Day One at Outdoor Retailer, the Open Air Demo day, was my kind of day. Great weather, great people, great toys... and plenty of boats to test paddle! There wasn't exactly a plethora of ultralight backpacking gear, but we definitely found some interesting and relevant things to share with you (the kayak test-paddling I guess I'll have to write off as fun background information).
