OR Trade Show: 2011 Teaser

The Gear Junkie crew is AWOL this week in Utah at the twice-annual Outdoor Retailer trade show, held in Salt Lake City. On the trade show floor — as well as on the ski slopes and in the backcountry at Solitude Mountain Resort — we’ll seek out the best new gear the outdoor industry has to offer. Our main pursuit will be the coolest and most innovative products for 2011 to highlight as “Best in Show” award winners. Watch for updates this week on the blog as well as Gear Junkie Facebook and Twitter. Here’s a quick visual tour and a teaser of some of the products, gadgets and gear that have caught our eye thus far. See you in Salt Lake! —Stephen Regenold

What’s the story w/ the Vibram high tops? Those look sweet. Any official name for that model?

Any knives or tools you get as samples you won’t be able to take on the plane so have them sent to me for safe keeping. Have a great time!

Oh Yeah!! When can we get our hands on those lace up vibrams!! Just bought a pair of the classics in wool while in Chicago. Only place I could find them. Also have the Bikila, KSO, and Treks. LOVE them!Have met travelers on plane wearing them.Fit in your carry on and take up almost no space.Maybe they will get easier to get now that they are popular?
