mManhattan-Portage-Keith-Haring-Stuyvesant-Backpack-Gear-Patrol Manhattan Portage Keith Haring Stuyvesant Backpack
Of course this bag from Manhattan Portage is ready to swallow all manner of gear — pockets are divided inside to allow for easy storage and access to laptops and whatever else you might be carrying — and sports a buckle-closure pocket in front to mix things up a bit. But the Keith Haring print makes it pop, letting you get your art snob/social activist on in the most portable way. $149
Lincoln-Blacklabel-Gear-Patrol Lincoln Black Label
In another effort to redefine itself as a player in the luxury market, Lincoln’s Black Label line (out 2014) ups the interior-personalization ante of its models. Three styles are available: Modern Heritage, a fresh take on traditional luxury with a white-and-black color scheme; Indulgence, with a rich brown colorway and Zircote wood trim that’s straight out of the yachting world; and Center Stage, with Alcantara touchpoints and blazing red headliner. lincoln.com ()
BioLite-KettlePot-Gear-Patrol BioLite KettlePot
BioLite, those purveyors of gadget-charging camp equipment, have announced their latest gadget will be a clever send-up of a kettle (so you’ll never have to miss High Tea). The kettle sits atop your BioLite CampStove and functions like a cooking pot, but the folding handle and pour spout means it unloads like the real deal. Best part is, the KettlePot is designed to double as a carrying case for the CampStove. Kettleception. $50 ()
Spurcycle-Bicycle-Bell-Gear-Patrol Spurcycle Bicycle Bell
The dangers of urban cycling are myriad. Until now, alerting other road-goers has been somewhat embarrassing, what with the ubiquitous, anemic and tinny toy bells sold to cyclists. Spurcycle bells are hand machined and designed to be attractive and — more importantly — highly audible, and though the project is funded nearly nine times over, they probably wouldn’t mind ringing up another sale. $35
Unis-Shirts-Gear-Patrol UNIS T-shirts
“Wear clothes that fit” is probably the best piece of fashion advice any man can heed. But whereas the ’90s were heavy on loose-fitting, well, everything, nowadays the popular slim-cut has gotten a little too intense and Cling Wrap-esque. UNIS’s USA-made tees are neither too loose nor too tight for that Goldilocks fit that every man should strive for. Even better, simple colors and a choice between pocket or no pocket is all you’ll have to consider. $52+
Energizer-180-Watt-Cup-Inverter-Gear-Patrol Energizer 180-Watt Cup Inverter
If you’re running a jury-rigged mobile command unit out of your Civic, this is the device for you. It’ll rest inside your vehicle’s cupholder and powers itself via your cigarette lighter. With one standard outlet and four USB slots, you’ll never have to stop texting/reading/talking/Temple-Running while driving. $32
worn-wound-model-1-horween-watch-straps Worn & Wound Model 1 Horween Watch Straps
