We strive to provide the best information possible about Travel Gear and anything else related. We never intentionally mislead people for the sake of profit or any other reason. While we do make a little money (amazon commissions are very small) when people buy stuff through our Amazon links or click on our ads, we only recommend products that we believe genuinely are the best.
That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.
Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to specify this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place.
This would be tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers. But rules is rules.

PS. In case this isn’t painfully obvious above, we are not responsible for your decisions. We provide information and you make buying decisions. Hurray for the legal stuff… Ugh
