Roller-Bag-Gear-Patrol Travelteq Inside Out Carry On
Travelteq is taking to the crowds and the clouds with their new suitcase. The durable PVC-coated polyester roller packs big wheels, sturdy materials and a whole load of pockets into an international carry-on size. Travelteq has decided to crowd fund the first batch of them to ensure demand, so if you want to get it for half the planned retail price, order by May 23rd. $172
Audi-R8-LMX-Gear-Patrol Audi R8 LMX
If you were wondering if Audi and BMW have stopped bickering with one another, the R8 LMX should answer any lingering questions. Not too long ago BMW announced that the new i8 would be packing laser headlights and now Audi — presumably wanting to preserve their illumination legacy — have introduced the R8 LMX featuring…laser headlights. Naturally, the limited run of 99 will (by the slimmest of margins) be on sale before that other supercar from Bavaria. Oh, and you also get a 570 hp V10, exclusive Crystal Blue paint and the power to wage a war on vampires.
Rapha-House-Industries-Gear-Patrol Rapha x House Industries Caps
If you happen to be nearby during the Amgen Tour of California (May 11-18), be sure to swing by the folks at Rapha for a couple exclusives. Our favorite has to be their partnership with Delaware-based design power-squad House Industries on a limited run of cycling caps for each stage. Best pick one up (and grab a gratis espresso) while you can.
Bang-and-Olufsen-Beovision-Avant-Gear-Patrol Bang and Olufsen BeoVision Avant
Oh, your TV just sits there, not moving at the push of a button? How quaint. The BeoVision Avant is a 55-inch 4K display with fetching good looks, built in three-channel audio that magically emerges from the bottom of the set, and a host of other technologically advanced features that make your current TV seem a little too lowly. Then there’s the fact that it can pivot and tilt up to 90 degrees if you buy the motorized wall mount, floor mount or table stand. You can go back to staring at your decidedly static peasant-tube now. $8,000
Bamford-Cycle-Dept-Gear-Patrol Bamford Cycle Department
Bamford Watch Department, the blokes that brought you famous custom Rolexes, have ventured on to two wheels with their latest endeavor. They’re offering entirely custom carbon bikes that can be made with specific measurements and ride characteristics in mind, which likely won’t come cheap — but the level performance and personalization should be unmatched.
Filson-Bags-Gear-Patrol Filson x Magnum Photography Bags
Filson has teamed up with arguably the coolest photographic cooperative in the world to produce some supremely functional camera bags with the serious shooter in mind. Specifically, Filson has teamed up with photographers Steve McCurry and David Allan Harvey to make a bags for each to carry every day. Harvey’s messenger bag and tote are lightweight affairs that lend themselves to his one camera, one lens shooting style while McCurry’s backpack and messenger are slightly more full featured but still focused heavily on cutting weight and extraneous features. Whichever you pick there’s no doubt you’ll end up with a pro quality bag.
