The hassle of soggy and illegible paperwork has plagued outdoor professionals for decades. Our founder Jerry Darling developed the early version of Rite in the Rain paper to address that problem for the Pacific Northwest logging industry in the 1920's and our product has been evolving ever since.
Jerry has long since passed away but his vision is shared by our entire team. Still manufactured in Tacoma, Washington, USA Rite in the Rain paper is used around the globe in situations ranging from desert warfare to rainforest insect research.
The Silver family took the reins from Jerry in the late 1950's. Scott and Todd Silver, co-presidents, are committed to making the J.L. Darling Corporation one of the best places to work on the planet. Our growing team of craftsmen and women are the reason for our quality and share deeply in the success they create. It's only Rite, right!?
