Kayak Clothing Australia http://www.kayakshopaustralia.com.au/kayak-clothing/ “It's better to be hot and bothered than cold and emotional” - You can always cool down, but you can't always warm up! Clothing is a key consideration when going paddling - you must get this right in order to enjoy kayaking safely and make the most of your day paddle. The clothing Golden Rules - your kayak clothing should: Have NO COTTON - when it gets wet, it does not dry and remains cold and heavy! “Cold Cotton Kills!” NOT EVEN JOCKS or socks! When wet it must stay warm AND dry quickly! Blocks wind, sun, rain and sea spray! Protect from the unforgiving marine environment, such as rocks, barnacles and oysters, plus sand flies and mosquitoes that are found in the most beautiful kayaking locations! Be high visibility and reflective - you want to be seen by other water users day and night! Kayak Clothing Australia http://www.kayakshopaustralia.com.au/kayak-clothing/

  1. Great paddling hat 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jul 2022

    This hat is good for both Summer and Winter paddling. It stays on in the wind if you have it fully deployed. I never paddle without it.

  2. Well worth purchasing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Oct 2021

    Just received this hat and very happy - good quality material, large brim and provides full sun protection for the face, side of head and neck.

  3. Best paddling hat ever 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jul 2021

    This purchase was a replacement for our previous adapt-a-caps. They are light enough to wear on hot days and they protect from sun and wind. 100% recommend them.

  4. Perfect hat for sun protection. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Apr 2021

    I purchased this hat to wear when I’m kayaking with my mates, as my other one kept blowing away.
    Not only does it stay in place when I’m paddling, but it gives protection from the sun, above, and reflecting off the water.
    Now all my buddies are jealous and want one too!

  5. Adapt-A-Cap - Unbeatable! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Apr 2020

    I have used the fluro-yellow cap extensively over this summer covering some 850kms of paddling and have never suffered from any sun burn at all! Start out early in the morning and and use it as a legionnaire's hat then as the sun rises and gets reflected off the water, slip your head inside and tighten the draw string to cover everything up to your sunglasses - no sun-burn, no burnt and cracked lips. If the wind pops up just tighten the toggles on the back and nothing is removing it. I've bought a second cap for myself as a spare and a third for a mate who has skin that burns in the moonlight! He loves it. That broad, long visor is a real bonus as well.

  6. Perfect for exposure 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jan 2020

    Great for water, beach or snow where there is extreme UV exposure.
    Works well with large sunglasses.
    Bought it for multi day hikes, can reduce the amount of sunscreen, works well against flies and mosquitos.
    Not sure how well it works with a helmet, sorry.
