The Adventure Podcast Episode 57: Our Favorite Small Outdoor Brands

It’s Wednesday, which means its also time for another episode of The Adventure Podcast. This week, my co-host Dave Adlard and I take a look at some of our favorite smaller outdoor gear brands, sharing the companies that might be off the radar a bit but are still doing good things. Companies like BioLite and Black Yak, that are making great gear but aren’t as well known as the behemoths of the industry, which we all know and love.

Before revealing that list however, we also take a look at some of the hot news stories from the world of outdoor adventure and exploration. We discuss whether or not we’ll see a thousand successful summits on Everest this year, an impressive free solo in Patagonia, and the return of a 4×4 off-road legend. Finally, we wrap things up with our weekly gear picks, with Dave sharing his thoughts on the ThermaCell mosquito repellant products while I offer up a review on the Old Town Topwater PDL fishing kayak.

As usual, you’ll find this episode in the embedded audio player found below or you can subscribe to the show through Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Sticher, and Spotify.

  2. Hey

    As mentioned on twitter the audio for both of you’ll was perfect this time around. Whatever you’ll are doing on that front seems to be working !

    Would it be possible to list out all the small brand companies mentioned and the other you’ll know of but did not mention in a single list. This make things handy for shoppers. Alongside the list if possible you’ll could list their specialization i.e. jackets, lighting etc

    My two bits !

    Thanks for the great podcast !!
