To say that the GoLite brand has been through turbulent times would be a bit…
Even though GoLite filed for bankruptcy late last year, co-founder Demetri Coupounas is hoping to reincarnate the company as My Trail. Coupounas purchased rights to all the GoLite product designs during the dissolution of the company, and is now looking to the public to raise funds to start his new company in order to bring the popular lightweight gear back to market.
A few weeks ago, GoLite sent me their newly updated
Jam Pack for 2010 and
Badlands Trinity Softshell Jacket
to review. Since both are waterproof, the gear was perfect to test out during the cold, rainy season here in Northern California. My new motto has become: "I hike and run miles everyday in the mud and rain with my dog Lola, therefore I GoLite!"
