I missed the first full day due to a personal commitment but made it to the show for the start of the second day.  Below are some cool products I saw today at the show.  Enjoy!

OMEALS is a new food company that uses self heating technology to heat up various food meals.  It seems like a neat product for both camping and emergencies.

I also had a chance to take a look at their new adjustable hip belt that uses hook and loop closures to expand or shrink the hip belt.  This is especially important for long distance hikers who may loose weight on the trail which would necessitate a new belt.

Saxx is a men’s underwear company known for their ball pack pouch on the front of their underwear line.  They are integrating their underwear into running and hiking pants for spring 2018.
