Tonight we fly out to Salt Lake City, Utah for the 2014 Outdoor Retailer (OR) Summer Market expo. OR is one of the, if not the largest expos for everything outdoors. We’ll be there for almost a full week and will do our best to bring you the latest and greatest the outdoor/paddling industry has to offer.

Just like ICAST last month, we want you help. Let us know what questions you want us to ask the manufacturers and let us know which boats you want us to take a closer look at on the water. Post your feedback in the comments below and try to use this format.

Example Demo: (Joe Smith - Wilderness Systems - Thresher) How stable is it on the water?

Example Question: (Joe Smith - Wilderness Systems - Thresher) When will the kayak be available?
