At TrekkingGears, we pride ourselves on our independent gear and product reviews. When readers buy the products we write about (or make purchases after clicking on a product we’ve reviewed), we earn an affiliate commission that helps pay for our work. It is our goal to make the buying experience as seamless as possible, so we’ll be choosing affiliate partners on a case-by-case basis as we uncover the best deals and prioritize the most straightforward shopping experience. That said, there is no guarantee any link represents the current best price for a product.

Our reputation is the most valuable asset we possess. We will continue to review and discuss products honestly and independently.
