    If your idea of an outdoor adventure is riding your bike through the park, or taking a long leisurely walk then Adidas Outdoor Magazine app is not for you. This free iPad only app appears in your Newsstand and presents you with real adventures in paragliding, mountain climbing, slack lining, kayaking, and loads of other adrenaline rushing activities made for the true extreme outdoors enthusiast.

    Adidas Outdoor Magazine

    Adidas Outdoor Magazine is published four or five times a year. Each issue contains about a half dozen in-depth articles detailing specific adventure activities plus interviews with professionals and other everyday adventure seekers like yourself. Users will find some wonderful photos and thrilling videos with each article. The videos are often worth a look just on their own. Additionally Adidas runs brief articles promoting some of its product line.

    The current October 2014 issue contains stories about a variety of climbing expeditions. You will find a story about a mountain climbing adventure in Oman and an article revealing the sense of happiness a couple felt after scaling a 2800 foot stone wall that climbs straight up out of the Brazilian jungle into the bright sunlight, plus others and a column by experienced mountaineer Reinhold Messner detailing his attempts over the last four decades to climb some of the world's most difficult and dangerous peaks in the middle of the winter while facing rocks covered in snow and ice, 50 mph winds and temperatures that hovered around forty degrees below zero.

    The Adidas Outdoor Magazine app also has a library of back issues. Users get free access to all the issue back to early 2012. In these issues you will find even more exciting adventures detailed in words, pictures, and video.

    So what if you aren't a big time thrill seeker who can't wait to be walking over a single line anchored a thousand feet over a gorge or to be rushing down a raging river with nothing to protect you but a thin shelled kayak and your own skills. I certainly fit into that category but I found the articles and pictures contained in this app to be fascinating. The Adidas Outdoor Magazine app articles are well written and bring an element of the excitement the adventurers feel right to the readers and as I mentioned before the photos and videos are top notch.

    Adidas Outdoor Magazine app is worth a look so you can live vicariously through the adventures of others. One point to note though. While some of the content downloaded quickly, others were very slow and some stopped during the download. I received a server error message a couple of times so it might have been a server issue the day I checked out the app.
