Sea Kayak Camping Gear List down arrow camping gear

Gear List: Alaska Sea Kayak Camping Tours

Important Note: Avoid Cotton when ever possible
Pangaea Adventures strongly advises following this clothing list closely.  We believe in the layering system and attempt to keep the packing lightweight, warm, and safe!  Cotton does not insulate well when wet!  If you find you need to purchase any of these items, remember they are all items you will be thankful you had both on this adventure as well as the next.  Valdez and Anchorage have sport shops to purchase these items, and the prices are usually comparable.  Visit our web site for a link to purchase items online!

What Pangaea Adventures Supplies:












Travelers are responsible for the following clothing and gear:


1-2 Pairs of long underwear, Polypro (no cotton)
2 Pairs of pants (1 comfortable light nylon or Polyester and 1 med weight fleece or polyester)

1 Rain jacket 100% waterproof, hooded (coated nylon is best with taped seems). See breathable fabric note below!
1 Pair of rain pants 100% waterproof (coated nylon is best with taped seems). See breathable fabric note below!
1-2 pairs warm gloves (wool or polypro gloves) (1-liner glove and one midweight glove)

(the rain hat can double as the sun hat)



Optional Items:













Important Note About Breathable Fabrics – Gore-tex and other so-called waterproof breathable fabrics are not waterproof enough to stay dry during long rainy days.  If you really want to bring a breathable jacket or pants, you MUST re-treat the outside of the garment with a new waterproof coating (DWR).  The DWR (durable water repellent) that your garment is treated with new will wear out in a short time.  Contact us for more information.

Bring extra clothes for before and after the tour.  You are welcome to bring any kind of comfortable clothing you wish for around town, but we cannot stress enough the importance of not wearing cotton on our tour.  Temperatures in town can range from the mid forties to lower eighties.  We will keep all extra items in town while out camping.  Visit our web site for links to buy gear online!
