Gear-up for Adventure Sports with the Best Outdoor Clothing

By Fiona Muller Subscribe to RSS | February 9th 2012 | Views:

Adventure sports in essence are dangerous. That is why it is an adventure. Injuries are expected, and the going is rough on the body. Sometimes, accidents can be fatal, and sometimes they produce injuries which cripple the enthusiast. Before embarking on adventure sports, the enthusiast needs to equip oneself with the adequate gear for the particular sports. Outdoor clothing is the most important part of the equipment. Proper outdoor clothing is a not a luxury to the serious or casual adventure sportsperson.It dramatically reduces the risk factor. The key to safe adventure sports, though it may sound like an oxymoron, is being properly fitted with gear.

There is a huge variety of outdoor clothing to choose from and choices are to be made according to the nature of adventure sports undertaken. Men’s and women’s waterproof jackets come handy to the white water rafter, blazing down rapids at breakneck speed. Ultra Violet ray protected sunglasses are absolutely essential for people who venture into the realm of ice and snow. Reflected sunlight can and does cause blindness. One’s eyes need to be protected with the proper eyewear. Insulation wear is imperative for the adventurer probing into sub zero zones. The varieties are many, and these include microfleece, gilets, fleece jackets, softshell jackets, down jackets and synthetic insulation jackets. Unless you are adequately protected against the cold, a frost bite can cause permanent harm, and you could be crippled for the rest of your life. Exposure to extreme cold due to lack of proper outdoor clothing leads to hypothermia that often proves fatal.

In the equipment category, the choice is mind boggling. From handheld GPS devices to navigate through unchartered and unmanned terrain, to tents which are impervious to the rigors of an outdoor life,from snow boots to climbing gear, from rucksacks to water purification instruments - the choice is humungous. While head torches come handy when going deep into stalagmite caves, ski helmets protect the winter sportsmen from a head injury from a tumultuous slide down the icy slopes. From swimming goggles to walking or running shoes, from neck gaiters to boxing gear, a vast choice is on offer.If you are into snorkeling or diving, a waterproof watch especially manufactured to withstand corrosion by salt water is a must.

It is imperative to buy equipment and outdoor clothing of the best and most trusted brands. Three most trusted brands are Berghaus, The North Face, and Rab. Adventure sports veterans vouch by equipment manufactured by these makers. Serious climbers and competitive skiers use their gear. Though the equipmentsare expensive, they are of top notch quality. Karrimor and Leki are other two brands which are highly regarded.

Outdoor clothingis a necessity. In instances too numerous to narrate, proper equipment, or lack of it, has spelt the doom of many an adventurer. Invest in the suitable gear, even splurge on it. When it comes to the crunch, it will keep you alive.
