Take a Sneak Peek Inside Issue Three of the Gear Patrol Magazine

For the third issue of Gear Patrol Magazine, we traveled near and far for stories about people, places and, of course, great gear.


It’s been one hell of a year. While I spent much of it traveling between our HQ in Midtown Manhattan and the Hudson Valley, I saw our members of our team set off on journeys of their own — some to Cuba, some to Germany, others to Sweden and to L.A. We also dispatched a small team to to report on the Ossabaw Island hog, America’s so-called “miracle pig,” while another followed a team of elite female cyclists, racing for recognition, in Wisconsin. Our combined mission: to produce Gear Patrol Magazine: Issue Three, 320 pages full of people, products and places — stories we hope will inspire you to take journeys of your own. See below for a sneak preview. – Jack Seemer
