Is this recreational kayaking? Do you have a sit-in or a sit-on? I have been recreationally kayaking for years in the north (Mi), I have a sit-on, and I wear a range of clothing from water-resistant, to leggings, shorts, sweatpants, hoodies, all depends on what you plan on doing. I kayak on a lake and will fish occasionally. I don't normally get wet because I go on calm days in the fall or spring. In the summer, bathing suits all the way.
Best brands I have found to be comfortable, water-resistant, and not restricting:
Columbia: shirts, cargo pants, sweaters. Look at some of their fishing gear.
UnderArmour: shorts, sweat pants, leggings
Northface: Waterproof jackets/shells
Athleta: they have some nice quick-dry leggings
LuluLemon occasionally, if I am feeling fancy 🙂
Helly Hanson: they have a VERY nice sailing collection, however, they are pricy.
one or more gifts or other benefits from the co-op.
