Vasque, Osprey Packs, Nemo Equipment, Leki Trekking Poles and Darn Tough Socks have announced the official 2015 Thru-Hike Syndicate. Members of the American syndicate will be sharing photos, videos and stories during their thru-hiking experience via social media while representing the brands. In exchange, participating brands will supply the members with gear for their trip and will help them when they need more gear or replacements. The 2015 Thru-Hike Syndicate consists of eleven Pacific Crest Trail thru-hikers and ten Appalachian Trail thru-hikers.
