Our Love, Our History

Bob Holtzman, President, Mythic Gear

We're paddlers. There is nothing we enjoy more than being on the water. Whether it's a remote pond, a whitewater river or on the coast, we treasure the feel of the paddle in our hands, the movement of the water, the freedom and release of physical activity and the emotional fulfillment of interacting with nature.

Founder Bob Holtzman got into the drysuit business when he needed one himself but couldn't justifying paying the high prices that the established drysuit companies demanded. He researched their products and discovered that virtually every drysuit on the market was substantially over-engineered – that is to say, they're better than they have to be for most paddlers. It was as if you needed a garden spade but only bulldozers were available. Bob decided to offer the garden spade of drysuits: simple, effective and inexpensive.

About our name? We just enjoy the myths of many cultures, and we think "Mythic" reflects the spirit of adventure and the magic of nature that paddlers treasure.
