Are the swim equipment reviews on sponsored or unbiased?

All of the reviews and testing of swim equipment on are done from our unfiltered point of view.

This doesn’t always get us a lot of love from swim brands (we’ve had two brands cancel affiliate partnerships with us because they didn’t like our reviews) but we are vocal about the equipment we like.

We receive commissions from certain partners, including Amazon (see our Amazon Associates disclosure here) and SwimOutlet, at no additional cost to you, but we do not solicit the input of brands when reviewing swim and pool gear.  

The stuff that we test, review, and recommend are the same swim gear and equipment that you’ll find in our swim bag and pool-side.
