Frank Wacker

Motor Presse Stuttgart

Equipment Editor for The Outdoor, the leading german hiking- and backpacking publication.


Favorite outdoor activities
Multli-day trips with tent (backpacking) during all for seasons, day-hikes on and off trail through out the gear – and all the time testing gear while being out.

What’s your main contribution of being in the Jury do you think?
I have more than 25 years of experience in testing and comparing outdoor gear, within in industry I am known to be one of the best testers worldwide – and although I am gear freak I understand the needs of “normal” hikers and backpackers.
