There is a saying, ''There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes.'' This can be applied to many things, clothes and equipment. It goes without saying that when you are putting yourself against the elements, your equipment must be 100% reliable. Over forty years as a paddler, I have seen enormous changes in kayaking equipment, and all for the better as far as safety is concerned.
I have my own personal preferences and reasons to the equipment and clothing I use. From experience, over many years I have found what is suitable for me and use only equipment I believe in and will not fail me when the going gets tough. I need equipment that will keep me warm with air temperatures as low as -20C and in comfort. I need a kayak that responds to all my needs, paddles for different types of paddling, and clothing to suit all weathers.
