Frank Wacker was already keenly interested in outdoor equipment as a child – today, everything he does professionally has something to do with functional equipment. First employed in outdoor retail, he was involved in product development for the outdoor industry. In 1994, Wacker began testing equipment for Outdoor, a magazine published by Motor Presse Stuttgart/Germany – and has been a full-time member of the editorial team since 2003. Industry insiders consider him to be one of the world’s best product testers. (July 2013)
