  There was one, once

Funny, I just mentioned this in another thread - the Lotus Skanorak was a paddling jacket designed to go on over a pfd. It's a long discontinued, very nicely made item (Lotus was owned by Patagonia).

I have a barely used one I should let go - I just don't do any cold-weather paddling. It was very useful for one week in coastal Maine in June (you know, 78 degrees at lunchtime, then the clouds roll in and it's 55 and raining two hours later). I wear XL in Kokatat paddling top, and the Skanorak in L fits over my pfd and a base layer with no problem.

You can check out some reviews of it here, has some decent pics, too:

I was planning to put an ad on p-net soon, let me know if you're interested...
