Gerber Dual Force Multi-Tool

Why we’d love to have it:

Gerber Dual Force Multi-Tool

One of the biggest complaints we have about multi-tools is the pliers just don’t have the strength to do the job sometimes. That changes with the Gerber Dual Force. Boasting twice the jaw strength and force, the slip-joint design with aggressive teeth is far better for getting a grip on stubborn nuts and bolts. Among its many onboard tools, this one also sports the offset driver we first saw on the Gerber Center-Drive multi-tool. It’s also now available in an all-black color scheme.

Dometic GO 50L Hard Storage Box

Dometic GO 50L Hard Storage Box

Plastic storage containers are fine for some things, but there’s a reason your mission-critical gear is called “critical” and you don’t want to leave that to chance.

Chirp Wheel Pro

Why we’d love to have it:

Chirp Wheel Pro

There are all kinds of massagers and foam rollers on the market, but targeting back pain is tough. The main reason is that you risk injuring yourself if you put too much pressure on your spine. The Chirp Wheel Pro solves that problem. Similar to a foam roller in its basic design, there’s a channel running through the center to take the pressure off of your spine while massing your back muscles. The Pro model adds vibration to the mix, driving the relief deeper. The wheel is 5 inches wide, allowing you to run from your lower back, between your should blades and all the way up to your neck. If you’re worried about weight, the Chirp Wheel Pro can support up to 500 pounds.

Orvis Trekkage LT Adventure Briefcase

Why we’d love to have it:

Orvis’ Trekkage LT Adventure Briefcase is special for several reasons. It starts with a 600D CORDURA re/cor RPET—a material made from 100% recycled high-tenacity polyester yarn created from discarded bottles and packaging. High-wear areas get an extra-tough 800D nylon reinforcement. The material gets a TPU water-resistant coating.

From there, it’s about the design. It’s a 22-liter bag that’s carry-on friendly for flights. Inside, the organization is fantastic.

ICEMULE R-Jaunt 20L Backpack Cooler

Why we’d love to have it:

ICEMULE R-Jaunt 20L Backpack Cooler

ICEMULE made a name for itself with its Jaunt series backpack coolers. A fold-down closure seals in the cold and even air, so it floats (though we wouldn’t recommend it as your primary life jacket).

Now the line takes its next big step forward with the R-Jaunt made from eco-friendly recycled PET fabric. The material is post-consumer plastic, mainly from water bottles. With its larger 20-liter capacity, it holds enough to enjoy a weekend trip while remaining a manageable size and loaded weight.

Grayl UltraPress Titanium Purifier

Why we’d love to have it:

Grayl UltraPress Titanium Purifier

Forget everything you know about field water purifiers—the Grayl UltraPress Titanium Purifier is something much better. Filtering out viruses, bacteria, and chemicals while improving the taste and smell of water, you fill a base container and push the top container to filter water. There’s no sucking through a straw or filtering painfully slow volumes. In about 10 seconds, you have a full 16.9-ounce bottle that’s ready for drinking and you can add a drink mix to the filtered water if you like. Each filter lasts roughly 300 fills, so there’s a lot of time between cartridge changes.

It gets better, though. Thanks to its CP4 Grade 1 titanium construction and butterfly handles, the base container is fire-friendly so you can heat liquids or cook with it. A D-ring loop is perfect for tying paracord to and lowering to a water source that’s out of reach. Sweetening the deal, you get Grayl’s Titanium Dining Set with your purchase. Just add it to the cart when you add the Titanium UltraPress and you’ll get it for no additional charge!

Get it for:

If Dad’s work or play takes him to even mildly remote locations, he’ll appreciate the convenience and versatility of a Grayl UltraPress Purifier.

It has 600 ft-lbs of fastening torque and 750 ft-lbs of breakaway torque, plus assist modes for both forward and reverse.

Why we’d love to have it:

Maven make high-quality optics and their business model allows them to deliver a higher value than its competitors in the same quality class. The Maven C.2 is part of the mid-range line that offers exceptional quality for the price point. While the premium B-series can give you higher optical clarity, the C.2’s value makes it a perfect choice for those who want high performance without the high price. Available in either 7x or 10x magnifications, the objective lens is 28mm, making for a compact set of binoculars with fantastic daylight image quality.
