Men's Journal is a monthly men's lifestyle magazine focused on outdoor recreation and comprising editorials on the outdoors, environmental issues, health and fitness, style and fashion, and gear. It was founded in 1992[2][3] by Jann Wenner of Wenner Media, who sought to create a publication for "active, accomplished men to fuel an adventurous and discerning lifestyle".[4] Wenner Media sold Men's Journal to American Media, Inc. in 2017.

Each issue of Men's Journal is divided into 3 subsections:

  • Notebook — encompasses the latest trends, products, destinations, style & design
  • Blueprint — provides the latest science articles and expert advice on diet, fitness, and exercise
