Rarely, in the Pacific Northwests' glacier-filled rivers, do I ever get to enjoy wearing a shorty drytop and shorts, especially when I paddle Class IV/V rivers. The water temperature is frigid and I like to dress for that occasional swim and/or rescue. My typical gear for these cold, canyoned rivers is my drytop and splashpants or my drysuit (which is overkill in 90 degree weather).
BUT NO MORE . . . My new favorite "SUMMER" paddle short is the Level Six Neoprene lined capri (they are a "men's only" short ~ fyi). Typical of all the other L6 gear, I love this short because of its' style. I can see these shorts being perfect for personal paddling days, teaching kayaking and chill days doing stand up paddle boarding. They seem super ideal for the raft guide, too!
So even though there is only one river that I can enjoy a shorty drytop on here in the Northwest, I can now enjoy multiple rivers this summer in some rad shorts and know that I will stay warm.
Thanks Level Six . . . always moving forward!
