Every Day Carry for Dad
Father's Day is coming up soon - Sunday, June 19th, to be exact. Have you been thinking about a great gift for Dad? Need some help? We have a few ideas! How about something he can carry with him every day; something he'll actually use? Dads like EDC too! Here are some of our favorite Every Day Carry items that Dad may find useful as well.
Benchmade 533BK-2 Mini Bugout Knife
A classic EDC is a pocket knife. The Benchmade 533BK-2 Mini Bugout Knife is a small lightweight knife with a slim profile. A favorite with hikers and backpackers, the Mini Bugout weighs 1.5 ounces. Dad will hardly notice it in his pocket. The drop point blade slopes downward from the handle. It offers a good tip for detail work, and a good cutting edge for other tasks. It also has a deep pocket clip. The Mini Bugout is a small utility knife that Dad will be glad to have close at hand.
Leatherman Wingman Multi Tool
A Leatherman Multi Tool has been a favorite EDC for many years. The Leatherman Wingman is compact and pocket-sized weighing in at 7 ounces. It includes 14 tools: spring-action needlenose and regular pliers, spring-action wire cutter, and spring-action scissors. Other tools include a wire stripper, a combo knife, an opener for pesky plastic packaging, a small ruler for measuring screws and other small items, a can opener and a bottle opener, a wood and metal file, and small, medium and Phillips screwdrivers. The blade is accessible from the outside. The Wingman is ideal for small repairs, and will save Dad a trip to the toolbox.
KeySmart Pro with Tile Smart Location Tracking
Does Dad have trouble keeping track of his keys? Despite his best efforts do they land anywhere from the door, assorted flat surfaces, pockets or even the refrigerator? Let the KeySmart Pro with Tile Smart Location Tracking help. Using Bluetooth tech, Dad can use his phone to locate those missing keys. The KeySmart Pro can keep up to ten flat keys neatly organized in his pocket, and it has a loop for a fob as well. And if Dad has trouble keeping up with the phone, he can use the KeySmart Pro Tile to find it!
Nite Core MT21C Flashlight
Another great EDC is a pocket-sized flashlight. The Nite Core MT21C Flashlight small: 5.15 inches by 1 inch and weighs 3.65 ounces. But don't let its size fool you. It has lots of bells and whistles that can make it one of Dad's favorites. It has a magnetic base and an adjustable head that covers 90 degrees for precision lighting when working in the dark. This Nite Core flashlight offers 5 brightness levels as well as strobe, beacon and SOS functions. Give Dad the gift of light in dark places!
Nite Ize Steelie Orbiter Vent Kit
So are you sometimes Dad's navigator on trips? What happens if you're not along for the ride? With the Nite Ize Steelie Orbiter Vent Kit Dad can have his smart phone navigator safely in view without fumbling to read a screen if he didn't quite catch the next turn. The Steelie Orbiter is a low-profile magnetic mounting kit that fastens into an auto air vent where it can be rotated for viewing without turning one's head away from the road. It can be easily detached and moved from vehicle to vehicle. We think Dad will appreciate it.
Shokz Openrun Headphones
How many times have you asked Dad if he finally listened to that podcast you suggested while he was out walking or running? If his excuse is that he likes being able to hear what's going on around him, consider the Shokz Openrun Headphones. With Shokz Openrun Dad can list to podcasts, the news, music, whatever he would like, and still hear what's going on around him. These open-ear headphones use bone conduction technology to provide high-quality sound plus the lightweight construction keeps them comfortable.
Zeal Optics Caddis Sunglasses
By now, Dad knows that sunglasses really are important for protecting his eyes from glare and damaging UV rays. But he still may not use them as much as he should because he feels he can't see clearly when wearing them. Show him what a difference a quality pair of sunglasses can make. Zeal Optics Caddis Sunglasses have crisp, clear polarized lenses and the wraparound styling offers added protection for his eyes. He can also feel virtuous wearing these plant-based frames and lenses!
So these are just a few of the Every Day Carry items you'll find in our Whole Earth stores and online. If not for Dad, perhaps for you. And if you need help in choosing a gift, we can help!
