Does the dad on your list enjoy going on expeditions? Perhaps he likes rock-climbing or backpacking or road-tripping or world-traveling.
If so, he'll be cool and comfortable in the Titanium Expedition Pant ($70) by Columbia. Available in 2 colors, the pants are designed for "going places."
Tim likes them because they have a great fit and a great feel. They dry quickly if you happen to be out fishing (as he was last week). And have built in zip-up pockets to keep your keys and cash from falling out as you wander.
The pants also have UPF 50 protection, which make them an excellent option for sunny places and warmer weather.
FYI - Columbia also has an online outlet where you can save 30% or more. I took a quick peek and it looks like winter items (jackets, snowsuits, etc.) are currently the main attraction. If you're looking to stock up for next year, now might be a good time.
