Trail Ambassadors

Gossamer Gear Trail Ambassadors are enthusiastic advocates of ultralight and lightweight backpacking, eager to pass along their outdoor skills and experience to other hikers, and backpackers, and adventurers. Many volunteer their time with hiking clubs or conservation organizations, some are professional guides, and others document their adventures for magazines or online publications. But there’s no secret formula for what makes a good trail ambassador, so if you love Gossamer Gear’s products and you’re active in the hiking and backpacking community, we encourage you to apply to the Trail Ambassador Program.
