What to Wear on the River
Thermal underwear / base layers
Warm fleece top / wool sweater
Fleece pants / extra long johns
Thick wool socks / hiking socks (at least 1 pair)
AVOID COTTON. As you are paddling down the river you are going to sweat. When cotton gets wet, it makes you cold.
Fleece, wool, and synthetics are the best materials to wear because when they get wet, they keep your body warm. If you only have cotton, we can still make it work!
What to bring
Dry clothes for after the river
Any necessary medications (asthma inhalers, etc.)
Waterproof camera (optional)
