Editorial & Disclosure Policy

At Territory Supply, our goal is to help readers find their next weekend adventure.

Editorial Policy & Guidelines

At Territory Supply, our goal is to help our readers get out on the weekend and find their best adventures. We do this in a number of ways including gear recommendations, lodging recommendations, how-to guidance, and overall trip planning inspiration. 

Ultimately, we want you to make the best decisions for your next adventure — and we can only help you do that when we know what we’re talking about. That’s why our process is simple: we work with experienced and knowledgeable writers who have been there, done that, and likely went back another time or two. Each story we publish has hours of research, writing, fact-checking and editing behind it. And each article is reviewed by our editors, Heather Balogh Rochfort and Keith Langston.

Long story short: you won’t find any fake or regurgitated content here. These are recommendations from real people who really do these things — like yourself.

Product Review & Roundups: How They Work

Gear reviews at Territory Supply are an ever-changing process. But as of September 2023 when we moved over to a new editorial team, this is how they work throughout the site.

First, we only work with writers who are experienced and knowledgeable in the category. If you’re reading a review of travel shorts, we can promise that the writer knows and enjoys backpacking. Then, we’re committed to testing the actual product. You won’t find reviews that come from aggregated online information — not our style.

Instead, we write our product reviews and roundups based on hands-on testing. We request samples from the various PR agencies and in some cases, we buy the testing samples ourselves. Every printed thought and opinion comes from this testing, and not from other reviews online or third-party information.

We do not accept guest posts or link insertions. If a brand or product pays us to write an article, it will be clearly marked as “sponsored content.”

Lodging Reviews & Roundups: How They Work

As with gear reviews, accommodation recommendations change as hotels and cabins close their doors and new ones take their place. We strive to keep our content as updated as possible within these parameters. Our writers either frequently travel to the chosen destination or live in the area, so we promise that you’re getting boots-on-the-ground tips and guidance.

If we write a standalone review (like this one) of an accommodation including a hotel, cabin, yurt, or other glamping destination, we can promise that we’ve stayed there ourselves. More often than not, the photos you see in the review are the ones we took during our experience there. 

For lodging roundups, we strive to include only locations that we have visited ourselves. In some instances, we may include a few locations based on deep research and personal knowledge of the area. 

Affiliate Links 

As with most sites on the internet, we do use affiliate links. This means we may earn a small commission if you click through and make a purchase.

However, affiliate partnerships do not affect inclusion in our reviews and stories. If a brand does not have an affiliate account but tests well, we will 100% still include them. Our priority is always providing the best, high-quality content to help you get out and adventure more.
