How Our Model Works

We have a favor to ask. If there’s something you want that we haven’t reviewed yet, you can still help us keep doing the good work we do in one of two ways:

-Let us know what you’d like us to review

-Consider purchasing that item from one of our affiliate retailers. Just click on the retailer’s name below and for no additional cost to you, you can help us. We’ll keep testing, researching, and writing the most comprehensive meta-reviews on outdoor gear. (Read more below as we lift the veil on how we keep the website going!)

Thank you for your support and may you have great adventures!

Treeline Review is 100% Reader-Supported. You are what inspires us to keep creating high-quality comprehensive reviews of gears. But ever wonder how model works? We’re gonna lift the veil on how we keep the Treeline website running.


We don’t sell ads. Instead, if you read a story and take our gear recommendation seriously enough to buy something from one of our links, some (but not all) retailers will give us a small commission. This is at no additional cost to you. It’s literally the same price to you.


Our tenet is never to push you towards gear. We’re not pushy used cars salespeople. We’re outdoors people talking to our friends about what we’ve seen out there that’s worthy of your time and money. We’ll tell you the good and bad.


We analyze and aggregate outdoor reviews to bring you the information you need to make informed gear decisions.

We are professional outdoor writers who report on what gear reviewers find.


Our Mission

Anyone who has ever gone on a gear-research binge knows accumulating, reading, and making decisions based on gear reviews can take hours.

Treeline Review saves readers time by writing our guide and basing our findings on the aggregated review process.

Treeline Review’s recommendations are not picked on the whims of our researchers, but on the consensus of hundreds of reviewers.
— Liz Thomas, Editor in Chief







What's an aggregated review?

We believe readers should be able to easily access and assess the multitude of information that is already available on the internet.

Our reporters analyze dozens of outdoor review sites and hundreds of customer reviews.

Treeline Review’s mission is to provide transparent, objective, journalistic meta-reviews for outdoor items.
