Best in Show 2015 Outdoor Retailer: CamelBak Recon Series

From Austin Parker at Motus

To say that Outdoor Retailer is overwhelming would be an understatement. Twice a year, thousands of manufacturers from around the globe come together in Salt Lake City to showcase and debut new gear and product line updates. While we have already shared with you our Outdoor Retailer 2015 New Gear Preview, we wanted to recognize what we thought were the “Best in Show” from this year’s event. Below, in no specific order, are items that we thought stood out from the crowd.


Camelbak Recon Series
The Recon series is Camelbak’s answer for light duty EDC and travel. Everything about the Coronado and Quantico are designed to keep all your essential gear organized. From padded laptop and tablet pouches to integrated electronics organization and low profile water bottle holders (these two are the very first Camelbak products that are not designed around a bladder), the Recon packs are low-key gear haulers. If they would have let me, I’d have carried one around the show floor all week.
