James Doyle – Editor in Chief
Hiking and Climbing
Hi guys and welcome to our site! As you can see, my name is James, and I’m a self proclaimed hiking and climbing guru and I own a rock climbing gym where I love to encourage people to step out of the comfort zone and enjoy their everyday accomplishments.
This site is made for everyone who is into any kind of outdoor sports, activities or anyone who wants to get out of the house and try something new and good for your body and mind. My favorite activities are mountain climbing and hiking, so those are the topics I’ll cover most. And, with the help of my friends, we’ll cover as much outdoor equipment as we can so you can know what products are the best.
Everything from equipment, essentials, wardrobe, packs and popular destinations, you name it. I’ll search for the best products on the market and I will share with you my personal tips and experience, so you can improve your hiking experience like never before. We only share products that we personally choose and test out, and when they pass our testing, we can put it in our list of top products for a certain category.
Now, after I’ve introduced myself, check out the rest of the team! They are all assigned to create and edit the content in their main expertise, and here are their stories:

Not a stranger to kayaking, he can often be found fighting raging rivers and going down rock ridden merciless streams. Our chief gear tester for water related sports, Mark uses his experience to bring our readers best reviews of the latest products. He prides with an unbiased approach to his reviewing process so when you see an editor’s award, know that it earns it based on real life performance and overall quality.
