What happens when you take pro kayakers Erik Boomer and Tyler Bradt, both just back from major expeditions, and turn them and their girlfriends loose in California with a pile of NRS gear, a cherry Volkswagen camper and a dream catcher from a gas station in Nevada? Parking tickets, for one. They also had a lot of fun and put a lot of miles on the latest NRS apparel, as well as the Westfalia.
Our approach to making clothes is simple: we make them for paddlers. Not for hikers, not for skiers, not for surfers, and not for urban trendsetters. We've learned through experience that although a shirt you wear hiking can work in a sea kayak too, it will eventually reveal itself as a fraud, whether it's a nagging seam, a clumsy button or a fabric that doesn't dry. We created this video to showcase what we think is the best paddling apparel for sun and immersion protection ever made -- NRS H2Core and NRS HydroSkin.
