Q&A: What to Wear on a River Rafting Trip

Q:  I am going on a river floating trip with my boyfriend in the next few weeks, what can I wear over my swimsuit that will be functional and stylish?

Water Girl Un-Dress Tunic A:  Function comes before form when packing for a river rafting trip.  You’ll be boating down a river, so be prepared to get wet.  But you’ll also be in direct sunlight for a good portion of the trip, so it’s best to be able to adjust your clothing for the weather and water conditions.  Here’s three fashion tips for your river rafting trip:

Dress in Layers:  On top, we recommend a loose fitting tunic in a lightweight fabric, such as the Water Girl Un-Dress Tunic (pictured).  Shorts are also a simple, functional option for the summer heat.  A less-conventional option is a sarong, which is a great swimsuit cover-up that also doubles as a dressy item to wear at camp post-rafting. 

Wear Quick-drying Clothes:  You’ll be getting wet, so wear lightweight clothes that dry quickly.  Look for materials like polyester, nylon, polypropylene, capilene or fleece.

Remember your Sun Hat:
  Either choose one with a security draw cord or purchase a separate hat clip so as not to lose the hat if the ride gets rocky.
