An interesting glimpse behind the scenes of Kokatat with key employees discussing the changes and developments over the last 40 Years.
There is some nice video work in this short film – lovely scenery and location for Kokatat. It’s also interesting to see/hear from Kokatat Owner/President Steve O’Meara on how Kokatat began as a general Outdoor Equipment manufacturer then transitioned into one of the best known paddling clothing brands on the market.
Having been involved in paddling since the late 70’s it’s great to see some of the older designs of equipment and clothing featured in the video – certainly takes me back to my early days using Peter Storm cagoules and basic ribbed buoyancy aids, whilst paddling boats such as a Snipe.
Update: If you enjoyed this video, you might also want to take a look a a short post Helen Wilson has on her Greenland Or Bust website with photographs from a tour she took of the Kokatat Factory.
