Find out what’s new in hiking gear

 

Dale Leman

Locally owned Summit Hut has long supported the efforts of SaddleBrooke Hiking Club. Entering into the outdoor retail industry in 1967 by two teenagers, Summit Hut has grown over the last 50+ years and now has two retail stores along with an internet presence. Their business focuses on providing the finest gear for climbing, mountaineering, backpacking, camping, hiking, trekking, travel, birding, search and rescue, trail running and much more.

Join us Wednesday, April 18 at 4:00 p.m. in the SaddleBrooke One Activity Center as we hear what is new in hiking gear from Traci Bohme, Summit Hut General Manager. Traci will explain how technology has changed the products we wear and eat on the trails. Power foods, updated packs, hydration reservoirs, trekking poles, hiking pants, breathable shirts, socks, shoes, and electronics have all been affected by technology improvements. Traci will bring and display products as she explains what’s new. She also will address the complaint we hear most often on the trails, “my feet hurt,” and what can be done about it.

Residents of SaddleBrooke are invited to attend the meeting at the SaddleBrooke One Activity Center. Remember that there is no parking on the streets by the Activity Center. You do not need to be a member of the hiking club to come.

Following the talk, participants are encouraged to meet for happy hour at the Agave Lounge in the SaddleBrooke Clubhouse.
