We started our journey a few years back as a couple of friends who loved spending time fishing, and camping. We all loved kayaking as well so we carried them often and explored all kinds of rivers. It should be an impressive time spent in nature with no complication. Mostly it was, but there was one issue.
Soon we discovered that some of the gear we are carrying isn’t working properly or there were severe drawbacks with them. More we looked, more issues we discovered. We discovered that some pieces of our gear performed exceptionally well, without a single problem.
Then we launched Outsidegears. The main purpose was to test kayaks, tents and fishing equipment and find all the issues with some products. We also wanted to find the best products we would use on our next trip.
Precisely this is the sole purpose of our website. We want to help others enjoy more while kayaking, camping or fishing simply by using the best equipment available. We test each piece of equipment in nature in real-world conditions and look for all the good and bad.
That’s why gear you can see right here is the best of the best and to meet even the highest requirement. Well, if it can meet our criteria, it will be on the site. If it fails in nature, it won’t reach the site!
For some of you this kind of testing looks complicated and annoying, but for us, it is a hobby, a job that has huge importance. After all, not a single person likes spending time in a tent in nature that leaks, is impractical or blown away by the wind.
That’s why we risk ourselves and we put to the test any product that claims to be great. After days of testing, we rate a product. If it has 4 stars or more, we will publish on the site. If it has under 4 stars, you won’t see it!
Over time, we proved that choosing the best gear is more than just possible. All you need is time, knowledge of how to conduct proper testing and a desire to help others. Today, we have millions of people all over from the world asking for our help and our knowledge. We are constantly testing new gear and putting it to the harshest conditions Mother Nature can provide. Yes, it is far from an easy task, but it is something we have to do.
With our help, we guarantee you a better time, safer camping and more appealing, overall experience in nature. It is much easier when you use equipment that works like a charm and that doesn’t fail after some time. All of you should know this kind of equipment exists, and it is available today and with our help, you can finally find it.
We will continue precisely what we have been doing all along. We will test the most desirable, most expensive and most affordable gear on the market to provide you with the answer to the question, which one is the best!
