Gear Contests

Annual Great Pacific Long Distance Hiking Gadget and Invention Revue

The Annual Great Pacific Long Distance Hiking Gadget and Invention Revue features clever inventions by long distance hikers. Everything from nifty tent stakes to a home-made parka to modified store-bought gear, you name it. If it's unique, it's eligible. The contest will be held Saturday morning, and the presentations themselves are half the fun.

The rules--if you want to call them that--are similar to last year's:

  • No commercial entries are eligible for prizes. (Vendors with cool, innovative stuff will be displaying their wares throughout the weekend.)
  • ADZ attendees (not a panel of judges) will determine the winners of the contest. Following the presentations, you'll be able to chat with each presenter, examine their gear close up, and place your vote for your favorites!

You can view descriptions and pictures of previous winning entries here, here, and here.
