From January 20th to 23rd, Ben was at the 2015 Outdoor Retailer Winter Market trade show, where gear manufacturers show off their latest and greatest products, retailers buy those products, and podcast hosts and other media cover everything else. With over 1,000 companies at the trade show, it can get a little overwhelming. For this episode of MTNmeister, we focus on smaller companies who are doing something different or more innovative than the rest of the market. Perhaps more important, they had to be willing to give the Meister fans free stuff. In this one-hour episode, we feature twelve different companies, and every single one is giving away gear. The combined value of all of the items being given away is over $2,000. Thanks to the companies below for participating!
