 There are 4 out of the top 25 who are international reviewers this year which seems pretty good. Great to see gear we might not otherwise and always fun to hear stories about places we'll never go. Thanks to you and all of our international reviewers Vladimir!

Glad to be in this illustrious company...and some infamous ones as well!

I like the fact we are going more international...just picked up a Rab fleece on sale. I hope we see more gear from Europe and other places. Paramo is next on my list.

Thanks to every one of you! You are the reason people come to Trailspace—to read helpful gear reviews.

I also appreciate reading reviews from our international members and reviews of companies that are unknown, or not as well known as they should be, here in North America. 

We want Trailspace to be a place where anyone can review any gear, whether it's the shiniest, new, award-winning piece or a vintage item that has been used for decades. The more outdoor voices, the better the info.

Thanks, everyone!

 People do realize that Ontario is not in the U.S, right?! I know, I know, those crazy Canadians with their colourful bills and "provinces". That makes for a total of 6 of the 25!

Good point Jake! You get full credit. Shouldn't take our friendly northern neighbors for granted. Maybe our poor geography skills just assumed you were in South Alaska...or east I guess.

 I managed to miss you because I didn't go back to the top ten to check Jake. I not only know where Ontario is I've been to several Springsteen concerts and a Shakespeare festival there so no offense to you or Canada intended.

As for BigRed I can't tell you how I missed him when I was counting this morning. Either lack of coffee for me or him spending so much time in the states is making him look like a local.

When did we start calling North Minnesota, Ontario? Did Canada annex it?

I couldn't agree more and I'm glad to be a part of a community that at its core, allows for all voices to be heard. 

Here's to more great reviews in 2018!

Had the chance to take my new bottle on a snowy morning hike yesterday. It's a great, large capacity bottle. Thanks Trailspace!

I agree, great bottle. I showed my daughter and she immediately frowned, I asked why and she said "heavy." I smiled and shook my head and put it in her hand, she was really surprised at how light it is for the size. Thanks!
