History of GearJunkie

GearJunkie was founded in 2002 as a nationally-syndicated newspaper column created by Stephen Regenold, a Minneapolis-based journalist and lifelong outdoors “junkie.” As a climber and competitive endurance athlete, Regenold traveled the world to test gear and cover the outdoors industry. The newspaper column morphed into a digital publication in 2006, and today GearJunkie.com employs writers, journalists, projects, sales, and support staff from offices based in Denver and Minneapolis.
