Blackstrap Industries Inc. of Bend, Oregon has appointed Outdoor Gear Canada (OGC) of St-Laurent, Québec, its exclusive Canadian distributor for winter products.

Blackstrap designs and manufactures a range of high-quality outdoor active accessories including their famous hoods and balaclavas. All of their products are manufactured in the U.S. featuring synthetic, moisture-wicking tri-blend fabrics, and technical construction designed to keep you in the outdoors.

OGC is a leading supplier of premium cycling and winter products. With other great brands in the mix such as Giro, OGC is now poised to supply protection from the neck up to the Winter Sports Market.

“We’re launching Blackstrap with our winter 2018-2019 program,” said Louis Boissinot, OGC`s Vice President, Sales. “Their commitment to very high-quality, technical fabrics and manufacturing is what appeals to us.”

“Our hard work and dedication to quality, design, and domestic manufacturing has paid off,” said Abe Shehadeh, President, and CEO of BlackStrap. “With OGC at the helm, we can now offer Canadian customers the finest quality products backed by superior customer service. It just makes sense.”

OGC will stock Blackstrap products in its Montréal and Vancouver warehouses beginning later this year.
