Oveja Negra


Oveja Negra designs, manufactures, and sells top-shelf bikepacking bags out of our fun and bustling factory in Salida, CO. We are 16 people and 20 machines working our tails off to provide the best bags and customer service to our riders worldwide.

In short, Black Sheep. We love our home in Southern Colorado, and the American West is so heavily influenced by its Spanish roots that we decided the Spanish translation to "Oveja Negra" was a good fit. We embrace being the black sheep of the biking and manufacturing worlds. 


Padworks is a Buena Vista based business specializing in manufacturing products for the river running, car camping and commercial ski area communities. We make sleeping pads, cooler cover pads and a wide variety of custom vinyl & foam related items. Our goal is providing the best possible products designed with function and durability in mind. Stop by our booth for more information about how we’re keeping materials out of the landfill.

Gnarcissist Gear


B Fresh Gear

Hi, we 're b fresh gear! A typical day around here consists of designing fanny packs, sippin' capri suns, and lol'ing at classic episodes of the simpsons. In our club-house you 'll find an n64; but be warned, our staff will serve you at bond, blitz, or mario kart. We practice weekly! During breaks, you can find us at the loading dock engaged in a high stakes, winner-takes-all game of pogs. You could say we know how to have some flippin' fun! We believe disagreements should be settled over a one-on-one game of nerf hoops. From design to production, that little styrofoam ball never lies!

Lonewolf Collective



Throughout my life, I have had an overwhelming urge to create. I have explored many different art techniques that somehow lead me down the path to working with metal and discovering chainmaille.  I use ancient chainmaille techniques to create modern and bold designs. Welcome to my world and vision, of color, fine art, unique jewelry and various other creations. All chainmaille is handwoven by myself, right here in the Heart of the Rockies. -Alyssa Dyane Boland, Metalyssa

The UNspilt

A drink holder that actually works - even on textured surfaces - like inflatable paddleboards, rafts, cooler lids, and even diamond plate!  Never worry about losing or spilling your drink again. 


Invented by a paddler for paddlers, The UNspilt® will keep your drink super insulated, secure, and easy to access.  From flat water to rapids, or just chillin’ by the campfire, your beverage is guaranteed to be where you want it, when you want it!


We are a small local business and I hand build every UNspilt® right here in Colorado. Being a part of the outdoor community is one of my favorite things. I love encouraging people to  get outside, spend time with friends, enjoy the fresh air… and stay hydrated while they’re at it!  

Can’t wait to see you at FIBArk!  Please swing by our booth to say hello and try out The

UNspilt®…  Plus, you can take advantage of the special 20% event-only discount! We’re the ones with the bright orange canopy.  Look forward to meeting you there!

Zach Otte

I have guided fly fishing and white water rafting in the US., Patagonia, the Amazon, and under the Himalayas in India. | have volunteered with various river organizations, studied plant medicine in the Amazon, and have thrown flies to some of the most engaging fish on earth. | did not attend art school, and in fact, | never even considered painting until a few years ago. What | paint comes from a lifetime spent on the water and from my love of these animals and places.

Greek Flame Food 

Greek Flame Foods was established in 1978 by my parents Bob and Tina Kasselakis.  Emigrants from Greece, they shared their passion for Greek Cuisine with the public by showcasing at various events.  At the age of five years old I would help in the business with various tasks surrounding food prep.  After graduating College and finishing my Military service, I took over the business in 1996 and together with my wife and kids have had the joy of continuing the tradition my parents had begun in 1978.
