NRS Europe: Welcome

Born among the rivers, lakes and oceans of the wild and beautiful northwestern United States, NRS has served paddlers in the U.S. and around the world with the finest equipment and apparel since 1972. NRS founder Bill Parks created the first purpose-built dry bag for paddling in 1974, the now-legendary Bill’s Bag. Other innovative products soon followed, and today we are the world’s leading manufacturer of professional-grade paddlesports gear.

In 2012, our team at NRS opened a distribution center in the Netherlands to better serve our European customers. With a network of over 100 specialty canoe and kayak shops throughout the EU, Norway and Great Britain, we are proud to provide the highest quality equipment and apparel at competitive prices to paddlers in Europe. We invite you to explore our complete European selection of inflatable boats and SUPs, dry suits, cags, water shoes, paddling gloves, buoyancy aids, dry bags, kayak accessories and water rescue supplies.
