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

It’s the end of 2014, and as is our annual traditional it is 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. From a new kind of suspension fork to a rechargeable camp lantern, to “floating” tents, this gear represents the state of the art in outdoors equipment and product design today.
