Honestly, it’s not that important but we get it – who are “WE”?
Well, let’s start with Mike.
Mike built the website, owns the website, manages the website. He’s built and managed quite a few websites as that’s his main source of income. If you would like him to build a site for you, he’d be happy to! He’s a tech dude but the last thing he wants to be doing is spending time behind a keyboard.
Mike has had a love for adventure since the dawn of time. Ok, so he’s not that old but it probably started when he was a wee little Boy Scout. His troop wasn’t at all interested in merit badges and instead they learned to backpack long distances (back to back 50 milers), kayak trips, rock climbing and snow camping.
Later he competed in long distance bicycle races, went motorcycle road racing, then moto desert racing (as in Barstow to Vegas), mountaineering (climbing the highest points in the western US), and so on and on…
You get the idea. These days he’s slowed down a bit but is an avid mountain biker, road cyclist, ADV rider and who knows what’s next.
Ahhhh. Now we get to the good stuff! GearProReview.com is a great place to get honest reviews on all sorts of gear. Why?
The Most Important Part:
- Nobody pays us to write a review,
- Nobody pays us to edit a review,
- Nobody pays us to have an opinion.
And that’s the way it’s going to stay. Did you know that that’s not how some other sites work? Really!
We realize that you probably don’t want the cheapest, nor the most expensive… So we’re doing high quality reviews of everything in the middle!
Take a moment and read “How We Write Our Reviews“
You should also know that many of the links on this site are ‘affiliate links’. In simple terms, we might get paid something when we send you to a website and you buy something. Keyword is might. Affiliate links will never cost you anything extra and in fact they often include a discount to you – so that’s a win win!
We plan on reviewing a wide range of gear – starting simple with outdoor gear, computer gear and of course power tools but will branch out to whatever catches our fancy next.
Are you a manufacturer or distributor? Have something you would like reviewed? We’d be happy to give you our honest opinion – no strings attached. Don’t like our opinion? Have a new updated version? Let us know. That’s seriously how things get better, right?
These days you have to have one. Ours is simple. Be nice. That’s it. It’s ok to disagree and we welcome your opinion, just be nice about it, remember your manners and try to keep the conversation PG-13. It’s ok to attack our opinion(s) but never attack the person – that’ll get you blocked.
We have a few friends who are also going to write reviews. Each one knows what we’re looking for and is an expert in their particular field. Each of their posts will have all the details you want, great images and of course well thought out pros and cons.
