Trailspace strives to be the most comprehensive, accurate, and helpful community for finding and sharing facts and opinions about gear for human-powered, backcountry recreation.
Trailspace publishes independent gear reviews, news, and discussions about thousands of outdoor products. Our community is committed to sharing helpful, real-world reviews and experience to help fellow hikers, backpackers, climbers, skiers, trail runners, and paddlers find dependable and appropriate gear for their backcountry adventures.
Since 2001, our members have shared thousands of user reviews of backcountry equipment, apparel, and footwear. And our volunteer Review Corps members take that commitment further, testing new, noteworthy backcountry gear extensively in the field and sharing their results and expertise in high-quality, comprehensive reviews.
Our outdoor gear community includes hikers, backpackers, climbers, skiers, trail runners, and paddlers of all abilities, from trail novices to confirmed gearheads.
Alicia and Dave MacLeay founded Trailspace in 2001 as an outdoor gear community. Since then the community has grown to more than 16,000 members, who regularly share backcountry gear reviews, expertise, and opinions.
