Mission

Our mission is simple. We are a team of creators, users and enthusiasts building the definitive resource for discovering products and the stories that surround them. At Gear Patrol, we believe everyone deserves the best product.

Gear Patrol's product journalism reaches over 5.5 million monthly readers online and in our quarterly print magazine. Our scope includes everything from cars to home, style to tech, outdoors to watches — all covered through the lens of products. Gear Patrol and our content studio arm, Gear Patrol Studios have been awarded by the Webbys, OMMA, Min, Folio, and Communication Arts among many others. In 2019, our staff was awarded by Digiday for the Most Passionate Employees. And in 2018, Gear Patrol received an investment from Hearst Magazines, one of the world’s largest publishers of magazine media, to further accelerate our mission.

Products don't just fill the empty spaces in our homes. We believe products have the power to enrich and empower the lives of both discerning enthusiasts and everyday consumers.

We aim to share fresh perspectives on products. Moreover, we cater to enthusiasts of all stripes. The best products, and thus recommendations, are empathetic — not exclusive.
