Hello, my name is Daniel Helfen. I am a 29-year-old fitness buff and outdoorsman, and I am the founder of this website.
My team and I started The OutDoor Geeks to help you shop for gear that will satisfy your needs. There are a lot of high-quality products on the market today. Our thorough buyers guides will allow you to compare the best products and make an informed purchasing decision. From backpacks to indoor exercise equipment that will get you fit for your next long hike, we do the research so that you can enjoy the results.
Don’t Sweat the Research, Just Enjoy the Trail!
Sometimes you meet a certain kind of outdoors enthusiast while you are out enjoying some fresh air. You know, that guy who is really into his gear. He seems friendly as you exchange greetings, but he starts talking about how awesome his gear is once he has a chance.
If you own perfectly fine gear, you probably find him annoying as he runs his mouth. If your gear is beginning to fail you, he may actually convince you to step up your game and upgrade.
You are a smart consumer, so you don’t just go out and buy a random piece of gear based on a new trail buddy’s advice. Instead, you ask yourself whether he got the best deal, and whether the gear he loves so much is right for you. That’s why you get online and search for information to see if the gear lives up to its hype. Before you know it, you are starting at hundreds of reviews and opinions. Suddenly, it looks like researching once piece of gear is going to be more of a workout than hitting the trail.
Well, that is why The OutDoor Geeks are here to help you. We do the research and neatly lay out the results in our user-friendly buyers guides. Just let us sweat the research for you so that you can make the best decision and enjoy the trail with your new gear.
