Gear Patrol Magazine – Issue 09
Gear Patrol is a New York City-based lifestyle publication focused on the intersection of products and life’s pursuits.
WELCOME TO ISSUE NINE
Dedicated to the love of collecting, Issue Nine is an all-new exploration of products through the quests they inspire, answering not just how or what we collect, but why. With over 200 pages of our signature product journalism, packed with insightful reviews, product inspiration and great design, Issue Nine is the perfect way to mark our official shift upward to quarterly publishing.
Issue Nine introduces a new structure to the Gear Patrol Magazine in three parts: The Guide, a series of briefings and reviews focused on gear; Features, stories of makers, models and exemplars worthy of deeper exploration; and Intel, our take on the pillars of product acumen — knowledge, style and opinion.
The Guide: Read our thoughts on the Leica Q2, Laurent Ferrier’s Annual Calendar and The Macallan’s non-age-statement scotch and tour the Tested series for field notes on the new AGV AX9 motorcycle helmet, Salomon’s hi-tech trail runners and a fresh spirit from the world’s first ‘nomadic distillery.’
Features: Visit the firey forge of knife maker Laguiole and discover why the French government isn’t enforcing its trademark blade, learn the product alphabet with the A to Z of collecting, and ride through surfing history with an insider look at a one-of-a-kind cache of historic boards.
Intel: Channel your inner sneakerhead with our in-depth look at the secondary market of kicks, Talk Shop and Norton motorcycles with Jersey City’s go-fast guru Kenny Cummings and see why creators rarely see their best sellers coming in The Conversation with the founders of Blu Dot and Lichen.
Get all this and much more with Issue Nine, The Collecting Issue.
