Father's Day Gift Idea: Grown Up Hiking & Travel Gear

Father's Day Gift Idea: Grown Up Hiking & Travel Gear

After Father's Day, there may be some family vacations on the horizon - and no one wants to look like a tourist in those vacation photos. Help dad hit the trail (literal or figurative!) in style with some modern and updated gear!

Clockwise from top left:

Betabrand "The Fixer" coat - A clean and elegant-looking coat with totally cool spy pockets on the inside - perfect for passports, boarding passes, and keeping travel money stashed safe. 

Eddie Bauer Contour Henley - Made with Tencel, so it's cooler than your average henley. Made to move with dad and keep him comfy all summer vaycay.

Icebreaker Cool Lite Shirts - These two shirts have dad covered for casual and smart casual venues on the road with special merino-blend fabric designed to wick moisture and prevent those living-from-a-suitcase odors... 

Kuhl Pants & Shorts - I'm not kidding when I say that, after I bought my husband a pair of Konfidant Air Pants, he threw out all his other pants and bought a drawer full of these! Super lightweight, ventilated, and can pass for regular pants any day of the week. 

Eddie Bauer Voyager II Travex Travel Blazer - When a coat is too much, this blazer can still keep dad's stash safe and secure with inner and outer zippered pockets. Breathable, packable, and sleek enough to dress up slacks and a tee shirt for a casual dinner.

Of course, dad will need some more hard-core gear if he is repelling down the side of a mountain or dropping onto his jet ski from a helicopter, but these items should help keep him comfy and prepared for sightseeing and museum visits! And of course, don't forget the cooling/sun protection basics from last week!

June Gloom?
