    2-0 out of 5 stars Image vs. Content
    I'm not sure who's at the helm of this operation but I'd be willing to bet they don't get Outside too often. Not to be too cynical about it, but I just don't find this mag to be as USEFUL as it was before. If you like LOTS of articles on who the coolest extreme sports stars are, how they got their abs, and what gear they're wearing, subscribe NOW. The magazine looks amazing, the photography is top notch and they still manage to come up with a thorny article on the environment periodically. But for my money, it just feels like the editorial staff has been plucked from New York image mags that do one thing really well - SELL. I read National Geographic Adventure, and unlike Outside, I USE IT for information because it has CONTENT.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Informative Mag for the Adventurous
    I've been a subscriber to Outside magazine for several years, and it seems to go through its ups and downs in terms of the strength of its editorial content, especially regarding the political side of environmentalism. It is still easily the most informative magazine out there for lovers of the outdoors, but just note that the focus is on active, not armchair, appreciation of nature. Beyond the occasionally great and always heavily knowledgeable product reviews, the key strength of this magazine is the well-written and strongly researched articles on outdoor issues of concern, not just in America but around the world. An outstanding recent example, among many, concerns the economics of environmentalism in the conservative Western U.S. This is the type of strong conservationist reporting that can usually only be found otherwise in books. Other more whimsical articles are just fun to read for those with off-kilter interests, such as recent pieces on urban rock climbing or sauna fanatics in Finland.

    Many other articles could be classified more as travel/tourism than adventure, but the accompanying photography is always top-notch, and the editors have a knack for finding out-of-the-way hidden treasures around the world that are ripe for discovery by the adventurous. (But on the other hand, the magazine could be faulted for contributing to the recent trend of hyping previously unknown outdoor paradises that have since become crowded, such as Molly Sods Wilderness in West Virginia.)Personally, I would like to see a little less focus on expensive vacations that extreme sports fanatics can take in hard-to-reach nations, and more on what folks with more realistic means (and amounts of free time) can do in humble parks and forests near home. But despite its habit of losing its focus at times, I will continue to be a fan of Outside for years to come, and might just travel to some of those hyped exotic adventure locations.

    4-0 out of 5 stars It serves its purpose!
    For the guy that loves the outdoors and all the wonders that it provides, "Outside" is the magazine for him.Filled with straightforward info on travel, workout and health tips, and those little gadgets that make outdoor activities easier to tackle, this publication hits the nail on the head.

    I would've never discovered it if it hadn't been offered as a one of the perks for renewing my subscription with a magazine readers' service, and for that, I am grateful. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    If you prefer a vacation where you unzip a tent flap to reveal a glorious sunrise rather than waking to a stuffy hotel room, Backpacker is the publication for you. Stuffed as full as a 50-pound rucksack, Backpacker regularly includes helpful tips on everything from lightening your load to finding the tastiest dehydrated foods. Along with practical advice, equipment reviews, and beautiful color photos, Backpacker offers monthly tips on where to hike, with longer features on newly opened or highlighted areas, plus several shorter hike recommendations, complete with directions, trail maps, and information on altitude, difficulty, special sights, crowd levels, and contact numbers. --Ben Reese ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Where Else will you get in Depth Analysis of Duct Tape?
    I'm not much of a magazine guy, but I must confess I am thoroughly addicted to this one.It is smart, fun, helpful, inspiring and well written.Content usually includes: a backcountry skill, a lightweight tip, a couple underrated destinations, caring for some body part that is troublesome when backpacking, backcountry food ideas, as well as a number of other brief tips, debates (e.g. deodorant, worth the weight?) trail suggestions and commentaries.There are also always extensive gear reviews (and an annual dedicated issue) that I could do without, but I'm sure are helpful to gear addicts.Oh, and the photography is fantastic.On the whole this is a great little publication that really accentuates the backpacking experience and allows you to live it vicariously when you are not able to get to the mountains.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I DIDN'T THINK THEY MADE 'EM LIKE THIS ANYMORE...
    Backpacker is a rare thing in the periodical market: a magazine that never has a weak issue. I have subscribed to Backpacker for a year now. It has only gotten better in that time--truly going from strength to strength.

    If you love the outdoors, this is the magazine for you. Your level of experience at things like hiking, camping, rock-climbing, snowshoeing, canoeing, kayaking, and yes--backpacking, is not an issue. This magazine consistently has something for people of all levels.

