Last year around this time I received helpful information from other members about gear for colder weather paddling. I want to extend the assistance to newer paddlers who might be thinking their paddling days have ended (and by the way, what did happen to the heat and humidity?) Atlantic Kayak Tours website has very helpful info about how to layer, and what to wear in various temp ranges. Bear in mind it's both air and water temps that are important. NRS has been a fairly reliable source of clothing and gear, and right now they are in their "Boaters Bucks" phase, which really just means you get 10% of this season's purchase price to use on next season's purchases (so maybe that's not such a big deal). Anyway, here are the links to the two web sites. I just ordered a hood (brain freeze is never much fun) and some base wear. I already have a Farmer Jane (wet suit) and a dry suit. Mittens or gloves are nice. Check out the AKT info and then figure out what you might need.
