HPG Woods Runners
One of the very best things about Hill People Gear is meeting fellow travelers who we never would have run across otherwise. People who share many of our values and views about the world in general and also about outdoor gear. We've been blessed to meet some of our truest friends this way.
Many of these people are also professional users - they have a good depth of experience in the field and choose to use our gear for their day job. Sometimes one of these professional users will go out of their way to promote our gear, help us as a company, and spread the word. By their own choice and actions they become brand ambassadors, or HPG Coureurs des Bois.
We don't have a formal program. Just like their historical namesakes (the "woods runners" of Canadian frontier fame), these are unique individuals who go their own way on their own terms and can be trusted to represent our gear fairly - both the good and the bad. They mostly do get discounts on gear, but there is no set amount and they started out as customers paying full price. This is our way of recognizing their contribution more publicly.