    My debt to these pages is great indeed: I have learned some skills and honed others. I have discovered (and visited) some places I did not know existed. It was in Backpacker that I was tipped off about the Beans at the Roosevelt Lodge (this alone being worth the price of subscription).

    I love: the Reader's Choice Awards, the Gear Guide Issue, the work-out plan from last year's spring hiking issue, and the stories/feautures. I didn't think they made magazines like this anymore. I was wrong.

    Backpacker is an excellent publication. I give it my highest recommendation. Get a copy today.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Flawless Publication for Lovers of the Great Outdoors
    Backpacker is an outstanding magazine for those who love to hike and also for those who enjoy paging through a magazine containing lots of enticing photographs of nature scenes. This magazine is, first and foremost, a publication for lovers of the outdoors and the sport of backpacking. But the pictures of mountains, lakes, streams, wildlife, etc., are enticing to anyone. They can quickly convert the non- outdoorsman type into a nature lover.

    Besides the great pictures, Backpacker is also excellent for its product testing and for its advice and educational material. Backpacks, mountain bikes, tents, and so forth might seem like simple products, but you would be surprised at how many different varieties and options are available for this type of merchandise. Backpacker describes different items available for sale, complete with web site address and phone# so you can make a purchase, and it often conducts tests to see how the different products stack up. It also offers educational material on the sport of backpacking and general advice on such topics as food, exercise, proper nutrition, first aid, etc.

    Backpacker averages between 90 and 120 pages in total length and it's published 9 times per year (three of the issues combine two months into one). It's one of the few special interest magazines I have read that has something to offer most anyone. Even if you don't like hiking, there is still a good chance you will enjoy thumbing through the pages of Backpacker, if nothing else, just to enjoy the great photography.

    Overall, this is an outstanding outdoor publication. The articles, the personal stories, the advice, the photos, and the educational material all add up to a perfect magazine for anyone who loves to partake in outdoor activity or who just enjoys looking at the stunning photos. 5+ stars to Backpacker! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine
    I love this magazine not only for the Camper and RV articles but the great assortment of information on destinations, first aid, buyer's guides etc.And the photography is first rate.

    2-0 out of 5 stars 'Camping Life' Might Better be called 'Camper Life'
    Although 'Camping Life' does contain a nice article or two each issue, the thrust of the magazine seems more to be a showcase of nice big campers/RV's rather than the experience of camping and related camping activities. I subscribed sight unseen from the boy next door who was selling subscriptions for school. I will definitely let this subscription lapse. There's just not enough love of camping and the outdoors in the magazine. However, if your camping interests run more to great big RV's and all the related gear, you might find some value here that I did not.

    3-0 out of 5 stars O.k. , but just O.k.!
    We recently purchased a popup trailer and subscribed to PopUp Times magazine.I was looking for another magazine also that was devoted to camping and family.Came across Camping Life.I bought an issue to see how we liked it before subscribing.I'm glad I did!While the magazine is O.k., it's not exactly what I was looking for in a family oriented camping magazine.Seems to me the articles were geared toward upper average income families that just "have to have" the name brand most popular at the time.I felt like I was reading a magazine devoted to "keeping up with the Jones'"!Also, I was a little dissappointed that the magazine only comes out every other month.With as much ads in this magazine, it does not take long to read it. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Well...
    You know, somehow I ended up with a free subscription to this magazine, and although I've been getting it for months it hasn't made much of an impression.

    It's more balanced between gear and technique than say Popular Photography.However, I'm sitting here trying to conjure up an interesting article from memory, and I'm getting nothing.

    Outdoor photography is difficult from an artistic standpoint, but from a technique standpoint there's just not all that much to know.Put your camera on a tripod when you can.Worry about Lens flare.Autofocus is good for rapidly moving animals.Wait for the light.Experiment with fill flash until you find a level that you like.Ho hum.You're not going to find any tips in this magazine on how to bring out the highlights of a B&W photo with farmer's reducer, or anything like that.It's all on the blur-the-waterfall-with-a-slow-shutterspeed kind of level.

