ORSM – Cairn Trail from Bedrock Sandals

Saturday, August 6th, 2016

The Cairn Trail sandal from Bedrock Sandals is gaining a lot of interest.

They are a simple, lightweight alternative for those who prefer sandals in the outdoors.

Over the course of my few days at OR, I noticed several people wearing them and across the board, they all raved about the comfort.

Here is a shot of the adjustment system which works in conjunction with an adjustable buckle on the opposite side to make them easier to don and doff.

The Carin Trail exclusively features the sticky Regolith Vibram sole.

Bedrock Sandals are a made in the USA and are guaranteed for the life of the Vibram soles. If the sole or straps break during that time, they will repair or replace them for free.

ORSM – Klymit Hammock V

Saturday, August 6th, 2016

Although it might seem counterintuitive, adding a sleeping pad to a hammock has merit. For instance, it’s cold outside, or you’ve got the lumbago and need a little extra support. Another reason might be that you want a little more structure for your hammock. No matter the reason, Klymit has the answer with a model designed specifically for use in a hammock.

Here, we see Recoil’s Rob Curtis checking out the Hammock V.

ORSM – Eagle Nest Outfitter Billow

Saturday, August 6th, 2016

If there was an industry trend at this Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, it was these inflatable loungers. They were everywhere. Referred to by a number of names including inflatable hammocks, it’s no wonder that Eagle Nest Outfitter would offer the snazziest model. This is the Billow Air Lounge.

Made from a low porosity material, you inflate the Billow via a baffie system and then use the roll top closure to trap the air. Eventually, it’s going to lose air so for long-term use, you’ll find yourself refilling it every few hours.

Offered in a variety of color combos.

ORSM – NEMO Equipment Cloudview Hammock

Friday, August 5th, 2016

Hammocks are all the rage but these days you’re either getting a lightweight fabric hammock that swallows you as soon as you get in or a large net hammock that you’d find in grandma’s backyard. NEMO set about to make something in between.

Right from the get go, you’ll notice the design. It’s got a deep foot pocket so that when you get in, your feet don’t end up higher than your head. Additionally, the material won’t absorb water and the hammock comes with spreader bars to keep its shape. It’s topped off with an iPad pocket and beverage holder.

ORSM – MSR Trailshot Water Filter

Friday, August 5th, 2016

Cascade Designs brand MSR, showed the Trailshot Water Filter at this week’s ORSM. At $49 it is an amazing bargain for a personal water filter which can be used to drink directly from the source or to fill containers. It’s very simple to use; drop the 15″ prefilter end into the water source and then squeeze the device to pump the water through the filter. Although, it’s important to note that the Trailshot filters bacteria and protozoa to NSF Protocol P231, but not viruses.

The Trailshot is only 5.4oz and you can fill up a 1 liter bottle in just 60 seconds with up to 2,000 liters over the filter’s lifetime. It’s cleanable in the field of it gets gunned up with a few shakes or a rinse in potable water. Coming January, 2017.

ORSM – Slumberjack Roadhouse Tarp

Friday, August 5th, 2016

One of Sumberjack’s new priducts for OR Summer Market is so big, they couldn’t actually set it up in the booth but rather had to rely on a large billboard along the side of their booth. The Roadhouse Tarp was designed to be used in conjunction with a vehicle for overland camping use.

The Roadhouse Tarp will come with two beefy steel poles and can be set up alone lean-to or ridge tent-styles or connected off the back of a vehicle with two poles for a wider top or single pole for a more pronounced ridge.  It is equipped with a ratchet attachment system to connect to various points on the vehicle included the wheel.  I know one of you will say it, so I’ll save you the embarrassment; no, it’s not meant to be driven with the tarp attached to a wheel.  

Coming Spring 2017.
