Promotional Opportunities

Do you make or sell great outdoor gear? Want to reach an active community of thousands of outdoor gear enthusiasts?

Sponsor a prize in a Trailspace gear giveaway, and our 20,000 members will hear about your new pack, tent, soft shell, stove, gift card, or other outdoor prize.

Plus, we'll get your coveted product into the hands of an active outdoor gear reviewer.

What We Give Away

We look for high-quality, desirable outdoor gear, apparel, footwear, and food that appeal to our core audience of backcountry hikers, backpackers, climbers, trail runners, paddlers, and skiers.

Prizes range from tents, sleeping bags, packs, stoves, and snowshoes to smaller essentials and accessories, such as outdoor food, socks, sunglasses, sunscreen, apparel, and first aid kits.

We also like to hear what community members think of their gear prizes. So prizes should be outdoor products that winners can give feedback on later in a Trailspace review.

Current Promotional Opportunities

Prize winners are selected in one of two contests. Winners are active outdoor community members who have already written and shared gear reviews with the Trailspace community.

Write-a-Review Giveaway

Members who write reviews during a Write-a-Review contest's two-week period are eligible to win a specific gear prize, for example a new winter pack or a down sleeping bag.

What you give:

  1. Brands and retailers can sponsor a Write-a-Review contest by donating a new pack, tent, stove, GPS receiver, climbing package, shell, gift card, or other great gear prize.
  2. You may choose to share the contest through your brand's social media and other outlets.

What you get:

  1. Trailspace promotes the contest and prize in our blog, in our newsletter (23,000 subscribers), with promos on the site, and through our social media channels, tagging your brand.
  2. A winning reviewer is selected randomly from all eligible entries by active reviewers at the end of the contest period (see full rules) and announced via our media channels.
  3. Winning reviewers are encouraged to share what they think of their prizes in future user reviews.

Reviewer of the Month

Every month we honor the community member who wrote the most helpful gear review, as determined by vote of the community. These reviewers are the best of the best and win a prize package.

What you give:

  1. Brands and retailers can sponsor gear and food prizes for Reviewer of the Month prizes, such as a first aid kit, socks, stuff sack, water bottle, trail food and meals, or other outdoor prize.
  2. You may choose to share the contest through your brand's social media and other outlets.

What you get:

  1. Trailspace honors the Reviewer of the Month in a blog (including prizes won), in our newsletter (23,000 subscribers), and through our social media channels, tagging your brand.
  2. A prize package featuring your gear prize, outdoor food (ex. bars and meals from sponsoring brands), and a Trailspace cap or pint glass is awarded.
  3. Winning reviewers are encouraged to share what they think of their prizes in future user reviews.
