Paddling Gear

Need a paddle? Look no further than Werner. Werner Paddles are a Puddledockers mainstay that stock our rental fleet and are in our own hands when we paddle for pleasure. These are the only paddles you will ever need.

Need a life jacket? We’ve got a wall of them. Puddledockers carries Coast Guard approved personal flotation devices from MTI and Astral Designs. Founded in 1991 with the express purpose of designing the right jackets for paddlesports, MTI has become an industry standard for life jackets made to get wet, not just sit in the bottom of a motorboat hold. Astral Designs prides itself on creating products that are both beautiful and necessary, and made with an eye to sustainability.

Thule Rack Systems

Thule is the country’s leading manufacturer of vehicle roof racks for kayaks, cargo, and more. Puddledockers carries a wide range of Thule products to help you get your watercraft of choice on top of your vehicle and on your way to the water. Our staff would love to help you pick out the right rack system for your needs and help with installation.

Thule racks are designed to make things happen: if you’re trying to get a big boat on a small car, if you’re a small person with a big car, or anything in between, Thule has a rack for you. It’s why we sell them, and why we use them.

Off The Water Activites

Paddling isn’t the only way to get out into the world and experience it, of course. Puddledockers also offers a range of hiking supplies to get you up mountains and down canyons. Vaude Backpacks provide clean design and green production; the Vaude factory in Germany meets ISO and bluesign standards for sustainability and many Vaude bags are completely PVC-free.

Darn Tough socks are a favorite of the crew here at Puddledockers.  These socks are 100% merino wool, made in Vermont, and have a lifetime guarantee.  Plus, they’ve got an adorable black lab for a mascot: what’s not to love?
