At Alpha and Omega Outdoors, our goal is to help readers to get outside and better enjoy their next outdoor adventures.
Part of how we do that is recommending gear, places to explore, places to stay and more. Below, you can find more information on our editorial process, including how we pick products and places, and how we may be compensated through our content.
Our main goal as a content-driven platform is to find the best solutions for our readers. That may be offering strategies on hunting, fishing, trapping, camping, etc., or it may be recommending some of the best gear related to those activities.
In any case, we’re committed to useful, accurate and practical information above all else. Solving our readers’ problems and challenges is our top priority, and we firmly believe that if we do that the right way, everything else will fall into place. We do our best to keep our stories updated with links to brands, parks and government sites that provide additional info.
In all of our articles and posts we strive to find writers who have vast experience in there activites they are writing about. For gear reviews, we try to find writers who have some experience with the types of products being reviewed, and in many cases we personally field test the products being recommended.
We pride ourselves on our research and commitment to putting out the best possible stories for our readers, and welcome suggestions on how to do that better.
Each story we publish has hours of research, writing, fact-checking and editing behind it, and each article is reviewed by editors, including Charles Eisnnicher, our Lead Editor and Founder.
Affiliate Links & Recommendations
In many of our articles, especially gear-based stories and reviews, we may earn a small commission when readers purchase products through our links.
This doesn’t affect which products are included in the articles, and in most cases our writers are not aware of which brands and products offer us a sales commission. All of the products we highlight are recommended for their quality, performance and overall reputation regardless of any affiliate relationships.
In fact, much of the gear we recommend comes from may comer from small retailers and manufactures that make small batches of products and don’t offer any sort of affiliate relationships at all. However, they are some of the best products out there and so we recommend them.
We strive to recommend the products that would fit best for most audiences, and usually categorize our top picks as:
- Editor’s Choice: the best overall pick based on performance and feedback
- Upgrade pick: where it makes sense to spend more money
- Best value: gear that offers the most bang for the buck
The commissions we make from these articles allow us to pay our writers the best rates possible, and to allow us to put as much time and energy into the research and vetting side of the review process. We don’t want to cut corners, and we want to pay writers and gear testers what they’re worth.
If we receive gear to review directly from brands, it’s noted in the review itself, though most of the gear we field test is purchased. Any brands or products that pay for promotion or advertising on the site is considered “Sponsored.”
