In 2017 Waymark Gear Company introduced the LITE and THRU series packs and entered the world of ultralight frameless backpacks. Since then, our packs have completed hundreds of thru hikes, and been the go to pack for thru hikers, section hikers, and weekend warriors alike.
Now in 2021 Waymark has introduced a refreshed line of backpacks based on the THRU and LITE designs that were introduced in Fall 2019. These new packs include the framed THRU and LITE, and the frameless THRU UL.
After a long season of use, the Red Pine Trail in Little Cottonwood Canyon, UT was in need of some maintenance. The Waymark Gear team joined the trail crew from the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation to perform this maintenance on the trail.
Giving back to public lands is an important part of who we are at Waymark Gear Co, and volunteering time to give back to our trails makes a huge difference in the impact these trails see over a busy season.
