It’s that time of year again!

As winter thaws the land and our spirits, many of you are looking to plan your big spring and summer adventures. And some of you are planning for something bigger–a thru-hike! But whether you’re planning for a thru-hike or not, we’ll be here to help you gear up.

Thru-hikers continue to inspire and shape us into who we are today. Over the many miles, they continually push our products to the limits while demanding more versatility and lighter weights. In short, if our products don’t pass the thru-hiker test, they usually don’t make the cut. What can we say? Vargo was born and bred by that thru-hiker mentality.

It’s for these reasons that this month we celebrate thru-hikers one and all.

To do so, every three days during the month of March we’ll be giving away free Vargo gear to help lighten your packs and ease you into those thousands of miles you’ll be hiking. To enter, simply pop over to our website, click on the WIN icon, and enter your email address for your chance to win. Enter multiple drawings during the month to increase your chances of getting the good stuff!
