We strive to provide objectivity

and independence in our ratings for those who love nature,

hiking, backpacking, and adventure.

We first test out all the gear to give you the most useful and reliable reviews. With our vast background in outdoor, athletic, mountaineering and hiking gear, it is important to know that we review only products that we would be interested in purchasing ourselves.

Our team is composed of outdoorsmen and adventure enthusiasts based in the USA.

We always give honest reviews of common outdoor gear including tents, backpacks, footwear, climbing gear, camping and hiking adventures as well.

Being involved in the outdoor industry is one of the most rewarding and great things one can do.  Whether it is working, volunteering, supporting, or just taking advantage of the vast amounts of resources our lovely planet has to offer.

Our team includes two professional athletes and contributing editors who give their best to give helpful reviews for all people who enjoy the outdoor activities.
