BRUSH BEAT: Trade show headed to Utah

SALT LAKE CITY — One trend at the world’s largest trade show for outdoor gear is equipment that’s also fashionable and comfortable.

The Outdoor Retailer Winter Market runs through Saturday in Salt Lake City, and nearly 1,000 outdoor brands are displaying their latest products for storekeepers and big retailers. About 22,000 people are in town for the expo.

The goods range from sleek Gore-Tex jackets and the latest in ski equipment, to luxury items like espresso makers and camp stoves that do double duty charging electronic devices.

Suppliers range from industry giants Patagonia and Mountain Hardwear to tiny Ruffwear, a maker of performance dog gear in Bend.

The expo has taken place in Utah since 1996 and pours $40 million into the local economy each year.
