Outdoor Gear Companies are Green, Mean, and Creating a Scene at Outdoor Reatailer Winter Market 2010

The team was in Salt Lake City, Utah, last week at the Outdoor Retailer (OR) Winter Market. It was a great chance to see all of the great outdoor gear and apparel brands under one roof.

Companies like GoLite and Crescent Moon are leading a lot of great activity across the industry on the “Green” front…. Leaders like Zamberlan, Big Agnes, Sierra Designs, Primus, and St. Moritz are staying strong… exciting new products like Nemo tents and Selk Bag sleep-wear systems are breathing new life into the outdoor gear category... and kid-friendly products like Deuter's Kid Comfort series and Julbo's sunglasses and goggles for kids are helping us all usher in a whole new generation of outdoor enthusiasts.

We return inspired to put a lot of great new products up on in time for the spring outdoor season. Please keep checking back here and on the site for more on these exciting companies and trends! And above all start making your plans to GET OUTSIDE!

  1. Great job on the blog Maureen! You really captured our desire to help drive green innovation and child outreach within the industry. I can't wait to see what new award winning "best" products you'll be putting on the website. Will you start with Go Lite? Deuter? or Nemos' cool pole-less tents?
