New Year Giveaway! Welcome 2013 with outdoor gear

Update 01/04/13: Thanks to all who participated in our “New Year Giveaway” contest. The winner, James Demetriou, gets our chosen β€œTop Gear of 2012” product, the electricity-producing PowerPot camp pot. Said Demetriou in his post:

“As a professional river guide, I look for new gear to make my customers’ experience just that much better. Anything to boost moral on a dreary night during a two-week float trip is great. As a guide, it is my responsibility to cook and provide sustenance to my customers and make them feel as comfortable as possible. The last few nights of a two-week trip can be rough. I would have to say the PowerPot cook pot would get my vote for the best gear on this list and what I want most for my clients on the river.”

Congrats to James, and thanks to all who entered!
