Dad can ALWAYS use another flashlight. It’s a guaranteed fail-safe gift. One of my favorite lights that a carry every day is the Streamlight Wedge. It’s 300 lumens and runs 3 hours on a charge. Also capable of  1000 Lumen THRO Mode. It’s USB-C Rechargeable and completely waterproof. The best feature in my opinion is the unique form factor that is designed specifically for comfortable pocket carry. $100 from StreamlightClick Here to Buy

Bridle leather is traditionally used to make saddles and horse tack so it’s super durable and long-lasting.

If Dad doesn’t have a chest pack for his binoculars, this is a no-brainer gift.

Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpener

If you’re really good at sharpening knives, you’ll most likely use an India whet or oilstone. My whetstone sharpening skills are abysmal, so I use the Worksharp Knife and Tool sharpener to make up for my ineptitude. It’s amazingly easy to use and will hone your hunting or kitchen knives to a razor edge. If your dad doesn’t already have one, he’ll absolutely love this. $70 from Work Sharp. – Click Here to Buy

Dad can always use another compass. This M-3 by Suunto is one of our favorites. It’s perfect for use with a map with its transparent baseplate and built-in magnifying glass. The adjustable declination makes it simple to adjust for use anywhere in the northern hemisphere. When the sun goes down, the luminous bezel helps you see where you need to go. $30 by Suunto  – Click Here to Buy

Boyt Harness Signature Series Shotgun Case with Pocket

Boyt Harness sets the standard for high-quality gun cases.
