To our Cascade Designs family,

As the world changes rapidly around us, we hope that you are safe and able to enjoy the rejuvenation of the outdoors in a responsible way. Our teams at Therm-a-Rest, MSR, SealLine, Platypus and PackTowl are focused on protecting the health and wellbeing of our employees and that of our communities.

In these unprecedented times, our thoughts are with everyone personally affected by the spread of COVID-19 and we are grateful for the medical staff working on the frontlines.

As many of us operate from home, we’re also focused on being here for you. We’re working hard to continue to be your resource for information and inspiration. Our lines are open and our North American website is taking orders.

If you need a dose of adventure stoke, check out our brand blogs and YouTube channels for everything from gear maintenance tips to future trip ideas. Or just say hi to us on social.

As adventurers, we know things can go sideways fast, but it’s how we respond that makes all the difference. Right now, our ability to adapt and truly be there for each other like never before will allow us to navigate this extraordinary challenge and emerge even stronger—together.

From all of us at Cascade Designs, stay safe, stay creatively social, keep looking up.

About Us



GEAR PROTECTION YOU CAN COUNT ON


Originally developed for the maritime industry, our waterproof dry bags were made to meet the most demanding standards of gear protection. As avid paddlers and adventurers, we recognized the benefits those same levels of protection and performance could offer the paddling world.

With the introduction of our dual-strip closure design in 1986, we created the most waterproof roll-top dry bag closure on the market… and we’ve been making world-class, adventure-ready dry bags, sacks, packs, duffles and accessories ever since.

We make our gear because we believe that what you take with you on your adventures—clothes, sleeping bags, food, and equipment—deserves to stay protected, safe, and accessible. We also believe that you should be able to count on that protection, now and into the future.

MADE WITH PURPOSE, MADE WELL, MADE BY US


Since no adventure is the same, we selectively match materials, designs, and construction methods to make a diverse range of purpose-built products that prioritize durability, weight, packability, and visibility in different ways, providing you with “just right” protective gear ready for any adventure.

We believe in making our products well, so we’ve spent years expanding and refining our in-house engineering and manufacturing capabilities, making much of our gear in our own U.S. factory with our own RF welding machines and tools. As adventures and needs have evolved, so too have our capabilities and our products, and we’re proud to still make the best protective gear in the industry.

So, whether you need an ultra-durable dry bag that can withstand exposed conditions, an ultralight dry sack that protects and organizes gear within a larger pack, or a heavy-duty hauler to protect large amounts of gear over numerous portages and adventures… we have a well-made, dependable, purpose-designed protective solution for you.

WHO WE ARE


We’re regular paddlers, engineers, newbie SUPers, industry veterans, cold-water (and longing-for-warmer-water) surfers, skilled technicians, backpackers, designers, urban commuters, and more.

We’re united in our passion for making dependable, protective gear ready for any adventure—our simple mission is to ensure our gear protects your gear while you’re out adventuring.

We hope to see you out there!
