Timing vest season is tricky — like End of Days math. While we’re no Harold Camping, we do know that the window for warmer chests with free and easy arms is quickly approaching. If you don’t have a down body koozie already, the Crescent Down Works Total 60/40 Italian Vest (~$343) is worth a gander. The Seattle based outfit’s wares are made in the USA with a water-repellent 60/40 fabric and packed with 100% Goose Down Fill. The hood is also detachable and features a velcro fastener if the weather gets nasty. Available in black, blue, blaze-orange and chestnut — pick one up now and liberate your limbs while you still can.
Gear Patrol is a gathering place for guys hell-bent on making the most of their time on planet Earth in the 21st century. What we do is what magazines have always done: provide a filter on the world, our take on what’s valuable and interesting, using original photography and thoughtful storytelling -- but with the agility a website affords. That means we can tapdance between brand new product releases and timeless stories about people and far-off places, on the same day, on the same page, from our HQ in New York or anywhere else in the world. We value our long game and our short game equally. More this way.
