Gear Guy Carl Roe is a pas­sion­ate out­doors en­thu­si­ast who has been in­volved in the out­door in­dus­try for over 15 years, both in re­tail (NZ, Aus­tralia and Canada) and whole­sale (NZ and Aus­tralia). An ac­tive tram­per and for­mer guide, he has walked the 4,300km Pa­cific Crest Trail from Canada to Mex­ico and trekked all over New Zealand and Aus­tralia. For his hon­ey­moon Carl com­pleted a 7,300km walk from Swedish La­p­land to An­dalu­cia in Spain, a spon­sored ad­ven­ture that in­volved test­ing prod­uct pro­to­types for equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ers. Al­though his main pas­sion is walk­ing, Carl also pad­dles, climbs and moun­tain bikes as of­ten as pos­si­ble. Carl is a self­con­fessed gear junkie and is pas­sion­ate about ed­u­cat­ing buy­ers so that they avoid the pit­falls and se­lect the prod­uct that best matches their needs and bud­get. Cur­rently Carl works as a free­lance ad­ven­ture writer and prod­uct reviewer in be­tween pub­lish­ing the Aus­tralian Ad­ven­ture Gear Guide.?
