Our team of writers, editors and all-around creatives does a lot of reading — whether it’s for fun, inspiration or even competitive research. And each of us has a favorite spot to chew on content, from local coffee shops to quiet hotel lounges. So, naturally, these are some of the places where we decided to stock the new issue Gear Patrol Magazine. Below, find a selection of spots to read the mag in a quiet lounge or even walk away with your own copy.
