August is the month when outdoor industry gear manufacturers, influencers, buyers, athletes and enthusiasts gather in Salt Lake City, Utah for Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, a four-day frenzy of seeing, learning about and buying the hot new gear for next spring and summer.
Given the long lead time needed to produce gear, by the time new product is available for retailer pre-order, it can make your latest purchases seem out of style before you even get them home. Good news for this year is that many of the trends you love—smart details, beautiful patterns and soft, yummy fabrics—are staying around and getting better.
