Outdoor Retailer Winter Market

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

Twice a year the outdoor industry gathers in Salt Lake City for Outdoor Retailer Winter Market to view the latest gear offerings from manufacturers. This is my 20th consecutive year and the 41st show in a row at Outdoor Retailer and I can say that I have enjoyed the first two days of this show as much as I have enjoyed any. Perhaps it is because of the steady traffic of buyers coming through our booth, or the chance to visit with our AMK athletes, like  24 Hour World Mtn. Bike Champion, Rebecca Rusch.

AMK Heatsheets Bivvy Donation

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

By Nate Offenberg, Product Manager at AMK

Once in a while, a project comes across my desk that makes me truly happy.  I have to admit – I have a pretty sweet gig here at Adventure Medical Kits.  As AMK’s Product Manager, I get to design the best medical kits and survival tools in the industry and I get to do it with a lot of people who I really like (and I’m not just saying that because they will eventually stumble onto this blog) – it really is a great job.  That said, there are always projects that take the cake, and this project in particular was perhaps the one I am most proud of this year.

The fog hit hard on the morning of November 23rd and I awoke knowing that something was not quite right. Although the Big Sur area is well known for its low visibility and dense fog, I knew that I should be able to see more than I currently could. That’s when my longtime friend and trusty campmate, Todd, looked at me from across our tent and politely exclaimed, “WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO YOUR FACE?!”.
