The choice between a kayaking wetsuit or drysuit primarily depends on air and water temperatures. A kayak drysuit is the best choice in winter when the air and water temperatures are both cold. Whereas, a wetsuit is best when the water is cold but the air is warm.
What you wear under a wetsuit can be extraordinarily important. Clothes can be uncomfortable. They can wrinkle up under your wetsuit and even cause wetsuit rash. What you wear or don’t wear under a wetsuit really comes down to a matter of personal preference, hygiene, and public decency.
Proper care and storage of your Yulex and neoprene wetsuit will help extend its life for up to ten-plus years. But do you know how to take care of a modern wetsuit? Wetsuits have been rapidly evolving and with that comes a change in their care and storage.
Nothing puts a greater damper on your water sport activity than when wetsuit chafing builds in discomfort while trying to have fun. Wetsuit chafing can be relentless and the rash caused by it can last for days. Fortunately, there are some simple and effective ways to prevent wetsuit rash.
Old, worn-out neoprene clothing can be recycled, but not melted down for reuse like metals, glass, and plastic. Neoprene can be recycled, upcycled, or downcycled into other products. Unfortunately, neoprene is non-biodegradable and will end up in a landfill at some point in its life cycle.
If you take part in water sports or you’re interested in being more involved in water sports like kayaking, you’ve probably worn neoprene clothing or seen it used. Neoprene has been around since 1930 but that doesn’t mean it’s entirely safe.
Cold-water kayaking introduces the risk of hypothermia. Wetsuits, drysuits, dry tops, paddling jackets, semi-dry tops, dry pants, base layers, headwear, gloves, and footwear are used to protect a kayaker from cold water temperatures and maintain a healthy body temperature.
