Why trust us?

We understand how tough it is to find trustworthy gear advice – that’s one of the main reasons we built CleverHiker. We live for outdoor adventure, and we take these guides very seriously. Our experts are passionate about the outdoors and delivering the highest-quality reviews around:

  • Our recommendations are completely independent and based on our actual experience in real-world testing.
  • We’ve logged over 20,000 trail miles and test outdoor gear for a living.
  • We rigorously field-test every product we recommend, which is sadly not the norm.
  • We travel to industry trade shows to learn about upcoming product innovations.
  • We update our guides throughout the year and when new products launch.
  • We treat our recommendations as if they were for our family and friends.
  • We’re lifelong learners and we’re always open to feedback. If you think we’ve missed a noteworthy product or haven’t gotten it quite right, we’d love to know about it.
