October 29, 2020





GoWild™ Releases the Hot 25, a List of Hunting Products Trending Atop Millions of Searches

Outdoorsmen and women want gear that’s proven to be as tough as them. GoWild, the social media platform for outdoor enthusiasts, is making that search a little easier with its new Hot 25. 

GoWild’s ecommerce feature, Gearbox, has more than 350K products available for social sharing, reviews and purchases. Across the millions of searches and impressions on the platform, GoWild has released the Hot 25, a list of the 25 most popular products sportsmen and women are putting to the test in 2020. 

The average Gearbox shopper looks at more than 200+ products a month. Beyond searching, GoWild members share the gear that helped them prepare and cook the perfect wild game or backcountry snacks. All of this data from hundreds of thousands of people, millions of search impressions and a year of social shopping helped GoWild name the top 25 outdoor cooking products of the year with the Hot 25.
