A recap of popular stories this week, July 22-28, 2018.

1) Outdoor Retailer ‘Best In Show’ Summer Gear 2019

GearJunkie checked out hundreds of products to be released in 2019 at this year’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market show. This year’s Best In Show awards highlighted quirky inventions and core tents.

2) Essentials for Easy Off-the-Grid Living

Can you say dream home? Our contributors purchased a rugged off-the-grid cabin in the Pacific Northwest. With a nearby waterfall, a build from rough-hewn logs, and no cell service, it sounds like heaven.

This is their favorite gear to make off-the-grid living easier, ready for prospective hermits.

3) Did The North Face Develop the World’s Best Shoe Rubber?

Whether it’s a shoe failing to grip on a sheer ridge or the simple slip on a rainy trail, loss of traction can quickly turn into a trip to the hospital.

The North Face launches new hiking boots and trail running shoes next year with what the brand claims is the best rubber system yet.

4) Truck Drawer System: How I Built Out My Pickup Bed

The least discussed — and arguably most crucial — part of nomadic life is storage. One of our contributors built out his Tacoma for life on the road, complete with a handmade extendable truck bed drawer.

This article is about that drawer. And about how it helps him adventure more.

5) Outdoor Retailer Showcase: 4 Gear Tests at Demo Day

Demo day gives brands a chance to showcase next year’s gear in its natural habitat. GearJunkie was on site, testing core sea kayaks and quirky paddleboard floats.

Read our story about the most eye-catching finds at demo day.
