Just a quick note to say that we’ve moved our shop from Cowichan Bay to Sointula! Our bags are available from our online store, in select shops on Vancouver Island, and at select markets on Vancouver Island. Stay tuned for more details.
We are super excited about 2022 as we continually improve our bags. As of now all of our products are designed and made in sunny Sointula, BC – a mini utopia on Malcolm Island off north Vancouver Island. Stop in on your next cruise to the north Vancouver Island. We will have tea and look at the mountains together in silence.
Thanks for your interest. We really appreciate your enthusiasm, and support.
The Marina Bag from Puddle Jump Bags features a Puddle Proof base. Our no seam construction makes the base of this bag 100% waterproof. Put your bag in up to 4″ of water and it will not leak. But if you are going to have a puddle proof bag your bag needs to stand up by itself. That is why we glue what we call “skis” to the base that give it enough structure to support itself even when empty. The skis also act as chafe protection at the corners. Why glue? Stitching would add tiny holes. No holes = no possibility of leaking. The perfect bag for your shore landings in a dinghy. #madeincanadaonvancouverisland
Puddle Jump Bags are optionally made with repurposed sailcloth.
Each sail is laid out and inspected. The useful fabric is cut into panels, soaked/treated, laundered, hang dried, and pressed all using eco-friendly products. Each bag retains some of the character of the original sail. Our upcycled products look better with age!
Do you have a spent sail you need to get rid of? We will trade you an Upcycled Marina Bag for your sail. We can even make your bag out of your old sail as a keepsake!
