KokatatKokatat is a Supporting Partner of the ACA and the exclusive sponsor of the ACA's Instructor of the Month Recognition Program.

Kokatat has been manufacturing paddling gear in Arcata, California since 1971. At a time when many technical apparel brands were moving manufacturing offshore, Kokatat continued to invest in infrastructure in the United States. Kokatat founder Steve O'Meara was committed to the development of the finest and driest paddling apparel in the world and recognized the need to control and continually evolve the development of our dry wear.

In the early days, Kokatat worked closely with W.L. Gore & Associates, makers of GORE-TEX®, to refine the sewing and sealing techniques required for full immersion suits and tops. Today, our hands-on approach to manufacturing continues to set the standard in paddling apparel.

Kokatat is proud of our contribution to the local Humboldt County economy. More than 90% of our global sales are generated from apparel and accessories manufactured in Arcata (California). Our long term employees have developed skills and techniques unique in the industry.

Kokatat has been able to maintain a low carbon footprint, relative to many other brands of outdoor apparel that source goods offshore. In 2010 we activated one of the largest solar photovoltaic systems in the region, which powers much of our manufacturing equipment. We also employ strict water conservation practices throughout our factory. Named the 2010 Arcata Green Business of the Year, our company provides an established platform of green practices, social equity and economic vitality to the region.

Kokatat is an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 company. This certification validates our commitment to quality product and to providing industry leading customer satisfaction under the guidance of a quality management system.
