Vasque's Thru-Hike Syndicate has announced the addition of the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) to the Syndicate for 2016. Starting in 2014 the Thru-Hike Syndicate has supported each year a select group of thru-hikers who are attempting to complete either the Appalachian Trail (AT) or the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), and the 3,100-mile CDT is now part of the list. Vasque's Thru-Hike Syndicate brand partners are Osprey Packs, Nemo Equipment, Leki Trekking Poles and Darn Tough Vermont. The final candidates of the 2016 Thru-Hike Syndicate for thru-hiking the AT, PCT or CDT will be announced on Jan. 11, 2016.
