Wear Appropriate Shoes
When traveling down a zipline, the last thing you want to worry about is losing a flip-flop! Keep in mind that you may need to walk a little bit to get to each course. For your comfort and safety, wear sneakers, tennis shoes, or other comfortable shoes that will not fall off.
Wear Well-Fitting Clothes
Because the harness is such an important piece of equipment for ziplining, you need to make sure that it fits snugly around you. If you wear clothes that are too baggy, the harness may not fit as well, so try to pick something form fitting.
