Reviews are definitely NOT the primary purpose of this blog. But sometimes we feel so strongly about something we regularly use while out and about that if we think our experience and opinion may be helpful to others, we’ll write a short review. So most of the reviews posted here have something to do with photography gear, hiking gear or clothing/footwear suitable for outdoor adventures. We buy such items based on our own pre-purchase research and we don’t review every item we use. After we published our first review of Peak Design’s CapturePRO Camera Clip, the company reached out to us and offered us an affiliate link that has generated a grand total of US$169.33 in commission income – enough to cover the one year of WordPress fees with enough left over for a couple of coffees!

Book reviews are a fun way to participate in Canada Reads. Occasionally I receive a (free) review copy of a book; these instances are clearly disclosed.

And on very rare occasions, we’ll review something quite random except for the fact that it’s something we absolutely love!
