Gossamer Gear Trail Ambassador




I am super excited to announce that I have been made a Gossamer Gear trail Ambassador!
I've been using the Gossamer Gear Gorilla pack since about 2009 and I love it.  I'm looking forward to getting one in my size.  With the help of Grant at Gossamer Gear I learned that my current pack is too big for me. 

Soon GG will send me a 2013 Gorilla in my size and they will send me cards that I can pass out to give people a discount on Gossamer Gear equipment.  Yay!  I never got to be a sponsored skateboarder due to my ankle injuries, but now 20 years later, I'm a sponsored hiker.. how kewl is that?

Update:

Gossamer Gear has now sent me a form email letting me know that I am no longer a trail ambassador.  In their words they have grown from a “cottage manufacturer to a mid-sized company with higher quality products and significantly more manufacturing capacity.”  Therefore they have slashed most of their trail ambassadors.  It seems that I did not make the grade in spite of being number one in Google search for the term “Gossamer Gear 2013 Gorilla” and in spite of all my blogging efforts.
