Great Father’s Day gifts are elusive. He has everything. Nothing ever fits as well, lasts as long, or grills as precisely as it should. Stop beating your head against a wall trying to find that one thing he will love. Grab him a pair of 5.11 High Abrasion Tac Gloves this year.
Available in colors that only a dad would choose, with a range of sizes between small and 2XL, he’ll be hitting the range with a grin that will tickle his ears. I grabbed a pair of 2XL and swaddled my baby gorilla mitts for a few hundred rounds of skeet. The fit was surprisingly comfortable, the hefty velcro fasteners show great potential for years of flawless functionality, and the grip, although seemingly slick at first, was just the right balance of grab-to-give for loading and shooting.
These aren’t going to keep his hands warm in the dead of winter, but he’ll wear them to the range and in the field well into the fall. I promise he’ll never mention that awful tropical tie or the argyle socks you bought him for golfing ever again — $25.
