River Country Products hits the Big Time

Miles and Mountains

Take a listen as River Country Products founder Ned Stratton, along with his partner Brian Anderson, discusses the origin of LifePack, the ultimate survival and adventure pack, with Nick from the Miles and Mountains Podcast.

Nick’s podcast, formerly called Miles, Mountains & Brew, is centered around endurance running, climbing mountains, and what he calls “the rodeo life”. Of course, this was a great opportunity and forum for River Country, so we grabbed it by the horns!

In this hour-long podcast, Ned discusses the purpose of LifePack, some of his experiences growing up near the Cascades of Washington State and the relationship between Life in a Pack and River Country Products. He talks about designing new tents for the pack (the soon-to-be available Trekker Pyramid and Trekker Palace), some of the challenges he faced trying to assemble the pack during Covid lockdowns, and more. It’s a fun conversation and gives some insight into Ned’s entrepreneurial mind.
