GEAR LAB

For decades, Front Range gear junkies have gone to Boulder’s Neptune Mountaineering to see and buy the latest and greatest in outdoor gear. This August, the store’s customers will also get to discover fresh, innovative products from a new generation of brands launched through successful crowd-funding campaigns.

The Neptune LAB features a rotating selection of 10 to 12 curated products that have taken off on platforms such as Kickstarter and IndieGoGo. LAB customers get to see and handle the products and learn about the original crowdfunding project through interactive videos and signage. Some products are outdoor gear while others are more unexpected, such as ingenious pet toys or beautifully designed tech gear.

See what the LAB is all about at the program’s launch event on August 7. Participating brands and the inventors will be in the store for a happy hour at 6 p.m., followed by a Q&A on product design, innovation, and crowdfunding at 7 p.m. Find out more and reserve tickets via the Events link at neptunemountaineering.com.
