This section includes apparel designed to be worn both on and off the river. Insulative layers provide thermal protection to keep paddlers warm on the water and come in a variety of styles and fabrics. Neoprene, polypropylene, and wool have different advantages for diverse situations, but all share the ability to insulate against the cold even when wet. Paddling jackets and pants help guard against the elements, while dry tops, dry pants and dry suits offer the highest level of protection, keeping paddlers dry in even the harshest of conditions. Casual apparel keeps paddlers feeling comfortable and looking good at the take-out or at the bar after a sweet day on the water.
