I’m devoted to offering high-integrity recommendations of the toughest and highest-quality products even if I don’t get a dime for it (which is very often the case.)
Occasionally if you click a link to a product I recommend and decide to purchase it I may earn a small commission (at no extra cost to you.)
This allows me to buy a bologna sandwich and eat it…thank you very much.
Honest bloggers can’t live on bologna sandwiches forever. I hope one day to upgrade to spam.
Kidding aside, this blog actually helps fund my full-time non-profit work.
How I Pay For My Bologna Sandwiches:
I’m extremely picky about the brands and products I recommend here. That’s why I am not loyal to any brand.
Many of the products and brands I trust are scattered across a number of affiliate networks and since I’m recommending them anyway, I figure I might as well earn a baloney sandwich while I’m at.
These are the affiliate networks I work with and the brands. You might also say, this is the short list of brands I trust who are still making top quality products that last.
These guys know quality! If you love EDC stuff every single thing they carry is hand-picked and world-class. I highly recommend browsing their site.

Avantlink is partnered with some very high-quality brands with a mutual dedication to durability. It has been a hand in glove fit for WellRigged.com. They do not work with fly-by-night spammy bloggers with low traffic and junky content.
I often encourage smaller high-quality companies I interact with to consider using Avantlink to partner with reputable influencers(like WellRigged.com.) It helps hardworking businesses get well-deserved exposure.
Here are the brands I recommend as an affiliate with Avantlink:
- Chrome Industries
- Darn Tough Socks
- Feetures Socks
- KEEN Footwear
- Mystery Ranch Backpacks
- Outdoor Research
- Pelican Products
- Unbound Merino
CJ Affiliates is a huge affiliate network but I only work with a few particular high-quality brands from their network. These Are:
Sovrn//Commerce (Formerly Viglink)
I use Viglink occasionally to “plug a hole” when a quality brand that I love has no apparent affiliate program. Sovrn often has deals with these brands that no-one else does but usually offers lower commissions. Hey, its something.
WellRigged.com is a participant in the GoAffPro Affiliate Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to the partner site.
ACEBEAM makes some of the most powerful flashlights in the world. As many of you know I’m a big fan of their quality and high performance.
