PHOTO Recap: Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2015

During tradeshows, brands are showing off their new lines to potential buyers, media, and guests of the show. Since everything is essentially new, nothing is better than making them choose just one item as their favorite. For Outdoor Retailer Winter Market this past week, we did just that. It sparked a lot of interesting stories and the Malakye crew loved seeing what each person chose. Take a look at who they are and what they picked.
