The team at Paddy Pallin have put our collective heads together and come up with the ultimate list of Father’s Day Gift’s!!

You will be sure to find the perfect gift for your Dad and maybe something for yourself 😉

A multi tool is a classic Father’s Day present and when you think of multi tools Leatherman is the 1st name that will come to mind. Built to Survive the new Leatherman Signal features a ferro rod for building fires, an emergency whistle and 17 other essential tools, the Signal is the first of its kind.


For the Dad who loves the newest gadgets and wants to track where he is and his training the Suunto Spartan Ultra is the ultimate Father’s Day Gift. Read our review here.


Combining award-winning Reactor® technology with the features any Dad needs most, the MSR WindBurner Stove System is ideal for backcountry adventures and weekend camping alike. Read our review here.

It sets up easily, like a tarp, but it does more than protect you from the rain. The Nemo Bugout creates an inviting bug-free zone for corralling kids and pets, and relaxing over food and drink.


Looking for a gift that is a little more economical the Boulder, Colorado-based Nite Ize has been in the innovation business for over 20 years. Founded on the idea of finding simple, creative solutions to everyday problems, Nite Ize’s product development team has an incredible track record of churning out award-winning “why didn’t I think of that?” innovations that users in the know can’t live without.


Socks and Jocks are a no-brainer Father’s Day present. However don’t go for boring cotton look at a pair of Wigwam Socks and Exofficio Undies. These are breathable and quick drying, keeping your Dad cool for active performance.


Sea To Summit’s X Series of pots, kettles, plates and bowls make for a great gift idea. They are lightweight, compact and durable. Read our review here.

The Patagonia Arbor is a trendy backpack, equipped with a padded laptop sleeve that harkens back to the classic Kelter Sack and holds most 15˝ laptops and everything else your Dad would need for a day around town, to and from the gym or going to work.


The Black Diamond Storm head lamp punches above its weight with an unprecedented 250 lumens of power, a weatherproof construction and a full feature set, the Storm headlamp is their premier light for climbing, skiing and other outdoor pursuits where bright, compact illumination is paramount.


Does your Dad buy everything he wants when he sees it? Maybe the good old Gift Voucher is the best idea.
