We know that sometimes a pair of trail hikers isn’t a 3 star shoe or a 4 star shoe. It’s really more like a 3.5 star shoe. And maybe you think that tent that leaked on you all weekend, fell over at the first gust of wind, and came without all of its poles doesn’t even deserve one paltry star, gosh darn it.
Well, rejoice, for now your gear reviews can range from 0 stars (useless) to 5 stars (don’t leave home without it), and we’ve added half stars in between too. So go ahead. Write a review and tell us exactly what you think of your backcountry gear with half, whole, or no stars at all.
