Finding apparel to wear on the river can be hard especially if you're new to the paddling world, that is why Level Six has created a casual apparel line that makes it easy to go from the river to the cottage bbq.
Here's a handpicked outfit for both men and women that is perfect for summer days at the river.
Women's Casual Summer outfit:
Sun Protection Top:
Level Six's Mist Hoodie; designed with a large hood to protect your neck from the sun, is perfect to throw on over a swimsuit to help you enjoy your favorite water sports longer. When looking for a good sun protection top it's important to look for something with a high UPF rating like the Mist hoodie with UPF 50+ sun protection. Level Six's lightweight summer hoodie features flatlock seams to reduce chafing and front pockets with an invisible zipper.
Level Six's lightweight Mist hoodie is created with Quick-dry hydro shield nano yarn to give the hoodie a water-resistant finish- yes that's right you get splashed and the water will bead off your hoodie!
When heading out on the river it's important to have a pair of boardshorts that are both comfortable and able to perform. Look for shorts, like the Switched boardshorts, that are constructed from quick-drying material and hyper stretch fabric, to keep you comfortable both on the river and onshore.
Made to be truly reversible, these shorts are great whether you're looking for a classic solid color or feeling more adventurous.
When you're on your SUP it's important to protect yourself from the sun as much as possible. We recommended finding a ball cap or a sun hat to keep the sun off your face. Level Six's Corky trucker hat is a perfect cap to keep the sun off your face and since it's made with all-natural cork, the hat floats should you drop it in the water.
Men's Casual Summer outfit:
As always it's important to start with a solid sun protection layer for your top layer. Look for something with a UPF rating of 50+ sun protection like Level Six's Vapour sun-protective hoodie. This lightweight hoody is a great way to keep the sun off of your skin while on the water and keep you comfortable during your apres sessions.
Just like Level Six's women's Mist hoodie, the men's Vapour hoody is created with flatlock seams, front pockets with an invisible zipper and Quick-dry hydro shield nano yarn to give the hoodie a water-resistant finish.
Once you've found a great sun protection top, find a pair of comfortable board shorts to wear on the water. Level Six's Slanted board shorts are available in colors that perfectly match the lightweight summer hoody.
The Slanted board shorts are designed for maximum comfort on the water with a back half elastic waistband and constructed from hyper stretch fabric.
