My name is Darren Edwards and I am passionate about hiking, bush-walking (or whatever you choose to call it). My mission is encourage the Australian community to get outdoors and discover the many benefits that nature can provide.
As a field-tester, the reviews I prepare are based on my own hiking experiences in real-life situations and represent an unbiased account of the gear I use and trust.
When I conduct my field tests, I never write the review after the first outing as that does not provide me with enough information about the product or its durability. I like to test each item at least 3-4 times in a range of conditions so that I can provide an honest and impartial review. A lot of hiking gear reviews that you find online are generated from a collection of other online reviews, not actual tests in the field. I don’t think that provides you with a true account of performance.
I PROVIDE THOROUGH TESTING AND HONEST REVIEWS
