Bergans of Norway Expanding its North American Gear Line at OR Summer Market

Bergans of Norway Expanding its North American Gear Line at OR Summer Market

Booth #22017

Join us for what’s new at the Outdoor Demo and at the Expo OR Summer Market is 12 days away. It came up fast and your appointment book is probably filling up fast too. Few weeks back we sent you an email to see if you’d like to make an appointment to see Bergans of Norway’s 2013 Spring/Summer product line.

Below are some descriptions and photos of a selection of products you’ll see in the booth, such as the new Glittertind backpack with the SPINE Natural Motion Carrying System, Birkebeiner Jr. 40 L and Nordkapp Jr. 18 L kids packs, Glittertind and Humle jackets, and Imingen Mountain Sports pants.

Also, Bergans will be at the OR Open Air Demo Wednesday, August 1 showing its ALLY foldable canoe. At 11:00 we will have a media only demo on how to assemble it, and you’ll get a chance to take it out for a spin.

Contact Beth or me if you’d like to make an appointment, or just come by booth 22017 located on the main aisle of the main north/south exhibit hall.

Best,

Chip Smith and Beth Cochran

Glittertind 70 L and 50 L Backpacks
