Two of my favorite websites have teamed up to bring us more outdoor adventure and gear news. The Gear Junkie will be contributing a weekly column to Outside Online, the official website of Outside Magazine. This new feature will be called “The Gear Junkie Scoop” and will focus on “news, hot products, and to-be-released gear and apparel from all corners of the outdoors industry.”
The first entry into this new column is on Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Mattress, a new air mattress that reportedly packs as small as a Nalgene bottle, but still offers as much warmth and comfort as a traditional mattress. Officially announced last week, but not available until next Spring, the mattress offers a ton of promise, and The Gear Junkie has the scoop on it now.
This seems like it should be another great collaboration. The Gear Junkie, also known as Stephen Regenold, has been writing about new gear in his syndicated column for over five years, and has increasingly reported on adventurous activities as well. Outside‘s history and reputation in these areas is also well known, and I’m sure we’ll get some great gear news and reviews out of this.
