I’ve introduced an image-based navigation feature on SectionHiker, called Gear Navigators, that’s designed to save you a lot of time searching for products, their weights, and features. These Gear Navigators are optimized for desktops and mobile devices, where you don’t want to spend a lot of time searching in Google or clicking through web pages.
The first two Gear Navigators available are for:
- Lightweight Backpacks (weighing 3 pounds or less)
- Lightweight Tents and Tarp Shelters (weighing 3 pounds or less and include an inner tent)
With more Gear Navigators in the pipeline!
Each Gear Navigator lists images of all of the products available today in a category (including large and small gear makers), so you can see all of at once and hyperlink directly to them.
When you move your mouse or you finger over a product’s picture, its name will appear on your device in a small popup. Click on the picture and you’ll be linked to the manufacturer’s product page with the latest specs and price information.
All of these image-based gear navigators are listed under the Gear Navigator Menu item on the SectionHiker.com home page and on the pull-down menu on mobile devices.
