Trailspace Names Top 25 Reviewers of 2020

Congratulations to Trailspace's Top 25 Reviewers of 2020!

Despite the challenges of 2020, these exceptional folks contributed 226 informative gear reviews on Trailspace and helped countless others gear up and get outside. They shared first-hand experiences with a range of gear—backpacking stoves, titanium sporks, hiking boots, fanny packs, canoes, snowshoes, baselayers, puffy jackets, shelters, and more.

While travel and adventure was limited and local in 2020, thanks to our members' reviews we vicariously hiked, paddled, skied, ran, and camped around the country (Maine to Washington), the continent (hey, Canada!), and the world (Norway, Russia, the Netherlands). Some top reviewers shared their very first reviews on Trailspace (welcome!), while others added to a lengthy list. A few even made it a family effort, enlisting kids and dogs in the gear testing.

As a thank-you for their outstanding efforts and contributions, we'll be sending each top reviewer a custom Trailspace Trucker Hat from Headsweats.

Congratulations, everyone!
