Jackets for Inland Touring and Sea Kayaking

These Cags Are Recommended For Sea Kayaking, Inland Kayak Touring & Open Canoeing.


Sea kayakers and inland touring paddlers as a rule spend more time upright with their heads above water than white water kayakers. All day comfort and performance is the primary objective with these cags. Hence perhaps a full dry top with a tight, latex neck seal might be over doing it.

The higher performing touring/sea kayaking cags will have latex wrist seals to prevent any water flushing or paddle drips inside the arms. However, when it comes to the neck things change. These jackets have the ability to be opened up, allowing them to vent if required and also are much less restrictive than a white water dry top. When conditions change or if the paddler is at rest, the hood can be put to good use, and the collar system can be closed up providing protection from the elements.

The UK has a varied coastline, extensive canal network and many lakes, lochs and tarns. These jackets are perfect for exploring and spending time out on the water in comfort, whatever the weather.
