Big Agnes mtnGLO™ Collection Earns Two Industry Awards


STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (August 25, 2014) – In keeping with its award winning heritage, Big Agnes’ new mtnGLO™ Collection earned Outside magazine’s Gear of the Show and Gear Junkie’s Best in Show awards at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market (ORSM) tradeshow. The line of mtnGLO tents and accessories was recognized for its proprietary, integrated illumination system, a first in the outdoor space.

“We know some of our customers don’t shy away from bringing technology into the backcountry so we created the mtnGLO collection to offer an added level of convenience and comfort,” says Big Agnes co-founder and president, Bill Gamber. “The mtnGLO technology is a low profile, lightweight solution, seamlessly integrated into a wide range of tent styles.”

Outside’s Gear of the Show and Gear Junkie’s Best in Show awards are reserved for the most innovative and unique products at ORSM which serves as a preview for retailers planning Spring 2015 product assortments. This is the second time Big Agnes has won each award.

The unique patent pending technology in the mtnGLO™Collection features light emitting diodes (LEDs) integrated into the construction of a tent. The collection includes seven tent models, an accessory tent lighting kit, and a durable case designed for tablets and other electronic devices featuring the Joey T55 computerized power supply. The LED lighting technology easily turns on and off with the flick of a switch so backpackers and campers no longer have to fumble for headlamps or flashlights in the dark.
