Outdoors 101: Pack In, Pack Out

In honor of the spring season beginning and the urge to get outdoors being always present, we wanted to take some time this month to review a common travel practice of "Pack In, Pack Out". So what is "Pack In, Pack Out?" 

"Pack In, Pack Out" is a policy in many local, state, and national parks that helps keep our wildlife's clean. It is also incorporated into the 7 Principles of Leave No Trace which encourages us all to be better stewards of the outdoors to protect it for the next generations to come. 

The "Pack In, Pack Out" mantra is pretty straight forward - If you bring it into the woods, you bring it out of the woods. As users of public land, we have a responsibility to keep it clean. In these efforts, we have curated a selection of our outdoor products that we believe will make it easy to keep true to the "Pack In, Pack Out" policy.
