How it started?

Combined with her love of the outdoors she developed the idea of a online co-op — dedicated to hiking, backpacking, hammock camping & outdoor trail gear.

Outdoortrail gear.com (ODTG) was created to bring a group of cottage industry manufactures together. A group of skilled gear makers offering quality products all in one place.

The co-op vendors have taken their experience from the trail to offer product that is handmade with passion – product usually tested & created that they have used on the trail.

The concept of having a group of cottage industry manufacturers was to make for a pleasant shopping experience for those looking for outdoor gear as well as giving you a personal connection to those making the gear/ the co-op vendors.

A community of experienced hikers, backpackers & hammock campers will offer the customer that hands on experience with the knowledge of knowing what they are getting in their product.


The ODTG Community

Claire has also added sections for gear reviews, how to articles with trail tips, videos, articles about trail food, hammock camping, backpacking & more..