    Anyways, a beginner might like it for a year or two, so I've given it 3 stars.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very unbalanced coverage!
    If you want a generalized photography magazine that covers protraiture, product, glamour, or wedding/events photo techniques...read the cover before you buy this magazine. If you want a fine instructional magazine devoted to outdoor and travel photography, there may not be a better one in print. Filled with beautiful photos that, more often than not, have details about equipment/settings used to make them and where they were taken. I've been a subscriber for years and will continue.

    2-0 out of 5 stars A How-To Magazine for Creating Cliches
    The typical photo magazine aimed at amateurs is 90% about equipment and 10% about art. And that's a very sucessful formula, as most amateur "photographers" are really equipment junkies and not artists.

    Outdoor Photographer is more like 50:50 gear and technique. There's still a lot of equipment writing- which tripod, which lens and so forth- but a significant amount of editorial space is devoted to technique as well. Unfortunately most of it is about creating the same stale and hackneyed nature photos that fill the pages of this and other magazines: Heavily filtered, over saturated color images of senic vistas that make for nice posters but say very little about the subject.

    In some sense the notion of there being an "outdoor" genre of photography is rather silly; can you imagine a magazine called "Indoor Photography"? Good photographers are good photographers, and can see images wherever they are- and with whatever equipment they use. For every Ansel Adams who obsesses over technique there's a Cartier-Bresson, who couldn't be troubled to get his exposures quite right, and truth be told, Cartier-Bresson was the better of the two when it came to art. ...

    I loved it as a child, my daughter loves it.Your child will to!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Helped Foster My Love and Respect for Animals

    Living in the country as I did, I saw plenty wild animals in my backyard (squirrels, raccoons, possums..), but armed with Ranger Rick, I was able to appreciate and see them up close with out being bit, scratched, mauled, or hauled off to the emergency room for rabies shots!

    Besides the wonderful animal features, there were projects, games, and activities to keep me and my brother busy.The concepts put forth in each issue emphasized recycling, kindness to animals, and conservation -- values and beliefs I carry with me almost 30 years after the fact.

    So whether you live on a farm, the suburbs, or the city, Ranger Rick would be a wonderful gift for your child.It will help foster a life long love and respect for animals, as well as reinforce key values (conservation, recycling, etc.).A few things have changed over the past 30 years, but Ranger Rick is still consistantly a good magazine.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Ranger Rots!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Photographs with the added bonus of good writing
    I received National Geographic as a gift because I was getting too old for Ranger Rick. (Quite the jump, I must add).I read my first issue and immediately wanted more.

    The pictures, as many have said, are always stunning, and the writing is spectacular.Obviously, such a world-renowned magazine must be spectacular.

    My only complaint is that it takes so long to read that, with my busy schedule, I don't ever have time to read anything else.They tend to pile up, but I read them all eventually- I can't bear the thought of just putting an unread issue straight into the rack with the read ones.It really is fantastic and makes a great Bar or Bat Mitzvah gift.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A fantastic publication despite its liberal slant
    Now now!Before you get mad at me for my "liberal slant" comment in the title of this review, let me remind you that I also said it's "a fantastic publication.":-) No matter what your political stance on hot button issues such as global warming and oil, you have to admit that National Geographic takes a liberal stance.Is that good or bad?Entirely up to you to decide.But to their credit, they do a VERY fair job, within the articles, of explaining and examining ALL aspects and points of view.

    I subscribed because like most of us, I've always been a fan of their photographs, but as they began to arrive in the mail I found myself poring over each and every page, reading every issue from cover to cover.I've learned so many wonderful things about cultures and people I will never get a chance to see in real life, and I've educated myself on issues that otherwise would remain a mystery.

    One of the most enjoyable aspects of having a subscription is the inserts that come in almost every issue.My all time favorite thus far has been a composite map of the entire world at night, showing natural gas vents, wild fires, and city lights across the globe.Fascinating!

    For the almost embarrassingly low price of $49.00 a year I am more educated, informed, and inspired then I was before I subscribed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It does not get better
    This is the best ever magazine in all fields....though they are getting mean nowadays and reducing the number of pages per issue!!! It is really a great reading from cover to cover...everybody must get it!!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This has got to be one of my favorite magazines
    I love this magazine. I'm a teenage rider and I find (most of) the articles very informative and helpful. I really like Cindy Hale's Life With Horses colum and I always enjoy Breed Profiles. The one thing I don't appreciate is a woman named Marcia King writes articles in some of the issues that are too animal-rights activist for me. Definitely subscribe!

