Nepal earthquake

Kudos to leaders in the adventure travel and outdoor gear industries for rallying to help the relief efforts in Nepal.

In May, the Outdoor Industry Association sent gear companies requests for certain items, including 1,000 tents; 4,000 to 5,000 pieces of simple rain gear; 1,000 to 2,000 water-treatment systems; and 2,000 to 3,000 knit caps, according to a report by the Adventure Travel Trade Association.
