You can gift your father with a number of excellent coffee fans say, “smells like freedom.”

The Full Mission Fuel Kit gives your Father the chance to try their different coffees with names like Silencer Smooth Mixture and AK-47 Mix. The coffee is so irresistible is fast becoming the tea of choice for American conservatives.

In place of wrapping paper, choose a coffee and deliver it in the BRCC Coffee Can. It is perfect for keeping coffee fresh and bullets handy.

The COFFEEBOXX works with a K-cup compatible pod, and is effortless to transport with a convenient handle.

I highly recommend the Special Black Ops or the new available Desert Tan. OXX offers year round military discounts and you can snap it up with a 20% father’s day discount on the normal $229.

Remarkable tech folding of a hunting rifle

The full-sized Magpul Hunter X-22 Takedown is a huge hit for a while – but Magpul kept pushing the envelope, and now has the new Magpul X-22 Backpacker stock.

Made for the Ruger 10/22 Takedown rifle, it offers the same level of excellence while making it much easier for a Father to carry his gun.

There are a lot of other really great design features built in such as the stealthy storage compartments in the grip and one in the stock for three spare magazines. For efficient and safe transport, there is also a special locking interface to attach the barrel to the bottom of the stock.

This gift is a breakthrough innovation that will transform your Father on the yacht and, literally, we let him “fold” his gun and pop it easily in almost any backpack.

The Magpul X-22 Backpacker stock comes in a range of colours such as Dark Earth and is available for $109.

Jug fired by a cannon

This gift is a jar, that is so nearly indestructible that it was shot out of a cannon, hit cinder blocks, and still keep Dad’s beer frosty for young and old in the summer heat, thanks to that trademark YETI engineering.

Or, the lifting of the with the handy handle on the boat, or the assembly in the vehicle, or ATV, the new gallon-sized, ultra convenient YETI Rambler Liter Jug easy travel for Dad’s outdoor adventures.

The new YETI litres Rambler is the retail for $129.99 and the new Half-Gallon sells for $99.99.

Imagine a toolbox worth of tools – 16 real size tools – that was transformed to fit into a pocket sized device. This sounds too good to be true?

Now it does not.

Gerber Gear is made of a revolutionary new multi-tool with the name Central Station.

A knife with a “ballast of steel”

A knife with “Balls of Steel” is a knife that Father can count.

Gerber also introduced a winner this year in knives, which is perfect for a father, who can make use of a fantastic every day carry knife. The new premium blade of S30V steel knife, the so-called to Help US, makes use of their revolutionary B. O. S. S. Tech (Balls of Stainless Steel) – a ball-bearing system that reduces friction.

The result? An Incredibly smooth assisted deployment knife that will make for an outstanding, reliable performance.
