A little bit more about us....

January 30, 2018

Okay, so here we go..... a few years ago my husband and I decided that some day we wanted to have our own business. We talked about it often but never really knew what that business was going to be. Fast forward a few years and we have two beautiful, energetic, smart, hilarious, I could go on but I'll stop there, children. Our son was four and going to preschool on Vancouver Island at an amazing preschool that focuses largely on outdoor play. Now being that he is as energetic as he is he was already outfitted for the first wet day of preschool with what I thought was sufficient wet weather gear. When I picked him up from school, I ran up and hugged him and held his little hands in mine and much to my dismay..... they were cold and damp. I of course went out and bought him a few pairs of gloves but day after day he came home with cold, wet hands. The solution to this was to find waterproof gloves but the problem was I couldn't find any that weren't thick winter gloves primarily used for snow. It was at that time that I decided that if I couldn't find them, then I would make make them! And so West Coast Bugs was born.


After over a year of product development we have created a solution to cold little fingers with these awesome gloves. We have also designed rain pants, our Wet Shield brand provides exceptional protection from the damp wet weather we deal with every day.


Our company has many more great products on the way that we cannot wait to share with you just as soon as we can find the time between hockey practice and picking dried rice off the couch cushions....... stay tuned!
