- Nov 12, 2005The BPL subscription is clearly a better value than Backpacker magazine.
You can get the entire subscription back with product discounts.
I trust the integrity of all reviewers, but the products selected for
review is not influenced by advertising. I suspect that major
Backpacker advertisers can ask that a review not be published while
product development continues.
A subscription and buying products supports leading edge product
development. I also encourage you to buy Speer, JRB, OES, HH, etc.
products for the same reason.
