Giving back to those giving their all: COVID-19 update

Joining Forces to Support Our Communities

Our Cascade Designs family of brands is truly inspired by the heroic efforts put forth by our communities during this crisis—from the medical responders to the grocery store employees. Resolved to help, we’ve joined forces and refocused our manufacturing muscle to assist with making protective gear. Like so many, we wish to give back to those giving their all.


100,000 Level 1 Surgical Masks

Our Seattle production team quickly shifted gears to sew medical masks in response to the shortage of PPE for health care professionals. On April 30, we met our goal of 100,000 masks! The materials were provided by Kaas Tailored and the masks have been going to 51 Providence Hospitals, as part of their 100 million mask challenge.


Safety Gowns for Firefighters

Firefighters protect our lives; we’re humbled to help protect theirs. Working with King County Emergency Management, we’re using Therm-a-Rest mattress materials to help make protective gowns for local firefighters. The durable material is easily disinfected after each call, making the gowns reusable. It also withstands the harsh environments firefighters face far better than disposable gowns.


Special Discount for Healthcare Workers

To express our immense thanks to the medical professionals working tirelessly to fight COVID-19, we're offering healthcare workers a special discount across all of our brands for the next year. If this includes you, please sign up here. And thank you for all you do!


PackTowl® Cloth Face Masks

Still need to join the mask movement? Grab a PackTowl washable, reusable face mask. Our team began sewing them for our employees, and now we've made them available to everyone. For every $5 mask sold, we're donating $1 to the CDP COVID-19 Response Fund supporting vulnerable populations impacted by the pandemic.

As a family of brands, we know how critical it is to help one another. We’re grateful to be part of an incredible community of adventurers—regardless of which uniform you wear to work. From all of us at Therm-a-Rest, MSR, SealLine, Platypus and PackTowl, let's keep doing our part, so we can see each other on the trails once again.

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!
