If there’s one trait that all of Gossamer Gear’s Trail Ambassadors share, it’s a love of hiking in all of its forms from long distance thru-hiking and weekend backpacking trips to day-hiking, pack-rafting, peakbagging and bushwhacking. If you love to hike and you enjoy helping other hikers discover the benefits of lightweight hiking and backpacking gear, we encourage you to apply to the Gossamer Gear Trail Ambassador Program by filling in the Application Form below.

A discount code that you can share with friends, family, or acquaintances who are interested in purchasing ultralight backpacks, poles, and accessories from Gossamer Gear.
Free publicity and assistance for Trail Ambassador sponsored gear demos, talks and courses on ultralight and lightweight backpacking, conservation-related charity events, and publications.

Trail Ambassadors are encouraged to hold gear demos and give talks about the techniques and benefits of ultralight and lightweight backpacking. Gossamer Gear will assist you by providing product samples to demonstrate and supporting instructional materials.
Ambassadors can provide design input and feedback on new products and design prototypes.
Attend Trail Ambassador sponsored events or meetups in your area.
Provide trip reports, how-to articles, photographs and updates for Gossamer Gear’s blog, newsletter, and social media channels.
