The outdoor community is riddled with initials and acronyms. While there are hundreds of different initials and acronyms that exist, today we are focusing on 10 we find ourselves explaining frequently. Instead of simply telling you what they stand for (that would be too easy right?), you have to guess between 2 options! To participate in the game, take the following steps:
1. Read through and pick which response you think is correct.
2. Once you've done that, check your answers (answers are listed at the bottom of the article) and see how many you got correct.
3. Post a comment with the number you got correct!
1 random guesser will receive a $50 gift card to GGG. Winners will not be determined based on the number of correct answers... so be honest! We'll pick a winner on July 4th.
"Ballistic Pack Wash" or "Base Pack Weight"
"Dyneema Composite Fabrics" or "Don't Camp Further"
"Dangerous Water Robots" or "Durable Water Repellant"

1. Base Pack Weight

Shoutout to the huge number of outdoor brands that also go by their initials. Maybe we'll do a guessing game on you in the future: SWD, HMG, MLD, ULA, MSR, REI, EMS, MEC, NRS, EE, a billion others, and of course... GGG!
