Welcome to the Outdoor 100, your complete guide to this season’s latest and greatest bits of kit.
When it comes to winter, you want gear that can keep you outdoors when the weather seems to be trying its best to trap you inside; you need kit that can go that extra mile and keep you warm, dry, or stable over challenging terrain.
But finding the stuff that really works can be a difficult task, particularly when there are so many brands and new product releases out there to choose from.
And that’s why we created the Outdoor 100.
Our team of gear experts, led by Will Renwick, have spent the past year searching for the latest innovations in technology, fabrics and design and have been putting countless products to the test to find the 100 items that’ll help you grab winter by the horns.
Finalising the list wasn’t easy. In fact, there were plenty of great items that didn’t make the cut. So, with that in mind, we can guarantee you that the gear we’ve featured, all shot beautifully in the Brecon Beacons and þórsmörk in Iceland by Chris Johnson and John Fisher, really are the season’s finest.
