Great Father’s Day gifts don’t have to cost three digits. Case in point: the following gear.

The Dope is just big enough to carry all your dad's grooming essentials on the road. It also works just as well for fishing gear.

Butter is great for cooking. But you know what’s even better? Pure animal fat. If your dad is the family chef, consider one or all of these oils, which can be used as a butter replacement in a variety of dishes. Choose from beef, pork, duck, or bison fat, all made by Epic, which makes jerky, bars, and trail mix for the Paleo set.

New for 2017, the Astro packs 150 lumens and nearly 40 hours of burn time into a package that’s barely bigger than a box of Tic-Tacs. Consider this headlamp the latest addition to your dad’s day pack.

United by Blue Inlet Enamel Steel Mug ($20)

There are fancier coffee mugs out there, and this one doesn't say “World’s Best Dad.” But we dig the design, which shows the sun setting over the San Juan Islands. Plus, it’s burly enough to be set right on a stove or campfire.

Otterbox DryBox ($40)

Otterbox’s new DryBox has 55 cubic inches of storage space, which is big enough for a large smartphone, keys, and wallet, but small enough to slip into a daypack.
