Re: [BackpackGearTest] Re: Tests: Where are we at?
- I think we all want to give the others a chance to test gear if we have
already tested a similar item. And in some cases, this is a good thing.
The best course of action, if there is not an immediate surge of
interest in an item, is to apply with a disclaimer that you would be
interested in testing the item, but will pass if there are sufficient
Remember, you might not get the particular item that you REALLY, REALLY
want. But if we are able to increast the number of test calls to 3 a
week, from the one a week, you will likely get some of the gear you like
within the year.
We have a good lineup of winter gear, and Jerry hasn't even contacted
some of the manufacturers yet. If we start getting enough takers with
the next few items, look forward to gear coming out more often. If not,
then it will stay at the one a week schedule.

sometimes takes a little while, but we try to get the word out as soon as we can.
