3. The Cruiser Compass by Best Made Co.
Your old man could probably navigate through the Great Dismal Swamp at midnight with nothing more than his wits and a compass—so you’d better make sure he’s got a damn good compass. The lensatic Cruiser Compass packs in every feature a wilderness navigator could need: spirit level for accurate readings, die-cast zinc body, lubbing line, luminescent bezel, clinometer. It also comes with a 28-page instructional manual, but we all know your dad won’t need that. — Michael Rodio, senior digital editor ($168, bestmadeco.com)Back to top
