Disclaimer: Backpack and Gear (Backpack-and-gear.com) reflects the views and opinions of the owner. The information on this web site should not be substituted for medical advice. Hiking and backpacking can be physically demanding activities. Always consult a doctor about your individual situation before starting any physical exercise.
Backpack-and-gear.com uses affiliate programs for monetization, which means when you click on links to various merchant sites that I recommend in my articles and make a purchase, this can result in a commission that is credited to this site.
Some affiliate programs and affiliations include, but are not limited to, Commission Junction, SiteSell, Amazon.com, Avantlink, Linkshare, and more.
I have chosen to only recommend products in my articles that I use or have thoroughly researched. My credibility online means everything to me, so I take my responsibility as an affiliate marketer very seriously. I also DO NOT do any paid reviews.
Backpack-and-gear.com does not sell any products directly. All income from this site is earned from affiliations and sponsor ads. I thank you very much when you purchase products and support my advertisers because that is what pays for the Web site.
OK, now for the legalese...
Even though I stand behind everything I promote, backpack-and-gear.com and the owner (Joe Regallis) assume no liability for products purchased outside of backpack-and-gear.com.
I know that sounds harsh, but it's just legal speak. :) My integrity means everything out here and I would not personally refer you to garbage.
Third-Party & Sponsor Ads
Text ads that appear in the center and right columns of Backpack and Gear and occasionally near the bottom of some pages are sponsor ads by Google AdSense (they are labeled with "Ads by Google" or "AdChoices"). backpack-and-gear.com does not personally endorse the products and services advertised in these ads.
These companies are not affiliated with backpack-and-gear.com. The only affiliation present is the one between backpack-and-gear.com and Google. In other words, commissions/profits are generated from Google for displaying these ads.
Also, the Ads that appear in the right column of backpack-and-gear.com are a combination of advertiser and affiliate ads. Again, I do not endorse paid, advertiser ads.
If you have questions about any affiliations on this website, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'll be more than happy to clarify or provide additional details if necessary.
Backpack-and-gear.com assumes no liability for products purchased from third-party websites or sponsor ads. Please make sure you read the terms and conditions of any product you purchase.
Backpack-and-gear.com assumes no liability for injuries occurred while hiking or backpacking.
