The products reviewed on this website are generally procured with my own funding, and if they are not they will have a disclaimer stating as such. All of the gear is either in my gear room at the moment or has been in the past, and I have personally used the gear in the field.
I am currently enrolled in the Research and Development program with FirstLite which provides a discount to their clothing in exchange for honest reviews. This does not influence my reviews, and I have left both good and not-so-good reviews of their products both on their website and mine.
Opinions on this website are mine and do not reflect those of my employer. APTOutdoors is awesome, but I do have a day job.
