Every summer and winter, the biggest outdoor brands (and a few up-and-comers) gather in Salt Lake City to showcase their new gear and technical innovations for the upcoming year. Outdoor Retailer, or OR, is the industry's largest trade show and attracts over 25,000 attendees; most are buyers from the country's leading specialty retailers (think REI) and your favorite local shops. Here are some of the greatest hits from Colorado companies like Osprey and Nite Ize—plus, a few standouts from some boutique brands.
