Well, gents, the glorious month of Movember is nearly upon us. In case you are unfamiliar, Movember is a worldwide opportunity to overtake the month formerly known as November to raise awareness of men’s health issues and the garner donations to combat prostate and testicular cancers. How does Movember make that happen? By encouraging men everywhere to grow a mustache. Clearly this is something that the men of Gear Patrol can get with. Oh, yeah, and we’re inviting you to join us.

In short, we’re wholeheartedly of the opinion that if you can fight cancer, you should. Especially if your definition of fight is growing a badass mustache.
