This gear guide is different

We know how important gear is for our outdoor pursuits. We also know gear is not created equally, and when you find what’s good, you stick with it.

That’s why we put together a guide of the gear that impressed us in our testing and recommendations from you—our community—of what you unfailingly put in your pack season after season.

It might be a little unconventional to feature gear that’s been around for a while. We know. But we don’t care.

What we care about is letting women know not only what we’ve got our eye on that’s new, but also what’s tried and true. These pieces of gear are like old friends: they always have our backs. We do it for the experienced woman who’s looking to expand her quiver and for the woman who is just getting into the game and needs to build out a solid foundation.

Oh, and we’ve also researched reputable stores to help you find it online. Yes, we do receive a kickback on some of the links included. But each piece of gear has to pass your reviews and our testing first and foremost.

Like great gear, here at OWA, we’ve got your back.