    3-0 out of 5 stars NOT REALLY WORTH THE MONEY
    Horse Illustrated is a nice, slick, colorful, and simplistic magazine appropriate for the young horse lover who isn't ready for a greater depth of information about the equine world.This is not the publication for anyone who is seriously interested in becoming informed about horse health, care, products, training, or breed information. For the more mature equestrian, it is not worth the money.A better choice is Horse Journal or Equus.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for horse owners and non-horse owners alike
    This magazine is absolutely wonderful!I'm a thirten year old amateur rider, and I find these articles very interesting and informative without loading you down with complex terms.I don't use a lot of the articles yet, like training articles, but the information I gain is very valuable.Here's a layout:

    Feature Articles:There are always seven to ten feature articles, which are long, informative articles on training, tips on looking for a barn, using good fencing, or maybe just a sport that it informs you about.


    Equipage:This column, by Moira C. Harris, talks about observations of the equine world or advice she's acquired over the years.

    Life with Horses:This is a humorous column by Cindy Hale that looks at the funny side of all things equine.

    Back in Z Saddle:By Soraya O' Sullivan, this column shows the equine life of Soraya, going day by day.

    Vet Files:The latest medical news

    Western Roundup:News for the Western rider

    English Arena:News for the English rider

    This Month On:Stuff on www.horseillustrated.com


    Mail Pouch:Readers write to Horse Illustrated

    Horseman's World:The latest news

    Illustrated Shopper, Ad Index, Breeder Directory, Classified Advertising, Gallery, Gallery Advertising:Stuff for you to look at

    Breed Profile:Each month features a breed and its history, plus a tear-out poster.

    There's even more, too.This is a great magazine.The only thing I don't like about it is all the advertisements, but the great articles make it ok.Oh yeah, and the photographs are great too.Enjoy this magazine!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine on Many Fronts!
    I am not a magazine reader at all. Adventure is the only magazine I have a subscription to (going on my 3rd year). It has great photography, travel journals, spotlights on different place to visit (i.e. South Africa). It also is fantastic if you are an avid outdoorsman/woman. The cover a lot camping, rafting, kayaking, etc. Well written, informative, great pictures. Always finding new places to write about. Good read every month - and CHEAP!

    5-0 out of 5 stars National Geographic Adventure
    I don't know what the person was thinking who reviewed this magazine (Jan 2004) and said he had cancelled his subscription of 15 years.This magazine only first began publication a few years ago.I have every issue and have loved and read every one.Adventure is the best of the National Geographic publications and is for those who are young or at least young at heart.Some of the articles are a bit sassy -- but just enough to make them fun!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not what it used to be.
    I have just cancelled my subscription to National Geographic Magazine after 15 years of membership.Regrettably the magazine has lost its former lustre and has become too americanized and too focussed upon 911 and the two wars in the middle east.I need a magazine that is truely worldly in scope and covers nature and cultural diversity.My search led me to three candidates: Geo Magazine - good but not available in english; Geographical - british, good but a little shallow; and finally I settled upon CNN Traveller - an excellent magazine to which I am now subscribed and is all and more than what National Geographic used to be.I just wish more publishers would give National Geographic some competition.

    3-0 out of 5 stars For parrot newbs and kids
    Not for breeders, or for people whose birds have serious health or behavioral problems. Just a nice fluffy mag for people new to birds.

    This magazine isn't only about baby birds. Sure a lot of the content is geared toward owners of young birds. But face it, that's how most people get a bird. They buy a young one. But be assured, there are plenty of articles on older/adopted birds.

    However I do agree that if you are an adult who has owned a bird for a year or even less, or if you have any previous bird-smarts, you will quickly outgrow this magazine. It doesn't help that the articles are recycled rather frequently. I worked in a pet store for over two years, and when things got slow, I would read this mag as it was sold at the checkout. (Meaning I have pretty much read every issue for at least two years)

    The magazine is highly devoted to parrot owners. I'd say at least 80% of the content is on parrots in any given issue.

