This is my personal blog and all opinions and observations are based on my own experience. In accordance with Federal Trade Commission regulations, I state at the bottom of my product reviews whether a manufacturer has provided a free product (or compensation) for my review. All products described have been paid for by me with my own money unless otherwise stated.
Gossamer Gear, a manufacturer of ultralight backpacking gear located in Austin, Texas. Gossamer Gear provided me with gear to test and for demonstrations and teaching purposes. However, I don't receive any financial compensation from Gossamer Gear, am under no obligation to make favorable reviews, and all reviews are based on my own opinions.
