The 2018 Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show, which moved to Denver from Salt Lake City this year, features new gadgets and outerwear for outdoor gear lovers. They include lynq, a hand-held "people compass" that allows groups to link together without WiFi so they don't get separated while skiing or hiking. Another is the Reservoir Jacket by the company 686, which features a built-in water bladder at the bottom of the jacket with a tube that runs up the inside the zipper to a person's mouth. CPR's Nathan Heffel talks about a few picks from the show.
