At the New York Herald® we pride ourselves on publishing independent gear and product reviews that put our readers first, and high-quality content on next level style, design, gear and tech will always be our first priority. Every product or service featured in our editorial coverage has been picked by either our editors or our team of freelance testers.
That said, when you purchase a product through a link on our website, we reserve the right to occasionally earn an affiliate commission. This is now a common media practice used by many notable sites, including the New York Times through their Wirecutter and Sweet Home websites, Uncrate and Gear Patrol.
Here’s how it works: When you click a link on one of our pages that goes to an affiliate retailer, the URL automatically notes that you came from nyherald.com. If you purchase that product, we may earn a small commission that helps pay for our work. (It doesn’t cost you more—the price is the same as if you went directly to the site.) Our editors carefully choose both the products we link to and the retailers that sell them (trusted companies like Northface and Amazon)to offer you competitive prices and a smooth shopping experience. Affiliate links do not factor into our editorial coverage other than to make it easier for you, our readers, to get the gear you want at a great price (although we cannot guarantee it will always be the best deal available).
If a manufacturer or retailer has paid for any editorial placement on our website, it is noted clearly with a Sponsored tag.
Our reputation with our readers is the most valuable asset we possess. We will continue to review and discuss products honestly and independently with one simple goal: to help you discover what’s next in Style, Design, Gear and Tech.
