TV50 is our highly curated outdoor product picks for each season, announced in The Voice. To create this list, our team of hardcore—and highly opinionated—gearheads from SNEWS and BACKPACKER pour over hundreds of new product launches, reading the specs and sifting through the marketing promises. We zoom in on photos and watch embargoed video clips. And we debate. We cull the massive list down until we have 50 products. Then we vote to determine the rankings.

If you want to know what will be hot next season, there’s no better place to start than TV50.
