Good morning. Got a case of the Mondays? Whether you’ve seen it or not, you should take the morning off and (re)watch Office Space, or at least save it for later. It’ll help. (Did you know that the TPS in “TPS reports” stands for “Test Program Set?” Knowledge!)

What’s New, Now
Ministry of Supply Going Places Shorts
The secret ingredient supporting Ministry of Supply’s every-occasion shorts is its Going Places fabric, an abrasion- and wrinkle-resistant polyester warp knit that wicks moisture and stretches, which is good for, well, everything. The shorts allow for more movement — even with a tailored fit — and Ministry of Supply has fine-tuned the length to hit the sweet spot: right above the knee. Use code GEARPATROL17 at checkout and get the perfect summer shorts for 15% off.
Apple Watch Pride Edition Woven Nylon Strap
The Pride Edition band has been out for a while now, but Apple has just added to its product page that a portion of proceeds will benefit groups like “GLSEN, PFLAG and The Trevor Project in the U.S. and ILGA internationally.”
Wanderlust: A Hiker’s Companion
If you’re a slower Forrest Gump, take a walk with this guidebook, which features “legendary walking routes with inviting maps, practical tips, and inspiring landscape photographs.” Just get the right boots first.
Joule Big Clamp Sous Vide Cooler Attachment
Sometimes the smallest tools make the biggest difference. Case in point: the Joule Big Clamp by ChefSteps, a plastic clip that attaches to a Joule circulator and can be opened wide enough to hook on to the lip of a hard-side cooler, enabling large-format sous-vide cooking. Whether for tailgates, beach barbecues, cookouts or parties, there’s no easier, better or more hands-off way to feed a crowd.
Nike Air Max 1 Premium “Ridgeway”
Neutral, natural tones and mixed materials with a pop of “turbo green” will pop like a Curtis Granderson fly ball this summer.
Inventery Ring Trinket
From the Gear Patrol Store: Surgical stainless steel with an added rivet as “a reference to all things mechanical.”
