No question that this is the finest magazine with the name 'ARBCLIMBER' ever produced. I feel privileged to be able to buy it. 



GEAR REVIEWS are a warts'n'all, in- depth look at a product, from hardware and harnesses to chainsaws and PPE. Often irreverent but technically detailed.

MARKET GUIDES are complete listings of an entire range of equipment with a detailed introduction followed by tabulated data. Up to issue 10 we have covered Harnesses, Helmets, Top-handle Chainsaws, Chainsaw boots, Ropes and Mechanical prusiks.

MAINTENANCE. mostly chainsaw maintenance but other equipment including new technology like powered ascenders crops up as well.

SPOTLIGHT. Similar to a review with the same level of detail but usually a product we haven't had for long enough to be a full review or is too expensive for the manufacturer to trust us with for long.

TECHNIQUES from rigging and rope skills to chainsaw cutting/safety and rescue.

FIRST AID & RESCUE is a primary part of our editorial for such a dangerous occupation
