Meet Our Gear Specialists - Steven "Leon"
Get to Know Steven "Leon"
Steven “Leon” Lutz spent a good deal of his childhood and adolescence growing up on a campground surrounded by 87 acres of forests, creeks, and open fields. Having few neighbors, he and his sister (and their dogs) could usually be found roaming in the woods, climbing trees, paddling boats, or splashing about in the pond. Those early years led to a lifelong love of hiking, camping and backpacking and eventually branched out to traveling, kayaking, bouldering, and trail running too.
Little has changed over the years except his beard has grown a little longer and he is now often accompanied by his wife, Lindsay, and his two nature-loving daughters, Lily and Piper Bea, both of whom inherited his fascination with wading in creeks and turning over rocks looking for frogs, salamanders, and other creatures.
