Level Six paddling gear and apparel company originated in 1997 by Olympic and National Canoe and Kayak team members, Tyler Lawlor and Stig Larsson. Based in Ottawa, Ontario, the duo took the last eight years to perfect its Emperor dry suit. But for next year, the Emperor has given birth to the brand new Triton and Orion dry suits, which will be a part of Level Six’s 2014 line of gear. The Triton and Orion dry suits will be revealed for the first time at the 2013 Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Expo in Salt Lake City at the end of the month.
The Triton – Dry Suit
The Triton is a dry suit built for the roughest of conditions. It boasts a new, wide shoulder entry that allows for easier access. The Triton is a full-featured, waterproof, breathable dry suit with bi-layer reinforced panels and also with 3-ply Exhaust fabric. Level Six has high hopes for this brand new, affordable dry suit and is confident that their quality, price, and function will take the paddling world by storm. $849.99 MSRP
The Orion – Multi-Purpose Dry Suit
The Orion is a leading edge concept for Level Six and was built with the adventurous multi-purpose paddler in mind. The company wanted to fill the demand for a light-weight dry suit that protects paddlers from the elements while allowing them to be more comfortable. The Orion multi-sport dry suit was built for SUP enthusiast and also for paddlers who want to spend a comfortable day in a sea kayak or who want go fishing during a rainy weekend on the lake. Comfort and utility was the main focus during Level Six’s design process for the Orion. It’s a full-featured dry suit without a latex neck gasket, made with 2.5 ply Exhaust fabric. $649.99 MSRP
“We have expanded our contribution to the SUP world by introducing the Orion dry suit into the market. Level Six has naturally progressed in its designs over the years to compliment the SUP niche with products like the popular Sup Rider moisture-wicking active wear. The Orion is our next big innovation since we introduced our Hydro-Shield technology in our SUP Rider line,” said Level Six Co-Owner Stig Larsson.
