A week after we uncovered the Triton Gills Indiegogo scam, the company came clean and refunded nearly $900,000 to its backers. The company’s initial campaign made all but impossible claims of a mouth-size underwater breathing apparatus that, had it been legitimate, would have revolutionized underwater sports and professions.
When Airstream announced a new trailer that campers could pull behind small SUVs, we jumped on the story. At just over 2,500 lbs., the Basecamp is svelte enough to be towed by the crossovers and small SUVs many adventurers now drive.
Kaiha Bertollini made waves in the outdoors world with claims of a new Appalachian Trail thru-hike record. Check that, every new thru-hike record. Much doubt has since been cast on her alleged self-supported achievement, but we spoke with Bertollini to hear her side of the unprecedented (and unlikely) trek.
From “indestructible” socks to breakthrough, ice-gripping rubber soles, we selected the best of the best from January’s Outdoor Retailer winter market.

Readers loved this look behind the haft at a modern-day metal worker. We learned how Aaron Cergol makes art through the age-old craft of blacksmithing.
Paddle boards with pedals, asymmetrical shoes, and an eco-friendly jacket that might actually be a game-changer: The OR summer market gave us (and you) a lot to look forward to in gear for next year.
We were in attendance at the Biltmore Estates in Asheville, N.C., for Overland Expo East. There, we got a look at some of the coolest and most rugged adventure-mobiles on the planet. It was also a truck-top, tent-lover’s dream!
We got wind of a video series titled “The Innovation Project” that profiled a number of independent outdoor retail stores. We decided to showcase some of the featured shops and a few of our own personal favorites from around the country.
This photo essay from one of our editors sheds light on one of the most brutal winter endurance events in the world. This year marked the 12th installment of the 135-mile bike/run/ski race across northern Minnesota.
