We are honored to announce that Kokatat is contributing to our expedition in Taiwan! Kokatat sponsors some of the biggest names and many of the burliest expeditions in paddlesports. Laura and I wear and love their technical paddling apparel and are flattered they want to be a part of Fearless Formosa.
In 1971, Steve O’Meara and his then-business partner Chuck Kennedy began manufacturing bivy sacks and down jackets. At the encouragement of some buddies, O’Meara developed the first paddling jacket and the rest is history. Forty-six years later, Kokatat is still at forefront of paddling apparel producing high-end life vests, dry wear, insulation, and sun protection.
Laura and I met up this weekend to work on our trip and couldn't resist trying on our new gear! Our paddling kit will include:
- Maximus Centurion PFDs to keep us afloat.
- Gore-tex Full Zip Jackets to keep us dry on land and at sea.
- SunCore Long Sleeve Shirts and Paddling Capris for lifestyling around Taiwan.
Laura and I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Kokatat. For more information on their product line, please visit: www.kokatat.com. When we return, expect a comprehensive review of how our kit handles on the water and during morning yoga!
