GEAR:30

By BLISTER

GEAR:30 is the blister podcast where we dive deep into the details of the most interesting and innovative outdoors gear.We talk with some of our own editors and reviewers about the gear they’ve been testing and what they think of it, and we also talk to product designers, engineers, and athletes about the latest stuff they’ve been working on.Finally, we are going to be talking to some of the owners of our blister recommended shops around the world, to have them weigh in on gear trends and the equipment they’ve been most impressed with in terms of durability, value, or performance in places like Alaska, Colorado, Europe, New Zealand, and more. If you love outdoors gear, you're going to love this podcast. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
