If you believed every catalog and advertisement, you’d think that all hunting and fishing equipment made today was “revolutionary” or a “great value.” It isn’t. There are a lot of products out there that are good but oh so ordinary. Picking through this mountain of gear to find the best stuff was hard, but that’s where our seven-man panel of expert sportsmen and gear fanatics came in. Over the past year, they tested hundreds of new outdoor products, using them to fish, hunt, and camp from the southern swamps to the Rocky Mountain wilderness. The following winners of our 7th annual Best of the Best Awards proved themselves better than everything else we tested. Their designs are smart. Their prices are fair. Their performance in the field was outstanding. When it comes to gear, these 18 products are the best of the best.
