Product Reviews Onlijne

Since touring and backpacking share a lot of types of gear, I thought you touring folks might be able to answer this question: Are there any good web sites that contain a lot of consumer reviews of backpacking equipment?

I use mtbr.com extensively and have even been known to sift through the scant amount of info on roadbiekreview.com, and I'd like to find a similar site for backpacking gear (to be used both for backpacking and bike touring).

Thanks!

I like Sgt Rock's site. It's a good one for all kinds of hiking questions. Good user discussions too.

Thanks. This is just what I was looking for. Though this was probably right under my nose, since it's a sister site to mtbr.com and roadbikereview.com. Doh.
