Without good equipment being outdoors is just half the fun. Therefore I thank Arcteryx and Gregory for their kind support in 2018. I have been hiking in the Great Wide Open of Kuujjuaq National Park in Nunavik and the Canadian Rocky Mountains as well as the tundra of Manitoba. I carried many kilos with “Gregory” backpacks and covered myself from snow and rain with “Arcteryx” outdoor clothing. Nothing to complain.
