Kayaks and Canoes
Sierra Trading Post knows there's a lot to love about kayaking and canoeing. Maybe you relish the feeling of the water surging around your whitewater boat, or the feeling of gravity pulling you down the chute. Or maybe, you prefer to paddle your touring boat, enjoying a weekend of exploring bays, rivers or lakes. Whether wandering a coastline, fishing or pushing yourself to make that last 12 km before nightfall, you need to have good gear for safety and enjoyment. We want to help you paddle safely, comfortably and in INCA3. We have a large variety of whitewater and touring kayaks, canoes and related gear: basics like paddles, PFDs (life vests), and paddling apparel by Extrasport, O'Neill and Camaro of Austria. We also carry accessories like multisport helmets by Bern and have a huge selection of dry and semi-dry tops.
Sierra Trading Post offers kayaks from Ocean Kayaks, Old Town and more for the beginner to the advanced paddler. We also carry great canoes for easy days on the lake. Whether you are looking to move up to a newer, better boat or just starting off with your first one, Sierra Trading Post has the high-quality, name brands you want at big discounts.
Without a good paddle, the precision of your technique is wasted. An inferior, heavy or poorly made paddle creates an inefficient stroke, resulting in fatigue, cramps and wasted energy. Avoid the pitfalls of using poor quality equipment and save money in the process with our selection of top-quality paddles.
The most important safety equipment for any on-the-water adventure is a PFD (personal flotation device). PFDs are necessities, even for the best of swimmers. When you choose from top brands like Extrasport, Body Glove, O'Neill and more, you know that performance, durability and safety are top-notch.
Helmets are a must-have for whitewater adventures, and Sierra Trading Post offers several models to keep you protected in INCA3. Smith Optics, Bern and more brands await you for more adventure on the water.
Dry tops are a great choice for comfort and safety as temperatures begin to drop, while semi-dry tops may be a better choice for slightly warmer conditions. These tops come in long sleeve or short sleeve models and are designed to layer breathable clothing underneath if needed. When used with a spray skirt, a dry top completely seals out water from the boat and from reaching your torso. Both dry tops and semi-dry tops are designed for complete freedom of movement in the arms and shoulders for paddling, and are generally considered more comfortable than a neoprene wetsuit.
For paddling in frigid waters where you need form-fitting insulation, a wetsuit is the best choice. When it comes to wetsuits, brands like Camaro and Body Glove to keep you warmer longer.
Teva watersport sandals were designed by river guides to keep your feet protected and healthy anytime you are around the water. Other brands like Timberland and Chaco also make excellent water shoes for kayak and canoe paddlers.
A waterproof dry bag keeps important gear protected from unexpected dunkings, sudden rain showers and emergency situations on the water. Sierra Trading Post has a good selection of dry bags from Seattle Sports and others. Dry bags are especially useful on extended trips where food and other items must be kept dry and out of the weather.
Sierra Trading Post has a huge selection of all the things that make your time around camp more enjoyable. Camp stoves, sleeping pads, tents and flashlights from brands like Sierra Designs, Marmot and many more to keep your overnight paddling trips enjoyable.
