What You Get

As a member you get exclusive access to:

  • Weekly Member Journal Posts (on Mondays): these are longer posts as they are insights into what I am looking at, thinking about, and trying to find the best item/setup for. The posts include things that non-members might not see for months, if ever. When I test out a new variant of an item which doesn’t warrant a full review, small things I am just fiddling with — I post about it for members in these weekly posts. I also write about processes, tools, and link to articles I find interesting. Half behind the scenes and half additional content, these are some of my favorite posts to write.
  • The Best Page: this page is a yearly look at the best items I have found in various categories. Why they are the best and how to pick between the best ones in that category. This is the ultimate buyers guide, exclusively for members. Top three items in many categories.
  • And more exclusive pages: Including a picture gallery of the bags as shown on me for reference, and an updated list of the gear I Carrie in different bags.
  • Member Discord Group: Come chat with other members (and me) about all the things I talk about on the site and much more. It’s super fun and has some lively discussions about all sorts of gear.

Most review sites are biased in some way. These sites work hard to find and recommend something which is the ‘best for most people’ or for a niche type of person. These sites rarely condemn stuff as bad, because doing so would be bad for future pre-release review samples. While other sites look at ratings and reviews on Amazon only, and then present you with a curated list of top rated Amazon items all nicely affiliate linked for you.

None of this is what I do, I hate that stuff.

I look to find the best thing I can find, per my own needs. I explain it, tell you why it is the best and why you might like it, but really why I like it, and that’s that. I stand behind all of my reviews.

The bottom line is that this site is member-supported — there are no advertisements, or product placement. The site makes money in only two ways: people pay to become members, or people buy things through affiliate links. Sometimes I get items which are sent so I can review them. That’s great for me, but I’ll clearly tell you when that is, and I don’t care about offending these companies. Members first, always.

That’s it.
