Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2010: Open Air Demo
While the first day of Outdoor Retailer is dedicated to water sport, we found a few products that could carry over for backpacking as well... plus some that are just plain fun, no bones about it!
By Backpacking Light
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).
Sand Socks, Inc. Grip Socks
Point 6 Socks
