If you are searching for gifts kayakers will love any time of year, think about the following list of accessories and the condition of your favorite kayaker's gear. You just might find some awesome gift ideas for kayakers.
Throw bags should be replaced every few years, ideally, a kayaker has multiple that live in his or her boat.
Solid Mesh Duffel Bag
(Filled with other cool accessories? :) )
NRS Purest or Down River Large Duffel. Why? Kayakers need a bag to store gear in that also offers ventilation. Wet gear in a standard duffel gets gross while the mesh options allow your gear to breathe as you transport it. We recommend at least 60L-90L of bag to fit a normal kayakers gear setup.
For the days that you *almost* want to go skin to the wind, NRS hydroskin layers offer added warmth and protection from rocks while still providing a thin flexible material that won’t restrict motion.
Astral Brewer Water Shoes
The Astral Brewer 2.0 Men's Water Shoes (and the Astral Brewess 2.0 Women's Water Shoes) are designed with mesh fabric that is both stout and breathable. These water-ready river shoes are durable, lightweight, quick-drying and are superb at draining any water that may get inside your shoe while on the river.
You never need elbow pads until
you really need elbow pads.
Sweet Protection Elbow Pads
allow aspiring kayakers to push
their limits safely, protecting against
rocks and mank common to Colorado
creeks. There is nothing worse

Watershed Dry Bag
Watershed has a reputation for making the strongest, driest, most durable bags on the market. With a watershed, you can store your, camera, lunch, phone, keys and wallet with confidence knowing that regardless of what happens on the river, everything inside the bag will remain dry.
