Father's Day gifts for the outdoor enthusiast
Outdoor enthusiast: Coleman family size rugged LED lantern
When Dad is parked in front of a campfire more often than a big screen, you know he feels great in the great outdoors. He’ll appreciate gifts that bring more comfort and convenience to the family campout or any of his solo treks. — Shannon McCarthy
Dad’s gonna need a bigger light, and Coleman’s got it: a water-resistant and ruggedly made lantern that is bright enough for the whole family to see by. Powerful LED bulbs are dial dimmable, and shine on battery power for 78 hours on high or 147 hours on dim.
Wenzel hiking pole
Kohl's: Wenzel hiking pole
Dad’s trail-trekking days get a boost with this hiking pole from Wenzel. It features telescoping sections that adjust to his height, an ergonomic handle for comfort and a design that absorbs shocks and provides a steadying influence. Post hike, it folds up for total tote-ability.
Coleman oversize quad chair with cooler
After long hours of conquering the wilderness (or just setting up the family’s notoriously tricky tent), Dad deserves a suitable place to relax, kick back and enjoy a cold one. This multitasking portable chair provides a comfortably padded place to sit, and has mesh storage pockets and an attached mini cooler.
FILA Sport polarized wrap sunglasses
If Dad digs the outdoors, then he’ll need some serious sun protection. Father’s Day is a great time to upgrade his sunnies and keep his peepers healthy with 99% UVA and UVB protection, which is just what this super stylish pair from FILA Sport offers. Polarized lenses keep the glare out.
Coleman CPX6 portable electronics charger
If you know a father who really wants to get away from it all, this isn’t the gift for him. For all the others toting along a smartphone, MP3 player or other personal electronic device, this rugged portable charger from Coleman is genius. Both a DC and USB plug keep Dad buzzing.
Protocol 12-in-1 multi-tool flashlight
This cool tool is great for any camper, hiker or biker, but it makes an especially good Father’s Day gift for a fisherman: A hook disgorger and fish scaler are included in the array of fold-out tools at the end of this clever flashlight. There’s also a red emergency light option for safety’s sake.
ASICS Spry jacket
Kohl's: ASICS Spry jacket
Gadgets and accessories aren’t the only gifting options for the outdoor enthusiast dad. Consider a high-quality jacket that looks as good as it performs. A bold reflective racing stripe equals after-dark visibility, while the shell’s wind- and water-resistance keeps Dad warm and dry.
Coleman Fold N Go portable gas grill
Grill master, meet outdoorsman: With a compact, lightweight gas grill from Coleman, Dad’s superior grill skills can be enjoyed far from home. This portable puppy folds up smaller than a briefcase and starts simply – no matches and no fuss – with just the push of a button.
