Killer Reviews

Killer Review

The Killer Review badge indicates that a review is among the best of the best gear reviews on Trailspace.

What makes a review "killer?"

A Killer Review is a gear review that meets high standards for quality, and has received significant positive feedback from the Trailspace community.

To earn the Killer Review badge, a review must:

  • Be a reasonable length. A Killer Review discusses a product’s performance in appropriate detail, but is not filled with extraneous information.
  • Include original pictures and/or video. Readers want to see your gear experience, and as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Upload images to your Trailspace account; external images don't count toward Killer status.
  • Include a brief summary. A Killer Review gets to the point with a succinct and meaningful summary.
  • Have both pros and cons. The best reviews acknowledge both a product's strengths and its weaknesses.
  • Receive positive community feedback. No review can be considered "killer" without overwhelmingly positive community feedback, in the form of "helpful" votes.
