Since the dawn of the pandemic, more and more people have been getting outdoors. And that's awesome, but also leaves the industry wondering: will they stay outdoors once we get this damn thing under control?

Walking the floor at Outdoor Retailer this past week, we got a real sense that brands are doing what they can to make it easier to have epic adventures under open skies. And honestly, that's awesome too, because a concurrent sea change is simply making the outdoors more accessible for all.

With features that make forays into the backcountry smoother, safer, more comfortable and more fun, the following five products nicely represent the trend.

Hustle Bike Labs REMtech Pedals

Crested Butte, Colorado-based mountain biker Craig Payne was driven to design a quicker-releasing clipless pedal after a brush with death in 2015. His solution? Neodymium magnets, which allow your feet to find their natural position while staying connected with the pedal — and detach as soon as your foot angles out of the magnetic plane (intentionally or unintentionally). The system works with standard two-bolt SPD shoes and will be available for $219 next spring.

We were stoked to see one of the most wide-ranging outdoor brands expand into tents this past spring. Testing the Telos, we loved the Tension Ridge that increases head and shoulder space and Hangout Mode, which converts the rainfly into a semi-open shelter. Now Sea to Summit has introduced an upgraded, three-plus season version with a fabric inner tent to keep out the cold and a higher-spec waterproof floor for wet conditions.
