We recently updated our fire pan wrap! It is now made with PVC instead of the thick cotton duct. It is even sturdier and won't stay wet. So far we have gotten rave reviews on the new material, and our employees say it's even better than the old wrap.
On the subject of price, it's true, we do have to charge a little more for our gear... but we actually have a very small profit margin on the stuff that we make. That is simply because not only do we hand make everything right here in Salida, CO, we pay our employees a living wage, and we double up both the fabric and stitching on everything. (That's what makes our gear so tough!) All our mesh products are double walled, and all abrasion spots are reinforced. Twice as much material and time goes into every piece of Tuff River Stuff gear, because we want it to last as long as possible!
