SOME ITEMS NOT TO WEAR
Really waterproof pants or jackets tend not to breathe.
This makes it this makes it difficult to regulate your temperature. Plus it holds in perspiration and you get wet inside when you row.
– when it gets wet, it doesn’t keep you warm – just the opposite. It also doesn’t wick moisture away from the skin.
No down – When down gets wet, it will clump, get very heavy and is not insulating.
Avoid open pockets as your oar handles can get caught in them. Also avoid loose tops, bulky jackets or really bulky pants.
