Kayak clothing advice

Bieng 100% comfortable on the water  is important. Most don’t like being to be too warm or too cold. The nice thing with having a Farmer John wetsuit is you can always cool yourself down with water.(splash water on yourself) . Getting warm is easy as you can just throw on an extra 1mm wetsuit tops(Reef Fireskin) and a wind breaker (Stealth chill cheater) untill your are warm enough. Having a “modular system” where you can take off or put on gear  is in our opinion one of the better methods. Thus making sure you don’t get stuck out at sea being too cold or too hot! Cape weather is very unpredictable and  rarely is it as weather apps have predicted.
