12 Great Gifts from the Gear Patrol Store

March 7, 2017 Buying Guides By

The Gear Patrol store offers a hand-selected collection of products you’ll actually want — products that will inspire you on your own adventures. Below, find twelve of our favorite items, from an affordable new mug to an American-made hi-fi audio player.

Sanborn Red Enamel Camp Mug

The classic campsite cup, designed with double enamel coatings on the lip and handle and Sanborn Canoe Company’s tasteful logo. Best enjoyed around a campfire and filled with coffee, cocoa or whiskey.

Sanborn Firestarter Kit

Inside this small burlap sack are the sparks of a perfect summer night by the campfire: eight cedar fire starters, a waterproof match safe and some cedar kindling salvaged from Sanborn Canoe Co.’s shop floor in Winona, Minnesota.

Survival Laces 2.0

While we are confident that these survival laces will be a great necessity for your survival gear, we cannot guarantee that they will make you an expert survivalist. Although it would make for a good story, we do not wish for you to find yourself in the dismal situation of using the product to the fullest extent of its capabilities.

The Patrol Tee

The details matter, especially in everyday items. That’s why we chose to make our first-ever, (very) limited-edition Gear Patrol t-shirt in America, from a tri-blend of poly, cotton and rayon. It’s comfortable, it moves well and it boasts a slimmer fit. The logo is also screen printed with a premium, water-based ink.

Askov Finlayson Watch Cap

No one knows cold quite like those in the North. We paired up with Minneapolis-based fine-goods purveyor Askov Finlayson to design a warm, 100 percent wool beanie with a touch of orange suede.

U.S. Field Blanket

Don’t underestimate the power of a military-inspired blanket. Equal parts rough and tough, this field blanket is woven in Germany on an old Jaquard loom controlled by punched cards. The result is a super soft, super durable blanket perfect for lazing on the couch or watching the waves crash at the beach. Adding to its charm, this blanket is 100 percent cotton and machine washable.

Kammok Roo Camping Hammock

A camping hammock should be durable, but also comfortable. It’s still a hammock, you know? Can’t get that afternoon nap in if your hammock is subpar. This technically innovative, highly durable hammock is tear-resistant and roomy enough for two. Plus it packs easily into an attached water-resistant compression sack, getting down to the size of an angry blowfish. And if that isn’t a visual you want to have on hand at all times — what is?

Gray Aer Fit Pack

The Aer Fit Pack carries all that you need without bulky extra padding. Versatility, style and functionality — a perfect option for travel, work or play.

Hudson Hatchet

Inspired by similar tools used by fur traders of yore, but made with 5160 grade alloy steel and premium American hickory, this hatchet is small enough to fit in a backpack on your next adventure and sturdy enough to chop fuel for a bonfire. The blade is drop forged, machine ground and hand sharpened, and each comes with a protective leather sheath.

Symbol Audio Dovetail Record Crate

Up to 100 LPs fit nicely into this exquisite record crate, handmade from locally sourced walnut and white oak. At the corners, masterful craftsmanship can be seen in the exposed dovetail joinery, which adds not just beauty but also strength.

Travelteq x Gear Patrol Weekender

Handmade in Tuscany from an exclusive black ballistic nylon and vegetable-tanned leather details with a waterproof nylon lining. We collaborated with the experts at Travelteq to blend age-old Italian craftsmanship and smart design into one exclusive duffle bag with subtle GP badging and a GP blaze orange pocket liner. The rise-and-grind of everyday travel will be a breeze thanks to tech-forward materials and a bevy compartments to stash your phone, tablet, newspaper, sunglasses and favorite finds from the Gear Patrol Store.

Symbol Audio Tabletop HiFi

The Symbol Audio Tabletop HiFi adds a touch of elegance and a charge of sound to any room in your home. A wood-face panel hides a Class D amplifier and two 4-inch full-range drivers that can be accessed via Bluetooth, so you can stream music from any device to everyone in the room.

A daily magazine of immersive stories, deals, buying advice, product-forward editorial, and reports from far-flung places.
