Web Crush of the Week: Gear Patrol
Posted by: Karen Kleckner Keefe

Looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift for the hip dad in your life? Check out the reviews on Gear Patrol for the coolest in books with high-style, guy appeal.”Gear Patrol is a gathering place for guys hell bent on making the most of their time on planet Earth in the 21st century. What we do is what magazines have always done: provide a filter on the world, our take on what’s valuable and interesting, using original photography and thoughtful storytelling — but with the agility a website affords. That means we can tap dance between piping hot news, valuable, richly researched insights and timeless stories about people and far-off places, on the same day, on the same page, from our HQ in New York or anywhere else in the world. We value our long game and our short game equally.” [Strong self-esteem recommended. Even the most tuned-in urban sophisticate may feel like a bit of a bumpkin after reading.]
