Why we’d love to have it:

Kentucky may be the bourbon capital of the world, but when it comes to traditional whisky, the West is where it’s at. Pendleton Original is very approachable and a great all-around choice on the sweeter side. It starts with vanilla, honey, butterscotch, and custard on the nose before shifting to a hint of fruit, honey, and spice on your tongue.

White Duck Work Apron

Why we’d love to have it:

Some guys prefer tool belts and other guys prefer aprons. If you’re on the apron side of the argument, you have to check out White Duck’s work apron. Available in brown, tan, or black (we prefer brown), they’re made from 24-oz waxed cotton canvas tough enough for any shop while protecting against sawdust, stains, shop gunk, and more. Three chest pockets and two kangaroo front pockets hold your gear where it’s easy to access. The shoulder straps are adjustable and padded, and there’s a quick-release buckle for the waist strap.

Get it for:

If your Dad loves working in the garage or shop, he can use a White Duck work apron.

If the recreational side of your life involves time on the running paths, take a closer look at Adapt Run insoles. These are specifically designed to flex and move with the natural motion of your foot with each stride while providing incredible comfort despite the impact of running.

Why we’d love to have it:

Klean Kanteen’s Insulated Classic is, well, a classic. The 25-ounce version is capable of keeping liquids hot for 24 hours or cold for 80 hours. The pour-through cap means you don’t have to remove it completely to transfer your drink to a cup. Plus, you have your choice of four colors: brushed, black, porcelain, and marigold.

Better yet, Klean Kanteen is shifting focus on their materials selection, and this bottle along with others is now made with 90% recycled steel!

Kershaw Cargo Pocket Knife

Why we’d love to have it:

The first time I picked up the Kershaw Cargo pocket knife, I was in love. It’s a lightweight design with a clip point D2 steel blade settling into a glass-filled nylon handle. There’s no assist, but the thumb studs make it easy to open with one hand. What sold it for me is the mid-lock. This knife is a wonderful combination of modern materials and a design reminiscent of Grandpa’s pocket knife.

Get it for:

Every Dad needs a pocket knife. Those that already have one need at least one more.

The blades are super-sharp out of the box and you can forget keeping AAAs on hand because this model has a lithium-ion battery.

Truewerk Cloud Shirt

Why we’d love to have it:

Pressure Washer PSI That's Too Good to Be True? It Probably is!

Summer is here and Truewerk has you covered! Available in short sleeve or long sleeve, the Cloud shirt is incredibly lightweight, breathable, and fast-drying. We’re particularly fond of the use of snaps instead of buttons. Best of all, it still blocks 98% of the sun’s rays from reaching your skin. You can get it in three colors: white, deep grey, or our favorite, ice blue.

5.11 Rapid L2 Flashlight

Why we’d love to have it:

We’ve owned several 5.11 flashlights and love the durability. One of the newest lines is the Rapid series, featuring three sizes and outputs to choose from. Of the three, the Rapid L2 has the highest output at 523 lumens and features a 61-lumen low plus a strobe function. Compact at less than 5 inches long, it uses two CR123 batteries for power and is easy to carry as part of your EDC loadout.

MEATER Plus Wireless Meat Thermometer

Why we’d love to have it:

Getting perfect cooking results has a lot to do with prep and cooking control, but take that brisket off too early or too soon, and the rest doesn’t really matter. Grab a MEATER Plus wireless thermometer to make sure you get Pro-level results and a line of neighbors at your door every time you cook. It takes the original MEATER and extends the range up to 165 feet with a Bluetooth repeater. From there, just keep an eye on how things are progressing with your phone and know exactly what cooking temperature you’re holding and the internal temperature of your meat.

Best Tool Gifts for Father’s Day 2022

$100 – $250

Gerber Dual Force Multi-Tool

Why we’d love to have it:

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 it many onboard tools, this one also sports the offset driver we first saw on the Gerber Center-Drive multi-tool.

Get it for:

Father’s Day and multi-tools go hand-in-hand. Get this one for any Dad on your list.

Kodiak Quicktrail Nano Work Shoe

Why we’d love to have it:

Not everyone needs or wants a work boot. Work shoes are often more comfortable and lighter weight. Kodiak’s Quicktrail Nano has an athletic-inspired design with a composite Nano safety toe. Underneath the breathable upper, there’s a ComfortZone Lite footbed. Flipping to the underside, you’ll find a slip-resistant, non-marking outsole that’s great for concrete floors. Plus, the laces are made from recycled plastic.

Get it for:

Ridgid 18V Brushless 1/2-Inch Ratchet R866012

Why we’d love to have it:

Cordless ratchets are great for helping you tighten and loosen fasteners without the need for a hand tool or the risk of over-torquing. Ridgid has three brushless options with strong performance and we prefer the 1/2-inch model with its 60 ft-lbs of torque. There’s also a 3/8-inch and a 1/4-inch with increasing speeds and decreasing torque.

Get it for:

If the Dad on your list turns a wrench frequently, this is a great gift!

Bora Centipede 4 x 2 Workbench Set CK28STB

Why we’d love to have it:

Whether it’s your garage, shop, or work truck, space is at a premium. The Bora Centipede is your best friend as a portable workspace. The support collapses in to take up about as much space as a camping chair while the tabletop folds to fit nicely in a carry case. Toss the clamps in their bag you have a nice tidy system. The best part? It’s strong enough to hold 2500 pounds!

Get it for:

This is a great gift for any Dad who enjoys DIY projects or needs work support professionally.

Makita 18V LXT Sub-Compact Oscillating Multi-Tool XMT04

Why we’d love to have it:

Don’t knock it ’till you try it! Makita’s 18V LXT Sub-Compact oscillating multi-tool may look different than what you’re used to. Its excellent performance is almost overshadowed by ridiculously low vibration. Plus, it uses a Starlock accessory interface.

Stiletto 15-Ounce Titanium Framing Hammer TB III

Why we’d love to have it:

There’s absolutely no question in our minds that titanium hammers are the way to go. Lighter than steel without giving up striking force, they’re the creme de la creme. For framers and general use, check out Stiletto’s 15-ounce TB III. It has an 18-inch titanium handle and hits with the power of a 28-ounce steel hammer with 10 times less shock. The head includes a magnetic nail starter and a side nail puller. Plus, it’s available with a smooth or milled face.

Get it for:

EGO Cordless Misting Fan

Why we’d love to have it:

EGO 18-Inch Battery-Powered Misting Fan Review

Forget swamp coolers—EGO’s 56V cordless misting fan is what all the cool kids are using this summer! Drawing directly from a bucket using a siphon hose, you can switch between constant and intermittent misting, or just use it as a fan. Either way, its 6 speed settings can keep you cool sitting next to the fan or up to 25 feet away and it’s remarkably quiet for its size.

But wait, there’s more—you can take the light off of the top and use it as an independent work light to reach more confined spaces!

Filson Ripstop Nylon Pullman Bag

Why we’d love to have it:

The Filson Pullman starts with 500D Cordura, uses a ripstop stitch, and then double treats the bag for water resistance. In form, you can carry it by the handles, on your shoulder, or use the backpack straps. Functionally, it’s a well-developed 36-liter bag that’s perfect for travel with clothing straps and two lid pockets on the inside. Exterior front and rear pockets keep your most essential items close at hand. For Dads who travel by air frequently, it’s carry-on friendly at 18 x 13 1/2 x 9 inches.
