Pit Viper was founded on a simple principle - sunglasses that can take a beating. In the spring of 2012 founder, Chuck Mumford, was traveling to the Teton Mountains for a ski touring adventure. Sunglasses being a very important part of touring trips, Chuck had his current "high-end sport" sunglasses in tow which quickly broke and left him looking for more. He started developing Pit Vipers in the Spring of 2012 as a rugged product that could be shot, sat on, shoved in pockets, run over, and mostly maintain their sun and wind bucking ability. Through the spring the tests were successful and it was time to give them some attitude. Being an accomplished artist, Chuck began painting the PV's to match his extreme lifestyle, and they looked damn good. Bottom line is that Pit Vipers may look like the most incredible thing in decades, but they are also highly functional sunglasses. They are the optimal blend of style and performance. Stoked to have Pit Viper on board with Smalls to the Wall 2020!

Both NRS and WRSI manufacture high-quality safety and rescue gear that whitewater paddlers rely on, world-wide.
In 1972, with only $2,000 in his personal savings, Bill Parks started Northwest River Supplies with one mission: to help others raft. 42 years later, Bill sold NRS to its employees. Today, the 100% employee-owned business strives to continue Bill’s legacy helping people pursue passions on the water.
WRSI was born from a commitment to providing paddlers with better safety gear, and has never wavered from that goal. True to their mission to keep more people safe, they have also kept the price of protection affordable.

The Turtlebox mission is to make the LOUDEST, rugged, portable speaker in the Market that is specifically built for the outdoors.
The first Turtlebox was born out of necessity. After breaking every “loud” product on the market through routine outdoor use, the idea of the Turtlebox was born in a garage, not as a business but just for personal use. Nothing else could get the job done.
Most portable speakers aren’t actually meant for the outdoors and can’t withstand the elements, the ones that can aren’t loud enough to be heard. When you’re at the beach or on an ATV, you need sound to carry in order to hear it over the wind, waves, and boat engines, you need a Turtlebox.
