Highlighting the new and improved items is the Black Canyon backpack. It, along with the other 14 pieces, features a lightweight recycled material constructed from commercial fishing nets destined for the landfill. The backpack as an adjustable external frame, air mesh back and padded shoulder straps. The pack also allows docking with many other Fishpond chest/lumbar packs. There are two zip out rod tube holders, one main compartment and three smaller pockets. The Black Canyon will be available Nov. 1 and go for $179.95. http://www.fishpondusa.com/
The Salt Lake Tribune is providing a look at some of the gear shown at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market last week at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Because the show is closed to the public, we thought we would share a peak with the public about gear coming to the outdoors world. Items will be featured on the Tribune's Hiking Utah and Fishing Utah blogs. An Outdoor Retailer package also ran in the Tribune.
