Descend on Bend: A Nomadic Gathering Of Life-Living Enthusiasts

Descend on Bend is an annual four-day gathering of like-minded, creative, life-living outdoor enthusiasts who share the same passion for van life, overlanding, and other vehicle dwellings just outside of Bend, OR. This gathering has taken place for many years and grows in popularity and attendance every year, which is now known to be one of the largest gatherings of its kind with over a 1,000 registered vehicles.

BlackStrap sponsored the 2021 gathering by providing some rad, one-of-a-kind custom Descend on Bend UV multifunctional headbands and Daily Tube neck gaiters to the event's staff and friends. We also joined the festivities and experienced the magic of this community-building event firsthand while giving out 100s of free headbands, beanies, and neck gaiters to its attendees.
