Stohlquist products are the result of a lifetime of hands-on paddling, entrepreneurial spirit, craftsmanship and design experience of the company founder and president, Jim Stohlquist. Each model they offer follows the lineage of 30 years of product innovation, refinement, incorporating the latest in raw material development, and manufacturing know-how to provide their customers with the best WaterWare available today.
From the early days, Stohlquist has been a family company. Based in Buena Vista, Colorado, Stohlquist operated in close proximity to the famous "Numbers" section of the Arkansas River. The focus has since been on making the best possible product for comfort and safety in wet and cold environments. As one of the first companies designing gear for paddlers and one of the few original designers left, Stohlquist continues to lead with innovative products designed for the true water-lover.
