Canoe Trip Survival

1. Use the Petzl MYO XP headlamp as your guiding light. Its wide-angle LED lamp will help you spot gators. Coolest feature: The "boost" button shines a piercing ray over nearly 300 feet for 20 seconds. ($80, en.petzl.com)

2. Mosquitoes won't bug you when you wear the ExOfficio Insect Shield Halo long-sleeve shirt. An essential piece of canoe gear, this jacket is treated with Insect Shield, an odorless, man-made version of the repellent produced by chrysanthemums that lasts up to 70 washings, the nylon top is your best defense against the wetlands' hungry swarms. ($85, exofficio.com
)

3. Gramicci Vagabond pants look and feel like cotton, but they're made of a soft, piece of outdoor clothing that's made of light-weight nylon that doesn't absorb nearly as much water. Stay cool in the Louisiana heat by converting these cargo-style pants, which are coated with an SPF 30 sunscreen, to shorts: Zip off the legs right above the knees. ($70, gramicci.com
)

4. Move from the shore to your canoe without giving your feet a mud bath with New Balance 920 sneakers. Thanks to tiny tubes along the edges of the soles, the comfy shoes drain water, sand, and slosh fast. ($90, nbwebexpress.com
)

5. See all that happens in the basin after the sun goes down with the compact Bushnell Night Vision monoculars, which have infrared illuminators and a viewing range from one to 600 feet. (from $150, opticsplanet.com
)
