When you are going kayaking, there are probably going to be a bunch of different things that you keep in mind. You will know how to sit properly and how to use your paddles, you will keep your valuables with someone you trust and will never go kayaking alone because you know how dangerous it can be. But one thing that you might not be doing simply because you don’t realize the importance of it is wearing the right clothes.

The thing is, when we dress for something we tend to dress based on the weather. This is human nature, so if you are going outdoors to have a good time and you know that the weather is nice and sunny, you might wear some shorts and a t shirt because this is what would keep you comfortable in this sort of weather. That is all well and good but you should realize that kayaking is a little different from things like hiking. This is because when you go kayaking, you are supposed to dress according to the temperature of the water. During late autumn and early spring, the weather might be warm but the water is still going to be quite cold. If you dress for sunny weather, chances are that you will catch a cold or will just generally be very uncomfortable while you are kayaking.

When you read inflatable kayak reviews online you would see a lot of people mentioning the importance of clothing. This is done for good reason, because so many people just don’t realize how much difference there can be between the temperature of the water and the temperature of the air around you. Be careful and stay safe, kayaking is fun you wouldn’t want to ruin your experience.
