Roots-XL-Gear-Patrol Roots XL Summer Collection
For many, summer means tank tops — but our friends up north needn’t forgo sleeves. For them, we recommend Roots’ just-launched XL collection, an understated set of shirts, sweaters and shorts made from lightweight double-knit jersey and designed by Adrian Aitcheson. Think of it as a collection of subtle street wear and less neon gym attire. $45
Treeline-Gear-Patrol Treeline Outdoors Roof-Top Tent, Gen 2
Simple summer staples are “good enough” by nature — until someone makes some tweaks. Perched atop a motor vehicle, Treeline Outdoors’ original rooftop tent made your car into a car camping mega tent. The new model features a lightweight, curved foldout design that sheds water with ease, plus rainfly skylights, a waterproof underside and plenty of storage accouterments. Once assembled, the folded tent fits comfortably atop a van or in the bed of a truck. treelineoutdoors.com
Ruffwear-Gear-Patrol Ruffwear Load Up Harness
No man should leave his best friend behind for a camping trip. (We mean the dog.) Make sure your pooch is secured and comfortable on the bumpy road to the campsite with this harness, which has been tested to withstand vehicle crash tests (according to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213). Simply attach it to a seatbelt, strap the dog in and rest assured your companion won’t land face down after a hard stop. $80
Rewilder-Gear-Patrol Rewilder Caution Collection
Make sure you you carry your wilderness miscellany in a bag that was made with respect to the wilderness. Rewilder’s new “Caution” collection is a series of striking red totes and pouches handmade from salvaged post-consumer waste, all from a Los Angeles-based facility the company touts as being devoted to fair wages. rewilder.com
Moleskine-App-Gear-Patrol Moleskine Timepage App
If you’ve still got too much work to make your escape to the wild, Moleskine’s new Timepage scheduler app could be a good tool to square away the last of your work in as little time as possible. It syncs all of your calendars and schedules — along with associated weather forecasts, maps and contacts — into one clean stream of events you can scroll through with ease. Hide and highlight certain calendar events with mere swipes and taps, and enjoy transit, contact and locale suggestions based on your history, among other features. Compatible with iCloud, Google and Microsoft Exchange calendars; available on iPhone and Apple Watch. $5
Preston-Gear-Patrol Impressed Bag Co.
When you’re finally ready to welcome the end of the fiscal year, you should make sure your suit is ready too. And Impressed Bag Co.’s innovative duffel will keep it that way, using a series of magnets to keep your suit — and your gym clothes, should you desire — readily pressed. $350
