We believe the best gear reviews are those that objectively compare and contrast. To that end, we partner with our sister site OutdoorGearLab.com for gear review information. OutdoorGearLab was launched in July 2011 as a spin-off of SuperTopo's gear review section, which originally was exclusively focused on climbing gear, and expanded over time to include general outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and more.
