Knives & multi-tools being spotlighted at seminars

Lynnwood, WA. – SOG® Specialty Knives and Tools has joined on as a sponsor of Backpacker’s Get Out More Tour for 2017. The Get Out More Tour is a nationwide tour featuring backpacking seminars with tips and techniques that encourage participation in outdoor activities.

“One of the essential items that every backpacker or hiker carries is a knife or multi-tool,” said Chris Cashbaugh, SOG’s senior director of marketing. “The Tour gives outdoor enthusiasts a chance to see our latest offerings and highlights the resourceful ways to use a knife or multi-tool while on the trail.”

The Get Out More Tour collaborates with specialty outdoor retailers who share the same education and outreach ethic with their customers. At each retail stop, Get Out More Tour brand ambassador Randy Propster will deliver an info-packed seminar full of trail-tested tips, regional trip advice and outdoor gear. The tour will travel to 48 states, presenting at 45 outdoor retailers, hosting five on-the-trail adventures and attending five outdoor festivals during the months of April through October. The tour kicked off in Austin, Texas on Apr. 4 and concludes in mid-October in Jackson, Miss.

Attendees at the Get Out More Tour’s workshops will have plenty of opportunities to win SOG’s award-winning multi-tools that pack all the tools required for hitting the trail
