ARCATA, California — If you’re planning on attending the Paddlesports Retailer Show being held this month in Oklahoma City, make sure you put a visit to the Kokatat booth on your “To Do” list. Kokatat will be running a special promotion at the trade show, selling custom versions of their new Huck 50’ throw bag with proceeds earmarked for American Whitewater – a national river conservation nonprofit.

Available at the Kokatat booth (V2) during the show Aug. 27-29, the Huck 50’ throw bags will be available in customizable colors. These special custom bags, come with 50 feet of ¼-inch Spectra rope.

The bags will be sold for $40, with all proceeds being donated to American Whitewater, the primary advocate for the preservation and protection of whitewater rivers throughout the United States.

Deepening their commitment to providing high-end rescue gear for paddlers, Kokatat introduced the new Huck 50’ and 70’ throw bags at Outdoor Retailer. With quick-drying mesh top, foam side panels and reflective piping, the Huck bags are mated with 500D Cordura® stiff enough to allow for easy stuffing of the rope after each use. The Huck 50’ is the perfect option for paddlers who place a premium on being prepared for any situation while on the water.

About Kokatat Inc.

Kokatat has been manufacturing paddling gear in Arcata, California, for almost 50 years. At a time when many technical apparel brands were moving manufacturing offshore, Kokatat continued to invest in infrastructure in the United States. Kokatat founder Steve O’Meara was committed to the development of the finest and driest paddling apparel in the world and recognized the need to control and continually evolve the development of our dry wear. In the early days, Kokatat worked closely with W.L. Gore & Associates, makers of GORE-TEX®, to refine the sewing and sealing techniques required for full immersion suits and tops. Today, our hands-on approach to manufacturing continues to set the standard in paddling apparel. Into the water with Kokatat! Learn more at www.kokatat.com.
