SmartWool unveiled its new booth at the Outdoor Retailer show with steel cables coming out the top that we were told were supposed to resemble a loom. Cute, although we didn't see the loom stuff. All that aside, the booth is still cool: The floor in the center is a stylized map of the world with the little SmartWool man dressed in country-appropriate customs on the countries where the brand is sold. Made for a great comparison game between visitors and staff to determine which was the favorite little man. (The Canadian hockey player was pretty cool, as was the German with a beer stein.)
