This is a place to share fair and systematic reviews of gear. Share the good, bad and ugly as well as including how you tested it and reviewed the gear. This is not the place to carry on about a bit of gear that failed, sometimes good gear has a lemon - this is more about systematic reviews. Although this can be a way to help gear manufactures with feedback, this is not the place to hassle them or ask for money back.

Start each thread with
[tag]Brand, product, RRP in AUD. The tags have two parts the type of gear and type of testing/review. eg
[Sleeping bag | Unboxing] Kmart Summit Hooded $29
[Stove | Field test]Jetboil, flash $150

Suggested review types. Unboxing, field test, 1 year on, stress test, teardown.
If someone else has already reviewed the same product in a similar method then please use the initial thread to include your review. Please note if the gear was provide to you for free, loan, discount or if you paid full RRP.

For this to be a legit review, I really think you should eat one. :twisted:

I'll have a corner in my tea? :)

I do intend to mention any downsides that come up, there's not a lot else to say in review.
Perhaps a review of the inaction of the majority, therefore governance, in a world where these alternatives are available and necessary?

I think you might be at it awhile. There is whole books to be written on that subject!

hmm, well, we'll stick with them but they aren't yet ideal. I suspect the material is much thicker than in common zippies as it's not so strong. The sides split easier, at least down to the zipper. This maker also makes larger sizes where the smaller snack size is what we need most. I'll follow any updates but advice on other plastic alternatives welcome?
