I have been looking for a warm, comfortable pair of paddling pants for a long time, In WA we don't have a great range to choose from. I wore these for the first time yesterday morning, 6am, 10degrees celsius with a fresh 10k NW wind. At first after launching into the ocean and getting the lower part of my legs wet, I felt cold and sceptical, however after paddling for 150m or so, I soon warmed up. Further along I ended up with a fish in my lap, dolphins playing under the front of my boat, and a super moon to light my way. Cold? not at all. Turns out these pants are super comfy, (knew that from the outset) and kept me warm throughout my whole paddle. Thanks Vaikobi, looking forward to trying more in this range.
