Site Advertising and Affiliate Programs:

Man Makes Fire participates in advertising programs that deliver display and text-based ads to this site, in addition to some carefully selected affiliate marketing programs from organizations and merchants that we believe can deliver a great consumer buying experience to our readers.

Required Man Makes Fire affiliate disclosures:

  • Man Makes Fire is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
  • Man Makes Fire is a participant in the L.L.Bean affiliate program.
  • In affiliation with The Orvis Company, Inc.: “The Orvis Company, Inc. is pleased to have Man Makes Fire as a member of the Orvis Affiliate Network.

Reviews and Gear References Disclosure:

In addition to Man Makes Fire buying gear for reviews and guides, gear manufacturers occasionally ship gear samples to Man Makes Fire. If we like it, we spend some quality time with the gear and review it. Sometimes we give it away, return it, or hang on to it for long-term review follow-up coverage.

We do not accept any gear in exchange for coverage. If we do not truly appreciate the gear, we don’t write about it at all — bad gear will fade into obscurity on its own if everyone ignores it. In addition, we focus on gear from reputable companies, reputable brands, and reputable retailers that we trust.

The gear links on Man Makes Fire are focused on what we are willing to recommend to our own family and friends. Many of our specific gear links connect to industry-standard affiliate advertising programs.

Basically, we deliver the advice and insight you need, you get the gear you want, and then everyone wins. Pretty straightforward.
