Keeping you cool while keeping water out.
Even if the sun is pounding on the water and you’re paddling hard, you know you shouldn’t ditch your jacket to stay cool. But how can you survive in the glaring sunshine with your usual heavy gear? With the Rasdex Classic Multisport Paddling Jacket, you don’t have to overheat just to stay dry.
Made from lightweight ripstop, this waterproof top allows your skin to breathe freely—even in warmer weather or while racing. A convenient opening mesh neck complements the breathable fabric, enabling ample ventilation if needed. Long sleeves protect you from sunshine and spray, while an unrestrictive fit in the body and arms provides ample room for movement. Adjustable wrists allow for a tight seal, loose wrists, or pushed-up sleeves, depending on the weather. Whether you’re competing in Christchurch’s Classic River Race or braving your local river at noon in January, this paddling jacket will protect you during hot days on the water.
- Waterproof yet breathable fabric.
