9 Top Picks for Outdoorsy Dads From Cabela's Father's Day Sale


Dads are tough to shop for. That could be part of the reason they're less celebrated than moms, but it's really no excuse to skip Father's Day.

That's especially true when Cabela's is taking up to 70% off a selection of gifts like apparel, tools, and outdoor and camping gear during its Father's Day Sale. (Choose in-store pickup to avoid shipping fees, which start at $5.95, or get free shipping on clothing and footwear orders of $49 or more via coupon code "17GEAR49". Otherwise, orders of $99 or more bag free shipping via code "7DADSDAY".)

If your dad is a total mother nature's son, here are nine gift ideas he'll love.

9 Father's Day Picks for Outdoorsy Dads

Carry That Weight

Cabela's Instinct Fast Tracker 63L Pack for $159.99 ($110 off)

If your dad's the type of guy who leaves the house before dawn and stays gone all day, he needs a quality pack to carry all his adventure supplies. This one has plenty of pockets and straps for holding stuff, and it features a hydration reservoir, rain cover, and removable game bag — little extras that add a lot of functionality.

A Taste of Honey

Cabela's 12-Tray Pro Series Dehydrator for $149.99 ($100 off)

Fact: A dad that's on the go and in the wilderness needs snacks. This cool machine will let him make his own. If he hunts, he can turn his haul into jerky. If he's not super into meat, he can craft homemade fruit rollups. Either way, if you're lucky, he might share his tasty creations.

Cabela's Men's Rain Stopper Jacket from $41.99 ($8 off)

Until humans figure out how to control the weather, outdoorsy types will need effective rain gear. A little storm won't get in the way of your dad's nature fun when he's got this jacket with sealed seams and an extended brim to keep water out.

Golden Slumbers

Cabela's Camo 0°F Sleeping Bag for $99.99 ($100 off)

If you dad likes to go on multi-day excursions, decent sleep can make all the difference in whether he's testing his endurance or prolonging his enjoyment. This sleeping bag makes the ground a softer, warmer bed, which translates to better rest.

Old Brown Shoe

Cabela's Men's Sixty-One Series Field Romeo Boots for $69.99 ($50 off)

Durable, waterproof boots are a must for outdoorsy pursuits. Dad needs shoes that are as strong and resilient as he is, and these boots will do the job. But they've also got lightweight, cushioned soles, because your dad definitely deserves to be comfortable.

Don't Let Me Down

Cabela's Magnum Director's Chair for $47.99 ($12 off)

After all your dad has done for you, don't let him sit on the ground when he needs to take a break. With this rugged folding chair, he can relax far above the hard earth, which will be nice whether he's camping or just manning the grill. It even has a side table with a cup holder so he can keep his beverage close by.

Come Together

Cabela's Fabric Camp Table for $15.19 ($4 off)

If that little side table isn't enough — maybe you like to accompany dad on his exploits, or he just needs more tabletop space — this folding table is a perfect addition. Suddenly meals can be a 2-person sit-down affair, and there's a place to play cards in "hurry up and wait" situations.

Hold Me Tight

Cabela's Men's Tactical Riggers Belt for $15.99 ($24 off)

A belt that not only keeps pants snug around the waist, but can also carry things, might be an item your dad never even knew he needed. But if tool belts, Bluetooth headsets, and drink holsters are any indication, dads love to go hands-free. This belt might even take the place of cargo shorts.

Buy Now

It's All Too Much

Cabela's Heavy-Duty Grinder for $79.99 ($10 off)

If Ron Swanson reminds you of your dad, you couldn't choose a more appropriate gift. It combines hunting, eating meat, and making things (all dads love to work with their hands) into one mega activity. A grinder is basically the symbol of stereotypical masculinity.
