  • Neoprene socks - Or booties, to keep your feet dry.
  • Buoyancy aid - To keep you afloat the water, especially in fast moving rapids. Short swims are a necessary part of navigating a canyon.
  • Throw bag - Something your guide will probably have. This is a specialised weighted bag attached to a rope, which is thrown to someone in the water. The receiver catches it and can be hauled to dry land by the thrower.
  • Neoprene elbow and knee guards - Not essential but a really nice extra level of protection for sensitive body parts, considering that you are going to be scrabbling around on slippery rocks.
  • Other items of clothing you may need to take are:

  • Sports towel - Naturally, to dry off. Find a special sports towel that is quick drying and compact - you don’t want to be bulked down unnecessarily.
