Outdoor Retailer / SIA Highlights (Ep.8)

This episode is a roundtable recap from the Outdoor Retailer / SIA show in Denver with five of our editors and reviewers about some of the most interesting new gear we saw at the show.

We hope you’d been following us along on instagram, because we put up about a hundred Insta stories that captured pretty well the highlights of what we were seeing. So if you aren’t following us on instagram, you can find us at @blisterreview.

For this round table conversation, I was joined by reviewers Sascha Anastas, Kristin Sinnott, Sam Shaheen, and Luke Koppa. We talk about a ton of gear, so check our show notes to this episode (below) or on your phone if you want to jump around in our conversation.
