Kokatat was the first company to create a piece of dry gear specific to boating and has been at the top of the game since. Originating as an outdoor and backpacking company to fulfill the founder's needs for high quality gear, Kokatat began producing paddling gear to replace the rain gear that was being worn by paddlers.
With a large portion of their product being manufactured in Arcata, California, Kokatat believes that keeping production local is necessary to control quality of product. Each Kokatat product is made with the highest quality standards and is backed with a lifetime guarantee against defects in manufacturing or materials. They stand behind their products with great customer service, repair, and warranty. Meaning "into the water" in the Klamath River Native American language, Kokatat makes the best gear for any type of paddler.
