Great cold/wet weather addition

Such a great product, I wish I had bought one years ago. Cuts the chill out of the wind, keeps you dry in the drizzle, but you don't seem to get too hot. I use it all the time now.

Perfect cool weather gear

This is my go to for cool autumn paddling especially during windy days. It kept my core warm and dry. For ladies, the sizing for the vest does run big so I would size down.

Fit Tips

If one of your body measurements is in between two sizes, order the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit. If your body measurements for hips and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, order the one indicated by your hip measurement.

How To Measure

WAIST: Measure around the narrowest part (typically where your body bends side to side), keeping the tape horizontal.
HIPS: Measure around the widest part of your hips, keeping the tape horizontal.
CHEST: Measure the fullest area of your chest. Stand up straight and breath normally.
