Update: As of January 28th, 2014, I am no longer a Gossamer Gear Trail Ambassador.
As some may already know, a few weeks ago I was officially accepted into the Gossamer Gear Trail Ambassador program, and of course I am super excited to be a part of this group! Simply put, a number of the other Trail Ambassador’s are hikers/bloggers that I have been following for the last couple of years, so of course I am quite honored to be in the same program as they are. As well, the few pieces of gear I have from Gossamer Gear are great pieces of gear (one of them being a personal favorite…my LT4′s) and not to mention, each time I have placed an order with Gossamer Gear, I received top-notch customer service. So, basically, this is awesome for me!
So, what is a Trail Ambassador you ask? To best answer that, here is an excerpt from the Gossamer Gear site on the Trail Ambassador page:
…Trail Ambassadors are people that are passionate and excited about the ultralight backpacking movement. They are proud users of Gossamer Gear products and are ultralighters in the true sense of the word. We work with them to develop and test our new products…
So, the best part of being a Trail Ambassador is that I do not have to change anything that I am already doing! I already thoroughly enjoy being a “UL” backpacker, and enjoy telling others about the benefits of it. As well, my Gossamer Gear LT4′s go with me on every trip I go on, and have become one of my personal favorite pieces of gear (look for a review on them in the coming weeks). As well, I look forward to the possibility of being able to work more directly with Gossamer Gear with new projects in the future!
So, as I already said, I am super excited to be a part of this program and would like to extend my thanks to the guys at Gossamer Gear for taking me on! I am excited to see what happens in the future…
