RightOnTrek Is the Official US Backpacking Gear Rental Partner for HIGHLANDER

COLUMBIA FALLS, Mont. -- RightOnTrek, which aims to introduce everyone to the great outdoors and backpacking, is partnering with international backpacking adventure company HIGHLANDER to provide its award winning meals and gear rental support for HIGHLANDER's US based events.

Having just completed construction of its first Wilderness EDGE, a 24x7 fully automated outdoors gear rental facility outside Glacier National Park, RightOnTrek also offers a gear rental delivery service for guided expeditions in the western US.

HIGHLANDER has four backpacking "Adventures of a Lifetime" scheduled in the US for 2023, which will be served by RightOnTrek:

* Big Bear Lake, California (May 24th - 28th)

* Ogden, Utah (September 5th - 9th)

* Kalispell, Montana (September 19th - 23rd)

* North Lake Tahoe, California (October 3rd - 7th)

HIGHLANDER participants can reserve their gear online in advance at RightOnTrek's website, and RightOnTrek will deliver it to them at the event. When the event is complete, RightOnTrek will pick up the gear, giving HIGHLANDERs a fluid and easy gear rental experience.

"RightOnTrek is committed to providing the best meals and backpacking gear to HIGHLANDERs," said Victoria Livschitz, RightOnTrek founder and CEO. "We spent years developing our meals and turnkey outdoors gear rental delivery service and are ready to make sure their guests are fully equipped for their trek."

RightOnTrek gear rentals offer everything backpackers need including tents, cooking gear, communication devices, backpacks, sleeping bags, trekking poles, bear sacks and bear spray. They offer for sale consumable items including first aid kits, water purification drops, emergency shelters, and an essentials kit that has everything from sunscreen to lighters, wipes, soap, toothbrush, insect repellant and more.

RightOnTrek meals are highly rated by local enthusiasts and mainstream publications alike. BACKPACKER Magazine gave it the best Mac and Cheese award saying, "This mac is like a from-scratch Kraft with the volume turned up to 11." RightOnTrek offers six signature breakfasts and ten dinners and accommodates special dietary needs and preferences including vegetarian, vegan and keto. It also has offerings that are suitable for those with peanut, dairy, gluten and soy allergies.

RightOnTrek Eco-Friendly Product Design is Finalist for Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards

COLUMBIA FALLS, Mont. -- RightOnTrek was selected as a finalist in the 2023 Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards. Already receiving multiple best-in-class awards and recognitions from Backpacker Magazine for their outdoor adventure meals, they now earn recognition for their packaging and product experience pairing as well.

RightOnTrek re-imagined the eating experience around its packaging and challenges the industry convention of heavy plastic aluminum-laden pouches. RightOnTrek's multi-layer package material is made of 100% bio-based materials sourced from tree pulp. Their meals are designed to cook in minutes, and taste great. The eco-friendly packaging is waterproof and still has the durability required for any outdoor adventure.

One of the biggest accomplishments in RightOnTrek meal packaging is that it's plastic-free.

The middle barrier layer is a material made from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) approved wood pulp.

The inner linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) is a bio-based plastic. The company that produces it is International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC), certified.

The convention for outdoor meals is to cook and freeze dry food in a factory, package for a 10 to 30-year shelf life, and the end user rehydrates their meal with warm water in the bag.

While the soak-in-a-bag method is convenient, it requires heavy packaging that can handle the boiling water without burning one's hands. Sourcing and processing the plastics and metals in this packaging do harm to multiple upstream ecosystems, and you certainly don't want any of it in your system or our environment after use.

RightOnTrek challenges the need for adventure-ready meals to have doomsday-worthy shelf life. Their meals cook fresh on the trail and are ready for your next adventure, with an 18-month shelf life.

"The material going into the packaging is as important as what it turns into after use. By choosing 100% bio-based packaging derived from renewable resources, we feel we are doing our best to maintain a sustainable life cycle on the consumers' behalf," said Eric Boxer Sustainability Engineer and Head Chef of RightOnTrek Meals.

RightOnTrek is thrilled to be recognized as one of top-30 Product of the Year finalists.

Its core team was in attendance at the Outdoor Retailer Snow Show from January 10-12, 2023 in Salt Lake City, Utah to join with leaders in outdoor product innovation:
