Steehead Outdoors has added a new product to its growing Nomad modular gun safe line and it would be perfect for the hunting bearing arms dads.
NOMAD 32 Modular Gun Safe
The new Nomad 32 is a great choice as it provides hunters, shooters and firearm collectors with a mid-size choice in between its Nomad 26 and Nomad 38 models. (The model numbers correspond with the gun safes’ exterior widths.)
All Steelhead Outdoors Nomad modular safes feature American-made quality and precision engineered versatility. These safes can be ordered with either a dial mechanical lock or a push button digital lock to match dad's preference.
NOMAD Series = Ultimate Features
The Steelhead Outdoors Nomad series features many high-end security features expected in a premium gun safe. The patent-pending construction features a fully dry insulation system, eliminating the need for a dehumidifier. It utilizes a radiant heat reflecting coating to reject incoming heat from entering the safe. The metal interior provides additional protection and is made from nearly 100 percent nonflammable materials. The panels are filled with ceramic fire insulation that is rated to 2300 degrees and is non-moisture trapping and will not release steam into the safe in the event of a fire.
Proprietary webbing, rare-earth neodymium magnets, and an A380 aluminum alloy buckle are all just part of what makes the Groove Belt awesome. Plus, they're patented!
There’s also a little something the Groove Life team likes to call Stiff-Tech™ (aka: no folding in your belt loops) and the perfect amount of stretch for those nights when you’ve had too much fried food.
This belt is available in a variety of colors and designs, so you can find the perfect style for your dad.
U-Konserve's trusted stainless steel rectangle containers now come with plastic-free, clear-as-glass silicone lids! This dynamic duo makes for a perfect waste-free solution for dad's lunches, takeout, picnics, travel, outdoor adventures, bulk shopping, and family leftovers.
Pack up dad's favorite snacks, lunches, and main meals to surprise him.
This reusable bento-style lunchbox is versatile enough for many food-storage needs at home and on the go, while saving trash from our ever-growing landfills.
The flexible silicone lids are easy to open and the leak-proof feature keeps spills at bay.
Dare to enter Dragonwood! This game is perfect for family game night and is geared for ages 8 and up (but we've found out younger kids do well with it too.)
Deep in the heart of this mythical forest lurk angry ogres, giggling goblins, and even the famed and fearsome fire-breathers themselves! Collect sets of adventurer cards to earn dice, which you will use to roll against your foes. Stomp on some fire ants, shriek at a grumpy troll, or strike the menacing orange dragon with a magical silver sword. Choose your strategy carefully because the landscape of Dragonwood is ever-changing. Only the bravest will overcome the odds to emerge victorious!
This game is easy to learn and only takes about 20 minutes to play. The dice are gorgeous and the card art is great. You really feel like you're walking through a magical wood capturing spooky spiders, finding enchantments and battling a fierce blue dragon.
About the Game:
It may be hard to imagine, but Dragonwood, with its vast array of richly illustrated cards, started out looking much different than where it ended. Inventor Darren Kisgen submitted a prototype without a single illustration – just simple words and numbers written in marker on blank white cards. Well apparently that’s all was needed, because within moments, our play testers were enraptured with the simple-to-learn but deeply engaging fantasy-themed game. Illustrator Chris Beatrice beautifully captured the wit and humor depicted in Darren’s words to create one of our most visually appealing games.
The BOULDER vacuum insulated water bottle is a flagship bottle that will keep your drinks hot or cold all day long. Made from premium 18/8 stainless steel, it features Eco Vessel's signature TriMax® Triple Insulation and keeps drinks cold up to 74 hours and hot up to 14 hours.
The dual-opening lid is easy to grip, has a wide mouth for easy filling, and a soft silicone spout for a comfortable drinking experience. The lid is securely attached to a sturdy carrying strap, so you always know where it is, and the leakproof seal keeps your drinks in the bottle - where they belong.
Dad will also appreciate how it includes a removable strainer for tea, fruit, and ice cubes. The fitted silicone bumper adds protection against everyday drops. Plus, choosing a reusable water bottle cuts down on single-use plastic consumption. There’s nothing the BOULDER doesn’t offer!

Secret Hitler is a dramatic game of political intrigue and betrayal set in 1930's Germany. Players are secretly divided into two teams - liberals and fascists. Known only to each other, the fascists coordinate to sow distrust and install their cold-blooded leader. The liberals must find and stop the Secret Hitler before it’s too late.
Each round, players elect a President and a Chancellor who will work together to enact a law from a random deck. If the government passes a fascist law, players must try to figure out if they were betrayed or simply unlucky. Secret Hitler also features government powers that come into play as fascism advances. The fascists will use those powers to create chaos unless liberals can pull the nation back from the brink of war.
This game is fast paced and can be played again and again.
