For nearly all outdoor activities, proper equipment and clothing add to the experience.
Skiers wear apparel designed for protection against the elements and flexibility of movement. Fly fishers wear waterproof boots and waders. Each activity has its own special requirements. ATV riding is no different.
ATV riding requires protection for head, eyes, hands, and feet, flying debris, or contact with foliage. Although complete protection is not possible, knowing what to wear and how to wear it can make you feel more comfortable when you ride and reduce the chance of injury. Never operate an ATV or ride as a passenger without a quality motorcycle helmet, eye protection, boots, gloves, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt or jacket.
