One of the most common questions we get from guests who have just finished reviewing the packing guide in our Trip Packets is, "Wait… why do I need rain gear?"
Most people figure if they’re going rafting on a river wetness is part of the package. They aren’t wrong. But, here are 3 reasons we strongly recommend you bring the gear anyway.
So, what kind of rain gear do you need on a Colorado River rafting trip? Here’s a checklist to help you ensure you’ve chosen the best style:
___ 2 pieces (jacket and pants)
___ completely waterproof (not just water resistant)
___ jacket has hood that cinches closed
___ jacket sleeves stretch tight around your wrists
___ pant cuffs stretch tight (so no water can get up them)
Great gear = great trip! So get the good stuff, then get out there and enjoy the water (or not)!
