GearFerret came about out of frustration in trying to find the best outdoor gear–either for myself, or for my kids. Sometimes it was a sleeping bag, other times, trekking poles or hydration pack or headlamp or tent.
The options & choices are far too many to make a quick, easy choice, and I’ve found that, depending on my preferences, what I specifically need, and what features I care most about, making any kind of choice is never easy.
Worse yet, I end up going down a rabbit hole, spending hours & hours researching products, features, reviews, etc. Usually this goes on for days–sometimes weeks. I usually end up even more confused. It’s super frustrating.
And maybe worst of all, sometimes I’ve exhaustively researched products, made my choice, bought the product, only to find it was shoddy or doesn’t hold up in the field. This has happened with products like a tent or lantern or boots or water shoes. Especially with kids–or if you’re rough on your gear–this can be a problem.
The last thing you want is to carry something into the backcountry, only to have it break, or leak, or rip, or just plain not work. Especially on a once-in-a-lifetime trip you’ve been looking forward to. To add insult to injury, then you end up having to pack that junk out.
