Gear reviewers have the life. Seriously. How many other paying jobs could you get away with telling your spouse that you have to spend the week in Moab or Fiji or Australia or 24-hour racing or climbing or running week after week after week so that you can provide your objective opinion on the latest and greatest the outdoor industry has to offer.
Stephen Regenold, The Gear Junkie,Â gets after it more than most. He is constantly in action and on the move. Located in Minneapolis, he brings a level-headedness and midwesterner’s sensibility to his reviews. And his endless energy and outdoor pursuits has earned him a nationally-syndicated newspaper column, an active web site, and a guest column on Outside Magazine’s gear blog.
Stephen has the credibility.
So it is extra sweet that he has chosen the Princeton Tec Swerve tailight as one of his top 10 Gear of the Year winners.
“It costs twice what a regular rear red blinker bike light goes at. But the $30 Swerve, which has two bright L.E.D.s, can almost guarantee you’ll be seen from behind. I trusted this little light literally with my life during city commutes and nighttime bike rides all year long.”
