  • NEMO Equipment and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have issued a recall for about 7,500 Stargaze Recliner camp chairs—Recliner, Recliner Low, and Recliner Luxury—because the plastic joint supports can break, posing a fall hazard.
  • Logging miles: Big Agnes, Honey Stinger, and BAP employees are halfway through their relay hike along the 740 miles of the Continental Divide Trail through Colorado, and they've been through a lot—wildfire restrictions, enthusiasm from other hikers, emotional toil, and other momentous experiences.
  • For those of you who looked forward to the naked climbers calendar, sorry, this year will be its last. Dean "Bullwinkle" Fidelman is calling it quits on the Stone Nudes calendar.
  • Gear for good: Hydro Flask gave nearly $80,000 to The Conservation Alliance—100 percent of sales from the annual Garage Sale in Bend, Oregon, hometown for both the company and the organization. “We will put those funds to good use in our efforts to protect and defend wild lands and waters throughout North America for their recreation and habitat values," said John Sterling, Executive Director of The Conservation Alliance.

  • OnX welcomed Laura Orvidas as the new CEO. The company is the industry leader in digital mapping, creating products designed to help hunters and outdoor adventurers navigate terrain, public and private land boundaries and ultimately, as the company tagline states, to “Know Where You Stand.
