I only read magazines when I travel. So, on the way to Memphis I picked up a copy of Outside Magazine.

I must tell you that this month's cover was the sole reason for buying it. Lindsey Vonn is on the cover and it's a fantastic photo of her (in a very shear outfit). Wow, is all I gotta say.

But, as I've noticed the few times I've bought the magazine, it seems that every destination article is nothing more than an advertisement for a particular place. It has a cheesy element to it and is a turn off for me.

The story articles, on the other hand, are well done and make up for the rest of the magazine.

I subscribed to it for a year and felt like it was very much targeted at men.  I am now in some database somewhere as either a lesbian or a man  :laugh:

Now I just receive their emails, and do find some of their articles to be worth reading, especially the coverage of scandals like Lance Armstrong and Greg Mortenson.

Whaaah?  You think that cover story/photo was targeted for an audience mostly of men?  The hell you say. :p :D

I'll pick up a copy if one is laying around in a doctor's office, but otherwise don't pay it much attention.  IMO it's not that different than backpacker, mostly.  Not a lot more than a gear-ad and destination-ad outlet that occasionally (but rarely) goes beneath the surface on much.

But I haven't read it in years, so that's based mostly on fuzzy years-old memories.  Maybe there's a great deal more in there than I give it credit for, who knows.

I used to like it when it first came out.  However, I feel it has turned into a glitzy elitist publication which has little or no relevancy to me or the average outdoor enthusiast.  I mean just look at their product reviews.  Seems like I'd have to take out a second mortgage to afford anything they recommend.  I see some of the same kind of stuff creeping into Backpaker Magazine.   I mean, do they really think most of us need the lastest, high tech, most expensive gear out there or that we can actually afford it?  The Outside cover did catch my attention though.  Got to admit that.  Perhaps they are now trying to compete with Sports Illustrated.

Yup.

That was an interesting article about L.V. I stopped subscribing to Outside and Bzckpacker years ago because of the glitz and ads for things I would not spend that kind of money for. I did find Campmor in BP.

+1.  Glitzy and shallow...  It's why I don't spend money on Outside.  And as a traveler, I don't read Conde Nest or Nat Geo Traveler either, for much the same reasons.

Forums are much better sources of info. when it comes to backpacking / traveling.  But each to his or her own, of course.

I subscribe and it's one of the few magazines that I actually really read.  So many magazines articles today are obviously written by people sitting in front of a computer "researching" other magazine articles but I don't get that feeling with Outside. I also read National Geographic.  Backpacker, on the other hand, is a subscription that people keep giving me for some occassion or another, but I've probably only read 10% of the contents at best.

When I see covers like that on an outdoor type of rag, I have to figure the content also has as little to do with my outdoor activities as the picture.

An outdoor mag with someone ice climbing, Alpining, actually backpacking on a trail, or something similar.... THAT makes me pick it up to see what is inside.

The lovely blonde on the cover of this magazine is easy on the eyes, but I would not want that thing laying around where my daughter could see it.

Um. Do you know who Lindsey Vonn is? It'd be hard to imagine a better role model for any female athelete.

A great role model who is on magazine covers half-nude in provocative poses?  I'd much rather my daughter, if I had one, had role models who celebrated their athleticism more than their sexuality.

Not that there's anything wrong with sex.  I'm just sick of "wildly sexy" being the highest accolade for a female.

Her atheletism is what she is celebrated for. Being a world champion on many fronts is a result of training, determination and beating her peers. How she choses to present herself to the world doesn't take away any of that.

It's no different than a lightly clad champion male diver being presented on the cover of a magazine that prints an article that celebrates his achievements. That atheletic physique is part of what makes them a champion.

Edit to add. The outfit she's wearing is really a modest bikini. (By today's examples.) You probably can't tell by the on-line photo, but the top and bottom of the outfit is connected by a light lace that you can see at her cleavege.

+1  Outside has some very good writers as well. (ScottH Mentioned this.)  Outside is a damn good magazine with a variety of interesting articles.  

A magazine does not have to intererest every reader with every article to be good value.  I think this falls under HYOH kinda philosophy.

One thing to be aware of is Outside is not a BPing magazine but an adventure lifestyle magazine. They offer a variety of articles and features of bios, gear, travel, and lifestyle which reflect their outside adventure emphasis. And they do it well.

The complaint that it is glitzy is silly ... stupid really.  Of course a magazine is going to be eye catching and attractive.  Duh!!!  The ads pay for the magazine so there is generally going to always be auto ads and destination resort ads in mags like this.  Gear companies are going to feature cutting edge, new, high end, redesigned, etc products, so it's unlikely you are going to see full page ads for a tent peg or lip balm.  Also, a magazine is not going to be comprehensive about much of anything at all for several reasons, but simply the cost of paper is one of the main reasons.

The nature of a magazine today prohibits it being a resource of information.  Instead it is just a springboard to inspire, to point in the right direction, to make aware, etc.  Outside does this very well.  The writing in Outside is really quite good and as dd mentioned mentioned in his original post, the story articles kinda makeup for any lack elsewhere in the magazine.

I don't subscribe but read it at the public library.

Just clicked the online Outside magazine. Seems like a solid rag. It seems to display things that are outside. Maybe the paper version is all evil and just shows naked pictures of women and articles in glamping.

For backpacking gear reviews?  Yeah, probably.  Outside isn't a "how to" magazine though.  I guess the way to describe it is "adventure writing".  It was Outside who sent Krakauer on the Everest climb in '96, covered the attempt to run the Tsangpo in 2004, told the story about Chris McCandless.  I also remember a really good article about Kevin Pearce (snowboarder) a few years ago.

I'll peruse and occasionally buy an issue; however, I no longer subscribe to the magazine.  The magazine has really changed since it moved to Santa Fe in the '90s.  I preffered it when it was based in Chicago; it's much more of a commercial magazine these days and has lost much of what I use to enjoy.

Outside still has some good articles/profiles, interviews, though; and I enjoyed the recent profile of Jim Harrison (though it was much too short) and the tsunami piece by Bruct Barcott.

Does anyone remember when it was called Mariah...???  I do.  Here's an old article on Outside.

My son sells magazine subscriptions to support his school.  I pretty much HAVE to subscribe to some magazine(s).  :)  This year, I subscribed to Outside.  There have been several articles that I really enjoyed - the one on obstacle racing, the one on Caballo Blanco, the one on the Free Burma Rangers ... several good articles.

Sure, the magazine is glitzy.  Most magazines are.

Yes, but with her immense work ethic, as described in the Outside article, odds are huge she'll be back.

It's a crazy tough sport: I follow the FIS tv coverage and there's hardly a speed event skier that isn't mentioned within the context of coming back from injury and missing seasons and Olympics and Worlds...
