Because sometimes the best adventures happen right around the corner. Where you live. In the city even. True adventurers know it's less about the exact location and more about having a good time wherever you may be. - Which is why we're teaming up with @yeti to bring you some of the raddest urban adventures out there. - Full video and info here: https://gearjunkie.com/p/yeti-great-urban-outdoors ☝️link in profile - #adventurestartshere

Looking for a boat you can take everywhere? The foldable Oru Kayak may be just what you need. - As our reviewer wrote, "The sheet of plastic is scored and notched, an intricate pattern that folds tight and packs up box-shape to fit in a backpack. Undo the package, crease the material at its flex points, and fasten the straps. Soon, a kayak will emerge." - Full review here: https://gearjunkie.com/pack-up-oru-kayak-review-bay ☝️link in profile - And big thanks to @theninoknowledge for the awesome picture and paddle inspiration! -

Congratulations @kilianjornet! - We knew he was a premiere ultramarathoner, but it's now proven he's tough as nails after winning the Hardrock 100 with his arm in a sling! - "The Hardrock 100 Endurance Race is a revered event. The mountainous trail race crosses 100.5 miles of rugged Rocky Mountain terrain near Silverton, Colo. Runners must cross 13 major passes from 12,000′ to 13,000′. - Jornet finished in 24:32:22, his fourth-straight Hardrock win, and he did it with an injured, apparently dislocated shoulder. He ran with the injury for nearly 86 grueling miles." - Read all about it here: https://gearjunkie.com/kilian-jornet-wins-hardrock-100-dislocated-shoulder ☝️link in profile
