The Experience Seeker

You need and love gear that gets you to those wild places but can switch from one of your activities to another. Versatility and durability are your top concerns, next to experiencing the backcountry. You’re a native to the outdoor world, meaning your closet is jammed with your favorite pieces from brands such as The North Face, Marmot, and Columbia. You love these pieces so much you wear them out on the town, to work, and outside because its simply your style. Of course you own a yeti, or you’re looking forward to that purchase very soon and you are comfortable using technology to map out your adventures.


The Endurance Achiever

You are fast and you love the speed meaning you need the type of gear that is not about to slow you down!

You track your achievement, performance, and pace with technology and you love a little competition.
