TreePod Awarded Coveted Outside Magazine “Gear of the Show” Honor at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market

The TreePod is designed to enable outdoor fun and instill a love for the natural world in children and adults alike. Outside Magazine picked up on the brands intentions imploring readers to “try frowning in a tree house. It’s not going to happen” in their coverage of the award for TreePod.

With a collective 50 years of outdoor industry experience, the minds behind TreePod have once again tapped into retailer and consumer demand with the introduction of TreePod. Previously the company was awarded an "Editor’s Choice" pick by Backpacker Magazine at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2009 for the Classic Slackline, which helped successfully introduce the sport of slacklining to the mainstream. 

“The response to TreePod from retail buyers, consumers and the media alike has been overwhelming,” explains Ricardo Bottome, CEO of Canaima Outdoors. “It’s heartening to create something that we know will inspire people to get outside and enjoy the outdoors.”

Demand from retailers for TreePod spiked at the Outdoor Retailers and initial production-run quantities are dwindling. TreePod will be available at retailers nationwide in April 2016. Major retailers include Gander Mountain and Dick’s Sporting Goods while over twenty Grassroots Outdoor Alliance stores have also bought in.

The award comes on the heels of a successful Kickstarter funding campaign in December where the brand raised over $50,000. Kickstarter backers will be the first to receive TreePod when the first production run becomes available. 

Retailers looking to inquire about TreePod should immediately contact Derick Cole at Canaima Outdoors at More information on the innovative TreePod, including a product introduction video, is available at Media inquiries can be directed to Patrick Brown at Pale Morning Media by email at
