Jackson Kayak/Orion Coolers is proud to be among such great company with Patagonia and Coleman in the final three companies for the “Inspiration Awards” at Outdoor Retailer 2015. We are also extremely proud to be a finalist in the Made in America Outdoor Awards being presented also, at Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake later this month. Being a relatively new American manufacturer and being honored twice in one year among industry giants is something that we appreciate and hope that it can inspire others to make their products locally and strive to excel in the market-place.”

Outdoor Retailer is the main industry trade show where manufacturers, media, and retailers gather to look at new product, make plans for the year, and move the industry forward. There will be two separate awards ceremonies, one for USA Manufactures making their products locally here in the USA, and one that is for any company. They are also independently run awards.

I will be going to represent Jackson Kayak and Orion Coolers and attending the ceremonies, as well as seeing many friends and associates in the industry.

Whether we win the finals or not, we are certainly proud to be among such great companies and being the only kayak manufacturer in either finals.

Thank you, our customers, team, staff, and ownership for making Jackson Kayak what it is today!
