This weekend, Gear Patrol traveled to the United Kingdom to explore the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The celebration takes place on the 12,000-acre Goodwood Estate, and centers around the Hillclimb. There, cars from every era climb a long and winding road through the British countryside. New, cutting-edge models from everyone from Bentley to Ferrari took their turn racing up the hill to secure the fastest time; while 100+ year old models ambled up the path just to show off. Notably, the McMurtry Spéirling set a new Goodwood record by climbing the hill in just 39.08 seconds. Couldn’t get a ticket? Check out our favorite festival highlights in our Instagram stories. Today we’re looking at 3D printed protein bars, a fly fishing neckerchief and the 2023 F-150 Heritage Edition. This is Today in Gear.

It also features two rooms – an inner room and gathering space – and fans can easily add an additional Zekka Inner Room to create another sleeping space. Built to comfortably host six, the tent retails at $3,000.
Both WESN and Pioneer Carry celebrate a commitment to modern design, practicality and comfort. Consequently, coming together to work on this project felt natural, and resulted in the immediately coveted Pioneer Microblade and Global Pouch. The microblade is made with S35vn steel and features a milled titanium handle. It fits perfectly into the Global Pouch, which is made of 10XD; an extremely strong material (in fact WESN claims its the world’s strongest fiber) that combines Pioneer’s custom blend of UHMWPE (ultra high-molecular-weight-polyethylene) and nylon. Available for $170, supplies are extremely limited, so make sure to shop the kit now.
