The Fall Issue has shipped today! Thought some of you would like to see the contents.
This issue includes our most comprehensive outdoor gear test to-date. Graham Jackson, a scientist by trade, tested 12 water filters and purifiers. Over $20,000 in tests were performed from laboratory samples. One major brand failed! Based on our research, this is the most comprehensive and decisive filter/purifier test ever conducted.
The issue also includes a test of available soft luggage, including Ortlieb, Wolfman, PacSafe, Andy Strapz and Dirt Bagz. This test resulted in our first Editors Choice and Value Award going to the same product.
There is also a crazy story about an expedition through Pakistan in a TucTuc and the wrap-up of our F650GS project bike.
