About Best of the Best
Each year the editors at Field & Stream review new products and innovations and choose the top performing items for inclusion in the annual Best of the Best round-up. Field & Stream test-team members rigorously test each item during a process dubbed the “Field & Stream Torture Tests.” Products are shot, bent, driven, dropped, and generally abused. Anything that falters is immediately eliminated. Beyond surviving the torture tests, winning products are ultimately selected based on significance of the innovation, the quality of the design, and the value they bring to outdoorsmen. Selection criteria varies, depending upon the category, but all of the winning products share one characteristic: excellence in their field.
