Video: ‘Ultimate Gear Test’

In a post earlier this month, Jason Magness, a GearJunkie contributor and founder of the YogaSlackers group, rated the best and worst equipment he used, abused and destroyed during the 2011 Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race. This new video, edited by Magness and shot in the wilds of Patagonia by Daniel Staudigel (both members of Team, offers a rare peek into the Wenger race, where Team GJ (Magness, Staudigel, Chelsey Gribbon and Gear Junkie Founder, Stephen Regenold) pushed their bodies and their gear to utter ends on a multi-day course to take 2nd place. Significant swamp trekking, bushwhacking, coasteering, and fjord swimming included in the action!
