Hillsound Equipment Expands Distribution Across U.S. and Canada

Vancouver, BC – Hillsound—the leading producer of winter traction equipment and gaiters for urban and outdoor enthusiasts—is increasing its distribution across North America. The company recently announced multiple new partnerships, expanding distribution to key outdoor retailers in the United States and Canada.


Hillsound’s original Trail Crampon has been picked up by REI, one of America’s leading outdoor retailers. The retail chain is bringing the micro-crampons into 17 of its store locations as well as selling them online. Additionally, Hillsound has signed with FGL Sports Ltd.—the largest national sporting goods retailer conglomerate in Canada. FGL Sports’ subsidiaries Atmosphere and Sports Experts stores will both carry all of Hillsound’s traction device products in their stores located in Alberta, British Columbia, Quebec, and Ontario.

“Hillsound’s universal appeal in a wide variety of outdoor and urban applications has become apparent in the demand for our products and the growth of our distribution,” said Hillsound Marketing Director, Jessica Greinke. “Our products serve everyone from ultra-runners and winter hikers to those living in urban areas looking for a safer way to walk their dog or go get the mail on snowy/icy days. We are excited to offer our lines to more people in more places, expanding Hillsound’s reach and increasing our community of brand loyalists.”
