Scoured: The Best Gear on Amazon

Well, that’s all folks. Out with one season and in with another. Just like that the beaches are cleared, Labor Day barbecues are over (though the hangover may not be), and the time has come to start looking toward the next round of festivities — here’s to your fall beer drinking season. And yet, with the thought of summer in the rear view as saddening as it may be, the notion of entering the throes of fall’s fiery transition is as welcome as the cool air soon to follow suit.

Along those lines, what’s also welcome is some reprieve from the unrelenting sun. Meaning, black is back in season this time of year. From flannels to hiking boots, to knives and trucker wallets, if it’s blacked-out, bring it on. We’re naturally of the same persuasion, which is why this month’s round of scoured Amazon gear is as dark as the long nights ahead.
