This year, we encourage you to not only give a worthwhile piece of gear, but to get outside with your dad and make a memory.

The comfortable, breathable foam seat includes built in adjustable lumbar support making it so that, even on the water, your posture is never being compromised.

Does your dad have an old multi tool that’s been used to the point where the blade on the knife can barley cut through plastic wrapping? If so, the SOG PowerAssist Multi-Tool is the obvious upgrade. This revolutionary tool is the first to house two assisted opening blades. When the blade is not in use there is a patent pending side release that needs to be flipped open to utilize. When any feature on the blade is opened, they remain locked open which is a feature that a small percentage of other multi-tools possess. The tool will never close up on your hand while in use. The blades are unique from each other in that one is straight and the other is serrated. The tool is put together with hex bolts so that it can be dissembled and parts replaced if needed. Lastly, the package includes a belt looped nylon pouch and a lifetime warranty.
