Ready to geek out on outdoors gear? Combining climbing, high altitudes, camping and extreme winter weather, mountaineering is probably the most gear-intensive sport there is. And here’s your ultimate guide to the best gear for it.
Jet Boil’s got a new stove you can actually cook real food on. Therm-A-Rest has a new air mattress that inflates in just seconds. A 9-year-old kid caught a 600lb sturgeon. Mt Fuji got WiFi all the way up. VW’s got a new camper van. Here’s what’s new outside this week.
Jetboil's newly designed MiniMo is a lightweight, modular backpacking stove that not only excels at boiling water, but can now simmer and cook real food as well. We've been testing it in the Norwegian wilderness.
The "Flare" Pan is a saucepan designed by University of Oxford engineer Thomas Povey that borrows design aspects from jet and rocket engines to burn hotter and more quickly than a conventional pan would over the same flame. It also looks pretty space age-y, which we can obviously get behind.
The last camping stove I owned was a 15-pound '70s-era Coleman behemoth that took longer to light than actually cook a meal on. So to now use the 1.5-pound Sol cooking system and the Sumo Ti mug is nothing short of magical.
