He took you hunting, now it’s time to repay the favor with some great gear he can enjoy in the field. Here’s a round-up of our favorite products from the past year that make the perfect gifts for Dad this Father’s Day.

Worksharp Pocket Knife Sharpener

Worksharp Pocket Knife Sharpener

The GPS is easy to wield and quick to put a razor-sharp edge on your blade. The diamond plate works out rough spots from knife and tool steel, while the ceramic rod hones to a find edge. Each side features built-in angled guides that help even the fumbled-thumbed get just the right hone on. Lightweight enough to throw in your hunting pack so you’ll always have a sharp edge. $15 | worksharptools.com

Warne RT-1 Range Tool

Warne RT-1 Range Tool

One tool to rule them all – that’s what this handy gadget promises. Secured inside the aluminum case are 12 different chrome-vandium drivers to take care of most minor firearms fixes. Includes six allen tools, three Torx drivers, a pin removers and flat and Phillips head screwdrivers. $20 | warnescopemounts.com

Alps Renegade X Compression Bags

Alps Renegade X Compression Bags

From camo clothes to sleeping bags, hunters’ gear takes up a lot of space. Maximize the room in your duffel with these slick stuff sacks. A unique Air Control bottom lets air pass out of the bag as you compress it, yet doesn’t allow water in. Taped seams and coated nylon construction keep gear dry in all wet conditions short of total immersion. Multiple sizes available. $30-$45 | alpsoutdoorz.com

Adventure Medical Kit Sportsman 300

Adventure Medical Kit Sportsman 300

Among the list of camp necessities, a first-aid kit is among the most essential, but often overlooked item. Keep this kit close at hand to cover most minor, and a few major, mishaps. Well organized and clearly label, it also for fast response without digging through unnecessary stuff. Detachable trauma pack is great for carrying on day-long hunts. $75 | adventuremedicalkits.com

Stacked Outdoors Ladder Sticks

Stacked Outdoors Ladder Sticks

Tough polymer treestand steps are quieter, last longer, do not rust and are lighter to carry than metal ladders. That sums up why I like the new Ladder Sticks from Stacked Outdoors. A set of four Ladder Sticks will get you approximately 18 feet off the ground yet they nestle perfectly onto each other so that when used with the integral backback strap, they’re easy to carry in before the season and to take home when it’s all over. $179.99 | stackedoutdoors.com

KUIU Northridge Rain Coat

KUIU Northridge Rain Coat

When storms blow up, a lightweight rain jacket can save the day. Stuff this one under a seat or in a pack and go forth knowing you’ve got 100% waterproof protection when you need it. Two-way stretch Toray fabric is comfortable, and comes in at under 1 lb. total weight. Pit zips and a visored hood round out the package. $249 | kuiu.com

Winchester Wildcat

Winchester Wildcat

Winchester’s newest entry into the rimfire market shares the name of its classic “Wildcat” ammunition. This striker-fired autoloader comes with a button-rifled 18-inch barrel fit with a post front and fully-adjustable rear peep sight. The rear sight is mounted at the extreme rear of the receiver which makes for a long sight radius; an integral Picatinny rail on top of the receiver makes scope mounting a simple affair. $249 | winchesterguns.com

YETI Loadout GoBox

YETI Loadout GoBox

Yes the price is excessive, but like most Yeti products, you get what you pay for, and what you’re paying for here is a tough, water- and dust-proof storage crate for all your essentials gear. Inside the virtually indestructible rotomolded box is a removable tray and mesh lid organizer. Use as a hunting box, chuck box or as a bombproof way to keep any gear safe and secure. $250 | yeti.com

Camp Chef Pursuit Pellet Grill

Camp Chef Pursuit Pellet Grill

A portable smoker and grill? Sign us up! The Pursuit Pellet Grill has fold down legs and heavy-duty wheels to make packing it to camp a breeze. Over 500 inches of cook space lets you smoke a backstrap easily, or switch to direct flame broil mode to grill venison burgers. An Ash Cleanout System makes clean-up quick. Requires 110-volt oulet, so pack along the generator too. $525 | campchef.com
