You know it’s time for another Outdoor Retailer show when South Main Street in Salt Lake City is populated by fat bikes, single-wheeled skateboards and tan people with good beards. And so it was. We had boots on the ground at the Salt Palace Convention Center for the summer 2014 edition of the biannual product show for retailers, manufacturers and other industry insiders. There was sheer tonnage to see: evidence of a booming SUP market, fine dining for camping and enough dog products to turn your hound into a diva. Of everything we touched, tasted and saw, this gear stood out most.
