Giving back to those giving their all: COVID-19 update
Joining Forces to Support Our Communities

Our Cascade Designs family of brands is truly inspired by the heroic efforts put forth by our communities during this crisis—from the medical responders to the grocery store employees. Resolved to help, we’ve joined forces and refocused our manufacturing muscle to assist with making protective gear. Like so many, we wish to give back to those giving their all.

100,000 Level 1 Surgical Masks

Our Seattle production team quickly shifted gears to sew medical masks in response to the shortage of PPE for health care professionals. On April 30, we met our goal of 100,000 masks! The materials were provided by Kaas Tailored and the masks have been going to 51 Providence Hospitals, as part of their 100 million mask challenge.

Safety Gowns for Firefighters

Firefighters protect our lives; we’re humbled to help protect theirs. Working with King County Emergency Management, we’re using Therm-a-Rest mattress materials to help make protective gowns for local firefighters. The durable material is easily disinfected after each call, making the gowns reusable. It also withstands the harsh environments firefighters face far better than disposable gowns.

Special Discount for Healthcare Workers

To express our immense thanks to the medical professionals working tirelessly to fight COVID-19, we're offering healthcare workers a special discount across all of our brands for the next year. If this includes you, please sign up here. And thank you for all you do!

PackTowl® Cloth Face Masks

Still need to join the mask movement? Grab a PackTowl washable, reusable face mask. Our team began sewing them for our employees, and now we've made them available to everyone. For every $5 mask sold, we're donating $1 to the CDP COVID-19 Response Fund supporting vulnerable populations impacted by the pandemic.

As a family of brands, we know how critical it is to help one another. We’re grateful to be part of an incredible community of adventurers—regardless of which uniform you wear to work. From all of us at Therm-a-Rest, MSR, SealLine, Platypus and PackTowl, let's keep doing our part, so we can see each other on the trails once again.




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.
