Starting this week, I’ve teamed with Outside magazine to pen a new Gear Junkie initiative. “The Gear Junkie Scoop” launched today, and as a weekly column it will cover news, hot products, and to-be-released gear and apparel from all corners of the outdoors industry.
The column, found here — outsideblog.away.com/blog/the_gear_junkie_scoop — will stand as my second major gear piece every week, following the regular Gear Junkie column, which focuses on in-depth gear reviews and comes out every Monday afternoon.
My first Gear Junkie Scoop looks at a to-be-unveiled 9-ounce sleeping pad purported to pack down to the size of a Nalgene bottle. Read on for the secrets of this latest Therm-a-Rest magic mattress right here. . . http://outside-blog.away.com/blog/the-gear-junkie-scoop/
