Shopping Sites for Kayak Gear
Shopping for kayak, paddling or outdoor gear? Here is a list of some of the best online shopping sites for essential gear for kayaking, paddling and other outdoor activities.
These shops were chosen because of their size, gear selection, equipment advice, tips, and experience in either online e-tailing or brick-and-mortar retailing. They typically offer plenty of accessories for most paddlers at most skill levels.
