Readers' Choice Awards voting begins today -- will your favorite products be named?

As one of the many ways SNEWS® plans to celebrate its 25th anniversary this year, we have established a Readers' Choice Award to help identify 25 of the most innovative outdoor products from the last 25 years. We culled editor's choice awards, product reviews, interviewed veteran gear editors, and poured through the SNEWS and Backpacker magazine archives to arrive at a Top 50 list. Now, the rest is up to you, our SNEWS readers.

As one of the many ways SNEWS® plans to celebrate its 25th anniversary this year, we have established a Readers' Choice Award to help identify 25 of the most innovative outdoor products from the last 25 years. We culled editor's choice awards, product reviews, interviewed veteran gear editors, and poured through the SNEWS and Backpacker magazine archives to arrive at a Top 50 list. Now, the rest is up to you, our SNEWS readers.

It will only take two to three minutes of your time to vote for your Top 25 products by clicking here. We've even provided a place where you can write in a product or two that you may feel we missed in our zeal to recognize innovation. In addition, there is one more area for you to vote on the Top 5 materials and supplier innovations over the last 25 years too -- you know, things like waterproof zippers, welded seams, etc.

Your Top 25 products -- the ones that garnered the most votes overall -- will be featured in our 2009 SNEWS Outdoor Summer magazine that will be sent to subscribers and distributed at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in July. The top five will find their place on the cover of that magazine for full honors. Your vote really counts…don't delay. Responses must be in by April 15. Click here to vote now.
