About Me


Hello, my name is JJ Johnson.

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and now live in beautiful Bend, Oregon. Over the last decade I have also lived in Carnation WA, Erie CO, and Chicago IL. But I must say it is good to be back in Bend. I have a passion for the outdoors; whether it is hiking, climbing, golfing, cycling, running, or triathlons. With this passion I have a belief that there is no bad weather, just bad gear. To that end, I started this site to give an honest review of gear I have used on my adventures.

Along with the reviews section, I have added an adventures section with trip and race reports as well as a knowledge section with some articles about gear tech. With my outdoor pursuits I also like to tote my camera along and thus have connected to the site to my photography profile for those interested. Thanks for visiting!
