My Trail Co is a new company from Colorado, currently selling a few packs, tents and jackets with ambitious plans to expand. MTC emanates from the ashes of Golite, a company that was one of the main catalysts for the ultralight movement in the 2000s. I personally still have and regularly use my Golite Bitterroot down jacket, Jam2 50L pack, Feather 40 degree bag (now converted to a two-person quilt), and a few other things. I am very fond of who Golite was, what they made, and how they helped many of us to lighten up.
So, it seems like it would be a no brainer to partner with a company making items that are essentially updates of the original beloved items, now under a different brand name. However, there is a bit of a darkside in that Golite went bankrupt a few years ago and left debts of more than $3 million to outdoor suppliers, manufacturers, and real estate owners. Many ULers were unhappy with how Golite went out of business. It wasn't illegal, by any means...
We want to hear what Outdoors & Ultralight jackets all of you are into. More specifically, what brands, types, and styles.
▶ What type of qualities do you look for in a jacket?
▶ Are there certain materials or designs that make most sense for you?
▶ What companies do you think make the best products?
We’re always looking at posts and polls for suggestions, and we take them into account when we’re looking for products to put on the site. It doesn’t mean we can secure relationships with every brand or company of course, but we do try, and it gives us a better sense of the interests of the community.
We thought the easiest way to round up and talk about what jackets everyone likes is to make a Talk Post so let us know what you think and what suggestions you might have in the discussion. Myself and the buying team will be here to take everything into consideration.

We want to know what sunglasses all of you are into, especially as they pertain to the Outdoors & Ultralight Communities. (We will probably do a separate interest check for Sunglasses in Men’s Accessories as those would be more fashion oriented.) When it comes to sunglasses here, we want to know what suits you best for your outdoor experiences, excursions, activities, and adventures. We already source a variety of brands, types, and styles, but are always looking to stay in tune with the interests of the community.
· What do you look for in a pair of sunglasses?
· What kind of shape, features, or lenses do you prefer?
· Are there particular brands you like?
Your suggestions and feedback are taken into account when we look for products to put on the site so tell us what you like, what you don’t like and any preferences you have in between.

Is anyone else interested in a drop for bikepacking bags? I'm thinking about something like the Revelate Designs Terrapin or Viscacha:
Or maybe the Bedrock Coconino:
Enough for a really lightweight setup.
... and unknown brand knives!
Are we ever going to she the products that made us join (mass)Drop again? I really liked what you had here ... but with such a narrow selection of products I am unable to find anything to order any more.
Say Goodbye To The Unpleasantness of The Past，Welcome a Better D&D Life
2020 is destined to be an extraordinary year. We have all encountered many setbacks: COVID-19, the postponement of the Olympic Games, the death of ball king Maradona, etc. However, even the sadness of loneliness is worth storing these experiences in our minds, taking care of them, and then taking them out one day to savor them. These are all worthy of recollection and reflection.
In the new year, we will also sum up the past growth, clean up the shortcomings, and be more dedicated in future product development and customer maintenance. Of course, in order to welcome the coming of the new year, we have also launched some new products, hoping to get your approval.

@dandurston I pre-ordered your new backpack months ago. I received a confirmation email, but no tracking number. I emailed drop itself and haven’t received any thing back. It said that the estimated ship dat was 11/17 and would take 5-7 business days to ship. In reality my pack should have arrived to me already and I have no clue what the status is on the product at all. PLEASE HELP!
I have a great Kelty Streamside 4 tent, but the rainfly has gone bad. Recoating is not working very well. Does anyone know of a off brand replacement for the rainfly? Or a maker of rain flys where I could get another built?
