How would like to be a Backpack Field Tester?

Tahoe Mountain Sports and Boreas Gear are teaming up to get real-world feedback from hikers, bikers, campers and climbers across the country on the unique, innovative backpacks from Boreas Gear.

Five testers will be selected to put a Boreas pack to the test – whether it’s on a week-long backpacking trip or daily bicycle commute – whatever you’re adventure is, Tahoe Mountain Sports wants to know how the Boreas Backpack performs. Just head to the Tahoe Mountain Sports Facebook Page and tell them what you propose to do with a new Boreas pack.

“We’re looking for testers who can really take advantage of what our packs have to offer – whether you’re planning a big backpacking trip, you need a great day pack to haul around climbing equipment, or you live on your bike,” said Anders Johnson, sales manager with Boreas Gear.

Check out the full line of Boreas Gear backpacks to see which pack would be best for you to test, and get creative! Pack selection subject to availability.

Tahoe Mountain Sports pick five testers on July 6 and send them packs for field testing. The testers will then send 500 to 1,000 word reviews with a minimum of three photographs to Tahoe Mountain Sports by August 15th. By completing the review and photos, testers will get to keep their new Boreas pack!

“We’re excited about Boreas packs, and we want to help get the word out by putting these in the hands and on the backs of real-world users,” said Dave Polivy, owner of Tahoe Mountain Sports.

What a wonderful idea. It would be cool to be a tester for the backbacks. I'm already envious of those who will be participating.

Testing a backpack sounds like a fun job. Good to see a company recruit real people to test their bags.
