Expertise: Adventure sport

Rachael Schultz is an outdoor gear writer who knows what it's like to be a beginner in the adventure world: She grew up in and around East Coast cities and, after moving near Aspen, Colorado in 2017 on a whim, she dove head-first into learning every adventure sport possible as an adult. You can now find her skiing and skinning in the winters and in the summers, happily rafting, mountain biking, road-tripping, and hiking with her dog, Crocodile.


  • Rachael has been a lifestyle and outdoor writer for 10+ years.
  • She was previously the Health, Fitness, and Outdoors Editor at Insider Reviews.


Rachael has worked on staff at Men's Health, Shape, and Insider Reviews. She has covered outdoor gear for Men's Journal, Travel + Leisure, Sports Illustrated, TripSavvy, Gear Patrol, and more. Rachael also tests outdoor equipment from her home base in the Rocky Mountains while adventuring.


Rachael has her BFA in Creative Non-Fiction from Savannah College of Art and Design.
