Outside‘s Gear of the Year 2008

buyers guide summer 2008
Outside Online has posted it’s Gear of the Year for 2008 bringing us the latest in lust-worthy equipment for our next outdoor adventure.

As usual, they’ve broken the gear down into categories, highlighting some of the best new gear available, but in a new spin, instead of just reading a quick paragraph of impressions, Outside has leveraged the power of the Interwebs to deliver video reviews on Shells, Tents, Trail Runners, and Road Bikes.

For each category there are three videos available, so if you’re in the market for a new shell or a tent, they’re definitely worth checking out. Each video is hosted by Gear Editor Sam Moulton, who does a great job of explaining what’s good and what can be improved with the various items, as well as giving some nice tips on finding some good values as well.

On a side note, what do you think your gear closet looks like when your job title is “Gear Editor”. I think I’d need to buy a bigger place. 🙂
