Big Outdoors Wants to Sponsor Your Thru Hike!

Planning a Thru Hike? 5 Reasons to Apply for a Big Outdoors Thru Hiker Sponsorship | CloudLine Apparel

A thru-hike is a huge undertaking and our friends at Big Outdoors are launching a sponsorship program to help 12 lucky hikers outfit their 2017 thru-hikes. If you are planning to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail, or Appalachian Trail this year, then head over to Big Outdoors and fill out their quick and painless sponsorship application by Monday, January 23rd. And if you aren't already convinced you should apply, here are 5 reasons to partner with Big Outdoors for your 2017 thru-hike. 

 

1. Big Outdoors Curates and Sells the Best Gear

Big Outdoors is like the Whole Foods of outdoor gear. You won't find cheap products from heartless corporations, but instead a carefully curated selection of the highest quality gear from companies that care. Big Outdoors stocks a complete line of gear for your adventures including CloudLine socks, base layers, jackets, hammock systems, backpacks, trekking poles and more. In short, Big Outdoors is a company you will feel proud to represent on the trail.

 

2. Outfit Your Hike with 30% Off Most Gear at Big Outdoors

As part of the sponsorship program, thru-hikers will receive 30% off most items from Big Outdoors. This is an amazing deal and a great way to keep your thru-hike affordable. After all, you are taking 3-6 months off of work to hike full time. 

 

3. Free Big Outdoors Swag

Big Outdoors is also going to make sure each thru-hiker in the program gets a Big Outdoors t-shirt or snapback trucker hat. And of course, plenty of stickers to pass along to fellow hikers. 

 

4. Big Outdoors Will Share Your Hike on their Blog

The "Big Blog" is our favorite outdoor blog of 2016. On it, Big Outdoors share stories ranging from gear reviews to how to poop in the woods. If selected for the thru-hiker sponsorship, you will get the chance to share your hike on the blog and have your words read by thousands of other hikers.

 

5. Free CloudLine Socks for Your Hike

We are excited to be contributing to the Big Outdoors thru-hiker sponsorship by outfitting each hiker with 2 pairs of CloudLine socks. If you haven't worn a pair yet, your feet are in for a treat. CloudLine socks are knit from premium itch-free merino wool that is naturally quick drying, fast wicking, and resists odors to keep your feet fresh, comfy, and blister free during your thru-hike.
