Best Kayaking Gear: Our Paddle-tested Picks

We’ve spent tons of time researching and testing the best kayaking gear we can find. These are our favorite paddle-tested, Paddle Camp-approved, and pretty cool kayaking gear picks.

These picks aren’t necessarily the most expensive, highest-end items out there, because we have budgets too. Our goal is to help beginning kayakers find the best and most affordable kayaks and kayaking gear that will help you enjoy the sport without breaking your bank.

This is the stuff we use and abuse.
