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 baloney sandwich and eat it…thank you very much.

Honest bloggers can’t live on baloney sandwiches forever. I hope one day to upgrade to spam.

Kidding aside, I’m devoted to recommending the toughest and highest-quality products out there. In fact, I don’t get a dime for the majority of my recommendations (although I wouldn’t mind if I could).

How I Pay For My Baloney Sandwiches:

I’m extremely picky about the brands and products I recommend. Many of them are scattered across a number of affiliate networks. Some of brands and products I recommend also offer affiliate commissions. Since I’m recommending them anyway, why not earn a baloney sandwich while I’m at it right?

These are the affiliate networks I work with and the brands.


As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.


I partnered with ShareaSale Network because they happened to work with a few brands I trust:

  • Pad & Quill
  • Saddleback Leather


Avantlink is partnered with some of the legendary brands that I had already been promoting for a couple of years. So it made sense to go ahead and hook up with Avantlink, these are the brands I recommend through Avantlink:

  • Patagonia
  • Darn Tough Socks
  • Mystery Ranch Backpacks
  • Filson

CJ Affiliates

CJ Affiliates is huge but I only joined because a few high-quality brands I feel are worth recommending. These Are:

  • Mountain Hardwear
  • Hammacher Schlemmer
  • Carhartt

Sovrn//Commerce (Formerly Viglink)

I use Viglink occasionally to “plug a hole” with quality brands that I love but have no apparent affiliate programs. Sovrn often has deals with these brands that no-one else does but usually offer lower commissions.

  • Wolverine
  • Tilley Endurables
