We are outdoor enthusiasts who have built our lives around travel, adventure, and living an active lifestyle. Among the founders of Gear Hacker, we have backgrounds in cycling, mountain biking, climbing, mountaineering, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, and more. Along our journies, we have spent countless hours researching the products that we would use on our adventures. Because we have often lived on shoestring budgets to facilitate our lifestyles, choosing the right piece of gear the first time was often critical.


It was from this background that GearHacker was born. We review the best travel, outdoor, and active lifestyle-related products on the market, and help you choose the items that are best for your needs and your adventures.


To do this, we rank products in detailed side by side reviews to make comparing the top choices easier. Often, there is no clear answer to what the “best” product is, so we make it as easy as possible to compare and understand which ones fit your needs the best.


Long story short, we put in hours of research so that you don’t have to. Our goal is to get you out from behind the computer and into adventure as quickly as possible!


To top that off, we also have a full-time staff searching out the best deals on the internet, so that we can deliver them straight to your inbox!
