What to write?
Here are some things to consider when reviewing gear:
Ease of Use: Do parts and features work as expected? Consistently?
Features: Any noteworthy features, designs, or technology? Do they live up to expectations?
Construction & Durability: Is it well made? How has it held up over time?
Conditions: Where, when, and how long have you used this gear?
