The Rite in the Rain story began when Jerry Darling almost a century ago , had an epiphany, the logging industry’s need for a durable material that could be written on durable enough in poor weather conditions especially the rain.
Jerry developed a coating from home that created a moisture shield on the hand-dipped sheets of paper. From this the beginning of the first all-weather paper. Over the many years we’ve perfected and patented our environmentally responsible coating process. Still located in Tacoma, our continued mission is to provide innovative products for professionals and enthusiasts who brave the outdoors.
