Father's Day Gift Ideas for Outdoor Loving Dads

Father’s Day is just around the corner (June 16!) but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with gift ideas for every type of outdoor-loving Dad!

Whether he’s into mountain biking, camping, hiking, trail running or cruising around town, we’ve got gift ideas for all his favourite activities:


For the Bike Dad

The Everyday Carry Tool System by One Up

The ultimate spare kit for anyone who hates riding with a backpack, the sleek EDC tool system can fit right inside the steering tube, and contains all the essentials for trailside maintenance, including hex keys, torx, a tire lever, a chain breaker, spare quick link storage, a flathead screwdriver, spoke keys, a spare chainring bolt, a CO2 cartridge, and more! This is an awesome gift for an avid biker that can be upgraded by adding the EDC pump (so now you have a gift idea for his birthday or Christmas too!)

EVOC Enduro Touch Gloves

Ah, that new glove feeling. The EVOC Enduro Touch glove is lightweight, breathable and durable as well as touch screen compatible. Designed with ambitious trail use in mind, the Enduro Touch glove features strategically placed vents that make it a great choice for summer riding, and the neoprene cuff ensures a snug fit. Spoil Dad with some fresh mitts!


A New Mountain Bike

If you’re not quite willing to break the bank on a brand new 2019 bike, there are lots of in-store deals to be found at GearHub - all of our 2018 bikes are currently on sale at 20% off, and our consignment section is always full of a rotating selection of killer deals!


For the Camping Dad

The Go Growler by Stanley

Stanley Go GrowlerDouble walled with the classic Stanley cold-rolled steel outside and a smooth ceramic interior, the Go Growler holds 64oz (or 1.89L) of ice-cold, leak-proof, and clean-tasting beer with no metal taste or smell, and is BPA-free and dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. It keeps beverages cold for 24+ hours, and comes with Stanly’s lifetime warranty. Combine it with a 12-fill gift card from Fernie Brewing Co and you just might make him the happiest Dad in town! 

The River Cowboy Hat by Flylow

This wide-brimmed straw hat offers ample sun protection for lake days and river floats, and the handy chin strap keeps things secure on windy days. And maybe most importantly, the “Ski Bum” tag helps let everyone know that even though he’s trying to love summer, he’s really just counting the days until ski season returns.


The Camtrax 3-in-1 Hatchet/Folding Saw/Hammer by Camillus

Kick his campfire building skills up a notch with the ultimate 3-in-one tool. The Camtrax is a hatchet, hammer, and saw all at once, and there is no wood in existence that it can’t handle. He’ll be happily hacking away.


For the Hiking Dad

Terra Pants by Montane

The Terra pants are the full package - comfortable, lightweight, highly-breathable, extremely durable and weather resistant. Their small pack size, reinforced knees, seat and ankles, and quick-dry properties are just some of the features that make these pants a great choice for a variety of outdoor sports. These are store owner Mark Hall’s “favourite pants of all time” and he is a confirmed outdoor-loving Dad!

Forge S GTX Hiking Boots by Tecnica

Tecnica may be better known for their ski boots, but they made major waves in the hiking industry when they introduced the Forge series - the world’s first heat-mouldable hiking boot. These boots are custom thermo-formed to fit your foot, just like ski boots have been doing for years, for maximum comfort and minimum blisters. The Forge S is a fully synthetic boot designed to meet the demands of serious trekkers, no matter the terrain.

Safety first!


For the Runner Dad

This versatile hydration pack can be easily used for mountain biking and hiking as well!

Vertex No Show Merino Running Socks by Darn Tough

Darn Tough is known for their high-quality durable merino wool socks and the Vertex No Show running socks are no exception. Designed with a streamlined fit, these lightweight socks feature ultra-light cushioning for maximum comfort and seamless construction to reduce hotspots and blisters.

Coda Cap by Montane

For the Townie-Loving Dad

Bicycle Wine Rack by Oopsmark

This leather bicycle wine rack is handmade in Montreal (of course) and will let him easily bring a bottle of wine wherever his townie can go! Hidden clamps hold the bottle securely, while brass fasteners give it an antique look and feel. Afternoon wine sipping sesh in the Annex park anyone?
