At just over 100 bucks, this lightweight yet fully waterproof dry jacket makes an awesome gift. Perfect for spring and summer paddles, the Stratos Shorty (short sleeve) is built with a 2.5-layer Hyprotex waterproof-breathable material, comfortable neoprene neck and arm seals, and a neoprene waist cinch to keep water out.

The women’s jacket is available in sizes XS-XL, while the men’s is available in sizes S-2XL.

NRS Hydroskin Gloves (40% Off)

New hydro skin gloves

Fingerless gloves are great in summer, but for year-round paddling, it’s smart to have a pair of neoprene gloves for extra protection. These HydroSkin NRS gloves are made with 0.5mm neoprene, a ThermalPlush inner lining for a bit of insulation, a fitted wrist cuff, and DWR coating — all coming together to form a great glove to cut the chill.

This is definitely a gift for the whitewater pros. The Astral GreenJacket is a favorite among the most hardcore of paddlers, and here’s why: it’s a low-profile jacket with tons of components, including multiple storage pockets.

The GreenJacket is made with PVC-free foam and a burly and durable 500-denier CORDURA fabric. Essential features for big water paddling on this vest include a lash tab for a rescue knife and storage specific for a throw rope bag. Plus, it’s got a quick-release rescue harness tack-stitched into the vest.

These tie-down straps make a unique and fun stocking stuffer — and not just for paddlers, but general outdoorists who like to keep their gear in order. The straps come in 2-, 4-, 6-, 8-, 10-, and 12-foot varieties, all color coded so you can tell which you need at a glance. Our paddle editor always likes to keep a few of each length on hand (specifically the 4-8-foot range straps) come paddle season.
