Freelance Writer: Camping, Hiking, & Backpacking Gear

We’re looking for a freelance writer to help us write “best of” articles for camping, hiking, and backpacking gear following our current review process. This job will start as a paid trial in which you will write 1-3 articles for the site. If you do good work, we will then officially bring you on as a freelance writer and you will be sent multiple article requests each month per your availability and our content budget.


  • Research each provided outdoor gear topic using high-quality sources
  • Present outdoor gear information and recommendations in an easy-to-understand format
  • Submit each article to the editor by its deadline
  • Respond in a timely manner to team communications

Here are two examples of the type of article you will start out writing:


  • Get paid to research and write about the best outdoor gear
  • Build your portfolio
  • Work remotely on your own time
  • Get a link to your personal site in your author bio
  • In the future we will start doing hands-on gear tests. So, if you’re still writing for the site at that time… free gear!


  • Native English speaker
  • 3+ years experience hiking, camping, and/or backpacking
  • Proficiency in basic IT skills (e.g. Google Docs, email)

Preferred but not necessary:

  • Professional or exceptional experience in camping/hiking/backpacking or the outdoor industry (e.g. outdoor coach/guide/instructor, employee at outdoors store, backpacked the PCT, etc.)
  • Freelance writing experience
  • US-based

After the paid trial, if we decide to bring you on as a freelance writer, we will ask you to sign a freelance contract and fill out a W-9.
