Paddling Gear Made Responsibly

Neoprene

The neoprene our gear is made from uses limestone to replace petrochemicals. Carbon black, a main component of neoprene is now made from scrap tires. Dope-dyeing infuses dye pigment into the molten plastic solution to create colored yarn without dyeing. This saves water and reduces energy consumption.

The Polyester shell fabric used on our dry suits and dry tops is made 100% from recycled water bottles. Polyester fleece used in our thick skin line is 29% recycled. We use bluesign® certified and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 materials wherever possible.

Repairs

Our repair department processes hundreds of support tickets annually. Many support tickets include maintenance and repairs to multiple garments. We have repair shops located in White Salmon, WA and Confluence, PA to cut down on cross country shipping. By offering repairs to all brands of gear we’re able to keep your kit in service longer and out of a landfill.

Shipping

Our shipping department reuses as many boxes as they can. If your gear shows up in a box that looks like it’s made several trips it’s because we’re working hard to cut down on waste and energy.
