With our combined 6+ decades guiding rafting trips throughout the world, we know that the difference between an enjoyable experience and a miserable one can often come down to what you bring. Our recommended gear is made up of items we’ve tested and depend on ourselves. We have included mid-range and higher-end products for each category to set you up for success.
When shopping, keep these three guidelines in mind:
- On the water can be a harsh environment particularly when in the desert like Grand Canyon. When it comes to rain gear, UPH clothing and footwear it pays to invest in higher quality products.
- Protecting yourself from the intense sun should be taken seriously.
- Be sure to read over your outfitter’s packing list and ask why you need to bring a certain item if you don’t understand.
