Leatherman, a manufacturer of high quality multi-tools, will join REI Outessa Summit as a sponsor. Outessa events, the first of their kind, are custom-tailored outdoor weekend getaways for women offering immersive outdoor experiences, hands-on product trials and education from professional athletes and expert guides. The two weekends will be held at Kirkwood Resort near Lake Tahoe, California, from August 19 to 21, and Powder Mountain near Salt Lake City, Utah from September 9 to 11.

As part of the partnership, Leatherman will be hosting multi-tool classes where women can learn how to use the different types of tools a Leatherman offers. REI will also be featuring Leatherman multi-tools in the wilderness survival and backcountry skills classes.

“We are extremely excited to be a part of the REI Outessa Summit,” said Bobbie Parisi, VP of product and marketing at Leatherman. “Whether you’re hiking for a few hours or a few days, we want to show women the value a Leatherman can bring to their time outside.”

“Through the REI Outessa Summit, we are offering women the opportunity to try something new and experience some unforgettable outdoor adventures,” said Julia Stamps Mallon, co-founder and VP business development of Eventus Outdoors, the company behind Outessa. “We are excited that Leatherman has signed on to provide education on multi-tool use in the outdoors.”
