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, the company operated in close proximity to the famous Numbers section of the Arkansas River. The focus ever since, has been on making the best possible product for comfort and safety in the wet and cold. As one of the first companies designing gear for paddlers and one of the few original designers left, Stohlquist continues to be one of the leaders with innovative products designed for the true water-lover.
