Gear Patrol Magazine: Issue 3
This size is sold out.
In this issue, we take you on a 190-mile dog sled adventure across the desolate Arctic Circle, share a thoughtful commentary from an American tourist venturing into the confounding and vibrant culture of Cuba, and survive a private session on the world’s most notorious track, the Nürburgring, behind the wheel of what might just be Porsche’s greatest car. Elsewhere, we dispatched teams to Los Angeles and New York’s Hudson Valley for a fresh perspective from the designers, makers and creators advancing their crafts.
We also have three fascinating special reports for you. Associate Editor Chris Wright takes us down south to Georgia’s Ossabaw Island for a look inside the quiet battle raging over America’s miracle pig (yes, that’s right, a miracle pig); Deputy Managing Editor Matthew Ankeny follows a cadre of elite female cyclists who embody the ideal of “for the love of sport”; and lastly, in the wake of the FTC’s legislative hammer-drop on those egregiously using the term “Made in America,” we survey the new crop of American-made timepieces. The results may surprise you.
And if it’s gear you’re after, we have you kitted out for the cold months ahead with a guide to winter boots, German beer, the ultimate café racer kit, a drive in the badass Mercedes-Benz 4x4 (squared), five perfect examples of why your next watch should be thin and rose gold, and an alluring look at this season’s best new shirts captured by photographer Neave Bozorgi. You'll also find an inside look at where Leica makes its stories lenses and the Nomos watch factory.
