Adidas-Consortium-Boston-Super-OG-Gear-Patrol adidas Consortium Boston Super OG
Originally introduced in 1984, the Boston Super OG style was meant to pay homage to the eponymous marathon. It’s been re-released this year, and certainly imbued with more meaning. The gray, navy and red colorway provides keen visual contrast and, in a muted way, invokes the flag — a fitting tribute. adidas.com ()
Badlands-Criterion-Blu-Ray-Gear-Patrol Badlands Criterion Collection Blu-ray
Terrence Malick’s directorial debut — based on the true story of a murderous couple streaking through a series of homicides — is now available on Blu-ray through the famed Criterion Collection. It’s as much of a killer as it ever was, bolstered by 4K restoration, a making-of doc, and handsome retro cover-art. $27

Roka-Viper-Speed-Suit-Gear-Patrol Roka Viper Speed Suit
Available in mere days, the Viper Speed suit is made for triathletes and swim trainers who are ready to rocket through the wet. NASA tech (and basic physics) helped inform this upstart company’s suit designs, and they’ve been proven in real-world races. rokasports.com
Tumi-x-Terrapin-Stationers-Gear-Patrol Tumi x Terrapin Stationers Travel Notecards
In collaborating with the family-run, century-old Terrapin Stationers, Tumi has created a simple set of notecards and envelopes that’ll help travelers keep in touch with their home bases. Each notecard (they come in the sets of six) features a pithy, sensible quip. Just don’t forget to pack stamps. $20
Aston-Martin-V12-Vantage-S-Gear-Patrol Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
It apparently wasn’t enough to cram a V12 into the Vantage. Aston Martin has one-upped themselves by creating the ultimate interpretation of their already stunning muscle car. It’s lighter, faster and more ferocious than ever with an AM28 6.0L V12 engine rocketing it to 205 mph. Racing technology abounds in the transmission, adaptive suspension and the monster One-77s exhaust system. astonmartin.com
