Lafayette, CO (August 30, 2021) – Trango, the award-winning manufacturer and international distributor of technical climbing equipment is proud to announce the company has raised nearly $4000 for the Red River Gorge Climbers’ Coalition. The donation funds were raised at the recent 2021 Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, held in Denver, CO, where Trango collected funds through the sale of its new Mountain Vault Expedition bags.
“The sales event that we held during Outdoor Retailer was a great success and we sold through the entire inventory of Mountain Vault bags by the end of the second day of the show,” said Everett Russell, Marketing Manager at Trango. “We couldn’t be happier with the result, and we’re excited to make such a sizeable donation to the Red River Gorge Climbers Coalition to help support their mission of securing and protecting open, public access to rock climbing in the Red River Gorge area of Kentucky.”
“On behalf of the Red River Gorge Climbers’ Coalition, we are deeply honored to be the recipient of this incredible contribution from Trango,” added Jake Ellis, Director of Corporate Relations for RRGCC. “These important funds will go towards furthering our mission by helping us pay off our current land mortgages and to assist in purchasing more land in the future to keep open access to the special rock climbing in the Red River Gorge.”
Trango Mountain Vault bags are designed for explorers and travelers alike. A lockable zipper combines with a waterproof/sealed body to protect your gear on anything from smaller trips to rugged mountain destinations. A full zip top allows you perfect visibility as you pack and utilize your gear. These can be carried as a backpack or a duffel and come in three versatile sizes. The 42L ($159.95) can fit in most standard airline overheads, the 122L ($189.95) swallows gear for larger expeditions, and the 72L ($179.95) conveniently fills the gap for your mid-sized trips.
“As a company, we are deeply committed to promoting conservation and preserving access to the lands where we all climb,” added Russell.
Trango has been designing climbing gear in the Front Range since 1991 and remains passionate about creating innovative, solution-oriented products that help climbers achieve the next level in the sport.
