Salamander Caving Gear are designers, producers and marketers of specialized caving gear including clothing and accessories.

We are located in the Bay Area of Northern California.  The company grew out of the frustration of not being able to find good quality functional caving gear.  

We believe we can learn from other cavers, hence, should you have good ideas or wish to share feedback, please don't hesitate to let us know.

Sport Caving in the Chameleon Caving Suit

Mary Rose

We recently had a couple of customers use our suits on a trip through Church Cave, in Kings Canyon, California. This is a great sporting cave, with plenty of squeezing, crawling, climbing, and other fun; ambient temperature is in the mid-50's F; thanks to the ongoing drought in California, most of the normally-wet passages were dry.

In this cave, one of the Salamander cavers decided to go with a full-sleeve polypro underlayer, with the coverall sleeves retracted; another went with a lighter t-shirt underneath but full sleeve coverage. After doing a seven-hour through trip, both reported being happy with the temperature and protection tradeoffs. The hiking-pants mode came in handy, too, for the hike to and from the cave.

 Sometimes, you just gotta go sleeveless.

By the way, we'll be bringing our suits to Karstorama June 26, 27 & 28 -- please stop by our booth to check them out in person and try one on; we think you'll like what you see!
