Update (11/2/2017): In the month since we published this post, the Outside Gear Facebook page has grown 18 percent to over 43,000 followers. We're psyched and appreciate the support! We also received some interesting feedback: readers want a forum to discuss products with our editors and a chance to weigh in on what we should test and review next. So today we launched the Outside Gearheads group, a place to trade tips, discuss the latest products, and to talk with the Outside team. Join now!

Here at Outside, we've been reviewing gear since 1977. We're always on the lookout for the products that make getting outside just a bit easier and a bit more fun. It's an obsession, one that we share with many of our readers. 

That's why we created a spot to revel in this communal gear-lust: the revamped Outside Gear Facebook page. Here you can score the latest killer deals, get inside scoops on what our editors are buying, and be part of an exclusive community where you can get your most pressing gear questions answered. 

At least that's what we have planned at the start. But this page's success depends on you. Tell us what you like—and don't like. Want less news? Need more reviews? Let us know in the comments. We'll be watching carefully and plan to have our four-person gear team weighing in regularly. 

To join the community, like the page and sign up for our twice weekly Gear Fix email. We look forward to having you as part of the gear-nerd club, and thank you, as always for your support.
