Gore-Tex innovates even more with the high performance ePE fabric.

Gore-Tex is already leading the charge on weatherproof performance gear. The brand is now innovating again via its ePE membrane. Basically, it “takes advantage of a high strength-to-weight ratio” that combines with the polyurethane to create a even more resistant and waterproof textile (with a reduced environmental footprint). You’ll find it soon in brands like adidas, Arc’teryx and Patagonia.


SNGLRTY makes a case for the single hand watch with the Blue Steel OHI-4.

It is not common to see a watch with a single hand; a timepiece that displays the hours and minutes with a single hand simultaneously. The SNGLRTY taps into this minimalist style with a unique counterclockwise spinning minute disc that spins opposite the watch hand. Call Derek Zoolander, this unique version of Blue Steel is sure to give the model’s signature look great value.


Ask an expert

A Equipment patrol the reader asks: “I see a lot of men’s gear, but where’s the women’s gear? We work, cycle and hike, where’s our gear?

The expert: “Thank you for submitting this question! First and foremost, Gear Patrol focuses on producing top journalism, and many of the products we cover are gender independent. That said, when it comes to clothing, we tend to focus on men’s products.

Most of the brands we highlight create similar, if not identical, pieces in men’s and women’s (or unisex) sizes. In outerwear and athletic wear, some of the genre’s most inclusive brands include Space Titans, like Patagonia and The North Face. But there are definitely some brands focused on ladies-only clothing that are worth highlighting here. We consulted with several members of our team and editors to highlight a few of their favorite brands.

Running / Sportswear

Alder clothing


Ten Speed ​​Hero
Machines for freedom

Work clothes

Dovetail work clothes

We know this is not an exhaustive list, but hopefully this is a head start on some truly top brands that span the spectrum of style and fitness! ”- Gregory Babcock, Associate Editor (with the help of the entire Gear Patrol team)
