Base Camp @ Grand Lake offers a wide variety of product reviews for outdoor gear. And, we are always adding to our list, with several new reviews upcoming later in 2022. Writing gear reviews is a vital component of our website because it allows us to assist people with making an informed decision about the gear that they are interested in. And being informed will (hopefully) facilitate the purchase of a product that they will be satisfied with.
There is a plethora of outdoor products available, which can make the decision about what to purchase a daunting, overwhelming process. We aim to be a beacon of light in this process. We have carefully researched nearly every product that we have purchased and written a review for. Further, we want to emphasize the old adage of, “You get what you pay for.” In many instances, paying a little more up front will save you money in the long run.
The most rewarding aspect of writing gear reviews is when we hear back from people, telling us that they purchased something based upon our review(s) and loved it! That is what Base Camp @ Grand Lake is all about: helping people find outdoor gear and writing about our adventures. We want to encourage people to get outside and enjoy nature.
What you can expect from our gear reviews: Reviews posted by Base Camp @ Grand Lake are written without bias. The reviews contain pictures and as much pertinent detail about the gear as possible. Some reviews compare/contrast similar products to help people understand key differences between those products. At the bottom of the reviews, the purchase location and price are listed. When applicable, the reviews will also have a hyperlink to other reviews for gear that is used in conjunction with the item currently being looked at.
The format of our gear review tab has evolved significantly since Base Camp @ Grand Lake first began. Now, when you click on “Gear Reviews,” there is a drop down with 7 category options to click on. Please note that some of the reviews are listed in multiple categories since they are applicable in more than one.
7 Gear Review Categories:
Apparel & Footwear ~ Bike & Other ~ Camp & Hike ~ Kayak & Paddleboard ~ Racks & Stands ~ Ski & Snowshoe ~ Canine
Once you click on a category, you will then have another drop down option for all the reviews written within that category. Click on the item of interest, read the review and then click on the star rating at the very bottom to let us know how useful the review was. If you have any questions about the review or need more information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We enjoy hearing from people and providing assistance.
Find your base camp… Find your adventure…
