I am not Jason, but having read his posts, Jason is very honest and upfront about whom he works for -- and just as importantly, he is pretty careful to distinguish between speaking as a company rep versus a regular gear freak (like the rest of us).

If you click on Jason's handle, you will see the following under his occupation:

"Traveling Outdoor Industry Sales Rep (Cascade Designs, Princeton Tec, Granite Gear, ACR, ProBar, Westcomb Outerwear)"
