You may have noticed a few weeks ago we closed up shop and headed over to Germany with the EDPNC (Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina)  for one of the largest outdoor market trade shows worldwide: The OutDoor Friedrichshafen. The show attracts more than 900 exhibitors and 20,000 visitors from over 40 countries!  It was a brand new experience for us, and while we were on a hunt to find international distributers, we did get a few moments to look around.  Here is our round up:

What to take on the Colorado Trail

Next week I'm taking off for a wonderful 5 weeks of hiking the Colorado Trail. This is my second time on this trail, and here's a little sneak peek of what's in my pack  (spoiler alert: there is a LightHeart Gear tent :-)). Currently, our total pack weighs just 20lb. Let's go!

Ultimate Bike Packing Giveaway!

Summer is in full force, and so are bike packing adventures! To help get you the most out of your free weekends, we've teamed up with Reflekt Unsinkable, Gregory, Honey Stinger, Burley Designs and Surly Bikes to offer the Ultimate Bike Packing Giveaway!

Everyone dreads the thought of closing the zipper on their tent, only to have it separate behind the slider and gape back open. In a rainstorm, or heavy mosquito infested area, this can make life more than miserable. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to fix this in the field.

I have been preparing my own backpacking food for the past 10 years.  Whether you’re going out for two, or 200 nights, you’ve got to eat. Especially when you’re pumping out 10-12+ hour days, hauling a pack on your back.  As the miles stretch on, food often sits in the forefront of your mind.   Unfortunately, choices for food on the trail can be limited. There are options though. Options you can do yourself at home with a little prep and a little dehydration. Meals can come to life at any campsite with just a bit of boiling water. Once you  start dehydrating your own meals, you’ll never want to settle for store bought backpacking meals again!
