This paddling jacket(drytop) is fully venting and breathable. It is double skirted to efectively keep out water when rolling or in heavy seas. There are Cordura elbow patches padded with airex foam and two roomy pockets. It also has neoprene covered wrist gaskets and made of Immersion-Tec Gore-Tex that has fully taped seams through out.
This is a great company to deal with, they spare nothing when it comes to quality and there customer service is second to none. This is a very comforatable, very dry jacket that does not confine or restrict you in any way. It is great on those cool spring and fall days. I strongly recomend choosing gore-tex for any paddling jacket or drysuit. I have used both and the condensation that builds up after four or five hours of paddling in laminated nylon will wet you to a point that it is silly to wear anything at all. Those products that dont breathe are a waste of your money. Give this company a chance to outfit you, you wont be let down.
