Outside Interests


Utah-based Cotopaxi is causing quite a stir in the outdoor-gear market. With a mission to end poverty, proceeds form their “Gear for Good” backpacks, jackets and trucker hats provide assistance to struggling communities worldwide. “The Luzon packs are made from fabric that is leftover from the production of other bags that otherwise would have sat on a shelf or been thrown away,” says Cotopaxi’s Alison Boyd. “Our new Luzon Del Dia bags have unique colors. There are no two alike, giving each bag a unique personality.”


The backpacks range in price from $35 to $50, making them a memorable—and functional—gift for outdoorsy friends and family.

And, if you’re looking for a bachelor or bachelorette party idea that doesn’t include a hangover, Cotopaxi hosts its annual Utah Questival, a wild 24-hour outdoor adventure race, in April.
