The only real Justice of Peace that exists; is the outdoors…
The most important aspect for outdoor gear is: its performance in-situ. This is why our TEST4OUTSIDE experts spend their life outdoors…
TEST4OUTSIDE takes into account much more than the average outdoor testing. We really put the gear through its paces, in extreme conditions, bad weather, mud, grit, abrasion against rocks, from the freezing cold to scorching hot temperatures, over weeks and even months of continual testing. All this provides genuine in-depth testing in real conditions enabling our experts to analyze outdoor gear to its limits. It’s all about putting our testers in the customer’s shoes, who expect their product to be worth its expense and also have 100% confidence in the gear, including in the toughest conditions.
Our aim is to provide as much information as possible using our in-depth experience; so that your purchase choice is suited to your specific needs, expectations and produced from quality materials.
All the products that are presented on TEST4OUTSIDE have been tried, tested and evaluated. They have been validated employing precise analytical criteria that take into account the manufacturer’s specifications, its price range and the customer level that it is targeted for. Our extremely detailed test sheets enable us to give a comprehensive summary on each product, to show if it is a valid purchase, or not.
Testers that know what they are talking about…
The majority of our testers are professionals working in the outdoors, either mountain guides, climbing instructors, ski teachers, experienced trail runners, explorers, etc. They practically live outside, in contact on a permanent basis with the elements in all their glory. They demand efficient, trustworthy and well-designed gear. These professionals put their expertise at the service of TEST4OUTSIDE – for You.
