Guadalupe Ridge Trail testing

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” 
~L.M. Montgomery
October, October, October,  what a fun month! It's cooling off,  Halloween is coming (one of the best holidays in our opinion), and we've added another option in the shop. Dyneema fabric makes an appearance for our zipper pouches in an even lighter weight option for your trail toiletries, electronics, pencil pouch for school kids, or whatever you want to use them for really.
Speaking of new gear options, we are heading back out on trail to test out some gear again, totally stoked for that. 

Guadalupe Ridge Trail

Ground zero for our new round of gear testing is the Guadalupe Ridge Trail (GRT) this month. We are heading out to thru-hike the ~70 mile main trail and put some gear designs through some ultimate desert mountain beatings. The GRT has an additional +30 mile loop through Sitting Bull falls and Last Chance Canyon we're going to have to miss out on this time, but we get to nish the trail at the highest point in Texas on Guadalupe Peak at 8,751 ft. Short for some from the more mountainous states, but still an interesting place none-the-less. The main trail, running from White's City, NM to Guadalupe Peak takes you through varied terrain from Chihuahuan desert floor up to Pine Forests on the slopes of the Guads with plenty of elevation changes up and down along the way. Be sure to follow our Instagram for story updates and cool images coming from the trail when we can post, cell service is pretty spotty in this remote backcountry area.
