Launched in 2011, Gear Hungry is an independent digital magazine focused on one thing: digging up the best gear for guys from all corners of the internet. Every week, we sift through thousands of updates from hundreds web magazines, blogs, retailers and other product compendiums, then hand pick the best amongst them for publishing. Our minimalist, content-focused design and Retina-quality images provide little distraction from what you’re really here for – the goods.
We’re a collective that creates detailed and technical buying guides, individual product reviews and informative posts on how to use your new gear. We’re knife collectors, watch fanatics, wallet hogs and hikers. When you read any number of online magazines, they’re being paid thousands of dollars (sometimes five figures) to show amorous support for whatever they’re marketing to you. They’re letting the money talk, even if the product can’t walk the walk.
Our buying guides show you a list of the best products with detailed and technical reviews, our individual coverage showcases the coolest new gadgets on the market, and everything else is us dropping our knowledge on you, so you can make more informed choices going forward for the right gear and how to win at life. We have an insatiable appetite for top-of-the-line products; whatever your poison is, you’ll be able to find the very best of it here.
