  • Spare gear: sweater, long pants, t-shirt, shorts
  • Footwear: closed toes shoes (ideally) that can get wet. You must wear footwear at all times.

 Clothing Suggestions:

If it’s cold or wet, then you need materials that retain heat when wet and wick moisture away from the skin, such as 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 they aren’t necessary unless you intend to get serious. Our shops are full of top gear and clothing that we use ourselves.
