When you need to buy anything optical related…hundreds of brands, thousands of products, and an array of great options…you need to have done your homework before making a purchase. There are so many optical equipment vendors on the market today and so many different scopes out there.
Gear Odds was started by a team of outdoor enthusiasts. Our mission here is to help you make the right decision when looking for the proper visual aid for your outdoor passions, whether you’re a birdwatcher or a hunter, by ensuring that you have done your homework before making a purchase.
Gear Odds provides quality advice and selection on optics with an industry-leading return policy. We are knowledgeable of today’s top brands, models, and features to help you find the right scope for your next outdoor excursion.
The Right Product for the Job: We understand that hunting and birding isn’t about the gear. It’s about the experience. But it’s important to find the right equipment, so you can enjoy that experience with greater comfort and convenience. That’s why we scour the market to ensure we are only recommending gear that is durable, reliable and high-performing. And when we do recommend a product, you can rely on us to take care of all of the behind-the-scenes research and product testing so you don’t have to.
Our educational articles are written and edited by persons who are experts in their fields. We don’t claim to be experts on all facets of each subject, but we bring you experts – many with advanced degrees – who can help you make your next purchase decision.
We feel “Educating” and letting people know the difference between finding the “best” product on the market and finding the “right” product is our best path for success.

- This is another way of saying "investigate", of course, but we're constantly on the lookout for the most excellent items available and comprehending the most recent trends in the realms of optics and birding. In this way, we are able to hand-select items to review and topics to cover.
- We aspire to have as many of these products ourselves, getting a sense for them in real-world conditions, so our expertise is founded on experience. We do as much personal testing as possible, but we can't try out every single product. It's something we're looking to improve.
- When we're unable to physically possess a product, we instead seek the feedback of other users. We scour customer reviews on Amazon and various other websites, looking for patterns and trying to discern the collective opinion. "What are other users saying?" Oftentimes, these reviews can highlight problems that our team would've otherwise been unaware of.
- We have a large network of friends and colleagues in the optics industry that we frequently consult to ensure that our information is both accurate and our recommendations are sound. Expert advice is critical in the over-populated world of optical equipment. Our selection process is valid when we’re confident in the opinions of experts.
Should I trust online?
There are various optic websites available, however, many of them cannot be trusted to provide accurate information. Trusted sites will ensure that the products being promoted are thoroughly researched and will meet your specific needs. These sites will have experts available that you can consult when necessary.
