Essential gear pieces we love to take out every time we hit the river. These items are great for a day at the beach or a multi-day white knuckled rafting trip through the American West.
Floating a river is like a movie production. There is so much prep work that goes into getting everything ready. Gear checks, mental prep, transferring gear, grabbing ice, by the time you reach the river... you're likely reaching for a white flag to surrender to the preparation gods. We put together some of our favorite gear pieces from our recent float expeditions and included many of the smaller items we either found ourselves wishing we had or that came through in the clutch to save our day.
