Cold Water Immersion and Survival « Kayak Dave’s

June 11th, 2012 · No Comments


I know I’ve talked about dressing for immersion more times than we can count, but I had to share this (older) blog post from Kayak Dave. While he rehashes a lot of what I’ve said in the past, he does say it a lot better than I ever have.

He also has a cool chart he borrowed indicating survival time in various water temperatures.

It may come as a shock to many but cold water ( less than 68 F) can be fatal regardless of the air temperature or your ability to swim.

Very important to keep in mind, and that’s why I’m pretty much always wearing my NRS Mission dry suit.
