LowerGear.com is just one of the family of web sites owned and operated by Mast Advertising & Publishing, Inc, the parent company's awkward, but legal, name. Mast has been around since 1959, and has served hundreds of thousands of customers nationwide; probably you can count on us too. Check online, you won't find any negative reviews on us - except for that one Yelper we really irritated some time back - but that's not bad considering as long as we've been around. My family wishes they only had one complaint against me in the last half century. And, in our spare time we are occasionally still in the print advertising and publishing business - for 60+ years now.
Peppered throughout the text on the site are tales with references to "me", "I", "we", etc. That would be me, Dallas Shewmaker, owner of Mast, this site, and your basic hiker, kayaker and backpacker whenever I can get out of the office. I get the credit or blame for whatever you see here or experience while doing business with us. See my story here. Want to send me an e-mail? Reach me on our Contact Us page; it will go straight to me. Call us, and there's a good chance I'll answer the phone - listen for the Southern drawl that the AZ sun hasn't quite dried out yet.
And just in case we didn't have enough going on, we also own a retail store in Lake Havasu, featuring Hobie Kayaks for sale and rent (no camping gear rentals). On Lake Havasu we're known as Southwest Kayaks, 423 English Village, Lake Havasu City 86403. (928)680-9257
At either location, our expert staff has walked and talked what we carry, and is glad to help you with your gear, kayak or GPS selection process to make sure you have the best experience possible. We also have lots of help resources on this site; start here to look for answers. Or, just drop us an email with your inquiry and contact information or a good time to call you on the phone if you prefer. Give us a couple of hours - we might just have to come in from the trail before we get back with you!
