Spaced on Father’s Day? Check out This Super-Last-Minute Gear Guide for Outdoorsy Dads.

There’s a lot going on in the world, so it’s understandable if you forgot about ordering a Father’s Day gift. With these local brands, it’s never too late to show Dad you care.

Topo Designs River Shorts

Is there a raft-supported trail running trip on Dad’s summer 2020 bucket list? These relaxed fit, two-way stretch shorts will keep him cool no matter what he’s getting into. (Psst: A women’s version with a 4.5-inch inseam is available for moms who like to get after it, too.) $79 |

Swiftwick PURSUIT Business Eight

Dads don’t have limits, and neither should their socks. This moderate-compression crew sock packs Swiftwick’s technical performance features into a stylish, super-soft Merino wool number with plenty of support — plus moisture wicking fibers that’ll keep him cool whether he’s grinding in the boardroom or chasing his kids through the wilderness. $20 |

OtterBox Venture 25 Cooler

Whether he’s embarking on a rugged day trip with his buddies, or taking the kids fishing along Gore Creek, this ultra-durable cooler will keep Hope Foods hummus and a six-pack of Upslope IPA cold all day long. $230 |

EcoVessel TriMax Triple Insulted Stainless Steel Mug

Forget about Saturday morning cartoons: Outdoorsy dads like to get up and go. This high-performance, insulated mug fuels an active day by keeping his coffee warm. Any caffeine is good when there are kids in the mix, but this gift pairs especially well with a bag of beans from a local roaster such as Kaladi Coffee Roasters or Wader Coffee. $25 |

Boo SL-G Custom Gravel Bike

If Dad jumped on the gravel bike bandwagon, wow him with a handmade bike. Combining bamboo and carbon technology, the SL-G is a top-of-the-line, custom gravel bike built for extremely rough terrain (flint, hard rock, and washboard dirt roads). $4,895 (frame only) |

Breckenridge Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey

This last one isn’t gear. But kids stress everyone out sometimes, and doesn’t the dad in your life deserve to hydrate with a 100 percent grain-to-bottle Breckenridge Whiskey that tastes great on and off the trail? $117 |
