Independent. Unfiltered. Engaged
three issues of The Voice fanned out on a wooden table

The Voice is an award-winning outdoor trade magazine.

The Voice drops in the first week of June and the second week of January (to coincide with the traditional Outdoor Retailer shows) so you can arm yourself with everything you need to hit the season running: big ideas and conversation starters, expert product knowledge, and a deep understanding of the issues facing our industry.

In every issue:

  • BUSINESS: Statistics, shop talk, news briefs, finding your next customer, and the latest trends in retail
  • CULTURE: Real talk about identity, fresh faces in the industry, and homage to sales reps and others
  • GEAR: Breakthroughs, trends across all categories, and our top 50 gear picks
  • FEATURES: In-depth coverage of important topics, such as REI's influence and copycat gear makers

While the usual cost is $12.99 for a single issue or $30 for an annual subscription of three issues, for Spring/Summer 2020 we’re opening up a free one-time subscription to make sure everyone who wants a copy gets a copy. All we’re asking is that you cover the cost of postage: just $2 for a single issue and less if you choose to get more copies for your staff. The digital version will also be free, and we ask only that you register to receive it
