It's important to be prepared
for your rafting trip. You may encounter all types of weather and conditions. Planning ahead and having the proper gear will ensure you have a safe and enjoyable river rafting experience.
Through several decades of
experience on the river, Western
knows what clothing and gear will
keep you smiling every second
of your adventure. For your
convenience, you can find all these
items online with Westernâ€™s retail
division, Red Rock Outfitters. See details below
Gear on the River
All of your personal items should be
packed into a soft-sided duffle bag
approximately 12â€ť x 13â€ť x 24â€ť in size.
Due to aircraft weight allowances and
raft space, please limit your gear to 20
pounds, not including beverages (see
note on next page regarding beverages).
Upon arrival to the riverâ€™s edge, you will
be provided a water-resistant day bag
(approximately 7â€ť x 13â€ť). In this day bag,
you will want to put those items you
wish to access during the day (rain gear,
camera, medications, sun block, lip balm,
river guidebook, etc). We recommend
packing these items in a simple plastic
grocery sack inside your duffle for easy
transfer to your day bag at the launch site.
Also upon arrival at the launch site
of your trip, you will receive a water resistant
gear bag. This bag will contain
your sleeping bag, sheet and ground
tarp. You will put your duffle bag inside
this bag, roll the top down and clip it
securely to avoid getting your personal
gear wet. Your personal gear bag will be
available at camp each night of your trip.