    On the bright side, it's a good, quick read for kids or adults with no bird experience, and the pictures are nice.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I look forward to this magazine every month.....
    We've had a subscription to BIRD TALK magazine for two years, and I just renewed for a third.BT is the magazine to read if you want to go beyond books. Articles in BT are written by various bird lovers, many of whom, like Mattie Sue Athan, have also written book or two.Many of the BT authors are avian veterinarians and many like Athan breed and raise and/or rehabilitate parrots or are simply extremely knowledgeable about companion birds. I find the monthly collection of articles very diverse-important to me as I have 18 companion birds, of 8 different kinds.

    BT carries plenty of information about excellent bird resources- suppliers, breeders, avian vets, etc. as well as toy makers and food suppliers). I found an advertisement for a small mom and pop organization in California that manufactures play gyms and stands using old grape vines from the vineyards.These vines are harvested as the vineyards are replenished with new plants. Grape vine play gyms are wonderful fun for the birds-exercising bars as well as chewing toys-and great for giving the old beak a workout on something other than your ear or hand.

    Every month a different bird is featured on the cover, and in the lead article and centerfold. I saved the Senegal centerfold to hang in my office and remind me of my own little `Bertie' the Senegal when I am at work. I hand my copies of BT to my granddaughters after I have read them cover to cover and they have used the centerfolds to decorate their room. BT recently carried an article on feather-plucking and we all read it as one of the Cockatiels had developed this bad habit.Following the advice in the article, we had the vet check Quincy out and when she pronounced him disease free, we began to examine factors in his environment.We were able to get to the root of the problem and now Quincy is his old self.Thanks BIRD TALK, keep up the great work.

    Periodically, the book includes a feature article on an endangered species, environmentally sensitive bird habitat and/or and Ecotour. Bird companions are often also avian conservationists.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Lots of advertisements! Little information?
    If you are looking for a magazine and have low expectations. A magazine with a few cute photos, with very basic (VERY) information then you may want to read a copy of this as well as a few others produced by this same publisher.

    I cannot stress any more that the information contained within these pages are BASIC! If you know that parrots have hard beaks then I can honestly say that you will probably read this magazine in 5 min flat.

    DO NOT take the blind advice through advertisements on what to feed your bird. Find someone knowledgably in the subject. It will make the difference between your bird living 40% of its life span and 100%. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Published by New York's treasured American Museum of Natural History, Natural History gives a monthly peek into current goings-on in the broad realm of natural history and science. Dinosaur buffs, world travelers, animal lovers, stargazers, birders, and history fanatics alike will find articles and photographs to pique their interests. Less weighty than its chief peer, National Geographic, Natural History takes the armchair traveler into the world of bugs, archeological excavations, and the rest of the universe. Without ever reading like a specialized journal, the magazine creates an intelligent and in-depth discussion of each topic, and articles are illustrated with photographs, drawings, charts, and maps. Perhaps because National Geographic covers so much cultural and physical ground, Natural History features more focused articles on scientific discovery. Still, it's a glimpse into a vast world, and a good substitute for a monthly visit to the Museum of Natural History. --Gilia Angell ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finest Popular Magazine on Natural History
    "Natural History" is the official popular journal published by the American Museum of Natural History, the oldest - and largest - museum of natural history in the Western Hemisphere and without question, one of the world's greatest museums. In its pages it has featured brilliant essays by the likes of Roy Chapman Andrews, Margaret Mead, and Stephen Jay Gould, to name but a few of the many eminent scientists - both museum staff and outsiders - who have contributed superb articles on natural history to this magazine. It has retained an emphasis on scientific discovery, publishing articles pertaining to ecology and other aspects of evolutionary biology (including paleobiology), geology, astrophysics, archaeology and anthropology. Recent issues have included brief articles on biomechanics of various living organisms, those pertaining to recent and current exhibitions such as the Petra exhibition on display at the museum from the Fall of 2003 to early Summer 2004, and current ecological and anthropological research. Current museum scientists, most notably Neil deGrasse Tyson, the director of the Hayden Planetarium, often report in these pages on their ongoing research as well as on issues of a more general nature that might interest a scientifically-literate public. And to its credit, it has not shied away from controversy, publishing for example, an issue on so-called "Intelligent Design", which is seen by its adherents as a competing scientific alternative to evolution via Natural Selection, but lacks any scientific credibility from professional scientists, science educators and like-minded members of the general public.

    An earlier reviewer critized the journal for not using the metric system.Personally, I do not find this to be a problem with a journal which is primarly qualitative and not quantitative. ... Read more
