Swarovski ATS 65mm Review
By Brock Akers, Rokslide Staff
Every once in a while you come across a product that simply becomes a staple--you'd never hunt without it. A trustworthy piece of gear that you can throw in your pack and without question you know it will perform. It might not be the newest or the top end model, but you trust it and that is worth more than anything when you are on the mountain.
Leica Noctivid vs. Swarovski EL Review
By Steve Osminski, Rokslide Guest Contributor
Last fall, I found myself in a position between myself and some friends with access to a pile of "alpha" binoculars. In addition to using them in the field, I wanted to set up some tests that I could repeat with different binoculars as I came upon them.
Review: Outdoorsmans Pan Head
By Jordan Budd, Rokslide Staff
I think one of the most underrated or overlooked pieces of gear in a kit is not only your tripod legs, but your tripod head. After investing in awesome optics, without a good tripod/head combo it's hard to see the max potential of your optics. Based in Arizona, Outdoorsmans is well known for their tripod legs, heads, window mounts and other outdoor gear. At the 2017 Sheep Show, I had the opportunity to get my hands on the Outdoorsmans Pan Head. I was very impressed with it and arranged for a Rokslide review.
KDC Ultralight SnipePod & Granite Peak Tripod Review
By Jared Bloomgren, Rokslide Staff
As a backcountry hunter who tries to be as much of a minimalist as possible, I am always looking for ways to shave weight when I can. There are many products in the outdoor industry that can help but not all are practical or deliver as promised. When Rokslide contacted me to test a Kramer Designs Corporations's (KDC) V2 SnipePod, I was a bit hesitant. KDC tripod and bipod system weights are measured in ounces, not pounds, and I wondered if products this lightweight could really deliver in the field?
