About Us

It’s hard to find the right gear for your job, whether that’s an indoor job or a demanding outdoor profession that requires PPE. For instance, if you’re looking for boots that have a safety toe, and are waterproof but at the same time comfortable – you may expect to spend a lot of time sifting through tons of information. Sadly, sometimes you end up being bombarded by data that’s not entirely useful and you don’t even get close enough to the gear you’re looking for.

This is where we come in.

We’ve created a resource hub that allows various professionals to find top-notch work wear that’s comfortable, durable, and most importantly – suitable for their jobs!

Our Motto “Work Gear Advice, Tips and Reviews that Really Work”

What makes our reviews work?

Simple – we have a meticulous process in place to ensure unbiased evaluations.

First and foremost, we’re strictly objective with our choices. We buy, try and test all the products that we recommend. We don’t receive payments or sponsorships from companies to recommend or promote their products. We’re 100% editorially independent and we create the content for our reviews based on our own experiences while trying out the products.

Our Selection Methodology

Our product selection methodology is vigorous and 100% editorially independent

  • After meticulous research, we carefully select the top products in each category. We select products from a wide range of prices, and brands, so we can get a balanced perspective.
  • We purchase all the products as you would, and we NEVER receive any free products, payments, endorsements or sponsorships from manufacturers. As mentioned, our main goal is to be 100% editorially independent – which is why we don’t accept the free sample units that manufacturers offer. This enables us to create impartial yet reliable content that brings great value to our readers.
  • Our product testing team, first, carefully reviews each product individually and measures and benchmarks its performance against key metrics, taking a holistic approach and covering all aspects from durability to value for money.
  • We rank each product against comparable and alternative options in the same (product) category. This makes the reviews more relevant as readers will be able to check the products side-by-side for easier reference and a more efficient selection process.
  • We keep most products for continuing testing, (so we can see how they perform over time) while the remaining ones are donated and/or sold. This ensures that the products are maximized to their fullest potential and can be used productively by others.

How We Select the Best Products for Evaluation

We sift through numerous products in our search for the top choices in specific categories, such as the best steel-toed work boots, most comfortable work shoes, and so on. We then buy the products that stand out the most, trying and evaluating their performance in different scenarios while comparing them side-by-side with one another as well.

How We Test the Top Picks

We’ve come up with precise testing procedures that are designed to prominently showcase the products’ functional benefits while at the same time, making their weak points become more apparent as well. To determine how the products will perform in different scenarios, we use them in both normal and challenging conditions, which gives us an idea of how they stand up against their competitors. We also use quantitative analysis, maximizing calculated data that we then follow to rate these top picks according to specified categories.

How our Product Reviews, Tips and Advice can help you

Firstly, we understand the challenges of selecting the top choice among dozens of products in a specific category. We know it’s not that easy to look for gear that has all the qualities you need and want, in the price range that you prefer. Our goal is to help make your selection process more effective by creating product reviews containing pertinent information – which you will need to successfully sift through the numerous items in the market today. We do the hard work for you as our expert reviewers test out the products in real-life conditions, so there’s no need to go through the time-consuming process in your quest to discover the top choice.

We went one step further by comparing the best choices alongside similar products that you’ll most likely encounter in your search. This way, you’ll see what characteristics make the top products stand out when compared to the others. The comparative analysis also gives you a sneak into the products’ shortcomings, so you’ll know what to expect with each specific choice.
