Welcome to Trailspace

Trailspace is a gear review site by and for outdoor enthusiasts. Anybody can use Trailspace to find and share the best outdoor gear.

With your help, the Trailspace community is working together to build the best resource for finding and selecting gear for human-powered backcountry recreation.

Here's how it works:

Anyone can review gear they've used

Trailspace is a community of outdoor enthusiasts like you.

We're hikers, climbers, paddlers, backcountry skiers, and trail runners who share our experiences with the gear and clothing we rely on to get outside.

From professional gearheads to outdoor novices, everyone has an important point of view to contribute.

Anyone can write a review, as long as they're honest and transparent about their experience.

The more people who participate, the more useful it becomes.

The best reviews and products are voted to the top

Good reviews are voted up, and rise to the top. The best reviews are shown first so you get the most useful info right away.

Products that consistently receive the highest marks from reviewers are shown at the top of relevant product lists. The best products are shown first so that they're easy to find.

Find the best gear for your needs

Browse or search to find gear you're interested in.

Filter products by category, price, and more.

The highest-rated products are shown first.

Get answers to your questions

If a review is unclear or you have a question, you can leave a comment for the author.

For questions and discussions that don't fit in the review format, consult with other community members in the forums.

Build a reputation by sharing your experience
