He’s the kind of man who prefers windsurfing to channel surfing. His closet is packed full of Lycra instead of plaid, and he’d much rather hit the hills over the office any day. He calls the gym his second home, and is likely to burn off Father’s Day brunch with a marathon run. If this fitness freak mindset describes your father, HBX has the perfect gifts in store for him. We’ve curated a selection of items that will satiate even the most serious of outdoorsy yearnings.
If your father is a man of the outdoors, he must be properly (and stylishly) outfitted to face the elements. Norse Projects’ minimalist ripstop nylon cap is a lightweight and portable accessory that will allow dad to keep his cool, whereas this Man of Moods down vest is sure to warm him up no matter which peak or glacier he decides to traverse.
Two things are integral to a man’s outdoor experience: food and hydration. We’ve got the latter covered with this aluminium bottle from Penfield, featuring a silver carabiner for easy attachment. As for the former, there’s no better storage solution for all your dad’s protein bars than this reflective pack from Epperson Mountaineering, which not only has a large capacity and multiple external pockets, but is also built with padded straps for comfortable snack transportation.
With the cumbersome cookware and onerous washing up involved, it’s no easy task to cook in the outdoors. However, these lightweight cups from Snow Peak and MiiR are sure to simplify the process. Crafted from titanium, the Snow Peak backpacker’s cup features graduated measurements and a sturdy handle, streamlining cooking and packing activities for dad.
Campfire meals are usually consumed while sitting on the odd rock, but let your nature-loving father dine in style with this camping chair and table set from Carhatt. The ensemble, made in collaboration with Helinox, is crafted from all-black lightweight polyester and aluminium to allow for compact storage and easy carrying. Signature details include two mesh cupholders sewn into the table, allowing dad to refresh with an icy beer campside.
