What’s your main contribution of being in the Jury do you think?
I am an 100% independent outdoor gear and bike journalist/reviewer/blogger and next to Youtube is my main channel. I look at products from a consumer’s point of view without forgetting that the gear needs to be produced for a certain price. I always take sustainability into my judgment. And sustainable can mean longevity instead of a total environmental friendly production. When I say I am independent I mean 100% INDEPENDENT. I am not payed for what I do and I don’t have affiliate deals. I don’t have advertisements on my website and I don’t sell anything.

Walking, Swimming, Camping. Exploring mountains, beaches, parks and forgotten urban green places…

What’s your main contribution of being in the Jury do you think?
I sell great kit in East London to customers who want to be outdoors more and look after the planet. Through all our work we try to appeal not just to the experienced explorers, but to everyone. How can the products entice more people outdoors? And how are they looking after the planet in doing so?

Company: Utemagasinet
Title: Editor in chief
Country: Sweden

Favorite outdoor activities
Hiking, kayaking, XC-skiing, skitouring, iceskating … and chilling, eating, drinking ?

What’s your main contribution of being in the Jury do you think?
I have 25 years of personal experience of all year outdoor life, and a love for outdoor gear and clothing. In my profession I deal with the readers of Utemagasinet, Sweden’s leading Outdoor and Adventure Magazine, who buy more sports- and outdoor gear than any other magazine subscribers in our country. They are really picky and want to know Why? Who? How? When? before they buy anything. Our job is to guide them in the gear jungle, and I believe that I work for them in this jury too..
