Typically the winter is the worst part of the year for those who like to spend a bit of time outside.
This is especially true for those that want to kayak year-round and have to contend with icy, dangerously cold rivers and rapids.
Anyone who has spent time in colder regions of the globe knows the golden rule, cover your hands, head, and feet.
You can venture for a neoprene cap which will keep your head warm even if the unfortunate happens and you end up in the water.
Kayaking mittens are going to give you the best insulation possible and keeping your fingers pressed together will offer added body heat.
You should still look to wear a few layers of non-cotton materials with it to ensure that you are fitted for the winter chill.
