Sierra Designs Presents Andrew Skurka Clinics at ORSM


Sierra Designs is proud to offer several opportunities to meet National Geographic and Outside magazines’ “Adventurer of the Year” Andrew Skurka during the 2016 Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. Skurka, a renowned thru-hiker, has covered more than 30,000 miles in his 35 years, the equivalent of traveling around the world one and a half times. He will present a pair of backpacking-focused clinics during OR, as well as a meet-and-greet and raffle during Sierra Designs’ Happy Hour event.

In his “What Would Skurka Pack” clinics, Skurka will draw from years of experience in the backcountry to show his personal essentials for the trail. Attendees will learn how to select the best gear for hiking trips in two different environments: the western mountain region and the eastern woodlands. Skurka will also showcase his new pack designed with Sierra Designs, the Flex Capacitor. Check out the “What Would Skurka Pack: Western Mountains” clinic on Wednesday, August 3rd from 10-10:30am. The “What Would Skurka Pack: Eastern Woodlands” clinic will take place on Thursday, August 4th from 10-10:30am.
