As a season of transition, Fall’s timeless charm isn’t exclusive to temperate afternoons and crisp nights. There’s also the effects of that weather pattern to consider — the fruits of the season if you will. Notable traditions like harvest beer, festivals, welcomed whiskey, and fiery foliage among the mountains, uplands, and eventually the lowlands at flora and fauna prepare themselves for that inevitable first freeze of the season. Bright hues of orange and red need not lend themselves specifically to our vegetation either. There’s also the gear to consider.
That’s where Gallantry comes into play. Offering a slew of handy high-vis gear for both the outdoors and city life — basically wherever the season takes you. For as we all know, this is our last chance to enjoy some semblance of warmth before the frigid gates of winter securely latch themselves shut behind us. In this instance, best make hay while the sun is still shining — or at least get some gear in the meantime.
