Kokatat Paclite Anorak : Paddle Perfect

I like to get a good workout when I'm paddling in my sea kayak, so I want gear that's breathable and light.  Kokatat's Gore-Tex® Paclite™ Anorak is just the ticket.  

It's the lightest jacket I've ever had--and the most protective. The super thin Paclite material stands up to driving rain and gusty winds with flying colors.  I've worn it on long paddles in wet, wet, wet weather and around town in rainstorms, and   I've always stayed dry and comfortable.  I wear my jacket pretty much year-round, but its light weight and breathability make it ideal for summer paddling. It's also easy to scrunch into a day pack or cockpit.

Some sea kayakers like to blend into the environment, but I'd rather be seen. The storm hood and sleeve pocket are lined with a high-visibility reflective neon piping. It's subtle design-wise, but very visible from a distance.

Other great features are the comfy pile collar that protects me from the elements (water and wind when kayaking), the handy sleeve zip pocket where I stash my keys and lip balm, and the pile-lined hand warmer pockets on the front of the anorak.

I found this jacket runs big, so you might want to go down a size down if you're one of those in-between people like me. There's an adjustable elastic draw cord closure at the waist and hem to compensate for the extra room.

Bottom LIne: Form, function, and style blend perfectly in this anorak.   Light enough to wear year-round for sea kayak touring and around town.--J.I. (Dec 06)
