CamelBak TycoonThe initial day of the 2011 Outdoor Retailer Winter Market wrapped up with the excitement that comes with the opening. New products due for release for the spring, fall and further in the future were the focal point. And just like any industry trade show, new product buzz was followed by alcohol-induced buzz with the gaggle of parties and events throughout the day.

Here are some of the new products that caught our attention from the initial day.

CamelBak Tycoon

CamelBak has been associated with pedalers and hikers since the company started. The CamelBak Tycoon (pictured above) is part of the new Sidecountry series that will be available in Fall 2011.

The Sidecountry packs are designed for venturing off the front of the mountain and experiencing out-of-bounds skiing and boarding. Not straying too far, so you can be back to the resort area quickly.

The Tycoon has 1,125 cubic inches of cargo capacity and the company touts it to have a 40 percent lower profile than a typical day pack. An easy access pocket for an avalanche probe, fleece lined eyewear pocket and an insulated harness to prevent water freezing is a few of its features. The Tycoon will retail for $100.

Wenger Wildwood

Wenger, long known for their Genuine Swiss Army Knives, launched an outdoor footwear line a few years ago consisting of trail and cold-weather shoes. Wenger will be off and running for Fall 2011 with the Wildwood, the company's first trail running shoe. The Wildwood features an EVA midsole and a molded synthetic upper.
