Drysuit neck and wrist gaskets can deteriorate over time, and in some cases may puncture or tear. Fortunately, repairing your own dry suit gaskets is easy if you know the proper techniques. Check out our how-to video and DIY this season. Don't worry, if you mess up, we know a guy that can do it for ya.

NRS has always been a hub for boating information, from river beta and gear hacks to maintenance and repairs. We love #ThirstyThursdays but before heading to happy hour, learn something new (or refresh your knowledge) with NRS’s #TipsyThursdays. Have a gear question or instructional need? We’ve got a handful of videos queued up but there’s always space for more. Leave us a comment with your how-to video suggestions.

Fun facts for this Wild and Scenic Wednesday were researched and written by First Descents:

Middle Fork Snoqualmie River, WA (Wild & Scenic circa 2014)

1. The Middle Fork is one of the longest sections of the Snoqualmie River beginning near La Bohn Gap and running for 27.4 miles.

2. The Middle Fork has one major waterfall flowing along its course, Nellie Falls. Dropping 150 total feet, this waterfall is part of the Alpine Wilderness Area.

3. Out of the three forks that comprise the Snoqualmie River, the Middle Fork generally has the best fishing where you can catch native fish like cutthroat trout and mountain whitefish.

4. Even though the logging industry is mostly gone from the Middle Fork region, you can still experience the area’s history by boat or foot. Along the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Trail you’ll see the old railway tracks that were used to pull logs out after timber harvests.

5. The Middle Fork is very close to metro Seattle (less than an hour’s drive) making it one of the most popular outdoor recreation destinations for kayakers, mountain bikers, fishermen, and hikers.

In the time it takes you to flip in Lochsa Falls, you could use American Whitewater's super easy form to stand up for Idaho rivers and the Wild and Scenic Rivers Acts.

The Forest Service is planning to strip these proposed protections from 89 rivers in the Lochsa, Selway, Clearwater and Salmon drainages through an illegal process they call "suitability." Wherever you live, now is the time to speak out to save some of Idaho's iconic whitewater tributaries. It literally takes 7 seconds!

Nothing ruins a river trip like a rogue boat and a marooned crew. We recommend a sand stake and a Taut-Line Hitch.

Fun facts for this Wild and Scenic Wednesday were researched and written by First Descents:

Sespe Creek, CA (Wild & Scenic circa 1992)

1. Sespe Creek is the last undammed river in Southern California.

2. The Sespe Wilderness—31.5 out of 61 miles of the river flows here—is part of the fourth largest roadless region in the lower 48 states, while still being the closest to a metropolitan area.

3. The name Sespe comes from the Chumash Native American Village which was situated near the river, named seqpe or sekpe, by the tribe, meaning kneecap.

4. The Sespe is one of Southern California’s last free-flowing southern steelhead trout streams.

5. The water of Sespe Creek can warm up by 20 degrees over the course of the day making April - June the best time to visit for a swim.

BOATERS: It's time we had The Talk.

No, not that Talk. (Although, we're all for making more boater babies.) We're referring to The Leave No Trace Talk. It's the conversation we all love to practice but hate to preach, but for the sake of our beloved rivers and lands, it has to be done on. every. trip. #LeaveNoTrace

About

Company overview
What draws us to water is what drives us at NRS. Dedicated to providing the equipment, expertise and inspiration that empowers adventure on the water.
Mission
NRS was founded on the idea that a positive approach to business could enhance the lives of its community of stakeholders while outperforming the cynical and exploitative practices of many conventional companies. This basic principle guides every aspect of our business, from product development to marketing to sales. Everything we do, and every decision we make, is focused on creating value for our customers, business partners and communities.

Since manufacturing the first purpose-built dry bag for boaters back in 1974, the NRS name has stood for rugged, reliable equipment built to the standards of our toughest customers: professional outfitters and guides. Outfitters around the world rely on NRS boats, frames, life jackets, apparel and accessories to keep their customers safe, their guides productive and their businesses healthy day after day, season after season.

Our legacy for providing professional-grade equipment informs every new NRS product design through a philosophy we call Ultimate Utility. Ultimate utility is about more than building rugged gear that gets the job done. It’s about purpose-driven, user-focused solutions that enhance experiences on the water. It’s about versatility for changing conditions and multiple activities, with the technical sophistication and visual appeal of the best outdoor gear for any sport. We design all our products in-house in Moscow, Idaho, and we use the gear we build.

At our Moscow, Idaho headquarters you’ll find passionate rafters, whitewater kayakers, sea kayakers, stand up paddlers, kayak anglers and fly fishermen whose lives and livelihoods are intimately connected with water. Our future depends on healthy waters where our customers and we can recreate, recharge and reconnect with nature.

We’re committed to preserving access to on-the-water recreation and to promoting stewardship of our precious wild places. We work closely with national organizations and local groups throughout the world to help take care of our rivers, lakes and oceans.
