she is...
crossing rivers,
conquering summits,
exploring oceans,
dancing in sunny fields,
wandering dark forest,
sleeping in hammocks,
flowing wild trails,
jumping canyons,
walking the dogs,
hiking long distances,
counting stars,
diving skies,
turning rocks and moving mountains...
#she is outdoors


We had to discontinue the WOMEN'S GEAR AWARD in summer 2023. With reflection and forward momentum, I am reaching out with an update from #she is outdoors. The WOMEN'S GEAR AWARD, which we passionately launched and saw grow, will not be continued. The decision, though difficult, ensures we maintain the integrity and credibility that our brands, jury, and community deserve.

This turning point brings us to a pivotal question for our industry: How can outdoor and sports brands achieve economic success in the women's market? We have not yet been able to answer this question, but we will for sure continue the conversation!

While we ponder this, I also want to extend my deepest gratitude to those who embraced our vision since 2021. Your enthusiasm and expertise have fueled a community that transcends the ordinary, highlighting what's possible through collaboration and shared values. Although this chapter concludes, the connections and insights gained are invaluable and enduring.



ALL WINNERS 2021-2023


We are very happy - and incredibly honored - to have had such a reputable and experienced jury!
