Rachelle Snyder

Most people are outdoor dabblers, or occasional participants in the outdoors. And many of us prefer to spend our money on experiences over buying physical things. However, the retail-driven outdoor industry is focused on gear-owning enthusiasts, leaving the needs of outdoor dabblers behind. Now there’s a new way to explore the outdoors. Coozie Outdoors is an outdoor experience company that makes it easy to experience the outdoors without needing to buy, store or maintain outdoor gear. During this session we will share tips on how to plan your next outdoor experience, how to select your gear and share some of our favorite destinations.
