Wondering what to get dad this Father’s Day? We have the perfect suggestion – quality time in the great outdoors. So, grab him aPacsafe bag and bond over thesefun Father’s Day activities!

Imagine roasting marshmallows over a warm campfire that flickers with a life of its own, under a starlit sky. This would be the ideal setting to talk to dad about anything – including his favourite childhood memories or the real reason why he loathes peanut butter.
For the best experience, choose scenic camping places likeCrater Lake National Park in Oregon. Here, you can embrace the beauty of mother nature as you gaze upon the park’s stunning crystal-clear lake surrounded by sheer cliffs and beautiful pine trees.
Don’t forget to bring along yourPacsafe Venturesafe X40 PLUS anti-theft 40L multi-purpose backpack, which will come in handy when you’re going for hikes near the campsite. This multi-purpose yet lightweight carry-on backpack is big enough to fit all your camping essentials including food, water and a first-aid kit.
On top of that, you won’t have to worry about keeping your camera or other valuables safe. The backpack has anti-theft technology such as the TurnNLock security hook and reinforced eXomesh ® slashguards, which will prevent thieves and bag slashers from stealing your gear. It also fits a Camsafe PCI insert and the Travelsafe X25 portable safe and pack insert (sold separately).

If dad is more into a quiet thrill, take him fishing instead. Visit any of the best fishing spots in U.S. including Boise River in Idaho, Charlotte Harbour in Florida, Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts and Cape Hatteras in North Carolina. Offering year-round fishing, Cape Hatteras is where you’ll find some amazing striped bass as they migrate through the area during winter.
While out on the open waters, travel smart with thePacsafe Venturesafe X22 anti-theft adventure backpack. Its built-in rain cover will keep your things from getting drenched, while itsbreathable perforated EVA foam shoulder straps ensure comfort at all times.

For something more adrenaline-pumping, take dad zip-lining. Pick a place that the both of you have yet to visit, so you can experience the place for the first time, together.
Check out theLost Canyon Zipline Tour where you and dad can soar over a rugged canyon and explore the majestic Rocky Mountains below. Take short hikes between the platforms and marvel at the 300 million-year-old rocky cliffs or look down at thelime kiln ruins  and abandonedsilver mine shaft.
Stay worry-free during your hike when you store your essentials in the lightweightPacsafe Venturesafe X30 anti-theft adventure backpack, which has the same anti-theft features that come with the Venturesafe series. Besides that, its hydration pack compartment and top quick access pocket will definitely come in handy when you want to rehydrate quickly.

You may be wondering if this counts as an outdoor activity. Technically, it does if you and dad savour a variety of brews outdoors atBlue Mountain Brewery. In fact, it may just be one of the best things to do on Father’s Day!
Located in the heart of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, the place is a scenic haven for beer lovers. Here, you can sip on a range of beers while enjoying panoramic views of the surrounding mountains from the brew pub’s expansive patio seating.
Not only is the selection of beers here impressive, but the food menu is equally lengthy, offering delicious pizzas, burgers and classic bar staples like nachos. But, don’t neglect your belongings while you’re busy enjoying the experience. Keep your things safe with thePacsafe Venturesafe 25L GII anti-theft travel pack. This handy carry-on also has a Turn & Lock security hook, which lets you secure your bag to a fixture – so that you can enjoy the tasty beers without worrying about your gear being stolen. In addition to that, it also has a secured zip tab to deter pickpockets.
Have thesecool Father’s Day ideas inspired plans for a memorable outing with dad? If yes, have fun and travel safe!
