Hi, I’m Ben Fox, an online gear editor at Outside, where I’ve been reviewing and testing gear for one and a half years (doing reviews like this). Each week, I scour the web for the best gear deals. I look for products that I’ve tested and am comfortable recommending to family, friends, and staff. The goal: share the best deals on the best products. Come back next Monday for the latest offerings, and send any requests my way on our Facebook Gear Page.
