The Gear Dad Will Love For Every Activity

The Gear Dad Will Love For Every Activity

June 10, 2020

Merino wool clothing is the perfect gift for the active dad. In addition to being a natural, renewable and biodegradable fabric, Merino wool wicks moisture and is antimicrobial. Incredible breathability means he won't feel stinky or clammy during his favorite activities. It also regulates body temperature to offer year-round comfort.

Here are our favorite Merino wool clothing Father's Day gift options based on various activities. 

My dad loves to            ____      
  
Run/Bike/Backpack/Climb: The Ritual Tee
    

PC: Ian Provo

For the dad seeking a new PB, look no further than the Ritual Tee. This technical workout shirt is ideal for long distance running, biking, backpacking, and high-output activities. The natural Merino tee is strong, yet ultra lightweight so it will keep dad cool and comfortable. The quick-wicking material keeps dad dry, and thoughtful seaming makes for a garment that doesn't chafe during long workouts or when wearing a pack. 

SUP/Hike/Fish: The Solstice Hoodie

PC: Ian Provo

Stay cool, covered and protected with the Solstice Hoodie. This lightweight long-sleeved pullover is naturally 30+UPF (without the use of chemicals) to guard against harmful UV rays, which are amplified when reflected off water and other surfaces. Discreet thumb holes keep the Solstice sleeves in place, a longer hem can be tucked in, and the loose-fitting hood fits perfectly over a hat and can be cinched tight for even more protection - to deter pests like ticks and mosquitoes. In addition, the soft Merino fabric wicks sweat and breathes to regulate temperature - reducing the chance of overheating. It also dries quickly. All this peace-of-mind packs up small and is naturally antibacterial, eliminating the need for frequent washing. 

Travel/Hike/Camp: Men’s Journey Merino Wool T-Shirt

 PC: Minaret Creative

Offering natural UPF protection, the Journey Merino wool t-shirt was featured in Backpacker Magazine’s “The Best Gear for Summer Adventures” and in in Men's Journal, "Odor Eaters: The Ideal Travel Tee." The shirt’s modern cut offers the perfect mix of style and comfort and will keep dad cool and dry all day long. 

Backpack/Ski/Snowboard: Aspect Midweight Merino Wool Base Layers

PC: Minaret Creative

Chilly summer overnights are no match for the Aspect Merino wool base layer tops and bottoms. These are the base layers Powder Magazine included in their round-up, the "Gear You Want On Every Backcountry Hut Trip." Start with a set of these layers for cold-weather activities like skiing and snowboarding for extra warmth and protection against the elements.

Everyday: Men’s Merino Wool Boxer Briefs

The best-selling Ridge Merino boxer briefs are as useful as a daily WFH staple as they are on a multi-day outdoor adventure. Dads are sure to love the versatility of the best-selling durable, soft and comfortable briefs. Now available in a longer, 9 inch inseam.

 

Note: Stock up soon. The shipping deadline to arrive by Father’s Day is 11 am PT, Wednesday, June 17.
