Altra- Footwear Partner

Altra wasn’t started in some corporate office, but in the back room of a Wasatch Mountain running store. Our founders, elite athletes and running store managers, wanted a shoe that let you run the way you were born to. They noticed that the design of most running shoes was hurting runners more than helping them.

What began as experimental shoe alterations has transformed into the only shoe company to provide a cushioned Zero Drop platform and FootShape™ toe box. This innovative combo promotes low-impact technique and allows your feet to remain in a natural, relaxed position across every terrain.

The Altra trail footwear range are ideally suited to ultra-distance running providing great foot protection and excellent comfort.

Ultimate Direction- Hyrdration Pack Partner

In 1985 Ultimate Direction invented the entire category of hydration packs. They created the first waist pack for carrying bottles, a few years later made the first pack/strap to carry a water bottle in your hand, and have made many other innovations that define what a hydration pack is today.

30 years later they remain a market leader, having created and popularized the “vest” concept for carrying water. We introduced the very first women’s-specific line of hydration packs and have brought the classics of the past into the technical future with award-winning gear such as our Fastpack and Ultra Jacket.

Injinji- Sock Partner
