This post is a guest post by Exterro team member Adam Krieger. This was not meant to be an occupational picture. I took it at 13,000 feet altitude, just before summiting Mt. Alice during a week-long backpacking trip in the Rockies. The wind really started to pick up, so my friends and I took a break and threw on some jackets. Until I put it on, I didn't realize that the one I packed was from Exterro. Then--and now--this picture makes me think about everything Exterro has done for me over... Read More
