Every day our members help make Trailspace the best outdoor gear community around. They contribute first-hand, independent reviews and share personal outdoor experiences to help other hikers, climbers, paddlers, skiers, and trail runners find the right backcountry gear for outdoor adventures.

It's only fitting that we honor and thank our top gear reviewers.

Below are the folks most recognized last year by their fellow community members for sharing helpful, informative, real-world gear reviews, earning them the most reviewer reputation points in 2017.

Congratulations, everyone! As a thank-you for your efforts and contributions, we're sending each of you a Trailspace Top Reviewer of 2017 Stainless Steel Para-Bottle from Vargo. The 34-ounce Para-Bottle features seven feet of integrated replaceable 550 paracord in the carry loop, a geometric shaped lid, standard wide mouth compatible threading, and food grade stainless steel construction.

Thank you!
