Every day our members help make Trailspace the best outdoor gear community around, helping other hikers, climbers, paddlers, skiers, and trail runners find the right backcountry gear for outdoor adventures.
So it's only fitting that we honor our top gear reviewers annually.
Below we present the folks most recognized by fellow community members last year for their helpful, informative, real-world gear reviews, which earned them the most reviewer reputation points in 2018.
As a thank-you for their efforts and contributions (and their patience as we prepared a way to honor them), we're sending each winner a special-edition, Trailspace Top Reviewer of 2018 Bindle Bottle. The 24-fluid-ounce Bindle Bottle features an integrated storage compartment and a vacuum-sealed, dual-walled design, so your drink will stay cold and your pockets will stay free.
Presenting our Top 10 Reviewers of 2018:
