Today in Gear: The Titanium Pen You Won’t Want to Share, a Nike Sneaker Made for the Olympics & More


February 6, 2020 Briefings By

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.


It is always a smart idea to carry your own pen. Sure, there are always communal pens around, with the chewed up ends, running out of ink and just generally kinda gross. So why not carry your own high-quality writing instrument? The Ti Mini Pen was designed to be a pen always at your side, but never in the way, and is made to hold up for the long haul. The Ti Mini comes in at just three inches tall, but don’t let its diminutive size fool you — it’s built from titanium and can withstand just about anything. It’s available in three different finishes including machined raw, stonewashed and DLC black, so you can find one of these Big Idea Design Ti Mini’s that best suits your everyday.
