What should I wear?
On Cool Days
As they say layers, layers, layers…
Layer 1 – a tight fitting and thin underwear or mid-weight fleece. You do not want to wear cotton on the river. Cotton actually makes you colder. Try synthetic fibers, they maintain an isulative properties and when wet, and take moisture away from your body.
Layer 2 – most popular….. anything lyrca, spandex or nylon. We do have wet suits to rent, they are a farmer John type with a spray jacket.
Layer 3 – for the advanced white water rafter, a good paddling suit. loose enough to paddle without limitations.
Extras – a wool hat to keep the warmth in. Old tennis shoes or sandals with neoprene booties or socks, even water shoes will do
On Hot Days
Start with the basics – Shorts, T-Shirts, tank tops, Bathing suits these will try quickly after you get wet… and you will get wet.
Important extras – Sunglasses a cheap pair is best, you do not want to lose your best pair. A ball cap or visor to wear under your helmet. Don’t forget sunscreen for those bright sunny days.
On my feet – Old tennis shoes, sandals that strap to your feet, or a pair of water shoes.
