt or as a layer over a tee or other base layers. Even though it has a formal look, people love it as a skiing layer too.

A Comfortable Sweatshirt

You can't beat the softness and breathability of our Natural Tencel Crew Sweatshirt. Our Natural Collection keeps you cool on warmer days thanks to Tencel, a natural wood pulp fiber that pairs beautifully with Merino wool. This sweatshirt looks nice enough to wear to work or around town but also works amazingly well if you end up running, kicking the soccer ball or taking an impromptu hike wearing it.

Merino Wool Basics

Dads are often overdue for new essentials like underwear and socks. Our newest Merino wool underwear come in several styles: regular (pictured above), long, relaxed fit, and briefs.

You can't go wrong with Merino wool socks either. If your dad is an avid skier, get him stoked for next ski season with the super lightweight Ritter Merino Socks or the midweight Banked Ski Socks.

If he's a hiker, he'll love the Minaret Hiking Socks (recently featured in Forbes), the thicker Owens Midweight Hiking Socks or the low cut Rock Creek Socks (pictured above).
