Try our new chat feature below. Sometimes we’re not always live on chat. But if we are there, we would love to assist you.

Prepare. Outfit. Experience.

Those are the three phases of every outdoor adventure, from a winter bike commute to a month long trek through the wilderness. All three are essential to a successful trip and Shoulders of Giants can help you with each one.

First, prepare your body, mind, and itinerary by consulting content written by our team of experts (we call them “Giants”). Check out our Travel section for a review of the world’s best outdoor adventure destinations. Then get fitness tips from our Wellness section and healthy recipes from the Giant Feed Zone.

Into mountain sports? Check out our Board, Climb, and Cycle sections. Our Endurance section covers all things long-distance, while our Survive section will give you the skills you’ll need when things go wrong. Our Fish and Shoot sections cover all things hook and bullet, and our Alpine section covers the outdoor recreation culture we all participate in.

Once you feel sufficiently prepared, you’ll have to outfit yourself with the proper gear. Our Gear Reviews should help guide you there—our writers test a lot of gear, and we only publish reviews of pieces that make grade.

The gear we really love is for sale in our online shop. There, you’ll find everything from backpacks to water purifiers to branded apparel. Each of these items has been vetted by our Giants for its practicality, durability, and value. We frequently offer discounts and coupons to our long-time readers.

Our Hacks section is full on content that will help you make use of the gear you already have. There, you’ll learn things like how to properly fit a ski boot, how to prepare for common gear failures, and more.

Then comes the best part—the actual adventure experience. We probably won’t be with you for that part (unless you invite us, of course), but we can help bring that feeling closer.

When you’re not on the mountain, the river, or the trail, check out our Lessons Learned section. This is where our Giants recount the stories they learned on their own adventures. It’s a great place to glean second-hand knowledge… or to just escape from the office for a few minutes.
