Decent but ignores small backpacking gear companies

      Comments about Backpacker:

      This is the only magazine dedicated to backpacking, so we're sort of stuck with it. The articles are sometimes interesting, but the themes seem to repeat or at least blend together over time. I guess there's only so much you can write about the subject. One of the biggest problems is that they seem to ignore smaller companies in their gear reviews. Perhaps it's because these companies don't advertise? The cottage industry companies are making some of the best backpacking gear out there, and this magazine chooses to ignore them. Yeah, definitely a disconnect. I occasionally pick up an idea or backcountry recipe, which is why I still receive it.
