Kayaking: A great way to stay in shape and keep cool this summer

Looking to spend some time outside this summer, but dreading the hot summer heat? Kayaking is the best way to enjoy the great outdoors when the temperatures rise. Plus, you get build up your shoulders, arms, back and ab muscles while you're out having fun.

Dagger's ROAM Kayak is a do-it-all sit-on-top kayak designed for adventurers who want to paddle on rivers, in the ocean or on mountain lakes. 

Wilderness Systems' new Pungo UL (UltraLite) is perfect boat for paddlers of all levels and it's maneuverable, easy to paddle and light weight enough for one person to carry it down to the water.

Bomber Gear's new Baja UV Protection Shirt will keep the sunburn away and help regulate your body temperature, whether you're out in the blazing sun or enjoying the beach on an overcast day. With UPF 50 built into the Polartec ® Power Grid ® material, the Baja will keep your skin dry and protect you from the elements.

For paddlers looking to advance their skills and paddle bigger rapids, the Bomber Gear Palguin Dry Top made with Polartec ® Neoshell ® is lightweight, extremely comfortable ergonomically designed for a paddler's movements. It  will keep you protected from the cold water without leaving you drenched in sweat. 

No kayaker wants to get stuck up a creek without a paddle and the Adventure Technology Hercules Carbon paddle is practically unbreakable. Made with AT's Duraweave ® technology the Hercules is extremely durable, abrasion resistant and light weight. Additionally, it has a secondary strength rating that allows it to keep functioning even after you run a Class V rapid and smash it against a few rocks.
