Just like that, the first quarter of the year is in the final stretch. While it seems a little unreal that the months are flying by as fast as they are – there is still a long way to go in 2017. And there is no better reminder of that than the substantial chill that is still hanging over much of the country.
Not to fear. In our minds, there is really no better way to beat back cold days and crisp winds than with a solid outer layer. The one that sits in the center of this month’s Scoured, for example, is more than capable. Of course, that isn’t all chilly weather requires. Boots, tunes, a solid edc knife, and something to keep the time never hurt either. If you are looking to add a bit more to your wardrobe or carry this month, be sure to take a scroll through and look at the best gear on Amazon this March.
The Art of Not Giving A F
This New York Times Bestseller is a straightforward, no B.S. guide to living a good life in a flawed world.

Hydro Flask Water Bottle
SOG Voodoo Hawk Mini
A brutal little hawk with a blade made from 3Cr13MoV steel, and a handle built from glass-reinforced nylon. Also, its rubberized grip on the handle makes for a solid hold, and the included ballistic nylon storage sheath keeps it protected during travel. Chop chop.

Alpha Industries MA-1 Flight Jacket
A lot of people make bomber jackets. However, not a lot of people do it well. Alpha Industries, however, is one of the few that does.
