Top accessories for Kayakers

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 Bag

Throw bags should be replaced every few years, ideally, a kayaker has multiple that live in his or her boat.

Level Six
Quick Throw Pro Throwbag
NRS Pro Rescue Compact
Salamander Golden Retriever
60 Spectra Throw Bag


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.

What to fill it with? River guide maps, nose + ear plugs, a rescue knife, cam straps, river games, oh my!

Hydroskin Layers

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.
