If you haven’t had your fill of holiday gear guides just yet, I have another very good one one to share. OutdoorX4 magazine – an outlet that I contribute to on a regular basis – has released its first ever Gear Issue, and it is filled with great reviews of some of the best products around. While the magazine does have an off-road/overlanding slant, it is aimed at outdoor enthusiasts of all types, and the gear that is found within this issue is perfect for hikers, backpackers, adventure travelers, and more.
There are literally dozens of pieces of gear to sift through in this issue, so it is almost impossible for me to list them all here. But, you’ll find reviews of sleeping bags, portable charging stations, camp cookstoves, tents, hiking boots, and much more. I personally contributed 5 or 6 reviews, but have also found numerous other items that I want to add to my gear closet for use on my own adventures, both on and off-road.
Unlike most of the other gear guides we’ve seen in the past few weeks, the OutdoorX4 gear issue actually offers insights into why these items are a good choice, either for yourself or someone on your shopping list. This isn’t a superficial list of products that make great gifts, but is instead a comprehensive look at each and every product that was included. The reviews (other than mine!) are well written and informative, helping you to decide if the gear is indeed what you’re looking for.
You can read the entire Gear Issue online by clicking here. And if you like what you see, you can also subscribe to OutdoorX4 here. Digital subscriptions start at $20 with the print mag edition priced at $25. We promise we’ll make it worth your time.
