Scoured: Best Gear on Gallantry

With just 2 weeks to go until an entire day dedicated to baseball, hot dogs, and apple pie is among us, we just couldn’t help but get a little pre-July 4th festive with this month’s Gallantry scoured guide. It’s the peak of summer no doubt, and while things are heating up out there we figured a little red white and blue patriotic loadout was in order.

It’s also for this reason that we worked to include a few USA-made items into this round-up. Including the likes of legacy brand Filson, and EDC specialist Machine Era. We also managed to include some essentials for those pocket knife welding and bourbon drinking individuals – though hopefully not at the same time – as well as a fine white-dial timepiece to make sure you’re ahead of schedule this leisurely holiday.
