Product and gear reviews
If you have an appropriate product, we encourage you to read through our review process and give us a shout if you think it’s a good fit.
Here are answers to a few questions we frequently receive concerning reviews.
What is an appropriate product?
It must have something to do with travel, adventure, hiking, skiing, running, or fitness.
Do you require a sample?
Yes. We will not publish a review without the author personally trying the product or service. The sponsor is responsible with all shipping expenses and the product will not be returned.
We will note at the bottom of the review that the product was provided for testing purposes.
What if you do not like the product?
If there are a few minor irritations or issues, we will publish the review and note the issues.
In the circumstance that we are overall unsatisfied with the product, we will notify the sponsor of the issue. Generally, we will not publish the negative review.
What is included in the review?
We describe the product and the features, discuss how we tested the product, and report our findings. A link to purchase through our affiliate account may be included with the article.
Generally, all photography used will be ours.
We will promote the review on social media. All social media posts will be written by Cool Adventures and submissions from sponsors will not be accepted.
Can we do a giveaway?
Rarely. Let us know of your giveaway or contest idea. Generally contests and giveaways will only be accepted in conjunction with a product review.
If emails of entrants are required to be provided to the sponsor as a part of the contest, the requirement will be noted with the giveaway information. Contest winners will be chosen at random from all eligible entries. The winner’s contact information will be provided to the giveaway sponsor for shipping the prize to the winner. Shipping of prizes direct from the sponsor is a requirement of the giveaway.
