We have some conditions that all product vendors should understand before sending us products to review:
We shoot and edit the review for YouTube, and try to incorporate it into one of our adventure travel series videos.
We blog about it.
We are one of the most trusted 4WD channels in the world. So please read our rules of acceptance of review gear,
We only accept products that we believe have an application in the 4WD, overland touring and adventure travel market.
We do not, and never have accepted offers to do paid advertorial.
We do have sponsors, but we make it well known to our audience who these underwriters are.
We consider all underwriting offers, for product placements, co-branding and apparel.
We are presently interested in camp stoves, apparel, photographic, recovery gear, tents and swags, vehicle lights and boots/shoes.
The following conditions are placed on all product reviews on Nomad Expedition Overland:
We get to use and test the product.
No exclusivity is implied if we accept a product review. We are free to review competitors products at any time and in any country. We may compare your products to similar products in the same market.
We have freedom of expression. Our content is never vetted before release. Please donâ€™t ask.
If we have a problem, we will share it with you, and for what itâ€™s worth, make any suggestions to you that might improve the product. But itâ€™s only my opinion.
If we believe that a product is faulty, we will hold back on any review to ensure a fair and unbiased review. But please double-check any gear sent to us.
Review products become our property. (Obviously not, if itâ€™s a vehicle or something of particularly high value).
If we wish to keep using it, or sell it, thatâ€™s our choice. Every year we give away equipment that has been reviewed by us. And every year, we keep lots of it too.
If we decide to keep it, itâ€™s because we like it and as a result your publicity may be ongoing and we may continue recommend your product to others.
Where equipment is fitted to one of our own vehicles, we are free to remove it and test alternative products after 12 months of use.
Long term relationships are important to us.
If we really think we do not want to use use an item, and donâ€™t think itâ€™s suitable for us, then we will return it. But we may still talk about it.
If you are happy with these conditions, it means that you have confidence in your product. Contact us at NomadExpedition@shaw.ca
