Giving back to those giving their all: COVID-19 update

Joining Forces to Support Our Communities

Our Cascade Designs family of brands is truly inspired by the heroic efforts put forth by our communities during this crisis—from the medical responders to the grocery store employees. Resolved to help, we’ve joined forces and refocused our manufacturing muscle to assist with making protective gear. Like so many, we wish to give back to those giving their all.


100,000 Level 1 Surgical Masks

Our Seattle production team quickly shifted gears to sew medical masks in response to the shortage of PPE for health care professionals. On April 30, we met our goal of 100,000 masks! The materials were provided by Kaas Tailored and the masks have been going to 51 Providence Hospitals, as part of their 100 million mask challenge.


Safety Gowns for Firefighters

Firefighters protect our lives; we’re humbled to help protect theirs. Working with King County Emergency Management, we’re using Therm-a-Rest mattress materials to help make protective gowns for local firefighters. The durable material is easily disinfected after each call, making the gowns reusable. It also withstands the harsh environments firefighters face far better than disposable gowns.


As a family of brands, we know how critical it is to help one another. We’re grateful to be part of an incredible community of adventurers—regardless of which uniform you wear to work. From all of us at Therm-a-Rest, MSR, SealLine, Platypus and PackTowl, let's keep doing our part, so we can see each other on the trails once again.

About Us

About Us

Taste-Free & Adventure-Ready

Our mission is to offer the finest taste-free and adventure-ready hydration and water filtration products on the planet.

For over 20 years, we’ve made water bottles and hydration solutions for everyday hydration needs from the city to the trail.


We Believe in Making Things Right

We’re proud of the fact that we make the majority of our hydration solutions here in the U.S.A. in our own factory. And because we believe in what we make, and making it right, we have our own certified, world-class water laboratory, which enables us to research, develop, and test technologies so that you can have safe, effective, and dependable hydration and filtration options that meet your needs.


Who are we?

We are water geeks, laboratory technicians, researchers, designers, managers, directors, worker bees, and people with useful degrees...

…and we also like to laugh, pull pranks on each other, get outdoors and ride, hike, run, paddle, climb, rip, rail and try to enjoy every sip of adventure we can get.


Giving Back

We value doing our part to give back, so we not only support organizations like IMBA, Evergreen MTB, and the PCTA, but we get out and do trail work ourselves. We love what we do and where we do it, and we like to think that shows in what we make.

We’d love to hear from you—so please stay in touch via email or social, and we hope to see you out there!
