OutDoor Show 2014 Preview

Posted on 10 Juli 2014

One year is over and the doors of the OutDoor Show in Friedrichshafen will open from today until Sunday. Lots of new and interesting gear is shown there and many interesting people are at the show to present their products or just to have a look at the new gear. Before the show starts I want to pick up some higlights.

NW Alpine presents a new and redesigned model of the Eyebright Jacket. This one is one of the lightest waterproof breathable jackets on the market and is made with a special Cuben Fiber.

The EvoLite mat from Therm-A-Rest is the future of self inflation. It is a mix between foam and air mat and with 480g one of the lightest self inflation mats on the market.

Kupilka, the company from Finland which makes fantastic dishesware and cutlery comes along with a knife. It is a new design of the old traditional Finnish knifes and it is made with steel and natural fiber composite.

Polaris Optifuel is the new stove from Optimus. You only need one yet and can boil different fuel without changing the yet. You also have a 4 season gas mode for more power on cold winter trips.

Primus from Sweden present at the Outdoor Show a special Winter Gas. It improves the low temperature performance of LP gas cartridges by using a unique innovation inside the cartridge: Vapour Mesh. This gas will work down to temps of -22°C.

No year without a new lightweight tent from Terra Nova. They will present the Laser Ultra 2, the lightest 2 person tent on the market with 695g and it is made with Cuben Fiber. But that’s not all. The TN Solar Ultra 2 is the lightest free standing tent and it is also shown at the OutDoor Show.

Last but not least I have to say, that I am not at the OutDoor Show this year, because my son is more important. It is a bit sad not to meet all my blogger friends and companies. No daily news on my blog and now parties, but no worries.

There are lots of other blogger at the show and the write daily updates of the news or some articles after the OutDoor Show. So have daily look at the blog Hiking in Finland and on his Facebook and Twitter account. He will write daily updates of the news. And you should also check the blogs from Dennis and Sven. They are also there and keep you update with all the news.

    Hei Beni, sorry to hear you won’t be reporting from the show this year but as you say, you have a far more important role to play now!

    Looking forward to the EvoLite from Thermarest. As someone who is constantly switching between a small self-inflator and a large air mattress, this really could be the ‚one mat to rule them all‘.
