12 Awesome Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Every Dad’s Carry

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and one of the best ways you can show your appreciation for everything he’s done for you is to gift him something that’s not only unique, but something that’d be proud to own and excited to actually use. EDC gear is perfect for that, since every time he uses the gift, he’s reminded of you and the thought you put into giving him something more than just a standard greeting card. To make your search easy for you, we’ve put together this list of great EDC options for Father’s Day gifts, many of them with discount codes so you can save a bit as well.

Tactile Turn Bolt Action Pen

If you’re looking to gift your dad a high-quality everyday carry pen that writes well while adding a touch of class to his EDC ensemble, look no further than Tactile Turn’s line of beautiful bolt-action writing implements. As the name implies, these pens feature a spring-loaded bolt-action mechanism for deploying the ink cartridge for writing. It’s a smooth, satisfying way of actuating the pen that your dad can fidget with all day. Each pen is available in three different lengths, and four premium body options: titanium, copper, bronze, and zirconium. To truly make a Tactile Turn Bolt Action Pen his own, you can opt for custom clip engraving and upgrades to the bolt to give your gift a personal flair. And with its American-made precision and lifetime warranty, your dad will be able to enjoy this pen for years to come.

Leatherman FREE T and K Series Multi-tools

If your father is the kind of guy who carries a multi-tool but wishes the one he carries has a better knife, a gift of either a Leatherman “T” or “K” series multi-tool is a great choice, especially now that they’re available in brand-new exciting colorways in 2020. All the tools deploy one-handed thanks to the FREE’s magnetic architecture and cam lock system, making them buttery smooth to open, locked in place while in use, and as easy to close up when you’re finished with your tasks. The T series features a more traditional tool design while the K series brings useful tools like a pair of spring-loaded scissors and screwdrivers to a large 420HC blade folding knife.

GRIP6 Workbelt

This Father’s Day, give your dad a gift of a new belt that’s built to last, like GRIP6’s line of Workbelts. They’re constructed from Mil-Spec nylon fiber woven to a tensile-strength rated to withstand up to 2000 pounds of force, and precision CNC-laser cut T6061 aerospace grade aluminum buckles that close securely while keeping things lightweight.

Stanley CERAMIVAC 24oz Bottle

If your dad has been using the same old coffee travel mug for decades now, do him a favor and upgrade it to a Stanley CERAMIVAC Go Bottle. It features a unique double-wall construction with a ceramic finish over stainless steel for the 100% BPA free inner chamber, eliminating off-flavors from metal contact and operating much like a traditional ceramic mug. But unlike a traditional ceramic mug, this will keep liquids hot for 9 hours and cold for up to 50, and your dad can run around with it throughout the day without leaving a huge mess everywhere he goes (coffee stains are hard to clean up after all). For convenience, the stowaway carry loop allows for both easy access and storage on gear. The Go Bottle is available in three different capacities: 16, 24, and 36oz, and unlike other vacuum-insulated containers these are designed to be dishwasher safe. For a limited time you can save up to 25% off on Stanley’s site with no code needed, so pick up one (or more) of these bottles now while you have the chance.

Dango M-Series Wallet

Your dad probably wouldn’t splurge on a high quality wallet himself, but he sure would appreciate an upgrade from his bulky leather billfold if it were gifted to him. Dango Products makes EDC wallets that aren’t just practically bombproof, but they’re unique, stylish, and can do way more than hold his cash and cards. The M-Series Maverick Wallet is a great pick as it can also double as an ID badge holder for your dad to flex with at work. Its base is CNC-machined from lightweight but sturdy 6061 aluminum, and the rest of the wallet's construction and assembly is made in the USA. There are several renditions of this wallet, which speak to the modularity of this system, and some even include a bifold level of capacity in its easily-carried form factor. All of these wallets are secure against RFID theft, and they hold between 8-16 standard sized payment, credit, and identification cards on a rail system that’s easily accessed. The Tactical and Spec Ops variants of the wallet include built in mult-tool functions as well, for added versatility.

For a limited time, you can save 20% off Dango Products’ entire store, so you can save on getting your dad a gift for Father’s Day and perhaps pick up some much-needed additions to your own EDC as well. Make sure to use code FD20 on checkout and buy your gifts today.

