The annual Outdoor Retailer summer show is almost upon us, and that means tons and tons of great gear to look forward too for our festival and outdoor adventures in the seasons to come.
As we start to get closer to the show we will be dropping as many previews as we can along with our new summer festival / outdoor gear guide featuring brands like Topo Design, GoLite, Sunski, Hex Backpacks and many more great brands perfect for your warm weather adventures.
The environment and sustainability have been important issues for all of us, and it's exciting to see a big trend with outdoor brands to use sustainable and recycled materials AND for festival campers becoming more aware and pro active. Here are some cool products in the gear pipeline at OR 2019 that we are looking forward to checking out.
