Wetsuit and Splash Jacket Rental Information

Special clothing items such as a wetsuit and splash jacket may be required on some rafting trips, especially in the spring, early summer, and fall. This requirement is put in place for your comfort and safety, and wearing proper attire will ensure maximum enjoyment of your trip!

If your rafting trip requires a wetsuit and splash jacket, you may choose to rent from All-Outdoors, bring your own, rent elsewhere, or borrow from a friend.

Note: Wetsuits are always required on all Cherry Creek trips. You are welcome to bring your own, otherwise one will be provided for you without rental cost (valid only on Cherry Creek).

Splash Jackets

Wetsuit and Splash Jacket Details:

Rentals accommodate sizes ranging from 5'2" and 100lbs to 6'5" and 270lbs. We have a variety of children sizes as well. If you fall outside these size ranges, you will need to rent from another source. Contact us for more information. Our wetsuits are 1/8" (3mm) thick, one piece "farmer johns" which fully cover the legs and upper body except for the arms. The coated nylon splash jacket will help protect your arms from the cold water.

Additional River Attire DO's and DON'Ts:

Do wear...

  • A swimsuit or another base layer under the wetsuit.
  • Laced-on athletic type shoes or hard-soled wetsuit booties for foot protection.
  • Wool or neoprene socks for warmth. Neoprene socks may be purchased for $15 at the meet place for most rivers. To ensure availability, contact us.
  • A wool or capilene sweater. This adds a layer of insulation under the splash jacket.
  • A wool hat and wool or neoprene gloves for added warmth on breezy, cloudy, or rainy days.
  • Boardshorts or other quick-dry shorts over your wetsuit. This reduces slippage while sitting on the raft.

Don't wear...

  • Cotton clothing. When wet, cotton acts like a sponge and can keep you cool even on a fairly warm day. Clothing made of tight knit wool, capilene, or polypropylene serves as a good insulator even when wet.
  • "Teva type" or "aqua-sock" type footwear. This is not appropriate for rafting because open-toed shoes do not provide enough protection for your feet while in the raft or during a swim.
