Not sure if anyone else has seen this, but prepping, survival, etc. now has it's own magazine. It's called "Off Grid" and it's published by the makers of the "Recoil" gun mag. Basically making this thread to see who's seen this magazine and what the general consensus is.
Price Retail price for the mag is $8.99. Seemed a bit steep to me, but after reading "Recoil" its parent mag and really enjoying its style figured I'd give it a go. Not sure as to how often they tend to publish it given its new nature, but the first mag is listed to display until 9/17/13. Looks like it could be a seasonal publication.
Quality Like it's parent magazine Recoil, I LOVE the feel of this magazine. Most gun/outdoor/etc. mags are printed on cheap feeling, thin paper. This has a thick, textured cover and filled with high-quality photos. Helps explain some of the cost. The magazine just feels good in the hand.
Content The debut mag states plainly in the intro that it intends to start basic and go more in-depth on subjects as its reader base becomes more familiar with prepping concepts. Content of the first issue include: First-aid kits, Blow-out kits (first aid kits for gunshots, major trauma, etc.), water purification, multitool reviews, MRE/long-term foods taste-tests, prepping for power loss, selecting a BOB bag with reviews, ham radios, basic firearm selection, etc. The articles start basic, I'll admit, so I'm waiting to see which direction they take it as they step up in complexity. Overall, I good intro into prepping for someone new to the topic. It will seem simple to most preppers, but I picked up a few useless tips from it. For instance, I never actually though about rigging up a small water distillation set-up for camping/hiking/travel.
Depth/amount Was a touch disappointed the debut issue was only 130 pages, especially for $9. With that said, while I do believe it was overpriced, I'm interested to see what direction the mag will go in and will definitely follow it. It takes on more of an urban approach to prepping, and while a rural guy myself, I found I picked up a few good pointers and had an enjoyable read to boot. My favorite part is seeing pics and reviews of new gear I may not have otherwise noticed. Being a bit of a gear #####/hoarder it naturally appealed to me lol
