Meet the Expert
The majority of our reviews come from Wesley, the engineer and the runner.
The Runner and The Engineer
Wesley is our resident Professional Engineer and Runner. He graduated from the University of Florida with the degree, Master of Engineering. He currently practices engineering all over the United States where he has also been able to participate in a myriad of running events like trail runs, triathlons, and half-marathons (no full marathon…yet!). Though his real passion is just being outdoors.
Lindsey is our adventurer. While she’s more of a casual runner she’s disappeared for days after a simple run. So any crazy side stories built into the review may just come from her!
What information do we use in our reviews?
In addition to utilizing information from our experts above we also do the following:
Test, test, test. We always do our best to test a product before hand but it’s not always possible as we’re trying to provide you detailed information on every backpack out there.
Speak with the Manufacturer. We have multiple manufacturers that contact us. If we have a question about one of their products we go straight to the source.
Speak with other Users. We always like to know what other people have to say about the product, so we do our best to get their first hand information as well. If you ever get stopped during a trail or road run and asked about your gear it just may be us!
We are doing our best to provide you with the most up to date information about running backpacks. If you ever have a question about anything don’t hesitate to contact us. Thanks!
