The jacket performed brilliantly over the 3 days sea kayaking. It kept me warm and dry from the sea spray.
It has a generous cut allowing for numerous layers to be worn underneath. There was enough room that
it could have been put over the PDF if the weather had suddenly changed mid sound.
The gusseted neck when left opened allowed me to vent the jacket and control body heat while keeping me dry.
It dried quickly in the evenings in a light breeze and on returning home I hosed it down and all the salt deposits
were easily removed.
Talking to some tramper’s on the second evening they commented on how they were able to see us from 2-3 km
away due to one of us wearing the yellow-coloured jacket. Great safety feature for sea kayaking.
Overall – good colours, light, and fast drying. Great product.
I also used the jacket to do the Tui canyon. (it was also worn by 3 work colleges)
The jacket did exactly what I needed it to do, keeping the wind out and protecting my wetsuit from scrapes on the rocks.
5000mm seemed sealed nylon shell with neoprene cuffs and neck bands with an
elasticated draw cord at the waste. Hanging hook for drying on the back and
colour size tabs on the cuffs for fast size identification.
A toggle at the waist helps to keep the jacket snug and comfortable.
Designed specifically for paddling to provide movement of the arms.
It is perfect as a rental jacket with handy size colour tabs on the cuffs and no zips or pockets.
A handy hook on the back to hang the jacket to dry after a day out on the water.
Two great colours are available – Yellow & Blue
Meets compulsory Coast to Coast gear requirements for the kayak leg.
