Forums related to the buying and selling of gear. Start with Reader Reviews to see how our readers rate other brands and products. And of course, there's the infamous Gear Swap (buy/sell used gear), Gear Deals (deals from around the web), and our new Giveaways programs, which feature free gear for our readers.
- Gear GiveawaysFrom time to time, we will partner with outoor gear brands who will provide complimentary gear to selected members of our community in exchange for an informal review of their gear by the community member. These informal reviews will be published as a "Community Review" and recognized as "Sponsored Content". The purpose of this forum is for giveaway announcements and updates about Community Reviews currently in progress.

- Reader ReviewsUPDATE November 2015: The Reader Reviews forum from the old website is here, feel free to browse. But this spring, we'll be migrating this to a dedicated Reader Review section of the website that will provide for better usability! Description: Reader Reviews provide an opportunity for readers to provide feedback about the products and brands they love - and hate. Blatantly irresponsible and mean reviews will be deleted, of course. Use your head before hitting the send button and if you're just coming here to complain, then, well ... at least balance it out with some love, ok?
