In the April issue of United Airlines' in-flight publication, Hemispheres, is a story featuring what it calls "the hottest new travel products about to hit the market," by editor Randy Johnson. Titled "Leaders of the Pack," the story includes several outdoor industry companies you know: Eagle Creek (Pack-It cubes), National Geographic (Hurricane 2 and Tempest 2 jackets), Adventure Medical (Backcountry Kit), and Brunton (Solarport Panel). It seems Johnson may be an outdoor enthusiast since his bio at the end of the story says he is a frequent traveler "who still prefers packing for the backcountry."
