Lexdray-Vienna-Copenhagen-and-Dubai-bags-Gear-Patrol Lexdray Vienna, Copenhagen and Dubai Bags
These limited-run packs are ready for globetrotting duty with water-resistant fabric and high-grade hardware. Black models come with black lining; blue models with camo.

Rogue-Bakery-Gear-Patrol Rogue Bakery Ranch Cookies
What makes a cookie a cookie? Not shape, not chocolate — could it be the sweetness? Probably not, but that doesn’t mean you have to go all Rogue and make decidedly UNsweet cookies like these fiendish, savory, Ranch-flavored treats. They’ll make your tastebuds go all Scanners, for sure, but are also decidedly tasty. Tastier yet are the other special (and more conventional) sweets from this Columbus, Ohio bakery — all of which are creative combos of flavors, none of which are insane like these Ranch guys. (But get some anyway.) roguebakery.com
canada-goose-gear-patrol Levi’s x Canada Goose
Quick! Name two brands that have been around forever and have transcended purpose-built workwear to become style icons. Now take the best aspects from each and use them to make excellent outerwear. Canada Goose and Levi’s have partnered up to put a limited-editon denim twist on two parkas and a vest. Red and gold Arctic-Tech fabric paired with denim accents should go over better than other Levi’s collaborations. Available October. Levi.com
HP-Chromebook-Gear-Patrol HP Chromebook
HP’s version of the Chromebook — a netbook running Google’s slick Chrome browser-based OS — runs a 14-inch display, weighs a hair over four pounds, boots in 7 seconds and will run for over nine hours on a charge. That’s, like, an entire season of OITNB. Perfect. $300
Leather-MA-1-Flight-Jacket-Gear-Patrol Alpha Industries MA-1 Flight Jacket
We’re nervous to get out our credit card for this one, lest we tumble down a slippery slope to looking too awesome (note: must buy patches). This is the flight jacket you’ve been waiting for, traditional, classic, and timeless. Its trim silhouette features diamond-padded lining for extra warmth up in the stratosphere, and the utility pocket inside means you can always pull Man Duty if the need arises. $325
GoPro-Studio-2.0-Gear-Patrol GoPro Studio 2.0
Video junkies will appreciate the ease-of-use factor in GoPro’s newest Studio release. They’ve curated their best GoPro videos — completed ones with sounds, edits, etc. — and converted them to templates wherein users just drag and drop their own clips for an instant professional-grade video. Manual editing is also available. Control film speed, add audio tracks and/or music, utilize still frames at full res, and more. gopro.com
TaylorMade-SpeedBlade-Iron-Gear-Patrol TaylorMade SpeedBlade Irons
These two-tone satin irons are all about making your next swing better. The Speed Pocket — a groove milled out of the bottom of the sole — adds extra flex to the strike surface, meaning there’s more bounce-back after you hit the ball. That means a faster ball, which means distance. And that means your buddy will owe you a couple beers after you hit the links. $800
