Brute-Cooler-Gear-Patrol Brute Box Coolers
For those extended hunting excursions or summer BBQs with serious stamina, these coolers keep your ice solid for an entire weekend (the larger sizes, up to an entire week). Rubber gaskets seal with a cantilever hinge system make sure your perishables stay un-perished inside the thick, pressure-injected insulated walls. Made in America and priced high — because it’s the last cooler you’ll ever have to buy. $229+ ()
5-Owls-Gear-Patrol 5owls Ranger 2 Personal Shelter
5owls took the classic ultralight personal bivy and beefed it up, adding a built-in sleeping bag rated to 15 degrees and pimping out the overhead cover to include a “moonroof”. In case of bad weather, the overhead tent seals shut and the sleeping bag is reinforced with waterproof flooring. The entire system weighs just 8 pounds 8 ounces for easy carrying and comes with an optional sleeping pad compartment (pad not included). $399 ()
Supreme-Towel-Gear-Patrol Supreme Box Logo Beach Towel
Supreme’s classic Barbara-Kruger inspired logo sits prominently on this all-white cotton beach towel. When dealing with a company who works in paisley and graphic patterns, sometimes you’ve got to cherish the empty space. $48 ()
Drop-Scale-Gear-Patrol Drop iPad-connected Scale & Digital Baking Assistant
Ostensibly, baking should just be following directions, but even that gets a little tricky sometimes. This scale syncs with your iPad to tell you the next step on the road to the perfect pastry, halves, quarters or doubles your recipe automatically, allows you to measure all the ingredients in the same bowl and helps find substitutes if you run low on anything. The app will alert you when your food is ready and automatically skips to the next step after you add the correct ingredients, saving you from a sticky screen.$80
Bike-Lock-Gear-Patrol Nyan Nyan Factory Woven Bike Locks
Lock your fixed gear with a world-class bike chain that doesn’t look like it was refurbished from an industrial complex. They’re covered in brightly colored weaved polypropylene bands to keep metal off your shirt and look far better than a rusty chain when wrapped around your shoulder or waist. Their colorways are, we assume, inspired by nyancat. $65+
Fruit-Delivery-Gear-Patrol Good Eggs
Eating local is tasty and good for the environment — and now, pretty easy. Instead of elbowing hipsters out of the way at your local farmer’s market, anyone near the Bay Area, Brooklyn, Los Angeles or New Orleans has the option to have local groceries delivered to their door (or held at a convenient pick-up location). The menu varies with the seasons, and clicking on an item lets you learn about the farm from which your produce came. Goodeggs.com
