Father’s Day is right around the corner and finding the perfect gift may be the toughest decision, but we put together a list of products that are great for the overlanding dad. Get dad outdoors this year and there are plenty of choices to make that happen and enjoy it with him.
Dometic CFX3 45 – $1,049.99
Give Dad the gift of fresh food, cold beverages, and more confidence with Dometic’s CFX3 45. Built around the powerful (and proprietary) VMSO3 compressor cooling technology, the CFX3 can maintain a cabinet temperature anywhere from 68 to -7 degrees Fahrenheit, while using less power than a 60-watt light bulb from the vehicle’s 12-volt battery. With a heavy-duty yet lightweight ExoFrame construction, the CFX3 is ready to take Dad further on his next adventure and let him cook up something a bit more than hot dogs.
Dometic HYD-J11 Hydration Water Jug – $69.99
Dometic’s new HYD-J11 Hydration Jug addresses a long-neglected, yet key component of camping and outdoor life: water storage. This hard-shell jug stores up to 11 liters, stows neatly against camp gear due to its modular design, and sports a molded hand grip at the base for easy, controlled pours. Featuring two openings – one Nalgene-sized cap for water filtration compatibility, and a separate, larger opening for easy cleaning – the HYD-J11 Hydration Jug revolutionizes outdoor water storage and management like never before.
Dometic HYD-WF Hydration Water Faucet – $99.99
Bring the convenience of your kitchen outdoors with the HYD-WF Faucet. Compatible with the HYD-J11 Jug or as a standalone piece, the HYD-WF Faucet brings running water to camp, allowing you to wash your hands and dishes or fill your bottle with the ease of a single tap. From the backyard to the backcountry, the HYD-WF Faucet fundamentally reimagines outdoor water use and conservation.
onX Offroad Premium – $29.99/year
Give Dad access to endless adventures with onX Offroad and help him plan the next campout. Built by offroaders for offroaders, onX lets you plan and discover over 550,000 miles of trails, find campsites, and share tracks or waypoints with friends and family. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, navigation tools are accessible straight from the dashboard for effortless navigation. It’s all about knowing before you go and being able to find your way once cell service is long gone. With three user levels available, the options are endless.
iKamper X-Cover 2.0 Mini – $3,199
The smallest and lightest hybrid tent in iKamper’s lineup, the X-Cover 2.0 Mini adds unprecedented convenience and comfort to Dad’s next excursion. Setting up and breaking down in two minutes or less, the X-Cover 2.0 Mini sleeps two, fits on most vehicles (truck beds included), and weighs in at just 119 pounds. This tent eliminates the bulky PVC cover of traditional rooftop tents, opting for a tough Rocky Black shell with durable canvas sides. With the compact 89-inch x 51-inch, this tent saves room on your rack, leaving more room for bikes, kayaks, and more. Pair with the recently released Sleep System and Dad will be set for any adventure this summer.
