At Mad About Hiking I inspire people to experience the outdoors.
I believe that one way to get the best out of hikes is to choose the best hiking equipment and ressources.
That is why I use affiliate links on this blog.
Sometimes when I recommend a product, I’ll link to the company’s website using what’s known as an affiliate or referral link. Basically, if you end up buying a product that you found via my link, I get a commission from the vendor as a small “thank you.”
Sometimes that commission is just a few dollars; sometimes it’s a little more. Sometimes it’s a one-time commission; sometimes it’s a rolling commission — so if you sign up for a monthly subscription service we might get a slice of that monthly fee.
But here’s the important thing — that referral doesn’t cost you a penny. The entire commission comes out of the vendor’s pocket not yours.
And it goes without saying that we’ll never recommend a product simply because it pays us a commission because that would be sleazy, right?
So we’ll only recommend products that we’ve personally used or that come highly recommended by trusted peers.
So that you can easily tell when I’m using an affiliate link, I’ll put (affiliate link) after it.
For instance, this is what an affiliate link to my recommend blog host Siteground looks like:

All good? Great!
