Featured in Gear Junkie‘s “Greatest Gear for 2015: ‘Best in Show’ at Outdoor Retailer” “The twice-annual Outdoor Retailer trade show, held last week in Utah, is a mecca of gear. We sent our crew of editors and reporters to cover the show and snoop out the best to-be-released products for 2015 and beyond. The equipment here, part I of our “Best In Show” award series, represents some of the most unique and innovative items you’ll see on the shelves at outdoor shops around the U.S. later this year. …Sub-7oz.

Triple-stitched seams on the quick drying, sparkly nylon Disconium make for a rugged build. For portability, it comes with an attached stuff sack.                             The Disco Hammock is a collaboration between ENO and Betabrand and was conceived by Betabrand community manager Robbie Wiedie in conjunction with the company’s Disco Open Source Project that encourages use of the absurdly shiny material in various projects. The shiny hammock will retail for $108 when it comes to market. Currently, you...
