When something is honestly announced as "OI News" you should pay attention. OI = Outdoor Industry or Industries

So "OI News" does mean what you might call "puff pieces".
UKC has been very clear and honest about this from the outset.

Exactly, I don't mind obvious press-releases like this one really. UKC still has to pay the bills if we want to be able to use it for free, and it's very clear from the outset that it's an advertising feature.

And at least some of the photos are quite impressive, even if the prose leaves a little to be desired.
