B$Z: RinseKit Cleans Up at 2015 Outdoor Retailer

RinseKit made big waves at this summer’s Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City. The innovative ‘hose-to-go’ was the honoree of two of the outdoor industry’s most prestigious awards: Outside’s “Gear of the Show” and Gear Junkie‘s “Best in Show.”


Outdoor Retailer is the country’s largest outdoor sports tradeshow, displaying the newest gear, apparel, footwear and sports accessories from thousands of retailers. RinseKit’s heavily trafficked booth at the show gave media and retailers a chance to try out the product for themselves. Trade show attendees were able to meet Chris Crawford, the founder of RinseKit, and participate in the Spray Down Challenge, a competition that enabled people to compete head-to-head for a chance to win a RinseKit of their own.

Outside and Gear Junkie have long been considered two of the outdoor industry’s top gear reviewers. Their teams of editors review hundreds of new products at Outdoor Retailer and choose only the most innovative and useful products to receive their coveted awards.

“We were psyched to win such incredible awards at our first Outdoor Retailer,” said Chris Crawford, founder of RinseKit. “We’ve worked hard to create a versatile product that can be used across so many sports and outdoor activities. We’re glad that Outside and Gear Junkie recognized our efforts. 

Fresh off its award at the ICAST fishing trade show last month, where RinseKit won “Best Fishing Accessory,” RinseKit is poised to continue their successes in the outdoor industry.
