In 1978, a letter in Outside’s first issue stated that the magazine was "dedicated to covering the people, activities, politics, art, and literature of the outdoors." Today, that editorial goal remains the same—if anything, it’s expanded as we continue to redefine what it means to be an outdoor recreationist. With in-depth narrative storytelling, profiles, video, and authoritative service, we explore the intersection between our lives and the natural world. Our writers bring their unique expertise, irreverence, and humor to the biggest stories, all told through an outdoor lens in print and on the web. We hope you find inspiration here, then take that wonder outside.
