Twice a year, gear makers from all over the world gather in the Denver, Colorado Convention Center to share their newest designs, innovations, and inventions with outdoor stores, journalists, and their peers. This year, the biggest focus was on how to keep people kitted out in rain jackets, hiking boots, and travel bags, without trashing the beautiful places we thrill to experience.
Besides eco-benign waterproofing and repurposed content, gear keeps getting lighter but also more durable, using less material and lasting longer. Here are a few of our favorite new products, most of which will be available spring of 2020.
GSI Pinnacle Pro Stove
Base campers rejoice. Packed in your car or camper, GSI’s sleek and modern 1.5-inch thick Pinnacle Pro Stove takes up half the space of a standard two burner stove. GSI engineers redesigned the twin 11,000 BTU high-efficiency ring style burners to draw and mix oxygen and fuel on a horizontal, not vertical plane, reducing burner depth.
Retracting legs that expand automatically when you open the stove further contribute to the space savings. The stove lights instantly with a dual piezo ignition system. And the non-stick coated boil-over tray makes cleanup fast and easy.
