Ostrom Outdoors says goodbye
For nearly 30 years he has been constantly desiging backpacks and other gear to help other people travel through the bush, or down the river more comfortably.
In 1994, he was the first to design a canoe/portage pack with an internal frame.
Since then, he's worked with the Canadian military to build better equipment, and he's worked closely with Queens University, researching the mechanics of carrying heavy loads.
But now, Ostrom Outdoors, - the company, and the retail outlet - are shutting down.
