Mankind isn’t meant to remain stationary. We’re roamers, ramblers, explorers, and wanderers at heart. Constantly seeking new territory and resources — discovering new ways in which to utilize the resources we have. Even something as simple as a weekend ride is living proof of our inherent desire to seek new experiences. Whether it be camping, road trips, or moving off the grid for a more hand’s on experience with the natural world, our desire to get up and get out is as innate as taking a breath of oxygen.
It’s here where we’ve seen a surge in durable goods to help facilitate this need to get out. To help us satiate the hunger pangs of travel without impeding our efforts. Who would have thought something as simple as a specially-built jacket, jeans, and some inspirational literature could serve such a noble purpose. Well, surprise-surprise; it does indeed. And here’s a little taste of some gear which does just that. Happy hunting.
Iron & Resin MP Service Boot
For over 165 years, White’s Boots has built heirloom-quality American-made work boots from fine high-quality leather. Now, Iron & Resin has joined forces with the brand to release a one-of-a-kind Military Police Boot modeled after WWII American infantry boots. And that’s just the beginning. Each pair is also handmade here in the USA with Cinnamon Horween leather and hosts a TPU rubber mini-lug outsole, nine solid brass eyelets, three solid brass speed hooks, and a single celastic toe box.
Iron & Resin Foundation Pocket Tee
Every guy needs a go-to tee. And with this USA-made Foundation Pocket Tee, you’ll find just that. Here, we have a classy graphic tee complete with handsome I&R branding, rear collar taping to prevent the neck from sagging, and a printed interior label for superior comfort.
Need some motivation for off-the-grid living? Or just a coffee table book to keep you motivated for that upcoming trip? The Hinterland is full of cabins, hideouts, and various other contemporary backcountry shacks that will certainly persuade you to ditch that urban lifestyle for a more “natural” approach to life.
Iron & Resin Tucker Wallet
No matter where the road takes you these days, you’ll need to keep your finances in order — this USA-made bifold leather wallet is just the thing. It’s made with 100 percent premium cowhide leather and hosts utility pockets on each side along with space for up to four cards in addition to a waxed bill pocket for good old cash when you need it.
Raen Remmy Sunglasses
Shades are a must. This is a no-brainer. So why not opt for this stylish pair of polarized Raen sunglasses complete with a handmade Zyl acetate frame and Carl Zeiss CR-39 lenses? Yeah, we figured this would be an easy choice.
Iron & Resin Enduro Denim
Over two painstaking years went into the development of these USA-made, insanely durable Enduro Denim Jeans. And we couldn’t be more thankful. Here, we have a classic-fitting pair with a slightly tapered cuff, western-style pocket shape, triple needle felled rise and back yoke, and double rear belt loop. Each pair is also reinforced with Dyneema and hosts custom Iron & Resin copper buttons and rivets for good measure.
Iron & Resin Rambler Jacket
Made right here in the USA, this 100 percent cotton 10z Martexin waxed canvas jacket is built for the road. Without a doubt a staple piece of outerwear that’s positioned to stand up to the elements at hand, each Rambler Jacket hosts button flap chest pockets, side welt hand pockets, a zippered front closure, and a standard fit.
Weiss Standard Issue Field Watch
Here’s the thing about watches. Not a whole lot are made in the United States. However, Weiss works constantly to break the mold with their handmade watches out of their Los Angeles workshop. And while the components themselves are indeed Swiss, just the fact that this reliable field watch is custom built on American soil is enough for us.
