Moosejaw, one of the top online retailers of outdoor apparel and equipment, has launched a new virtual reality app to offer unique interactive experiences for its customers.
Moosejaw Virtual Reality aims to help the retailer distinguish itself from its competitors by providing captivating content, along with games that give consumers a chance to win gear.
Immerse Yourself in the Great Outdoors
The app showcases stunning 360° views of Moab, Utah, through different experiences including trail running, rock climbing, backcountry hiking, and relaxing by the river. This last experience showcases plenty of fun – just what the wacky outdoor retailer is all about.
You can use the app with any virtual reality headset, but for consumers that don’t have one, they can still view the experiences on the YouTube app with a 360-degree view. If you’re after the full immersive experience, then you may want to take advantage the fact that they are currently offering their limited-edition cardboard Moosejaw VR viewers for free with orders over $49.
The retailer has gone all out with this app, working with world famous climbers and capturing clear footage to provide users with a fantastic immersive adventure. You can experience the ‘Bridging Moab’ rock climbing experience from the comforts of your own home, without worrying about getting dirty. Each experience lasts about three to four minutes and offers some pretty impressive action.
A Chance to Win Outdoors Gear
To further entice consumers, they are also offering a unique contest that gives you the opportunity to win free stuff. All you have to do is sign in, watch the videos, answer some questions correctly, and you are in for the chance to win gear from retailers such as Marmot, North Face, Patagonia, and Arcteryx, as well as a $500 Moosejaw Gift Card.
Earn badges and compete against others by answering the questions as quickly as you can, while making as few mistakes as possible. The questions are based on the experiences, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled while you are taking part as some of them are pretty tough.
A Unique Chance To Showcase Gear
For the retailer, it’s about much more than providing consumers with an awesome outdoors experience. The app also offers the company the opportunity to showcase some of its 2016 Summer Catalog in use. Products link back to the site, so if you see anything you like, you can easily find out how to get your hands on it.
For those that are having to put their outdoor plans on hold for the winter, the Moosejaw VR experience may just be enough to help get you through the cold months ahead. You can already get the app for free for your iPhone, but the Android version is still under development.
