Our Story

What We Do

For each category of goods we review, we conduct extensive research and testing, and compile a hand-picked list of recommendations from authors with relevant experience. If you click on to the retailer’s site and make a purchase of some of the products we recommend, we may receive an affiliate commission.

We don’t just forget about an article once it’s been published. Our crew works tirelessly to ensure that all of our previous suggestions remain up-to-date, accurate, and useful. We know what’s hot on the market.

We are not partial to any one store or brand, and the prices of the things we recommend range from affordable to extravagant. To ensure a smooth purchasing experience, we only recommend reputable businesses who consistently exceed expectations in customer service.

Please be aware that even products we recommend may be recalled or have their intended usage changed in the future. We strongly suggest keeping an eye on any relevant official announcements made by the manufacturer of the products you intend to acquire.

We also understand how annoying it is to perform research on a product, add it to your cart, and then find out that it is out of stock, which is why we employ full-time editors to monitor stock levels on a daily basis.

“The team behind this site runs several separate outdoor equipment sites with detailed reviews. So we have deep knowledge and an overview of everything that is happening in the outdoor industry!”
Our Review Process

Why You Can Trust Us

At FunOutdoors, we’re relentless in our pursuit of providing the most comprehensive, to-the-point, and unbiased reviews of the best outdoor gear on the market.

FunOutdoor product endorsements are made strictly for editorial purposes. While we appreciate the occasional freebie, we will never allow retailers, PR agencies, commissions, or salesmen to have a say in what we write about or how we cover a product. Because we believe that making the wrong purchase is a waste of both money and resources, we undertake the legwork for you by drawing on our network of experts and testers to help you make more informed selections.
