Head over to the Amazon 5000 website where you can follow Mickey Grosman’s trail. He is tracing the El Dorado Voyage of 1541 led by Francisco de Orellana, who did not complete the extent of this trek. The expedition kicked off on May 19th.
Mickey will traverse 800 miles over the Andes, then 4200 miles down the Amazon River!! The adventure is expected to take at least 9 months. Watershed has outfitted Mickey with a variety of our gear to help make his voyage a success.
For details, information, how to support Mickey and much more please check out the site!!
While at the Mac World show this past January Justyn Thompson, our Brand Manager, met up with all sorts of new industry people.
Here is a brief review from online magazine, TrulyOutdoors. They are a sister site to TrulyObscure, which is a Hawaiian based online magazine and renown review site. You might recognize them both as affiliates of TrulyNet.
Their writers range from all over the world, with this particular reviewer hailing from San Francisco. David Shackelford delivers a simple, yet decisive review.

At the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada we talk with hundreds of people, and you never know what will come from conversations and sales. This year we had great reviews of some of our newer products, such as the Clutch and the Grid, but also reviews of our staple products.
The Ocoee has been around since the beginning of Watershed, and we are always thrilled to hear how new people are getting along with their new-found waterproof, submersible gear.
Here is a brief write up from Jim Shepherd over at The Outdoor Wire, scroll down about half way to reach the part about Watershed’s Ocoee duffel:
Watershed has recently introduced the most durable mesh bags available. Our gear bags are made with heavy-duty, abrasion resistant polypropylene, trampoline mesh (hence the name Tramp). Our Tramp gear bags are also discreet as you cannot see directly through the mesh to what’s inside. Even so, they are still extremely breathable, fully drain-able and come in 3 different duffel sizes, 2 shoulder tote sizes and now the Wheelie duffel.
Some of the best features of our mesh bags include: diagonal zippers for easier packing and unpacking, reinforced webbing that runs across the entirety of the bag, drainage grommets on the bottom, neoprene handle wrap, shoulder strap included, outside pocket, YKK zippers and a heavy-duty, reinforced bottom.
Check out this video at our local dive shop, Bermuda Triangle, where Brand Manager Justyn Thompson stuffs our Tramp Mesh Wheelie to its max. He fits enough gear for a full day of SCUBA diving.
