Father's Day is a great time to show your dad how much you appreciate all that he has done for you and the encouragement that he showed you throughout your live. It is now your turn to help encourage him to play a little more in the outdoors. This guide is full of gear that would please any dad who loves the outdoors.
RIBZ Front Pack
This Father's Day you can get your dad a pack that will help him have quick access to his critical equipment. The use of a front pack repositions a portion of your weight forward which reduces your overall shoulder stress and increases comfort, mobility, and balance. A front pack also creates the illusion of carrying a lighter load. Though the RIBZ front pack was designed with ultralight backpacking intentions, any outdoor activity where easy access of equipment is critical is where it proves beneficial. RIBZ front pack can be used alone as a vest but is primarily designed to work with your existing backpack as increased functionality. Also an added benefit is the RIBZ gives you the ability to ditch your pack at base camp and keep your most important backpacking gear with you at all times.
• Fast Access to the gear you need when you need it.

ZOIC Nirvana Zip Jersey
One thing that I love about some of ZOIC clothing is that you can wear it around town and not feel like everyone is wondering why you are wearing your jersey into the store.

Then it was the ultimate shop shirt, now it's the ultimate riding shirt: commute across town, shred some singletrack, bomb a gravity run, and then leave your bike behind without losing your sense of style.
