Day Trip Gear List

Dress in a few light layers rather than one heavy one. This will allow you to adjust easily to changing weather conditions or activity level. We recommend synthetic fibers such as polypropylene or nylon because of their ability to dry quickly and polyester fleece or merino wool for its ability to retain body heat when wet. You will put your feet in the water when getting in and out of the kayak, so be sure to wear footwear that you do not care about getting in saltwater. Wet suit booties, sandals with a strap, or old tennis shoes work well.
