Thither, formerly The Travel Gear Reviews, was founded by Jonathan Looi in 2013 originally as a way to document his travel experiences and review the few items he packed for his 2-year-long round the world journey. Since then, Thither has grown to become authority in the travel gear industry.
Currently, Thither consistently garners highly targeted visitors looking for reviews and to purchase travel gear. Our overall audience and reader engagement is growing steadily. We serve a unique group of readers that are interested in travel, travel gear and outdoor gear. Our readers have a proven record of purchasing items we review and recommend.
Thither.com has also worked with some of the largest brands in the world, including Timberland, Keen, Tempur-Pedic and more.
Email us if you’re interested in taking a look at our media kit which includes more statistics regarding our reader base, screenshots of our analytics, demographics and other opportunities.
Here are some opportunities we offer:
Thither is a travel gear site that constantly publishes new reviews, so we are always open to reviewing new and exciting items to share with our readers.
Due to the number of review requests we receive, we are unable review every product pitched, but we’ll do our best to try your product if we see fit.
We review products relating to travel, but are not limited to ‘travel specific’ items. Products we review include but are not limited to luggage, backpacks and bags, outdoor gear (for adventure travel), shoes, accessories, clothing (not necessarily travel specific clothing), and gadgets/electronics.
All reviews are completely unbiased and will include our honest opinions whether positive or negative. Hopefully more positives than negatives!

Above is an example of a tweet we used to gain awareness for a luggage giveaway.
In conjunction with a product review, we also can do a giveaway of your product, creating additional awareness and buzz on our site and social media platforms.
In case we are unable to review your product, we offer sponsored posts. These posts are a great way to promote awareness of your brand or product.
Sponsored posts are subject to Thither content guidelines. They will be written by the advertiser and should be between 400-800 words long. These posts can be about your product or your business in a form that is interesting and appealing to our audience. We highly recommend you include high resolution images to further engage our audience.
Sponsored posts may include a link to the advertiser’s website. Also, we will promote your post to our combined 40,000+ followers on social media.
Note: Sponsored posts will be treated like normal articles on Thither.com, but are not reviews and will be clearly marked as sponsored posts to prevent confusion.
Have a Kickstarter or crowd funding campaign and want to get the word out? We can help.

It was a pleasure collaborating with Jonathan on a product review and social media giveaway. We received a great response from his fans, creating a buzz around our brand. Looking forward to working with him again in the near future.

Thank you so much for your great review. I really take a passion with my products and I love that you really hit the nail on the head with what I was trying to accomplish as an inventor…. Thanks again and I always enjoy reading your reviews.
Jonathan thoroughly tests all products before writing about them. When he does write, he does so professionally and accurately. This seems straightforward but is often not the case. LOWA boots is therefore proud to work with Jonathan and looks forward to doing so into the future.

I love reading your articles and honestly, your advice is not only helping me, but inspiring me.

Here at Thither.com we hold the highest standard when reviewing any product. Quality, detailed reviews take time. We put products to the test – not for days but for weeks. After thoroughly testing the gear, we then write an in-depth and unbiased review.
