Back at the summer Outdoor Retailer Show, I came across Expedition, a Russian company with a line of whimsical, almost tongue-in-cheek gear. I really liked some of the company's goofier outdoor offerings, but since it was in the new exhibitors pavilion, I feared that it might not get picked up here in the States.
Luckily, it has. Out of the corner of my eye, I caught some Expedition offerings at Dakota Watch Co's booth at the OR Winter Market. A rep said that it plans to start distributing select Expedition gear by mid March. Dakota only plans to carry some items at first but may expand later on.
The pictured metal shot glasses were among the products that Dakota had on display. Hopefully, they'll also carry a few of these awesome hats:
