The Gear Deals channel is offered as a service to BPL members.
It allows for announcements by vendors subject to certain conditions:
- Items MUST be relevant to light-weight backpacking and BPL
- Commercial postings require full disclosure of affiliation
- Such postings must represent a DEAL for BPL members, in the form of a discount or coupon which is UNIQUE to BPL members, not just available to anyone via a web site or where-ever.
- Kickstarter announcements do not include a BPL-specific DEAL and do not qualify for listing.
On the other hand, if you are reporting on what could be a good deal you have seen somewhere else, not connected in any way to you, that is usually OK.
We reserve the right to delete unacceptable postings.
