Which features make our paddling jacket such an obvious choice?
Waterproof. Breathable. Windproof. Lightweight. Articulated. (We could go on.)
It used to be protection from rain while you were paddling meant you wore a heavy vinyl poncho that more closely resembled a tent than a jacket, acted like a sail in the wind and left you feeling as sweaty as an 80s aerobics video underneath. It's a wonder anyone ever paddled in the rain. Our Men's Scull Jacket was designed to not only protect you from wind and rain, but to ensure your ultimate comfort along the way.
This lightweight jacket features two-layer construction: a nylon shell layer with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating to make water just bead up and run off is bonded to a waterproof, breathable laminate layer with a thin nylon backing. There isn't a lining so you can easily slip your Scull Jacket on over mid-layer clothing without binding. All the seams are also taped to seal out moisture trying to squeeze through their tiny openings. Hook-and-loop wrist adjusters and Dartex trim improve the seal needed to stop water intrusion up your sleeves.
The attached hood is articulated (jointed) so it won't impede your vision as you move your head and includes one-handed shock cord adjusters so you won't miss a stroke cinching it down tight when the wind kicks up. Speaking of articulated, the elbows are also cut just right so you'll enjoy a full range of motion without your jacket getting in your way. The hem is longer in the back than the front to help keep you covered as you stretch forward paddling or grabbing gear from the deck in front of you. You'll also find mesh-lined hand warmer pockets, a chest pocket and even a lower arm pocket, all with water-resistant zippers to stash essentials securely. Finally, reflective trim details provide extra visibility in low-light situations. 100% nylon with polyurethane coating. Imported.
