NEW PRODUCT - DRY SUITS

 "My first dry suit changed my life.  No longer terrified of a freezing swim, and just enjoying wet days and dry days, Grade 1, 2 and above, equally."

- Hugh Canard, Owner

Why do you Need a Dry Suit?

1.

Comfort

You will be warm & dry all day.

Why be miserable?  

2.

Safety

Cold can be a killer and just being cold will reduce your responses and skills.  

3.

Confidence

If you’re warm and you know a swim won’t be a problem, your confidence to try new things will improve.

DRY SUITS & NEW ZEALAND

We were thrilled with the performance of our Frontier pack rafts. We had worked closely with New Zealand engineer and paddling legend Hugh Canard to get the best boats for the race. Hugh arranged for our boats to be ultralight, slightly lengthened and self bailing. We felt like we comfortably out paddled the teams around us on the rivers in the race

In New Zealand most of our rivers and lakes are cold.  In a packraft you are going to get wet. If you have a self-bailer it’s definitely all the time. In a spray deck model it’s always a possibility.  

 

After equipping yourself with a packraft, a comfortable PFD, a helmet and a paddle, the next item is a dry suit.  Wetsuits are OK, but they’re not comfortable and they are very constricting.  


A dry suit will change your life.


If it’s not cold you’re still going to be wet and exposed.  If it’s cold or windy or the water is glacial, a dry suit is a game changer.  You just adjust the layering and you can wear your thermals underneath. 


Capsize? No problem.  Do a course, know what to do, and get back paddling without the fear of a freezing dip.
