An Osprey Daylight or Daylight Plus Day Pack. Whether your dad is an avid trekker, the occasional hiker, or just needs a little extra space to carry a jacket, water and a snack, you can’t go wrong with an Osprey day pack. At $50, the Daylite is Osprey’s best-selling pack. Even though it’s an entry-level product in the Osprey line, you still get Osprey’s “All Mighty Guarantee”, which states that Osprey will repair or replace a damaged product for the lifetime of the owner: “Any Product, Any Era, Any Reason”. The Daylite comes in a wide assortment of colors. For an extra $15, you can get the Daylite plus, which adds extra storage space with an external stash pocket for holding a lightweight jacket and a zippered key / money compartment. The Daylite and Daylite plus are perfect lightweight packs for globetrotting as well.
A Hala Hoss Inflatable SUP. Show Dad how much you appreciate all the time he spent coaching your sports teams and coming to your games. The Hala Hoss is a world-class inflatable stand up paddle board (SUP). It’s tough drop-stitch construction and durable shell allow you to take this board on the river as well as lakes and ponds. The Hoss comes with its own roller bag that converts into a backpack. It also includes both an electric pump and high capacity hand pump for easy inflation. The Hoss has a wide platform and gentle rocker, making it a very stable board for fishing. Best of all, the Hoss is under the 50 pound airline baggage weight limit, so Dad can take this board to his warm-weather destination of choice.
An SUP OnTheFly logoed Bison Cooler. This rotomolded cooler will keep a block of ice for a week. It is the perfect cooler for kayak fishing, stand up paddle board (SUP) fishing or just taking on a road trip. Bison’s 25 quart cooler is the perfect size to strap to the D-rings of an SUP. The cooler’s handles are located on the body, not the cover, so you can still access the inside of the cooler after the cooler is strapped down. Unlike other leading rotomolded coolers, Bison’s capacity is true to size. Instead of measuring the outside dimensions of the cooler, Bison provides its capacity based on inner compartment dimensions. Bison coolers are also proudly made in the USA. So if you’re looking for a gift to keep Dad cool during the heat of summer, a Bison cooler is the perfect thing.
A Thermacell® Mosquito Repellent Lantern. This past winter was a mild one in western NY. Local lore suggests that exceptionally buggy summers tend to follow mild winters. Keep bugs away this Father’s Day! Thermacell lanterns are powered by a single butane cartridge. The heat generated by the butane cartridge is directed to a metal grill. A small mat, saturated with allethrin repellent, sits on top of the metal grill. Heat vaporizes the repellent, allowing it to rise into the air. Allethrin naturally occurs in chrysanthemum flowers. It repels mosquitoes, black flies, and no-see-ums, and will not harm humans or pets. Within minutes after turning on the lantern, the repellent creates a 15 by 15-foot (225 square-foot) area of repellency, the size of an average deck, patio, or campsite.
We also have an assortment of Orvis fly fishing gear, Klean Kanteen insulated cups and growlers, Buff insect shield neck gaiters, Patagonia clothing and duffles, Tilly hats, Salewa hiking boots and much, much more. So if it’s been a while since you’ve visited the store, be sure to stop in to see all the new gear and make your dad feel great on Father’s Day!
