    a patient expert who helped us so much
    We were preparing for a climb later this year and needed some new gear specialized for the trek (and training) we have ahead. Kate helped us put together a list of exactly what we needed over the course of a few weeks, and was patient when work and life interrupted our research and search for the right gear. Thanks so much to Kate for her help!

    "Kate was great"= understatement!
    First family backpacking trip so I had a lot of questions and Kate was a dynamo with the answers. She made me feel like I was her only customer. She even apologized about spotty internet service when I interrupted HER hike! 😂 She is on it! And she was always looking for deals for me and my fam. Need a curator? I recommend Kate Wilson.

    Customer Service With Care
    Kate did a great job of meeting me where I was at as far as my lack of knowledge in hiking gear. Despite the fact that I love hiking, I hadn't really researched beyond the gear I already own so I had a lot of questions. Anything Kate didn't know she made sure to look up and update me. She also scouted for the best deals on the site, while even updating prices as she found better deals.

    Kate listened to my needs
    I’m so grateful I stumbled upon Curated and was paired with Kate. She’s from the same region as me and asked follow-up questions to make the best recommendation for me and my growing, soon to be giant dog. I’m so excited for the adventures ahead!

    Kate is so helpful!
    Kate is so thoughtful, made the perfect Christmas card for my gift. She sent me multiple options on what I wanted to buy, all in my price range she requested from me. Was able to explain the features and differences between the products, and ultimately which one seemed the best fit for my needs. This company does a great job, it’s so helpful for those who have limited knowledge.

    Very nice
    I contacted her at 11:00 and night and we talked for about 50 minuets to help me find the best tent for me. She was very kind and very knowledgeable and helped me with everything I needed. Wonderful experience 10/10

    Bruce's experience with Kate
    Kate was good at guiding me through the purchase of my first trekking poles. She made a couple recommendations, provided technical data. When I questioned her about different features available on the different items she along with colleagues were able to provide a good evaluation alternatives. She was helpful but not pushy. I bought my products from Kate because of the time she spent working with me and pricing was competitive with other sources.

    More help than I even could have asked for!
    Kate was very helpful with her recommendations and listening to my concerns. She even adjusted her curations based on my feedback very quickly and I felt comfortable with her advice. I'm looking forward to putting some miles on my new equipment!
