Find one of these medallions Friday and win

Friday, October 14th is the ‘National Day of Adventure and we’re teaming up with Victorinox Swiss Army to celebrate, scavenger hunt style!

We’ve hidden medallions in four cities around the country: Los Angeles, Seattle, the Twin Cities, and Short Hills, New Jersey. We’ll drop clues on their locations via the GearDrop website at 2:00 p.m., kicking off the hunt!

New York City is the setting for the largest GearDrop. Fifty medallions are hidden around Manhattan. If you find one, you win a prize. Be sure to visit the Victorinox Swiss Army Store in Rockefeller Center on Friday at noon to get a map and get started.

Don’t live in a GearDrop city? Fear not, there is a national grand prize package, open to everyone. In total, GearJunkie and Victorinox Swiss Army are giving out $12,000 in prizes.

Ready for the hunt? Here’s how to get started, and below is what’s on the line.

Gear Drop Prizes



Snag a medallion and you could take home a GearDrop Grand Prize Package from Victorinox Swiss Army. This includes the 39-function “go-anywhere, do-anything, know-it-all” SwissTool, the water-, fire-, and acid-resistant I.N.O.X. leather watch, and their hardshell, expandable storage carry-on.

Didn’t know Victorinox Swiss Army made a bike tool? Well, it does and it’s called, appropriately enough, the BikeTool. Tire levers, Hex, Torx, and Phillips wrenches, and more, all under 100 grams.
