You’ve gone ahead and done it. You either just finished school, quit your job, retired, or you’re just taking a long hiatus to go after that adventure you’ve always wanted. You’ve decided to thru-hike a long trail.
Over 20 years ago our founder decided to do the same thing and never looked back. Out of his experience came Vargo as you know it today. We can’t wait to see what comes out of yours.
You’ll have early mornings and long days, ups and downs, valleys and vistas, and make many friends and unforgettable memories. Pinching pennies and stretching dollars is something you’ll learn to do second nature. You’ll be hard on your gear. Very hard. You’ll need gear that is light, strong, and durable. And that is where we can help.
Every three days during the month of March we’ll be giving away free Vargo gear that will help lighten your packs and ease into the thousands of miles you’ll be hiking. Simply pop over to our website, click on the WIN icon, and enter your email address for your chance to win. You can enter for multiple drawings during the month to increase your chances of getting the good stuff.
Also, as you begin gearing up and training for your long hike, be sure to tag @vargooutdoors in your posts and pics on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter and use the hashtag #thruhikermonth for your chance to win our grand prize giveway, a Ti-Arc Backpack ($299.95 retail value). Drawing will take place on March 31 so enter as many entries as you can to improve your chances of winning!
THANK YOU for being our inspiration, heroes, and supporters these many years!
