Staying dry in SOT Kayak

5 posts in this topic

It's starting to get a little cold out and looking for a solution to keep my ass warm and dry as the temperatures slowing get colder.  What do you Kayak's wear to keep dry and warm?

 

Thanks and YES I always wear a life vest :)

I'll wear my wetsuit pants and on top of that I have a cheap frog togs pair of dry pants($20-$30), covered from splash and if I happen to fall in the wetsuit pants will keep me warm, I can also add layers if I feel needed.  I'm not particularly worried until the water temps drop a bit more though. The air is getting cold though so you will probably need to layer a bit.

You could go with layers for added warmth, but choose wisely, as the more you wear, the heavier they can become when saturated (or soaked if you happen to flip).

I like the thermal/fleece under a water resistant shell, and thermal top and a similar pullover top (hood optional).
