Every so often I'm asked why there are so few gear reviews here. The answer, as many people will know, is because I write gear reviews every month for The Great Outdoors magazine. This blog is for other stuff - anything I like as it's non-commercial.
This year there are changes to my reviews for The Great Outdoors. Under the direction of Daniel Neilson the Great Outdoors website is being expanded and amongst other changes it will feature more gear reviews and these will include ones that may not ever appear in the paper magazine and ones that will appear before they do in the paper magazine. As this development is new (and exciting) how it will work out exactly remains to be seen but it should mean that some of my gear reviews are available sooner online than they have been.
The first such reviews are online now and feature two packs - the Gossamer Gear Mariposa and Nigor Zero G. You can find the reviews here.
