Bilge Pump - Rule 12 VDC Switch controlled pumps - If you are going to make your own electric bilge pump, here is the starting point.
Compass Options - I can't see most kayak compass cards. They are too small. Here is some of the bigger ones meant for mounting on small boats and some hand held bearing compasses.
Desalinators - Making fresh water from salt water.
Emergency Kayak Repair Materials - One day, if you venture far enough, you will need to do a repair during an expedition. It would be wise to have repair materials with you.
Helmets - Gath - Brain Buckets with Style - Most sea kayaking does not call for a helmet. It just isn’t that likely that your head will fetch up on something hard. But if you are paddling about in the surge around the rocks, or riding a big wave into the beach, you might appreciate a little protection if things go badly.
Interesting products - Here are miscellaneous products that kayakers might find interesting and useful.
Kayak - Nigel Dennis Kayaks - Explorer - Matt keeps finding things to love about his Nigel Denis Kayaks Explorer kayak.
Lighting and Visibility for kayaks at night - Kayaks are required to have emergency lights and lights for operation at night. Being visible is a good thing. Here are some options.
Personal Flotation Device X-Tract-D Rescue Type - Stohlquist makes good PFDs - personal flotation devices. So I was looking forward to reviewing what should be their top of the line PFD - a rescue vest. I was disappointed.
Personal Locator Beacon for 406 MGz Satellite Personal EPIRB - When they aren't looking for you this will bring them. This expensive piece of equipment might be justified on a very remote expedition in dangerous waters.
Personal Locator Beacon for Search and Rescue Operations. - DISCONTINUED::::121.5 and 243 MHz EPIRBS If they are out looking for you this will help. It transmits on the Search and Rescue Frequency to help locate misplaced travelers.
Personal Messenger SPOT - For casual use, and SPOTty emergency use, this piece of relatively inexpensive technology deserves consideration for those who need to check in on a long trip where other communication is unavailable.
Roof Rack - Malone Sea Wings - With a low profile, low drag, sturdy construction, this rack is a great choice if the shape of your kayak is amenable to the rather flat shape of these unusual car top racks. They look good too!
Shoes - Mion - Current and Flood Tide - Mion is a new manufacturer of active and technical footwear. Their two new models, the Current and the Flood Tide, are water shoes with attractive features. Find out how we rate them.
Shoes - Teva Gamma water shoe - This is the worst shoe I have ever had the misfortune of putting on my feet. In less than 30 minutes and one mile of walking in these shoes and I had a quarter sized bloody blister on both heels. Run don't walk away from these shoes.
Solar Recharger - Brunton Solarport 4.4 - Long trips far from stores can require many batteries. Here are some renewable options. None are fully waterprrof.
Spray Skirts - Sea Kayak spray skirts should keep water out of your boat while allowing you to make all the movements required to paddle and right a kayak in comfort and style. We review three categories of spray skirt from the top three manufacturers.
Tarp - CGear Sand Free Multimat - Sometimes you see a piece of equipment used in another context and think, "That would work well for kayaking." Sometimes it works out brilliantly. Sometimes its a disaster. Sometimes the result is mixed as it was in this case.

Toilet - Commercial Portable - Portable Toilet small enough for Kayak.
Toilet - Portable - Homemade - Build your own kayak portable toilet.
