For those of you that know a little something about me, I love to kayak. When I was younger I went to summer camp in North Carolina and learned the basics of canoeing and kayaking. This year, my fiancée and I purchased our first set of fishing kayaks (because we also like to fish!). Here are my current top 5 clothing and accessory items that I am wearing on every kayak adventure to beat the coastal heat!
I may earn a commission from items purchased from this list.
#2: NIKE TEMPO SHORTS:
Affectionately called “Norts,” these shorts are a staple in my outdoor summer wear. While not technically fast dry, the shorts really do dry quickly and help keep you cool in the heat.
#3: SHEFIT Ultimate Sports Bra
If you are having to intensely paddle (or do any other high impact sport), a supportive sports bra is a necessity. One of the best things about the SHEFIT bras is they come in multiple impact levels and are fully adjustable. You can also double these as a bathing suit top for those hot days. I own three of these in both medium and high impact and they are my favorite bra not only for workouts/paddling but for everyday wear as well.
#4 Polarized Sunglasses
These glasses by extremist are great for the water. The low price point makes them extremely affordable but also won’t make you pull your hair out of you accidentally lose them while floating down the river. They come in multiple colors and the neutral shape looks great on most face shapes!
Okay so hear me out – Crocs get a bad rep but they are the easiest waterproof shoe. We all know the traditional Croc (found here) that spurred memes but Crocs truly have elevated to new and fun styles. My personal favorite right now is the Two-Strap Slide. They are super comfortable and stay on your feet (or off if you prefer!).
I hope you enjoy my recommendations! If you have any favorites – let me know in the comments below!
