Patagonia gear and duffels are needed year round, but summer is when you can get some of the classics from last year on an unbeatable discount. Good things come to those who wait. Here are some of our favorite Patagonia products and where you can find them for the cheapest price.   ....
Vanlife can seem like an amazing way to declutter your life and see more of the world. It can also be rather expensive. New vans without modifications can start in the $30,000 range and go up from there. Add in the cost of the modifications, and you can be looking at almost six figures if you have the work done professionally. You could also try it before you buy it!
Love maps? Still need to find the right gift for the holidays? Local designer and Outdoor Project collaborator Greg Jones [1] recently started 54X40, a business that creates artifacts, elements of education, and pieces of art inspired by nature and geography.
We asked the community to share their favorite adventure reads and we've put together a pretty good list. In no particular order are some great trail, or cozy-by-the-fire, reads to fuel your next outdoor adventure. Have more to add?
We think the greatest gift is that of an outdoor adventure, and that means having the right gear to keep you warm, safe and entertained.
Everyone expects to see a plethora of new products and new innovative designs at Outdoor Retailer, the outdoor industry's premiere trade show held in Salt Lake City every year. This year was a little different.
It's the time of year when everyone is making their holiday wish lists and brands are sharing holiday gift guides for adventurous families, the lumberjack in your life, outdoor gals, four-legged friends, bikers, skiers, campers, glampers, and everything in between. We all love gear, no doubt about it.
There are times when you want to curl up in your tent on the ground, and there are other times you'd prefer something a bit more removed from the elements. In the past few years the options for retrofitted, up-cycled, remodeled, rejuvenated, and just plain cool camping vans, trailers, and vehicle-mounted-tents has expanded like crazy.
Rock climbing, intro to backcountry skiing, a surf lesson, rafting trip, photography workshop...these are all amazing outdoor experiences that should be on the top of your holiday wish list. Don't get me wrong, I love a well stocked gear closet as much as anyone, but at some point you don't need more stuff. You need experiences.
This sequel to Give the Gift of Adventure: Outdoor Experiences [1] offers even more gift ideas this holiday. Why not give the gift of an amazing experience, something your friends and family will remember forever? A key element of any adventure is determining where you rest and recharge for the day ahead. Where do you spend the night after a long day of skiing?
Not sure what to get the adventurers whose gear closet overfloweth? You can always give the gift of adventure by getting a certificate for a ski tour, a mountaineering or climbing course, or a photography or ski-building workshop.
