Hello fellow buzzard boaters! River Rat Ray and TuffRiverStuff are happy to announce that we finally have a presence here on the Mountain Buzz! We know TRS often comes up in buzz discussions, and so wanted to let you all know that we are here to answer questions, give feedback, talk gear, and just generally be there for the paddling community.
If you're not familiar with TRS, feel free to take a browse through our web site tuffriverstuff.com to get a feel for what we do. The long and the short of it is that we make tough river stuff... rigging supplies, camping gear, custom orders, repairs... all made (yup) super tough. Drop us a line any time if you ever have any questions we might be able to help you with, also if you are ever in Salida, CO please stop by the shop to meet Ray and see where the magic happens! Happy boating! SYOTR!

Over several decades now, Ray has been making items for me and my rafts. None of it is even close to showing wear after a ton of use (I am retired and boat year round some where). Bottom line if Ray does not already make it, describe what you want and he will do it custom. A good man and good products.

bought one of Ray's very first bags, use it to haul straps, beer, ect. it's 15 years old, saw a good 7-8 years of commercial guiding. gotta have 700+ days on it. i'm thinking it will last another 10 years. his new stuff is 5x better. it's amazing how over engineered TRS gear is. seeing how his old gear will last in the 25 year range the new stuff will literally last forever, i will be passing it on to the kids one day. plus Ray stands behind his gear. hanging out in the shop one day a guy comes in with a bag that he had ripped. Ray fixed it, the guy wanted to pay him something because the rip was his fault, Ray told him "never charged to fix my gear, ain't gonna start now." plus he pays his employee's a living wage. good guy and a great company.

Wow! Thank you all so much for the warm welcome & great reviews! We are certainly happy to be here, and are glad that you're all happy we're here! As many of you seem to know (& love) the gear we make, remember that you can order any of Ray's goods on line any time! We always love to see smiling faces in the shop, but if you can't make it to Salida you can still get the gear you need. Also, I wanted to remind everyone that we do gasket repairs as well! Winter is a good time to send in your blown out gaskets for us to replace, so that your dry gear will be in tip top shape come spring runoff. Thanks again for all the love buzzards! Stoked to be here!

Thanks! Yeah, our everything bag© is one of our signature products!(And really does turn rigging into a whole new world of Awesome!) :D

Also, I want to apologize, I posted when our web site was down the other night and then neglected to post that we are back on line... So yeah, we are up & running & fully functional in the world of the interwebs!

Nothing better than the everything bag. I've seen some cheap imitations. They don't stack up to the everything bag. The best single investment I have made.

Do you make a bag for the Partner 2 burner folding stove?
We absolutely can! However, what we are capable of making would be a carrying case/ padded protective case... if you are looking to keep it dry we still recommend putting it in a dry bag. That being said, if you are still interested in a padded/carrying case for it, then please do give us call & we'll talk about what you want & how to make one up for you! 719-539-5444 :)
