A note to our community regarding COVID-19

Update: April 3, 2020

In support of the medical teams fighting to protect our health, we have transitioned our Seattle manufacturing to produce ASTM Level 1 masks for 51 hospitals in the Providence network. The materials are being provided by Kaas Tailored, and we’re humbled to join their efforts to meet the needs of the heroic healthcare community. All masks are allocated to aid in the personal protective equipment (PPE) shortage. We will not be selling masks directly at this time.

To our Cascade Designs family,

As the world changes rapidly around us, we hope that you are safe and able to enjoy the rejuvenation of the outdoors in a responsible way. Our teams at Therm-a-Rest, MSR, SealLine, Platypus and PackTowl are focused on protecting the health and wellbeing of our employees and that of our communities.

In these unprecedented times, our thoughts are with everyone personally affected by the spread of COVID-19 and we are grateful for the medical staff working on the frontlines.

As many of us operate from home, we’re also focused on being here for you. We’re working hard to continue to be your resource for information and inspiration. Our lines are open and our North American website is taking orders.

If you need a dose of adventure stoke, check out our brand blogs and YouTube channels for everything from gear maintenance tips to future trip ideas. Or just say hi to us on social.

As adventurers, we know things can go sideways fast, but it’s how we respond that makes all the difference. Right now, our ability to adapt and truly be there for each other like never before will allow us to navigate this extraordinary challenge and emerge even stronger—together.

From all of us at Cascade Designs, stay safe, stay creatively social, keep looking up.




We appreciate your interest and support for our family of brands. Therm-a-Rest, MSR, Platypus, SealLine, and PackTowl receive countless requests for sponsorships every day. More often than not, the brands are unable to meet those requests. Our brands work closely with athletes and organizations and many of our sponsorships have been allocated far in advance.

However, on rare occasion, we support unique and extraordinary efforts that relate to the sports and activities associated with our brands which show them in a positive light. We only offer product and do not offer any cash support for expeditions or programs. For your request to receive proper attention, please fill out a sponsorship application form and submit it along with supporting documentation (plans, timelines, environmental contributions, previous accomplishments, benefit to our brands, etc.).

In return for any potential support we expect high quality images and video, equipment feedback and written expedition reports to use in our various promotional and advertising channels.

Due to the large volume of requests we are unable to individually respond to each application. We will respond to requests we plan to support, but please allow up to four weeks for a response. If you need gear sooner, please apply for a Pro Deal. Again, we appreciate your time and interest and encourage you to fill out a pro form application to be included in our pro sales program.
