We ALWAYS wear PFD's, even in the heat of the summer.
Mostly since 2006 (I built a canvas on wood frame kayak in the 1960's, long since disintegrated).
12', 14' and 16' Wilderness Systems Tsunami's, 16' Necky Zoar, 17' Prijon Kodiak.
Daytrips on weekends, maybe an overnight once in a while.
We have drysuits, neoprene gloves, pogies, booties and hats, etc.
My wife Betsy and I purchased kayaks in 2006 and now go fairly regularly. We've been on multi-day trips a few times, so far only in the Adirondack Park in NY. I don't know why we have five kayaks and a canoe for just the two of us...
