Teton Sports is a outdoor gear company located in Utah, that I have admired for quite sometime. They along with American Backcountry (another great and innovative outdoor retailer - might I add!) co-founded the weekly twitter chat for hikers (#hikerchat) on Fridays at 12pm ET. Engaging in #hikerchat has afforded me a wider understanding of new and evolving hiker and outdoor issues and programs as well as making a ton of hiker friends around the country. Teton is on the brink or releasing some amazing new gear that I can't wait to try and share. Getting outdoors is something that has become something of a motto and a calling for Teton. Teton wants us all to get outdoors and enjoy everything the outdoors has to offer. To promote this mindset Teton and other brand ambassadors will be using the #getoutdoors hash-tag to promote ways we call all get outdoors.
Potable Aqua, based out of Wisconsin, does what you would expect. They give you clean, pure and drinkable water. A steadfast solution for hikers and for those in need of water in emergency situations for years.Potable Aqua is currently in the process of bringing a new filter to market. Their new Potable Aqua PURE™ Electrolytic Water Purifier was recently named by Outside Magazine's as one of the top seven water filtration systems on the market (was listed as #3). Being from the midwest myself, I am pleased to represent a company from just down the road (a ways).
So, in short, please stay tuned here to Hiking Forward for information about these innovative companies and the wonderful products that they make.
