Hi, I’m Emily Reed, an online gear editor at Outside. I have spent the past four years educating and helping people gear up for their outdoor adventures. 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: to share the best deals on the best products. Come back next Monday for the latest offerings, and send any requests my way via our Facebook Gear page.
