AtlasOmega brings you to Outdoor Retailer’s 2011 Summer Market, where equipment makers showcased their newest and most cutting-edge new products. This year’s show featured technical fabrics woven to produce a vintage look, ultralight gear made to propel the outdoor athlete faster and further than ever before, and of course a host of great parties for the work hard/play hard crowd.

Brunton Powers Up Your Adventures

Brunton’s portable power solutions provide freedom to those used to being tethered to wall sockets. The Solaris 4 USB Solar Panel and Inspire Portable Power Device make for a sleek, lightweight and durable power duo, for folks needing extra juice on the go or out in the backcountry.

Staying Warm and Dry with Terramar Baselayers

A great insulation baselayer will keep you warm when it’s freezing, and cool & dry when you’re working hard. For decades, Terramar has been fusing together high quality natural textiles with cutting edge, synthetic fabrics to create comfortable and functional insulation layers.

The Ultimate Ski Pant: FlyLow Chemical Pant

At the age of twelve, Evan became rebreather certified while designing and building his own custom, closed circuit rebreather (CCR), for a science fair project. Now at age thirteen, Evan has dived off of four continents, and plans to be the youngest person to reach the waters off of all seven. He currently lives with his family in Fountain Valley, California.
