Our Story

best hiking sticks

When we were new to hiking and camping and searching for detailed configurations for any hiking equipment and tips, we found it hard. So, we made up our minds when we have enough experience, we will take the initiative that will help fellow riders to get the exact information over the Internet.

The platform was born out of the need for information about hiking tips, guides,  and buying gear. This is after our efforts to search for dependable details in the niche bore no fruits while we were still fresh to this hobby. We realized there was a lurking information deficit and there was a need to forge a direction for numerous other hikers in a similar state.

Therefore, we made it our objective to come up with a site that would be a one-stop shop for all details about hiking and camping tools. After gaining sufficient experience in the field, we went ahead to create Hiking Gear Lab, a platform where fellow fanatics can easily obtain precise buying guides and other relevant facts.

We had a comprehensive game plan from the start. Our adept team intended to come up with our rating, reviews, suggestions, and opinions about different products and then avail it to other nature devotees without proper access to such information.

Eventually, in July 2016, we kicked off this epic campaign, sharing our reviews and recommendations with the rest of the hiking universe. That wraps it up for how www.hikinggearlab.com came to be alive.

Our Vision
