We suggest you pack gear into 5, 10 or 15L dry sack, or sealed plastic bags inside a stuff sack to keep gear dry.

Clothing Suggestions

If it’s cold or wet, then you need materials that retain heat when wet and wick moisture from the skin like wool, fleece or polypropylene. Paddling jackets are ideal, but a windproof/waterproof shell will work fine.  For hot midday paddling, a light, long-sleeved shirt is great to keep the sun off. Have a warm sweater and pants for cooler weather. Specialized paddling clothes/gear add to your comfort, but aren’t necessary unless you intend to get serious. Our shops are full of top gear and clothing that we use ourselves.
