How far would you go to test gear? For the winners of our Project Vertical contest with Bight Gear, the answer was 14,411 feet.
This week, our four intrepid gear testers—Amanda Gherich, Bennett Fisher, Nate Dodge, and Sarah Lee—summited Mt. Rainier with RMI Expeditions. The group spent months preparing for their adventure, and tested apparel from Bight Gear as well as GPS watches from Garmin on the way. Check back in soon for more on their adventure.
