100 BEST OUTDOOR PRODUCTS

The 100 Best Outdoor Products for Summer 2017

Welcome to the Outdoor 100, your complete guide to this summer’s best outdoor and adventure gear.

Good gear can make the difference between having the best day of your life and having to finish a climb, a run or a ride early because you’re cold, wet and miserable. Put simply, having the best kit lets us do more of the activities we love.

Our team of gear experts led by Jon Doran, the Reviews Editor of our sister site Outdoors Magic, spent a long time testing product and whittling down the lengthy shortlist to decide on this, the final 100. Being selected for the Outdoor 100 is no mean feat – a lot of great products didn’t make the cut.

So that means you can be sure that the gear featured here, tested and shot beautifully on location in the Peak District, the Malvern Hills and the French Pyrenees by Chris Johnson and John Fisher, really is the best of the best.

Featherweight jackets; high-end hiking boots; innovative mapping apps and even a portable wind turbine – these are the products that will help you get more out of your adventures this summer.
