Thermals For Canoeing & Kayaking

Thermal Tops, Bottoms and One-Piece Suits for all types of Paddlesport.

As a solution for keeping warm, dry and comfortable during the colder months, most paddlers wear thermal clothing underneath drysuits, paddling jackets, wetsuits or dry trousers. These paddling specific thermals are designed to be lightweight, and flexible to allow a full range of movement for unrestricted paddling strokes. They are also quick drying and unlike cotton materials, these microfibre fabrics will also keep the wearer warm, even when wet.


Included below is a selection of our most popular thermal base layers and rash vests for canoeing and kayaking. If you can't find what your looking for, please contact one of our members of staff on 01925 818437 to discuss your requirements.
