Defend yourself against extreme conditions with the Windward Jacket from Stearns.
Constructed from soft, Suisse Aire™ flotation foam that provides 15.5 pounds of buoyancy encased in a water-resistant nylon shell; the Windward offers extreme protection. The mid-thigh design and concealed hood help keep your head and body warm in cold weather while the storm cuffs and sealed seams keep the elements at bay.
High visibility is achieved by strategically placing SOLAS-grade reflective material on the arms and shoulders along with the bright orange coloring. Store your gear and keep your hands warm in the cargo pockets. With an internal adjustable belt, heavy-duty zipper, buckle at the waist and tie strap at the bottom, the Windward offers a securely snug fit for all your cold water activities.
