OluKai Partners with REI Outessa to Offer Women Outdoor Experiences, Inspiration and Adventures

Three summer events in California, Oregon and New Hampshire help women be their sweatiest, dirtiest, happiest selves

Orange County, CA – March 9, 2017 - OluKai today announced its sponsorship of REI Outessa, three immersive, three-day outdoor adventures designed to connect women with the outdoors in a supportive learning environment. Now in its second year, these women’s getaways are filled with activities and inspiration, offer access to coveted gear and products, serve up great food and wine, and create the environment for making new friends and lasting memories. Registration is now open at www.REI.com/Outessa.

Through the partnership, OluKai is the official lifestyle footwear sponsor of the Outessa series. As a long-time supporter of REI, OluKai plans to connect with the Outessa community of women and share the Anywhere Aloha message.

“The sponsorship of REI’s Outessa weekends falls directly in line with OluKai’s belief to live a positive, impactful life,” remarked Kerry Konrady, OluKai’s VP of Marketing, “There’s no better way to do that than spending time in the outdoors, and challenging yourself through adventure, immersed in a community sharing the Aloha spirit.”

“Last year, REI Outessa was a transformational experience for hundreds of women. We are excited that OluKai has signed on to provide their premium footwear for the events. Together with OluKai and other partners, we will help women tap into an emotional and profound connection to nature in her journey to live a life outside,” said Sally Johnson, the events manager for REI who helped create the Outessa series.

More than 20 of REI Outdoor School’s top female instructors will partner with leading outdoor brands to host a full range of adventures, including hiking, trail running, mountain biking, rock climbing, trail photography, paddle boarding, kayaking, climbing, yoga, backpacking, wilderness survival training, outdoor cooking and more.
