Team members will represent Yaktrax as brand ambassadors to help grow awareness and create meaningful content for the brand from October 2018 through March 2019.

“The YakPak team will be outfitted in a variety of Yaktrax products and will play a crucial role in pushing out brand initiatives, product information and promo periods as well as multimedia content throughout the winter season,” said Eric Lund, Implus Outdoor Brand Manager. “We invite anyone who truly believes in the Yaktrax brand to apply to be part of the YakPak community.”

Yaktrax is the ultimate winter solution for people of all walks of life, providing ice traction devices and hand warmers designed to keep you moving.

Ambassadors will also get a first look at new product introductions, participate in seasonal contests or affiliate promotions, and take part in sharing the Yaxtrax brand with their local and social communities.
