The Reprisal is a unique, versatile watercraft that accommodates all types of kayakers, but more importantly, the Reprisal is the first of many products in the Osiris Outdoor catalog. A catalog that will disrupt the plastic industry's excessive production of virgin plastics and lead the charge for outdoor sports equipment to be made entirely from recycled plastics. The Reprisal is a no frills, extremely durable, and extremely versatile kayak. Built entirely from plastics that would otherwise enter the waste stream, the Reprisal is a champion of things to come in outdoor sports.
This product is made solely out of post consumer recycled plastics. No new (aka "virgin") plastics were generated to produce this kayak.Plastic Problem

A Look inside our name
Osiris is the ancient Egyptian god of the afterlife, resurrection, life, and vegetation. A suitable namesake for our "resurrected" plastics and eco-minded products.
The Plastic Problem
Plastics aren't the enemy. The overproduction of plastics, however, has certainly become a problem. Plastics freed us from the limits of nature. Created as a substitute for ivory, they had an immediate and profound impact on our world, helping both people and the environment. The focus on their worldly impact, however, has shifted drastically over the years, and the systems we assumed to be in place to mitigate the problems are being revealed as a farce. Let's break down the issue and expose the reality.

Big Plastic Has Controlled The recycling Narrative
recycled Plastic Isn't Cheap
Recycling plastics isn't a myth. It can happen, and does. The idea that it's actually occurring to the extent we all assume when we fill up our bins at home, however, is comical. For businesses it doesn't make as much sense in the short term to purchase recycled plastics. They cost too much. Profit margins are far better for companies who manufacture products using virgin plastics. As a result, the demand simply isn't there to stimulate a market for recycling and the plastics we recycle are destined to be nothing more than trash.
After all, what type of business intends to purposeful decrease profit margins?
Osiris Outdoor products are made entirely from recycled plastics. Recycled plastics will be the only resource we use and we will push endlessly for more sustainable plastic production. Our profit margins will be less than most equipment manufacturers in the short term, but we believe in the future of recycling. Our bet is... being the first company to use recycled materials exclusively will pay off.
