HOW TO USE GEAR PATROL
First and foremost, Gear Patrol is a service for you. We want to help upgrade every facet of your life. That said, you should treat our content as entertainment and purely as recommendations/opinion, not edict. It’s advice. That’s it. We are not responsible for outlandish misintepretations of our content. What you do under the influence is your own business. Oh, and you must be 18 and older, no exceptions.
We pour a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this damn site so don’t copy without proper attribution – give credit where credit is due. We don’t like rat-bastards and copyright infringers. Now, on to more legal mumbo jumbo:
