The new year is bringing some warm weather to western pa this weekend. The snow melt and little bit of rain should provide some great New Years day boating in the region. Even though the forecast is calling for temperatures in the 50’s, it is still January and the water is cold.
This is why my gear pick of the week is Immersion Research’s Union suit! A dry suit is a great piece of gear but the union suit with a good semi-dry or dry top works perfectly for a 40F-50F winter boating day.
Keep your eyes on the gauges and enjoy bringing in the new year with a day of paddling
