Easley, S.C. (August 3, 2011) – Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2011 will mark the first time that Bomber Gear will be available to retailers. The premium, authentic paddlesports brand will unveil new sprayskirts and technical apparel at Outdoor Retailer, which takes place Aug. 4-7, 2011 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

This past December, Confluence Watersports proudly announced that Bomber Gear joined its family of leading paddlesports brands. Since that time, Bomber Gear founder and now Product Development Manager for Softgoods and Accessories, Rick Franken, and his adoptive Bomber Gear team have been working on enhancements to the brand through cutting-edge design and innovation. Bomber Gear is in true form to drop on retailers this summer.

“Bomber Gear is in a great place; we couldn’t be more excited about the re-launch,” said Shelly Moore, VP of Sales for Confluence Watersports. “With the quality and performance attributes fine-tuned, we are thrilled to be able to offer retailers such high performance whitewater skirts and technical paddlesports apparel. Retailers can now turn to Confluence for their full spectrum of paddlesports needs.”

Stop by the Confluence Watersports booth #32077 to see Bomber Gear’s 2011-2012 line.

About Bomber Gear:
Bomber Gear was founded in Durango, Colo. in 1992, by expert kayaker Rick Franken. Franken bought his first sewing machine because he and a small group of adventure-seeking friends needed better gear. Better gear that let them push the limits and perform at their best while staying warm, dry and comfortable. The goal was to design and manufacture task-specific paddling gear that worked for everyone. Today, Bomber Gear is a premium, authentic paddlesports brand that continues to specialize in the design of performance whitewater skirts and technical paddlesports apparel.
