If you spend much time boating inshore, the Rio Vest is going to become your foul weather friend. Featuring Henri Lloyd’s waterproof, windproof TP fabric with fully taped seams, this essential layer sheds surface water on the outside via the Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish while the breathable lining transports water vapor and perspiration away from the inside. An extra mesh lining increases breathability as well as shortening drying time. Other boating-friendly features include a non-corrosive center front zipper, reflective back panel, two zippered side pockets, secure zippered internal pocket and a shockcord adjusting hem that’s longer in the back for coverage while bending and reaching. Also features a contoured silhouette to reduce wind drag. Imported.
