Bob has been an avid backpacker and outdoorsman for well over a decade. Hailing from the beautiful state of Colorado, he now lives in the Ozarks Mountains of Arkansas with his wife, two amazing kids and dog, Hugo. He frequents the local state parks, wilderness areas, long distance trails all while passing on his love for the outdoors to his children. Bob has been a product reviewer for startup companies and larger outdoor brands for the past 8 years and loves to really examine gear to see if it'll hold up to the rigors of the Ozark Mountains.
