I get a bit frustrated when new items come to the market, from manufacturers, and several threads pop up on BPL about it. This creates management issues for the participants, who have to direct others to the “other” thread, duplicates forum material, etc. Its also painful to search for new gear announcements and lots of things are probably missed amongst everything else.
Can we have a thread somewhere in the gear section, specifically for new gear? Those who come across a new piece, can then go straight there, and probably see straight away if someone has already started a thread on it. This will avoid duplication. It would also serve as a good community resource allowing us to more easily keep up with new things on the market.
Note, this section would not be used for things that are in the idea stage. Eg there is a great thread right now about Apex Vests; that would not be appropriate here as it is not yet on the actual market. Alternatively, we could also have another forum section, where manufacturers or potential manufacturers could start threads to bring up their gear ideas, prototypes, etc, to elicit constructive feedback from the community.Dec 21, 2015 at 6:10 pm #3371669

How would you manage aging? Packs, shoes and tents all age at different rates and get tested differently, for an offhand thought.Dec 9, 2017 at 5:01 am #3506479
