I love to test outdoor gear and services, and some of the articles I write have affiliate links.

This means that when you click on some links, I receive a small commission from that vendor for referring you to their site to purchase an item. This does not result in any additional cost to you. You pay the same thing as if you went directly to that vendor’s website to purchase an item.

Not all links are affiliate links because not all vendors have those programs. I write reviews on what I think are the best products and services, and since I’m a one-person army, I can’t spend a lot of time on gear and services that don’t make me want to run off into the mountains.

I also donate 10% of all net profits to the trails I hike each year. Maintaining our trail systems is important, and having this website support the trails I love is a no-brainer for me.

If you enjoy the reviews and articles on this site, please consider making your next purchase through one of the links in this site’s content or by clicking on one of the vendor banners in “Deals and Discounts.”

I appreciate the support – thank you.
