Would this be better to wear as an outer layer or base layer for whitewater kayaking a cold river during summer?

Hiya Casey,

In my experience, this piece functions much better as an insulating layer if it's directly against the skin. Once it gets wet, the fleece holds some water, which heats up nicely from being in contact with your body.

I've definitely layered other stuff on top of it (a Hydroskin, for example) though, since it doesn't provide much protection where wind is concerned.

I hope this information is useful. Feel free to reach out if you've got any other paddling related questions-- either 800.409.4502 ext 4456 or llabar@backcountry.com!
