  • We have been a customer of Man of Rubber River Gear for roughly 20 years.  They are our primary supplier of most of our equipment we use for our rafting operation at Letchworth State Park.  Beth and her staff have always provided excellent customer service & their product lines are of the highest quality, yet very affordable.  The guides especially like the Mini Hurricane Turbo Raft Inflators.  They are vastly superior to all other brands.

  • For decades MoR has been the obvious choice for our business when it came to equipment orders.  Their prices, service and fast turn around makes ordering a breeze.  When we moved from being just rafting to a year round resort, Beth and her team graciously shared their intimate knowledge and helped us make our retail stores flourish and be profitable.  From full on store consult on layout, flow and merchandising, she helped us understand our target audience.  This is where MoR separates themselves from other suppliers.  Thanks for all the hand holding over the years Beth & Gary.  We appreciate you guys so much!
