Sea to Summit joins AAS for inaugural NAARS adventure racing season


Sea to Summit has been named the exclusive dry bag of the North American Adventure Racing Series (NAARS). NAARS is a premiere international adventure racing (AR) series which hold races all across North and Central America. The partnership between these two active companies will provide the series with dry bags for elite AR athletes as well as prizes for winning teams.

American Adventure Sports was founded in 1997 with the idea to create events and provide products that cultivate a passion for nature and activity. Since then, thousands of individuals have participated in AR events as a way to learn, grow and improve their lives through sport. American Adventure Sports first expanded its offerings in 2009 by opening a retail location in Indiana, PA to provide the tough-wearing outdoor and adventure gear needed by AR participants. The company continued to grow and moved to Greensburg, PA in 2012 where it also now houses a fully functioning in-house video production branch, supports a partnership with local universities, and operates an online store that provides top-of-the-line adventure racing and outdoor gear.

“Adventure racers go through some pretty brutal conditions during a race, so we could not ask for a better fitting sponsor for the inaugural season for NAARS,” said Doug Crytzer, Owner and Founder of American Adventure Sports. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer our athletes products from a sponsor which understands so well the need for quality, durable products able to live up to the rigors of the outdoors .”

The NAARS Coalition, consisting of dozens of race directors across the continent, is dedicated to creating synergy and positivity within the AR sport and providing opportunities for athletes and sponsors. As a part of that effort, Sea to Summit will act as an in-kind sponsor, providing Ultra-Sil® Nano dry bags for the winners of the NAARS Prime and Prestige level events and Stopper Dry Bags for athletes on the NAARS endorsed AR team, TeamSOG.
As American Adventure Sports continues to expand its retail operations, Sea to Summit products will be available at its current retail location in Greensburg and on its ecommerce site.

About Sea to Summit
In 1984, Tim Macartney-Snape climbed Mount Everest, but a few years later, he wasn’t fully satisfied with his trip. He realized that no one had ever actually climbed the entire 8,000 some meters of elevation of the tallest mountain in the world since they didn’t start at sea level. In 1990, Tim set off on foot from the Bay of Bengal across the plains towards the mountain on a journey that would become known as the “Sea to Summit” expedition. Four months later he reached the peak. Inspired by his voyage, Tim returned home to Australia and started a company with his fellow climbing friend, Roland Tyson, and started producing high-quality outdoor gear. To this day, Sea to Summit works hard to provide and produce some of the most innovative and affordable gear to outdoor enthusiasts across the globe. More information is available at
