We give the big outdoor brands a lot of love at Outdoor Retailer—and for good reason. Companies like Patagonia and The North Face make great products. This year, however, we also wanted to highlight the little guys. The up-and-comers.
That’s because there are more small brands in our business than ever before. This year’s OR featured a giant breakout section of small companies that was overflowing with beautiful and innovative products. We spent hours combing through the booths. These are our five favorites.
