No matter if your definition of work includes hardhats or leaf blowers, Filson Lined Goatskin Gloves ($70) will keep your hands protected while on the job. Made from 100% goatskin, these gloves feature a luxurious lining of merino wool, ensuring that your hands stay warm and dry.
If you need a cooler that can withstand damn near anything — including a run-in with a wild grizzly bear — look no farther. Yeti Coolers ($160-$1,100) are made using the same rotational-molding method used to make whitewater kayaks, and feature unbreakable hinges, ATV-tested rubber T latches, handles made from marine-grade nylon with a ribbed rubber grip, screw-in, gasketed, leak-proof drain plugs, and integrated padlock ports on both corners. Our 25-quart Yeti Roadie cooler has been the perfect size, and has gotten a ton of use (and abuse) this summer. One word: hardcore.
Fly fishing is about as old-school a fishing experience as you can find, so why not match the timelessness of the activity with some vintage gear? George Lawrence Creels ($1,800-$2,500) are the perfect way to do so while keeping your bounty safe at your side. Offering traditional, artisan-level craftsmanship and materials, these utilitarian designs look as good now as they did 70 years ago when they were built.