Work Sharp Benchstone Knife Sharpener

If your dad’s already got an impressive collection of knives, maybe instead of gifting him another knife, gift him a proper knife sharpener instead. The Work Sharp Benchstone system is one of the best gifts you can give him to ensure his knives get the maintenance and care they need. The bench stone system offers an easy way to leverage whetstones for sharpening, with three different grits that let you touch up a blade to a really keen edge and blade angle guides that make accomplishing that goal an easy task.

Thyrm PyroVault

Your dad might already have his favorite flip lighter for his personal use, but you can help him level it up with the Thyrm PyroVault. The Thyrm PyroVault features an extremely durable, heat-resistant polymer enclosure sized to accommodate inserts including the ubiquitous fluid-powered Zippo versions and most butane torch upgrades. Its aggressive grip surfaces and a spring-loaded latch make for easy and slightly addictive one-handed operation. And unlike a traditional flip lighter, the PyroVault’s o-ring seal helps to keep the elements out and it also minimizes fuel evaporation. Giving him this upgraded shell makes his lighter a much more worthy companion for his outdoor excursions that’s less likely to run out of fuel when you're out in the field. The PyroVault also adds one of the most conspicuously absent features on a lighter: a pocket clip that's also designed to attach to MOLLE/PALS webbing he might have on his tactical bags and gear. And with five different colorways available, you can pick the one that’s most suited for your dad.

Deep Blue Daynight PC Tritium Diver

You can give your dad a nice wristwatch for Father’s Day, but what use is it to him if it features a design that’s impractical and hard to read? The Deep Blue Daynight Tritium PC boasts excellent low-light visibility thanks to its use of 15 “always on” tritium gas tubes placed throughout the dial, hands, and bezel, which naturally glow in the dark for up to 25 years without needing to be charged unlike luminous paint you’d find even on most high-end watches that only glow for a few hours at best. The timepiece features a precision Swiss-made Ronda 515 quartz movement with date function that will keep on ticking for 45 months without a battery change while keeping accurate time down to -10/+20 seconds per month. The 45mm case offers a generous diameter for easy legibility, but because it’s made out of heavy-duty polycarbonate, it’s both lightweight and durable. This diver-rated watch with its uni-directional bezel is also for 200m of water resistance, and the sapphire crystal resists scratches from life’s bumps and scrapes, making this a great gift for a dad with an active lifestyle. And for a limited time, you can receive a FREE thermometer and compass with purchase AND save $100 on the price of this beautiful watch as a gift to your dad by using code EDC on checkout on Deep Blue's store page.

WESN Allman Knife

If your father is the type who wants a no-nonsense knife that doesn’t cheap out on the materials or the performance, the WESN Allman is for him. The Allman sports a unique modified clip-point blade with a stout profile that makes it a strong tool while keeping things discreet at 2.75” in length. The design offers a beefy straight edge for larger utility tasks, a fine belly for delicate slicing, and a strong tip for piercing through the toughest of objects when you need it. And because it's made of premium S35VN steel, you can rely upon the hard blade on the Allman to maintain an edge through repeated daily use.

Pioneer Carry Wallet Collection

If you’re looking to move your dad away from the bulky traditional leather back pocket wallet he’s been carrying around for decades, giving him a gift of one of Pioneer Carry’s lightweight technical wallets is a great way to accomplish that goal. Their wallet line spans the gamut from ultra-minimalist cardholders to more-traditional billfold form factors that might be more friendly to a beginning EDCer. But all of the wallets feature lightweight 10XD super fabric construction blended into a well-stitched and seamless fine nylon ripstop that’s far more durable than leather but at a fraction of the bulk and heft. The technical fabric construction of these wallets also means they're highly repellent against dirt and water, and your dad can even accidentally leave them in the wash without ruining them. For a limited time only, you can buy any two wallets from Pioneer Carry’s website and save 25% on your entire order using code EDCBUNDLE. Take this opportunity today to both treat yourself to a new EDC wallet, and get an excellent gift for your dad as well.

Dango EDC Tray

If your dad needs a place to put his EDC in order once he gets home after a long day of work, check out Dango’s EDC Tray. Precision-machined in the United States out of a solid piece of aluminum, the Dango EDC Tray features four separate holders that allow for easy separation between EDC essentials like wallets, keys, knives, and phones. For added durability, DTEX fabric pads can be added for an extra layer of protection, and the non-slip pads at the bottom of the tray help prevent against accidental bumps off a table in the middle of the night.

Like the M-Series wallets above, you can save 20% off the EDC Tray with code FD20 on checkout.
