Not just more gear, but more versatile gear


We`ve been working with YKK to add our signature to their reverse coil zipper. Here`s a preview of a size #5 zipper puller. It`s a great feeling to go from digital print to final prototype. This zipper is about to be built into a new Bluesmiths product to be produced in Canada. It`s called The Kula. From what our test crew says, this is going to be another game-changing Bluesmiths product. We hope you agree. 

We`re also about to introduce the Women`s Kanaha, a long sleeve hydrophobic water shirt crafted for ultimate performance and versatility both on and off the water. The Women`s Kanaha took a number of prototypes to get just right. We wanted the fit to be perfect. We think we got there finally. We`d like to say a big thanks to our Canadian factory partner who has had had to endure our obsessive tendencies for months as well as all of our friends at the Hawaiian Canoe Club in Maui who`ve been subject  to endless fit testing sessions, often after a hard training session on the water. Thank you all.

We`ll keep you informed of delivery dates as they near.
