Canoe & Kayak Magazine's Gift Guide 2011!

2 min read

We’re thrilled to be included in Canoe & Kayak Magazine’s 2011 Gift Guide that was just released!


Here’s what they had to say:

“Planning on escaping for a paddling trip to warmer climes this winter? When you’re ready to stretch out and relax on that rocky riverside or cobbled ocean beach, deploy the 1-pound Trek Light Single Hammock. Triple-stitched in fast-drying parachute nylon, the Trek Light holds up to 400 pounds and folds down to the size of a water bottle. Rain, bugs, bad with knots? No need to sleep in the dirt. Add the V-9 Hammock Tarp ($70), Bug Free Hammock Shield ($70), or the Rope and Carabiner Bundle ($26) to your hammock kit. ($65,”

Canoe & Kayak Magazine has been the world’s leading paddling magazine since 1973 and we’re extremely honored to be included in their gift guide this year.  Make sure you check them out on Facebook and Twitter for everything under the sun (and water) in the world of paddling.

We’ve been incredibly happy to see a number of other great gift guides include Trek Light Gear on their list this year as well:

The incredibly popular travel site just named us one of the Top 10 Travel Gifts and on the local level the Vail Daily called us one of the 10 Best Colorado Gifts!

It’s a great sign that word is spreading about our incredible products and as small business that's exactly what we need to continue doing what we do!  If you love Trek Light Gear, don't forget to let your friends know about us and help them out with their holiday shopping this year.  A lot of people get frustrated looking for a great gift idea and you can easily help your friends and help us at the same time!

A huge Trek Light Gear thank you to everyone who has given our products as gifts, featured us in their blog or gift guide and to all of you who continue to help spread the word!
