I know that everyone likes to be dry and warm on and off the river. Here are a few of my favorite pieces of dry land gear that I bring with me everywhere I go.

This is the only outer shell I'll be bringing with myself as I make my way south into Mexico and then Chile. With a pack away hood and fully waterproof breathable fabric you will probably catch me wearing this jacket at the take out, camping, or going out to get a beer with friends. Thanks Guys!"][/caption]

I've worn mine to bed (while camping) but the best use is under any dry gear that you will be useing on the river. Because there is no seperation between top and bottom you don't get that chilly water trickling down your spine that chills you down to the point of wanting to go home. Union Suit? Check.

There have been weeks where I live in these pants. Baggy enough to throw on over some board shorts if your getting to cold at the camp site. Classy enough to wear to the family reunion! "][/caption]
