Being a shoe geek, a techie, and a dad that loves to take his family out backpacking, there was definitely a lot to see at OR this year. Considering that this was my first year attending, and the biggest show ever, I found the whole experienced mind blowing. I have a new respect for Will and Janet, who skillfully scour the hundreds of booths sifting through crap to surface the true gems for the lightweight backpacking community.
To keep things manageable on my first foray, I decided to cover the three areas that I am most familiar with: minimalist footwear, technical watches, and family/kids gear.
- Technical Watches
- Minimalist Footwear
- Family Backpacking Gear
