You can try to go running again. But something inside you will tell you that it doesn’t work like that anymore. You can try to give in to the call of known things, but you will feel that there is something new that now claims its place. After these weeks of inner retreat, the deepest part of us has been forged and now wants to be the one to lead the rebirth.

This Outdoor Guide 2020 too has been complex; dictated and conditioned by the rhythms of the lockdown. A long break. Perhaps the longest in our entire life. But now there is a great desire to press on the accelerator. To leave again. To return to a normal life. When taking a next step, however, we must remember to bring with us the good experiences that we have accumulated during this period of time. We have inevitably slowed down, accommodated in this pause, like the brands we usually work with. But we went through this, more united than ever.

Countless times we wasted lot of energies trying to convince another person of our way of thinking. Of our value system, of our beliefs. It is a waste of time. It is one of those activities that are not only useless, but also harmful. First of all, we should become aware of the idea of the others contradicting us. We should cross feedbacks, evaluate pros and cons, meeting ourselves in between.

Today the real and authentic parts of each one of us will no longer accept excuses and references. You can try, but it won’t work. Don’t be surprised at your strange reactions. Don’t be surprised if you want different people around, if you have changed tastes, if you have changed thoughts. The reopening after being so distant from everything had made us wrongly believe that we could retrace the same gestures, the same races, the same habits that we had always taken for granted. But we must deal with an emerging lifeblood, with desires that have silently carried on their revolution. Better, therefore, to open ourselves without prejudice and without compromise.

The spirit is ready. We will help you navigate through this outdoor universe.

What are you going to find in our Outdoor Guide?

With this Outdoor Guide our goal is not to advise you which is the best product on the market, there are too many variables, different shades and details that ultimately make the difference. Our aim is to offer you an overview of all the news that the most important brands are presenting this season, selected in collaboration with the most important market players.

We want to be a reference point for companies, buyers, shops and end consumers, the meeting place for communication in the Outdoor world. There are more than 700 products selected by our editorial staff in 6 months of travel, exhibitions, presentations and tests, a complete overview of Mountaineering, Approach, Hiking, Trekking, SpeedHiking, Trail, Ultra Trail, Skyrace and Climbing shoe models. In addition to clothing, backpacks, tents, sleeping bags and equipment. Within our Guide you will find a great variety of products, each of them carefully selected and reviewed.

However, we decided to take one step further. The most interesting products, the market news, the most attractive curiosities, we asked companies to having them sent to our editorial staff, in order to having them carefully tested on the field thanks to our selected testers.

We don’t usually like to thank or mention brands that collaborate with The Pill for realizing and publishing our magazines. But this time we will make an exception to this rule because the selection of the Guide’s brands is really of the highest level.
