Brief Description

A short sleeve paddle jacket like the Torrent Short Sleeve Pullover is something just about every kayaker can use. It is a great shell to wear over your farmer john wet suit, or on warm water trips you can wear it by itself. For kayakers, most long sleeve paddle jackets are inappropriate because, unless the jacket has actual dry suit gaskets at the wrists (i.e. a dry top), water runs up the sleeves and pools at your elbows. A short sleeve jacket solves this problem at a fraction of the cost of a dry top or other jacket with wrist gaskets. And when it’s too cold for short sleeves, it’s generally good weather for wearing a dry suit. So even though we have good long sleeve paddle jackets (with wrist gaskets), our short sleeve jackets get a lot more use.

Detailed Description

Stohlquist’s Torrent Short Sleeve jacket is windproof, breathable, and waterproof except for the seams (and generally if that’s a problem then it’s dry suit weather). It’s made of waterproof/ breathable 2 ½-layer Eclipse fabric shell. The Torrent Short Sleeve has soft neoprene cuffs at the neck and sleeves, a front chest pocket, and a draw cord at the waist.
