Brief Description

Kokatat Gore-Tex® TecTour Anorak paddling jacket is the best sea kayaking jacket. Combine it with a farmer John wet suit and you'll be dressed for paddling in wind and rain. The Kokatat TecTour jacket has a well designed hood that moves with your head when you turn to look behind. There's no neck gasket to choke or chafe your neck, but it does have the all important dry suit style latex gaskets at the wrists. Without wrist gaskets a long sleeve jacket just collects water in the sleeves until the water runs down your back when you lift your arm for a draw stroke to pull yourself ashore. Being able to cover your head and neck to prevent heat loss and hypothermia when the wind blows allows you to wear thinner layers under the jacket, and thus you can stay comfortable over a broader temperature range than with any other paddling top.

Detailed Description

The waterproof / breathable Gore-Tex shell fabric is part of what makes this the best paddle jacket around, and all the seams are seam-taped by Kokatat which makes it the highest quality GoreTex paddling jacket period. The TecTour comes with: zippered, self-draining pockets on both sleeves that give you easy access to your camera, GPS, sun screen, and other essentials, reflective tape on sleeves and hood for safety, and the bottom of the jacket has two layers, the inner layer tucks inside your spray skirt and the out outer layer fits outside your skirt. This sandwiching of the spray skirt keeps your kayak drier when taking waves in the chest.

If you like the features of this jacket but not its price, see Kokatat's Tropos TecTour Anorak which is virtually the same design but less expensive thanks to the waterproof / breathable Tropos fabric.
