Canyon Voyages Adventure Co
Clothing and Gear for Cooler Weather

Canyon Voyages, Moab, UtahIn October, Moab’s weather is usually sunny beautiful and warm. Occasionally, though, it can be cloudy, windy and downright cold. But that doesn’t mean you can’t stay cozy, warm and dry while you’re out exploring in Arches National Park, mountain biking on the Slickrock trail, or just strolling along downtown Main Street.

Canyon Voyages Adventure Co. has all the cool weather apparel and accessories to help you enjoy Moab’s outdoor wonders. To warm-up with out adding bulk, start with a base layer of long underwear made of 4-way stretch material that also wicks moisture away from your skin to keep you comfortably dry. Next, you can add a mid-layer zip-neck or pullover from Columbia Sportswear or Sportif. Or, try a stylish Woolrich sweater. It’s not just about function … this year’s colors and styles are great, too! Sizes are available for both men and women, small through extra large.

If you need a little more to cut the chill factor, check out the new “soft shell” jackets. This revolutionary new fabric features 4-way stretch, breathability and windproof qualities. Plus they shed water like a duck! And, if it’s time to replace your winter ski parka, Canyon Voyages Adventure Co. has those too.

For adventures into the backcountry, light-weight hiking shoes by Vasque and Salomon provide ample support and comfort. If you’re the type who always has cold feet, we have just the answer … cozy fleece socks by Wyoming Wear or hard-wearing Merino wool socks by SmartWool. A fleece hat is just the thing to keep your noggin warm and toasty. And don’t forget gloves. Remember, Canyon Voyages Adventure Co. has got you covered for just about any adventure or activity.

For cool weather paddling adventures, Canyon Voyages Adventure Co. offers a great selection of NRS products including Hydroskin long-sleeve tops, pants and socks. Hydroskin is a wind-resistant fabric that resists abrasion and offers a warmth factor similar to a 2.5 millimeter neoprene garment. It can be worn alone or as a base layer. In addition, Canyon Voyages offers a great selection of life jackets, dry bags, dry tops and spray gear for your cool weather boating needs.

Camping during the off season can be just as comfortable as during warmer months providing that you have the right gear. One “must-have” is a sleeping mattress to make your nights cozy and comfortable. At Canyon Voyages, you will find a complete line of Jack’s Plastics Paco Pads … the “Cadillac” of self-inflating sleeping pads. These offer not only superior comfort, but great insulating value as well. There are numerous other accessories to outfit your camping trip needs including tent stakes, water containers, CamelBak hydration packs, camp stoves, fuel, cookware, utensils, coffee presses, first aid kits, tarps, headlamps and much more.
