Summer OR show SLC 8/3 through 8/7 2011

I'm not posting live from the summer OR show as I have done at the winter shows in the past.  But obviously a few things are leaking out.  The Blue Ice Warthog pack and  the Petzl Lynx crampon are two early examples.  There is more to come.  Old and new technology being show cased.  Pictured are some wild ones and some old stand bys from the past and a few current "game changers" thrown in.  Just to get the process going :)

I am sworn to secrecy for a few more days.  But  I have to say...some of this stuff I hadn't even dreamed of yet.  And that is a long list of gear dreams when you start talking about ice gear and technical boots.

The Summer OR Show gives retailers a chance to see what will be available for Spring 2012 delivery and in some rare instances a few things that will be available for Fall 11.  But most new Fall items are generally shown at the winter OR show the previous Jan.  Delivery for the Winter OR show is Fall of that year, a full 9 months later.  So Winter OR 2012 will show clothing, ski and climbing gear available in the stores the Fall of 2012.  Summer OR shows the summer sporting goods and clothing that will be available in the spring of the following year.  Hopefully that makes sense.

More to come by the end of the week.
