Clothing and Gear for Cooler Weather
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
