Best Of The Best… ‘Top Gear’ Of The Year

It’s the end of 2013, and as is our annual traditional a time to look back at the best gear we tested this year. Of the hundreds of products GearJunkie staff and team athletes put through the paces these items stood out as some of the best. Congrats to all the winners. This gear represents the state of the art in outdoors equipment and gear design today.
