Outdoorsy folks today are treated to a huge array of outdoor blogs, websites and magazines – everything from trip reports to tips, gear reviews and interviews with inspiring adventurers. And since my original post in this series has been so popular, I thought I may as well feature more of my favourite outdoor blogs. In no particular order, here are some more recommendations. Happy reading!
5 (More) Outdoor Blogs Worth Following
Sierra Trading Post is a hugely popular outdoor website that provides deals on gear, shoes, clothing and more. Their blog has super quality content, and an impressive following. I love their how-to articles and their conversation starters around issues relating to the outdoors (they host regular Twitter chats – look for #STPLive). Follow them @SierraTP and on Facebook.
Highline Magazine is the mountain culture magazine for the Canadian Rockies, and they do a darn good job of bringing you stories that matter. Their material is upbeat and humorous, yet totally sincere and well-researched. I’m a big fan of the diversity of their departments and the fact that they spice up their regular mountain-themed content with things like recipes and photo tips. Stay tuned to the latest @HighlineMag and on Facebook.
Their own tagline provides a good summary: “News, commentary, and insights on adventures, and adventurers, from around the globe.” I have always appreciated the quality and variety of posts I find on The Adventure Blog. Curator Kraig Becker has an eye for what’s interesting, and does a great job keeping this website updated on a consistent basis. If you’re looking to stay updated on some of the best adventure stories and content on the web, here’s your hub. Follow along at @KungFuJedi.
For ladies (and gents!) looking for some serious inspiration, Women’s Adventure Magazine is calling your name. Their female-specific content is very refreshing in the realm of outdoor publications, which I find are generally quite male-dominated. The magazine allows women to be inspired by stories about other women and to tap into interests that ultimately need to be catered to the female experience. Check them out @womensadventure, on Facebook and Pinterest.
This is another (hugely popular) discount outdoor gear website that hosts an awesome blog. Their content is top-notch, and varies from gear reviews to full length feature articles. The layout of the website is engaging and dynamic – definitely one of the best I’ve seen. I’m particularly a big fan of the presentation of their feature articles – as close as you can come to a print magazine online without it simply being a digital flip-through. Check out this article to see what I mean. Follow @The Clymb and Facebook.
