One paddle jacket, for everything.

If you’re doing the Coast to Coast Race for the first time and are looking for a single paddle jacket that can take you all the way from Grade 2 Course to C2C Race, then the Vertigo is your one-jacket solution at a very affordable price.

Due to the double-waist tunnel and latex wrist gaskets, this “do-it-all” semi-dry jacket is (just) dry enough to see you through a cold dunking during your Grade 2 Course. The soft and comfortable neck-gasket make it the perfect choice for your first Guided Trips down the Waimak’ Gorge. While the main body fabric is light enough for either wearing or stowing during the Coast to Coast Race itself.

As you can see in the Jacket Performance Guide below, the Vertigo scores reasonably well across a wide range of paddling scenarios, making it one of our most versatile and therefore popular jackets.

If you’re getting started with multisport paddling and not sure which jacket to buy first, we recommend you grab yourself a Vertigo.
