Here are links to the tools of the trade that made it to our Top Shelf picks!
Top Shelf picks are items we feel can meet our most demanding needs in the field, and they only make it to the Top Shelf status after we put them to the test. If you’re looking for an item that’ll work, but isn’t something you would expect to last, or an item you can’t depend on miles in the back-country, it will not be on this page. We may have reviewed it and thought it was OK but if that’s all we thought, it won’t be here. Again, only the items we will trust in the back-country are listed on this page.
