Hey there, SOFREP family,

Listen up, it’s Guy McCardle, your friendly Managing Editor here, and I’ve got a message you definitely want to pay attention to.

We’re looking to beef up our gear review team, and we want YOU. Yes, you—the guy or gal who can’t walk past a piece of tactical gear without giving it a critical once-over. If you’ve got a sharp eye for quality, a knack for putting gear through its paces, can string together a few coherent sentences, and do a killer video review, we’re talking to you.

You don’t need to be an operator, former operator or any other type of prior service. This is all about the love of gear and being able to share that with our readers.

What’s in It for You?

  • Test and Trial the Newest Gear: We’ll help land the greatest and coolest new gear. Your mission? Put it to the test and see if it lives up to the hype.
  • Share Your Wisdom: Your reviews will be a beacon for our community. Share your insights and help others make informed decisions.
  • Join the Inner Circle: You’ll be part of an elite group of gear testers, swapping stories and tips with fellow enthusiasts.

What Do We Need From You?

  • A Gear Junkie’s Passion: Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a seasoned pro, your love for gear is what counts.
  • Honest, No-Nonsense Reviews: We want the real deal – no fluff, no filler—just your honest take on how the gear stacks up.
  • Commitment to the Cause: Regular, timely reviews are what we’re after. We need folks who are in it for the long haul.

And, For One Lucky individual…

Glad you read this far because we’re offering one talented, ambitious gearhead the opportunity of a lifetime. The powers that be at SOFREP are looking for an editor to build Loadout Room into the premier gear review destination on the internet. You need the vision, drive, and devotion to be the ringleader for the content of our gear circus. Quitters need not apply. You’ll be working directly with me and Loadout Room Editor at Large, gear reviewer extraordinaire Garfield to take our site to the next level and beyond. This rewarding challenge is not for the faint-hearted.

Ready to Step Up?

Shoot me an email at [email protected] with a bit about yourself, any gear review experience you’ve got (don’t sweat it if you’re new to this), and why you’re the perfect fit for our crew.

This isn’t just about free gear – it’s about being a vital part of a community that values the real deal when it comes to equipment. If you’ve ever wanted to have a say in what your fellow gearheads are using, now’s your chance.

Let’s do this. Send in your applications, and let’s start this journey together. I can’t wait to see what you’ve got. Dazzle me.

Stay sharp,
