Masab Jamal – Founder & Editor

I’m the founder and owner of this blog. My passion for camping and outdoor life goes back to my early childhood days. And this blog is the outcome of all the experiences that I’ve gained through these years.

Apart from camping and exploring untrodden paths, I’m a full-time blogger.

I believe the content on this blog will enhance your knowledge and provide you with the best value.

History of Call of Outdoors

Our story begins with a group of friends who share a love of nature and adventure. We spent countless weekends hiking through rugged terrain, camping under the stars, and exploring the beauty of the natural world. We were constantly amazed by the stunning landscapes and the sense of freedom and peace that came with being surrounded by nature.

Over time, we realized that our passion for the outdoors was something that we wanted to share with others. We wanted to inspire people to step outside, explore the world around them, and experience the joy and wonder of nature. And so, the Call of Outdoors was born.

Through our blog, we hope to provide a platform for all outdoor enthusiasts to come together and share their love for nature. We want to inspire people to explore new places, try new activities, and push themselves to new heights.

We Make Trustworthy Reviews for You

We believe in providing honest, reliable reviews that you can depend on when making purchasing decisions. That’s why we use a rigorous process based on independent testing and real-world experience.

Here’s what sets us apart:

  • We pick the leading products: We select top contenders in each category, ensuring you get a comprehensive comparison.
  • No freebies, no bias: We purchase all products ourselves at retail price, just like you. This ensures complete objectivity and independence in our ratings. We refuse free samples or paid endorsements from manufacturers.
  • In-depth testing: Our experts put the top products through rigorous side-by-side testing, both in controlled lab environments and in real-world scenarios. We carefully assess performance, user-friendliness, and reliability.
  • Clear rankings and explanations: We rank the products based on our findings and provide clear explanations for our choices. We also award recognition to the best performers in each category.
  • Long-term commitment: We invest in keeping many of the products we test for future reference and calibration in subsequent reviews. The rest are sold responsibly.

Testing of Products

At Call of Outdoors, we understand the importance of fair and reliable product comparisons. That’s why we utilize a comprehensive testing methodology that combines both objective lab tests and extensive real-world field evaluations.

Our Approach:

  • Quantifying the Difference: We develop a unique set of lab tests for each product category, allowing us to measure and compare key performance metrics objectively. This provides a solid foundation for our scoring.
  • Real-World Performance: We conduct in-depth field tests designed by outdoor experts. These tests put products through challenging real-world situations, revealing their true capabilities and pinpointing key performance differences.
  • Combining the Best of Both Worlds: We combine the data from our lab tests with insights from field evaluations to create a comprehensive picture of each product’s performance. This helps us accurately compare products and determine their strengths and weaknesses.
