If you have one of Recreation Northwest’s LastBags– you know the quality and thoughtful design you can expect from one of our Alliance Members at eqpd gear. As a nimble design and manufacturing shop, our friends at eqpd were able to transition to making reusable masks. They converted their 2,200 sq/ft manufacturing facility to make Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for healthcare and frontline workers in response to the COVID-19 crisis. After the statewide “Stay at Home, Stay Safe” policy was implemented on March 23, 2020, eqpd was deemed a non-essential business and was forced to close operations. Owner Jonathan Baker recognized that his business could build an essential offering. Read full release.
The DailyMask is made by hand at eqpd gear HQ in Twisp, WA. They offer Bulk Ordering and Custom Branding. If you are an Alliance Member, let them know when you place your order and get a “Members ONLY” discount!
