We sent a half-dozen editors and reporters to cover the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City this week. Thousands of brands displayed new gear for 2015. The equipment below, part I of our “Best In Show” award series, represents some of the most unique and innovative items you’ll see on the shelves at outdoor shops around the U.S. next year.
Congrats to all the winners! These products are the state of the art in outdoors equipment and gear design today.
