History of the Canoe Paddle Sock & Kayak Paddle Bootie

How it all began...

Before Adanac Paddles became a business, we where making paddles for ourselves and friends. Back in the early 1980's we used to make covers for our paddles from felt, canvas and just about anything that would be thick enough to protect the paddles from bumps, and scraps that would likely occur, while being packed in the back of a truck, car, camper etc. enroute to our canoeing holiday trip.

It just made good sense to protect the investment of our paddles. So we would give one of these 'crude' covers with every paddle we made. This practice stayed with us throughout the years.

When Fleece became readily available at reasonable prices in the mid 1980's, we switched to it and the modern paddle sock was born.

Below is how we have evolved to our latest design of 2011.
