Fitting & Using the BADGER® Paddle Sock
 
Not only will the BADGER® Paddle Sock stretch to fit every BADGER® Canoe Paddle style available but it also fits many of the blade styles and widths made by other paddle makers and manufacturers as well. If your canoe paddle is 66” or less in length with a blade width of less then 9”, then this sock should nicely fit your canoe paddle.


And the sock slips on fast and easy providing your paddle the protection it needs in transport or storage.  They are also compact and lightweight & can be easily stuffed into a pack or pocket.

 

HOW IT WORKS...


NEW SOCK (2014): The Badger® Paddle Sock is an actual sock (like the ones you wear on your feet) and was knitted by a sock company in Toronto, Ontario.


Our suggestion is to slide the paddle into the sock grip first.

Next, PULL the excess sock over the blade tip, TWIST 2 to 3 times, and then FLIP the cuff back on itself. That’s it! Just pull, flip, twist, and you’re done!

The Badger® Paddle Sock fits all Badger® Canoe Paddle designs and many other paddles in your collection too!



OLD SOCK (2010 -DISCONTINUED):

As with our new sock, we recommend putting the paddle in grip first. and then pull the excess material down around the paddle blade and cinch tight to the blade using the elastic cord and barrel closure. (See image on right

 

OLD SOCKS AND NEW SOCKS: You can ALSO just pull the sock over your paddle and let the excess - if any - just flop FREE.* It’s really up to you. It also works putting your paddle into the sock blade first. What ever your preference ... It works & fits either way!



*Note: This method works best with taller paddles.
