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

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 that you can save a bit as well.

Ridge Kits Everyday Carry Kits

This Father's Day, Ridge has put out convenient kits of EDC essential gear in giftable packages. The Ridge Kits will make a significant quality of life improvement to your dad's loadout.

At the heart of the Everyday Carry kit is the legendary Ridge Wallet. The Ridge Wallet features a minimalist design and easy-to-use operation. With a Ridge Wallet, your dad can pare down to the essentials with ease. Any Ridge Wallet can carry up to 12 standard ID or payment cards. A Cash Strap or Money Clip is also easy to carry folded bills. And the metal design of the wallet itself integrates RFID protection.

The Everyday Carry kit adds Ridge's new Bolt Action pen to the winning combination of Wallet and Keycase. The Ridge Bolt Action Pen includes a Parker-compatible pressurized refill. That gives it a smooth and reliable writing action. It's also easy to find a replacement in a pinch. The 5.3" pen has enough length without being too big for the pockets. It's also not too small for comfort in extended writing sections. Plus, the CNC-lathed knurled grip makes it easy to grip as well. The bolt action makes for an addicting and fun retractable experience. Every time your dad uses it to fidget with or write, he'll love it.

Streamlight MacroStream® USB Flashlight

At 4.5" long and 0.83" in diameter, the MacroStream® USB is a compact personal light that fits just as easily in dad's palm as it will in his pockets. Its body features aluminum construction with type II mil-spec anodizing, providing 1 meter of impact resistance. It makes the MacroStream® USB a durable performer while keeping it lightweight at 2.2 oz. The lens features scratch-resistant polycarbonate, and every opening is o-ring sealed giving it an IPX4 rating for water resistance. The MacroStream® USB also keeps the ergonomic shape of its MicroStream® predecessors: slimmer in the middle to provide users with a more secure grip and for ease of use of its two-way clip.

The MacroStream® USB features two simple modes, accessed by a push-button tail-switch. On high, you get a maximum output of 500 lumens with a beam distance of 90 meters and 2 hours of runtime. You get a 50-lumen output with a 30-meter beam and 8 hours of runtime on low. Voltage and power are provided by the li-ion battery, charged with an onboard micro-USB charging port covered by the head of the flashlight for extra protection. When the battery runs low, slide the head forward to reveal the port, and when plugged in, the MacroStream® USB takes about 4 hours to fully recharge. This light fits right in with the rest of dad's tech, giving him a convenient way to charge using existing USB cords.

Dango A10 Spec Ops Wallet

This Father's Day, free your dad from the tyranny of a bulky traditional back pocket leather wallet. This is an easy task with the recently-released Dango A10 Spec Ops wallet. The A10 Spec Ops features a vertical design with extreme modularity. It also has a robust design that features utility for the user beyond carrying cards and cash. That's thanks to what Dango calls their 'Adapt' system. That allows your dad to take the base chassis of a wallet and add and remove functions based on need.

The A10 Spec Ops wallet base is a CNC-machined 6061 aerospace aluminum chassis. Dango mated that frame with a DTEX wallet skin that is resilient and water-resistant. The chassis is also Cerakoted for even more durability despite rough use. After that, your dad can choose between a Pocket Adapter that can hold 4-5 payment and ID cards for quick access. There's a bifold adapter with an ID window for dads who carry more. That bifold also comes with a pen slot for streamlined EDC.

The bifold option also comes with the MT01 Clasp multitool. It encloses the bifold and comes with five useful functions. What other wallet comes with five tools, including screwdrivers and a bottle opener? The Dango A10 Spec Ops is about as far away as you can get from the boring leather back pocket wallet. And it's something you should consider gifting to your dad this year.
