Kokatat is a California based company that has been manufacturing paddling apparel and accessories in the United States since 1971. Today, they continue to evolve the development of the finest and driest paddling apparel in the world. They’ve donated a variety of prizes including PFDs and paddling apparel. We noticed many of their prizes already being used by KATS competitors during the event such as Kokatat’s Tempest Pants and of course their PFDs. Thanks for everything Kokatat!
