Father’s Day is almost here and what better way to celebrate than with another EPIC giveaway. Dads everywhere work so hard to provide for their families or stay home and watch their kids. Outdoor dads often go one step further and help connect their children with the environment and adventure. But we all know that once we have kids, getting high quality gear for yourself often does not happen. I connected with 5 brands that I think you will love for an Epic Gear Up Dad for Father’s Day Giveaway (May 31st- June 11th, 2017).
*I was given product to facilitate this post. All of these companies and people were sought out by me because I love what they stand for and their products. All views are 100% my own.
I first heard of the brand Fjallraven when my husband, 7 month old daughter and I were living in Copenhagen, Denmark. Their signature backpacks were everywhere and soon became an obsession that inspired me to learn more about this ultra trendy outdoor company. Fjallraven creates high quality outdoor gear while being socially and environmentally responsible. They are based out of Sweden and opened their first store in Canada in 2014, just after we had returned from our Scandinavian adventure.
Spoil Dad with a Fjallraven Jacket
For the Dad that loves to hike with their kids, spoil him with the High Coast Wind Jacket. This lightweight jacket compacts small so that you can easily find space for it in your bag alongside all the extra kid gear you now need to bring on hikes. We all know how hard it can be to carry everything you need for the kids, let alone yourself. Now Dad can be prepared for less ideal weather while adventuring with the kids!
Keen hiking shoes are known for their high quality sandals and hiking shoes. Initially the company became known for their innovative sandals that also protected the toes in 2003. I can remember playing rugby in highschool and my coach raving about his new Keen shoes that he had bought! However, the company Keen is not just about shoes and sandals. They started their sustainable journey in 2004 when they pulled their entire advertisement budget of $1 million and diverted the money to disaster relief and causes that were important to them.
Give Dad Tough Hikers
For Father’s Day give dad some tough hikers and choose between their variety of styles. One of their newest designs is the Versago and has an ultra light feel perfect for hiking with the kids in the mountains or spending the day at the park in the city.
It was important to my husband to find stylish outdoor clothing brands that are eco-friendly. The brand Ecoths is the men’s collection of Aventura and each garment contains organic cotton. What I love even more is their commitment to the fight against hunger. For every garment sold they donate a meal to the sales rep foodbank of choice in the United States. With over 200,000 meals delivered they are putting their stamp on sustainability.
Deck Dad in Plaid
This summer deck dad in plaid so he can BBQ in style. With different styles of shirts and plaid to choose from you will find something that he loves. The Ecoths Somersett shirt in Wasabi is made of 100% organic cotton yarn dye with a built in microfiber clean cloth. Quality. Rugged wear at its finest.
The Catalyst Case is perfect for the adventuring dad that loves to bring technology along whether it is to capture the epic moment or listen to music. Their high quality cases are meant for adventure and are waterproof and drop proof. They have a model for most apple products including a case for the Apple watch.
Protect Dad’s Devices
This Father’s Day protect dad’s Iphone 7 with a Iphone 7 Catalyst Case. This case is catalyst’s newest model with advanced technology that allows them to be 100% waterproof up to 33ft!! Most recreational divers do not dive past 40 ft which means that your iphone just got a whole lot more versatile. Capture those epic moments with your kids whether it is up on a mountain or scuba diving in the tropics.
Colter Co. is all about adventure and outdoor exploring. They want to make sure that outdoor skills are not forgotten among future generations. Colter Co. has created an innovative yet rad way to help you learn skills like tying knots and learning about the stars.
Give Dad Swag and Survival Skills
Gear up dad with a 3 pack bandanna set. He can choose which ones he wants to wear or attach to his bag. If he needs to tie up a canoe he can check his Know Your Ropes bandanna. During the day he can teach the kids how to play checkers on the Cabin Fever bandanna and at nighttime stay up stargazing with the glow in the dark Stargazer bandanna. Even better is that they are made and printed in the USA.
