If you're interested in getting a close look at the latest outdoor equipment and survival gear, the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market show is one of the best places to do so. However, this yearly trade show is restricted to members of the outdoor industry and media, and is not open to the public. That's where we come in — we'll be at the show this week, snapping photos and recording video clips of the coolest new items we see.

In previous years, ORSM was held in Salt Lake City, but this year's show will be taking place in Denver at the Colorado Convention Center. As always, the show will feature numerous booths and exhibits from all the biggest companies in the outdoor industry.

We'll be checking out apparel, backpacks, sleeping bags, tents, footwear, knives, tools, food and drinks, fishing and hunting gear, and much more. Many of the products on display are pre-production items, so we'll be able to get some first impressions before they go on sale.
