Immersion Research Zephyr Long Sleeve Paddling Jacket for Women

The true meaning of an all-around versatile jacket! Made from a burly WhiteOut waterproof and breathable 2-layer fabric with paddle sport-proven ergonomic cut, the jacket has extra material in the back to allow better range of motion when paddling.

womens paddling jacketZephyr paddling jackets feature a separate mesh inner liner on the inside of the splash top which makes the jacket breathe. Antimicrobial liner prevents bacterial growth and allows you to wear the jacket next-to skin without feeling clammy. You can wear a short sleeve layer on a warmer day. Liner keeps the top from smelling bad after wearing it for long periods of time.

Drawstring waist closure tightens around spray skirt, keeping the jacket hem in place, velcro hook and loop neck and wrist closures seal out small amounts of water. They are heavy duty, comfortable, and fit well.

Fully taped seams in the inside don’t allow water to penetrate the stitched seams, which enhances the dryness. The outer fabric sheds water like gel coat.

Front zippered chest pocket with semi-dry zipper holds securely small essentials.

Zephyr protects against splashes and rain in rough conditions. It's versatile enough to wear in chilly weather for kayak fishing, rafting out in the rapids, or during a stand up paddling workout in the fall.

The Zephyr features paddling-specific cut with ergonomic seaming for better articulation of your arms. The top was specifically designed for kayaking, which means that the arms move very freely.

Overall, this jacket is a solid option for a splash top if you are looking for a semi-dry top or something lighter to keep the spray off of you.
