Eye Candy For The Gear Junkie

The Outdoor Retailer show was in full swing this year. It is an biannual show that happens in Salt Lake City which showcases the new products from Outdoor Industry companies for the next summer or winter season. It is the eye candy place to be for any outdoor gear enthusiast. Serious sensory overload!!!
It’s great to be able to see the new gear, trends, and related products but bad because you know that your gear “needs” just went up four fold. The show has a unique feel and always a buzz of excitement and activity. One of the best parts of each show includes the on snow demo and the on water demo. We get to test out the latest gear that will instituted in the Summer or Fall lineups of the companies.
This year, I saw a lot of great products and some of the highlights were Black Diamond, Petzl, Arcteryx, and Marmot. Tubbs snowshoe company is also looking to place themselves well in the market with their Flex ALP series.
If you ever have a chance to catch this show, go for it.
