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?
You will be warm & dry all day.
Why be miserable?
Cold can be a killer and just being cold will reduce your responses and skills.
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
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.
