Aire's 10 year, no-fault warranty – the BEST in the business
"We are so confident in our boats that we back them up with the best warranty in the whitewater industry. Our warranty covers all the labor and material costs of fixing your boat, even when the damage happens off the river. If you have a problem, send your boat to AIRE and we will fix it for free within 10 years of the original purchase date. If it’s our fault, we’ll pay the return shipping."
In 1971, outdoor enthusiast and retailer Steve O’Meara decided to start making gear to support his habit of getting outside into the spectacular landscape that is Northern California: Redwoods, rivers, mountains and the sea. Following the introduction of a new waterproof fabric called GORE-TEX®, Steve decided to focus his company on one category of products: paddlesports apparel and gear. The company evolved to what we know today as “Kokatat”, a regional Native American word for “Into the Water”. Highly appropriate since Kokatat garments are meant for total immersion. Go ahead, pull that gasket over your head and be sure to zip that relief zipper all the way closed before you jump in.

From the beginning, Mad River Canoe explored new designs and experimented with new materials. We were the first to introduce Kevlar™ to the canoe industry and among the pioneers to first mold our own Royalex® canoes. We now offer a wider variety of hull designs than any other canoe manufacturer and continue to push ourselves and our designs to new levels of performance. Our efforts have been rewarded with competitions won, accolades earned (including 3 “Manufacturer of the Year” awards from Canoe & Kayak magazine) and, most importantly, a growing base of loyal customers.
At MEC, our aim is to provide quality gear and excellent value. We also want to minimize our environmental impact, by building products that last.
To do this, we take the time to test the materials and products we're developing so they will function and endure.
If your gear works season after season then we're really getting somewhere.

Founded in 1998, The Outfitters has grown to become a local leader in Newfoundland and Labrador supplying specialty clothing and equipment for self propelled outdoor adventures.
With Newfoundland being such a diverse mecca for outdoor adventures, owners Jonathan Earle and Robert Seymour identified a dire need for a local outdoor adventure shop specializing in hiking, light-weight camping, paddling, climbing, travel and winter adventure sports.
Handcrafted in the USA Since 1965. Over forty years ago Werner Furrer Sr. saw a need to design and build his own kayak paddles. His goal was to give his family more enjoyment as they explored the waters of the Pacific North West. Today, a short distance from where the first paddle was built in the family garage, Werner Paddles now calls Sultan Washington home. It is here that the employees of our design and production team handcraft the world's finest kayak, canoe and stand up paddles. It is these folks who pour their pride into every paddle to give our customers more enjoyment on the water. This pride and quality workmanship is evident every time you pick up a Werner Paddle.
